Color Club’s Apollo Star

This truly is a foil finish, rather than a microglitter. Two coats gave me full opacity, and even with one coat the coverage was fairly solid. The finish is a little bit lumpier-looking, but the polish itself doesn’t snag on things or flake off. This manicure stayed in place, with no top coat, for three full days. (I left the top coat off partially as an experiment, to see how well the polish would perform on its own.)

This is similar to OPI’s Glitzerland, but a paler, brighter shade. It’s definitely too textured for use as a nail stamping polish; and I don’t know that most of us could get much good out of trying to use it for freehand nail art - though I’m sure that someone (or possibly even several someones) not only has made the attempt, but has done a good job.
