Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink (3) Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Polish: Rockstar Pink

Guest Review By Marianne

I’m normally very cautious when it comes to my makeup – I play it safe and stick to neutrals. However, I go all out when it comes to my manis..I love bright neon colours and nail art! I had been wanting to try a glitter polish and when I saw this one online one day, I loved it instantly!

Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink is a part of their Hard as Nails line. The consistency of the polish is just fine – not too thick or too runny. The drying time is fairly good too. The brush is of good quality and makes it easy to coat the nails in a couple of swipes.

My Views

Rockstar Pink is a clear base LOADED with multi-colour glitter. The majority is pink, but there is a lot of blue and some red and gold glitter as well. The overall colour on the nails looks purple (which was a slight disappointment for me as I was expecting a hot pink colour), but it’s a pretty purple and I do like it a lot! The saturation of the glitter is amazing…two coats give u semi-opacity and with three coats, you’ve got gorgeous, gorgeous opaque blingy nails! I keep looking at my nails and moving my fingers to see it sparkle as the light catches it! I’ve worn it as a top coat over other colours as well (it looked lovely over pink), though you have to be careful not to apply too much because the glitter intensity is enough to overpower the base colour even with one thick coat. It has a very gritty texture without a top coat, but I quite like it…it feels like I’m wearing those one of those liquid sand polishes.

What I didn’t like about this polish is that it was not really “xtreme wear”…it started chipping badly after just two days! The wear time can of course be increased with a good top coat but I do think that with such a tag, it should have lasted atleast a day or two more. On the upside, removing this polish is not too difficult…I imagined having to scrub away at my nails like the ladies in the ‘before’ part of detergent ads, but it’s not that tough a task!

Recommendation: Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink is an awesome pick if you love glitter polishes. It’s one of those can’t-stop-looking-at-it nail polishes. I only wish it wore longer on the nails. Recommended!
