Today is all about getting my Christmas sparkles on, so I thought I’d share with you Orly’s FX in Rockets Red Glare. This is a great little polish if you want to add a bit of pazazz to a regular nail polish!

Orly FX Rockets Red Glare Nail Polish

As a rule I don’t like glitter nail polish. Its just not for me in honesty and I hate the agro of getting it off after. Yes I do know about the tin foil and acetone method, but generally I like something that I can wipe off with ease. Still, its Christmas time (Well almost) and at Christmas I do like a little sparkle. While having a browse on one of my favourite nail varnish sites and popping an order together, I came across Orly FX in Rockets Red Glare. This nail polish literally screams Christmas, so I bought it to share with you!

Rockets Red Glare is made up of a clear polish with red glitter particles. It also has some chunkier red glitter pieces in there. This is definitely a buildable polish, although drying time will be the key with this one. As this is not a polish I would wear alone, I’ve actually swatched it on a piece of paper demonstrating what 1 and 2 coats looks like so you can see how it builds up.

I always find with any glitter nail polish they last pretty well and Rockets Red Glare is no exception to this. Glitter polishes can hide a multitude of sins, what’s better is if you do chip your nails an additional coat/touch up sometimes is all you need to get away with the same polish a bit longer.

Wear time with this wasn’t bad in honesty but I was wearing it over another nail polish and only using it purely for its glitter value. For reference the polish I have used is Artdeco Art Couture in Courture Dark Queen 702 (Review here).

Personally I think Rockets Red Glare is the perfect nail varnish for Christmas. It will look great as a full nail polish or even as a partial like I have shown on my own nails. Being a clear base, all you are getting out of it is red glitter! I highly recommend this one for the party season if you can get it!

I purchased my Orly FX nail polish in Rockets Red Glare from NailPolish.co.uk. It cost £9.95.

Lots of Love,
