The key to using these is not to apply layer after layer to achieve an opaque effect. You should either apply one or two coats over another solid polish...or, if you want to wear the glitter on its own, dab it on thickly, rather than swiping on thin coats as you would a regular polish. If you use the dabbing method, even one coat is enough. Wait for it to dry, then top with a topcoat like Seche Vite.

The polish is pretty and looks great after applying multiple coats. However, it chips very easily and is VERY difficult to remove. I will not buy this product again.

Love this color! It works fine on its own, although the pink is a little too light; even if you put two coats. It's easy to take off as well, which makes this polish amazing, since there's little confetti sparkles.

This is a beautiful color. It takes a few coats to get the full effect but so pretty. Great for summer or a warm vacation spot.

The only D.L. nail polish I owned was the Happy Birthday. Was easily one of my top five and I own about 50 bottles of nail polish, it was very beautiful on my tile floor when I dropped it, the bottle shattered and it flew everywhere. I will definitely buy it again. Just one thing: if you have a Zappos VIP account they cannot send nail polish overnight because of it's combustible nature it must be ground shipped. It took about 5 days for me to get it but it was worth the wait for something that packed such I mesmerizing sparkle.

Deborah Lippman polish is my absolute favorite and hard to find! Zappos is my Deborah Lippman destination because they make shopping too easy! So far as ruby red slippers polish I am in love! It is festive and screams holiday! For anyone new to Deborah Lippman, the polish does not travel from the brush, and the color is highly pigmented. I have 10 other colors!

Brands I'd also recommend: none compare

I got Lady Sings The Blues... and it defiantly looks like it does here. The only thing is that the sparkles were stuck to the side of mine so when I applied it, there wasn't many sparkles on my nails. I tried scraping them off with the brush and shaking the bottle, but they just wont come off the sides. But overall, I like the color and it applied well. And yes it was a bit hard to get off.. but I figure that's good? Id rather have it stay on then come off.

It's a little difficult to work with, but I like to use it for just a feature nail or for some extra sparkle on top of another solid color.

I am usually not a big fan of glitter and sparkle on my nails but lately I cannot get enough of it. When I was trying to find one color, so hard to choose I could not decide. I remember my best friend telling me about this pink color that she has never seen before. She told me that it was so different that if I was going to spend this type of money on nail polish that this should be it! So I listened to her and I decided to treat myself and order the "Candy Shop." I have not used it yet, but I swatch a little nail polish on my white paper and it look so amazing. I will be using this one next. I think that it totally worth the money since, I agree with her it is like nothing I had seen before.

Absolutely love Mermaid's Dream! I bought it after seeing it in a magazine. You can do 1 coat and it will cover smoothly. Con is that it isn't easy to apply. I had to use a combo of dabbing and brushing.

This is a gorgeous color. It has a soft minty-green metallic base with small silver flecks and larger dark blue flecks. Two coats give it a full, lovely finish. Very girlie for a non-traditional color.

Amazing polish! I do my own gelish gel nails. Put on the gel base up to the top coat to finish. Then I polish the DL sprinkles (very silvery with an ever so slight tinge of blue). On the tips to the middle of my nail bed like a french style. The glitter chunks are easy to use because they load on the brush really consistently and go on exactly where you want them to. Once that is good and dry, I put on another gel top coat and under the light I go. This mani lasted 3 weeks through Christmas on the beach in HI. It is worth every penny! I have a feeling this is not a bottle that will go to my polish collection and sit there for 10 years.

Brands I'd also recommend: OPI Divine Swine is the magenta version of this one. It is also fabulous and easy to control for glitter placement.

I absolutely love Some Enchanted Evening! It looks awesome by itself or over different base colors! I love that the glitter is different, fun sizes to give a kind of optical illusion. It stays on great too! I am ordering Ruby Red Slippers, Bad Romance and Today Was a Fairy Tale!

Love Deborah Lippmann polish. The Glitter is beautiful. I have lots of compliments. You can wear it alone or put gold or silver base and then the glitter polish. One hint...you have to kind of dab it on instead of long strokes like regular polish. Very easy to do.

Brands I'd also recommend: All the glitters are wonderful. Lots great colors!

It's just "OK." I usually like DL polishes. I've tried Across the Universe, Bad Romance, and Some Enchanted Evening, and was very happy with them. For some reason, though, this one falls short of its promises. (I have seen the real Ruby Red Slippers IN PERSON and this looks nothing like them!) I think it mainly has to do with the sheer black base. I put it on top of a ridge filler and it was really streaky, large areas were literally see through. Now, I know this happens with glitter polishes, but this was a lot more than usual. When all was said and done, it was a real let down. The "black" base should be ruby. Plain and simple. It can be a sheer ruby, it can be a dark ruby, but making it black, IMO, was a big mistake. It takes away from the glitter... and what potentially could be a great polish. It's nowhere near that yet. Time to revamp the formula, Deb...

The rainbow glitter, "happy birthday," is like glue. I wore it for a week in Costa Rica with nary a chip. However, this makes it near impossible to get off. Short of soaking your nails in acetone, you will be scraping it off with a dull blade. I did find putting a cotton balls soaked in acetone on my nail, then wrapping it in tin foil, waiting 5 minutes, and then wiping off the polish helped. I don't like exposing my skin to acetone for that long. I ended up giving the polish away. It's super pretty, especially with another metallic color underneath, like Chanel's Peridot, but ultimately wasn't worth the hassle.

This polish is beautiful! The glitter is large and makes a real statement. I used a silver basecoat underneath, so I needed less coats. I also purchased Across the Universe and have received many compliments. These products were well worth the money.

I was hesitant to buy this polish because it's so much more expensive than the polishes I usually purchase, but I took the plunge, and I'm so glad I did. The glitter polishes are BEAUTIFUL and add a really nice pop to other lacquers. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the glitter and its staying power. Worth the splurge!

Across the Universe = unique beauty. I always get compliments on it from random people. It's gorgeous! I've never spent so much on a nail polish...never spent more than around 8 bucks on an OPI nail polish. I saw it and knew I had to have it though. It arrived quickly too. It's very long lasting, and began to chip after about a week. No biggie, I'm painting them again tonight! Yay.

Expensive for nail polish, but worth the price in terms of uniqueness and quality. Happy Birthday is super cute and looks good on its own or over a color. I especially liked it over a midnight blue I already had. As previous reviewers said, best to dab it on if you want a dense uniformly glittered look. Also really cute to just put glitter details here and there on a painted base if you're into asymmetry, which I happen to be. My manicure lasted forever with a base and top coat. Takes a while to get it off, but I'm not complaining, since it means days and days of chip-free, sparkly awesomeness. Definitely a favorite.

The best nail polish ever, I've been wearing this on my toes for 3 weeks now and it still look like I just apply it. I bought Across Universe, Happy birthday and several others. If you buy the sparkle one and apply it on any regular nail polish, it will last just like DL regular colors. Love it. Great buy.
