We've all been there, sorely disappointed by a beautiful nail polish in the bottle, that looks entirely lackluster on the nail. This is a sad situation, and a common one. This the story of Essie Sparkle on Top.
Sparkle On Top looked like some China Glaze Snow Gobe-esque icy iridescent rainbow fantasy in the bottle, but it's all just a bottle of sorry and sad lies.
Sparkle on Top over Essie No More Film
Color: Lies. Lies. Lies. This isn't some strong iridescent pretty multi-dimensional flakie situation. No, this is a sorry and sad flakie situation. These flakies/flakes have a faint blue-green shift, but mainly just look completely transparent on the nail. This looks so much better in the bottle.
Formula: The formula is fine. The flakes spread evenly and easily on the nail.
Price: I paid $8.50 for this CVS.
Overall: This is not worth your money. There are much better iridescent glitters and flakies out there that you will be happier with. I recommend China Glaze Snow Globe, China Glaze Make A Spectacle, China Glaze Luxe and Lush, or Essie Shine of the Times. Sparkle on Top is a Whompasaurus Rex.
My Rating: 1.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
