Rimmel Magic Stardust

The nail community has been spoiled with glitter bombs lately from indies. We know a fantastic, blingtastic, and heavy packed glitter are possible. I think sometimes this leaves us disappointed when we encounter a mainstream or drugstore brand who puts out less than stellar glitter, that maybe sparse and less dense. I thought this would be the case with Rimmel Magic Stardust because it's sparse, but I'm not disappointed.

Rimmel Magic Stardust over Zoya Carey
 Magic Stardust is a mix of blue hex glitters and micro silver and pink holo glitters in a clear base.

Color: I love this soft glitter mix. The blue in this polish definitely pops, but I find it blends nicely with the softer glitters.

Formula: This formula was smooth and easy to apply, but this is very sparse. I used 3 coats above. I actually like my finished look very much, but I wish I could of achieved this in 1-2 coats instead of 3.

Price: I believe this was $1.69 at Walgreens. There were a handful of other polishes in this display. This is a steal price nail polish.

Overall: I really love this soft glitter. I actually love it the way it is, not being a glitter bomb. That being said, I wish it didn't require that many coats, just to get this result. The price on this is great. I don't recall the last time I paid under $2.00 retail on a nail polish, unless something was on sale or at Dollar Tree!

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Tuesday!


  1. What a pretty glitter! I love soft ones like this sometimes too :)

  2. This is really pretty! I love how it sparkles.

  3. Reminds me of NYC Starry Silver Glitter

  4. I think I have this but haven't worn it in forever...gorgeous glitter.

  5. lol that is what I was going to say, as I have that one as well. I feel like it was right around the price point of this Rimmel, but that it gives a little more coverage as I think it had a bit more glitter than this in only 2 coats. So they are good alternatives to each other.
