Nicole by OPI Let's Get Star-Ted

I was in my local pharmacy the other day and saw that they had some Nicole by OPI polishes on sale.  Now, never one to pass up on an OPI nail polish at the best of times, I purchased Let's Get Star-Ted.

This polish was really difficult to photograph in order to show you the true colours but I think the above photos are pretty representative of what it actually looks like.  It basically consists of large purple holographic stars as well as holographic micro-glitter suspended in a clear polish.
As with other nail polishes I have with large holographic/glitter pieces in them, application is a bit of a nuisance.  If you simply take the brush out of the bottle and apply to the nail as normal, all you will get on your nail is the micro-glitter. Otherwise you need to strategically ensure that the brush picks up some stars and place them on the nail, which also leaves you with a gloop of clear varnish to try and tidy up.  However, once applied it is very pretty, and I thought I would show you where I applied it generously on one of my nails:

To be honest, considering the price of these polishes (around €14.99), I won't be purchasing another. I think if you went into a craft shop and bought little holographic stars, it would be easier and much cheaper to apply them to your nail and cover with a top coat, rather than messing about with this!

Have any of you tried similar polishes? Let me know how you got on with them!
