I used Rimmel London's Stronger Stay Hard strengthening base coat, and then one coat of the dark purple creme polish.
The applicator brush is a slim shape and easy to use. The one coat dried fairly quickly and went on smoothly.
I then applied the glitter flake part which unfortunately was difficult to get a good amount of glitter in the one coat! I was also a bit dubious about how long this would take to dry as it was much stickier than the plain colour was.
After it dried, I applied another coat to get more glitter onto my nails. I am pleased with the final result but I don't feel that it is as vibrant as I'd have hoped.
I ADORE the galaxy print themes and galaxy print inspired products and do feel a tiny bit let down. If there was a better amount of glitter in the polish and a less gungy and sticky outcome I would probably purchase another polish from this range.
As it is, I would recommend it for the gorgeous colours and sparkle, but it could definitely be improved!
