China Glaze Glitter in Stellar

Above & Below: China Glaze Stellar is a dazzling, sparkly polish with a beige or khaki base. The pictures don't do it justice because I couldn't capture the silver glitter that really dresses up this shade.

Stellar is one of the new glitters in the Glitters, Shimmers & Cremes collection from China Glaze. This one has the smaller micro glitter, as opposed to the larger pieces of glitter found in many of the other polishes in this unusually large collection. Not that I'm complaining about the size of the collection, but I honestly don't recall any company coming out with such a massive amount of polishes in one collection before. On to the description of Stellar...this is a khaki shade packed with silver glitter that covered very nicely in 2 coats. I happened to have a bottle of Orly's Country Club Khaki on my desk when I was applying Stellar and it is a very similar base shade. Add in 50 million pieces of silver micro glitter and you get a beautiful, sparkly shade that is a winning combination. If you want a clean and simple look with a little bling, this is the perfect shade.

  15. Nicole~I love the glitters with the bigger pieces, but these more subtle ones are just as pretty!

    Krisprimps~that is an excellent description you gave and I totally agree.

    Lucy~the coverage was fantastic. Some of the other glitters are requiring me to use 3 coats, but not this one.

    AllYouDesire~agree, very wearable. Not too colorful, but so sparkly and pretty.

    Euridice~this is a great polish to have, it's toned down yet still dressy.

    The Pretty Brown Girl~actually with all of the sparkle, I think it would look very nice and less clay-like. I know what you mean though.

    Eliza~you summed it up very well!

    Helen~ha-ha, when I applied the first stroke I thought "Helen would love this!" and I guess I was right :)

    Pinkginger~it really is a nice shade. Quite versatile, in my opinion.

    MM~lots of you ladies seem to love this one :)

    Kae~thank you, I'm really happy with it.
