This is a combined haul since they were all sold in different stores. The first two on the left, I purchased from Urban Outfitters. The two in the middle are from Ricky's and the last two I purchased from Icing in Florida. As you can see, I have a deep love (or obsession) for GLITTER...
First let's start with NYX Girls in Dynamic Glitter. It consists of small silver and holographic hex glitter in a sheer pink base. At fist I thought I wasn't going to like it since the base was so sheer, but it changed my mind. This is more of a layering polish, however if you wear it on it's own, it has a lovely delicate feel to it. I was wearing two coats in the pic above. I feel if I layered this polish on top of a baby pink, it would look like a dupe for Revlon's Starry Pink.

Here is Red Planet by the Urban Outfitters private brand. I love the bottle shape, reminds me of an ice cube. This color did give me some problems to photograph. I don't under stand why it's called Red Planet when it's a PINK color. A pretty, glass fleck pink but PINK nonetheless... It went on smoothly in 2 coats, good formula.
In the bottle it has a slight orange duochrome around the edges. However this is totally lost on the nails. It is super glowy, I can't wait to wear this as a pedicure!

Another polish from the Me Amour collection is Amour De Ma Vie, shown above. At first glance, it seems to be a dupe for Butter London's The Black Knight, but there are a few differences. The Black Knight has more vibrant glitter (teal, hot pink, red), whereas Amour De Ma Vie has mainly silver, light blue and red glitter. It was totally opaque in 2 coats, which is great. I would definitely recommend using a top coat since it dries gritty. I loved how chockful of glitter this way, no fishing over here!
When I first saw The Golden Age of Glitter, I just thought it was golden green glitter in a black base. I was totally wrong, its gold and black glitter in a clear base. I consider it to be a happy mistake because I think it hold more layering possibilities than if the base was pigmented.
For swatching purposes, I only used two coats, it would benefit from a third. While you can use a black base, I wouldn't because all the black glitter would be lost. I definitely want to try this over a gold polish.
Last but not least, I've got Icing's After Party to show you. This may be my favorite polish of all six. It's a clear base full of irregular multi-colored glitter. This one is definitely made for layering, I used 2 coats in the photo below and it's nowhere near opaque.
All in all, I was super happy with all my purchases, especially After Party and Je T'Aime. Both Je T'Aime and Amour De Ma Vie are rather similar to Butter London's The Black Knight and Tart With a Heart, but with a much lower price tag ($5.99 each) and great formulas. I purchased these in store but they are also sold online. The other four polishes were also purchased in store but I wasn't able to find them online, so good like finding them! NYX Girls Dynamic Glitter can be found at online at Cherry Culture if you can't find it at Urban Outfitters.
