Before you scroll through all the pictures I would like to preface this post by saying that this is a collection of (mostly) glitter polishes. These would need to be layered over a polish to truly get the entire effect but I am showing exactly what you get when you brush on the polish/glitter.

 This collection includes six polishes:

Take the Stage-- Gold glitter with silver/iridescent flakes
Backstage Pass-- Silver and purple hex glitter (large)
Wish Upon a Rock-Star-- Multicolored glitter with large purple hex's
It's a Hit-- Purple hex glitter (large)
Fame & Fortune-- Red jelly base with iridescent flakes
Platinum Record--Silver glitter

Wish Upon a Rock-Star, Backstage Pass, Take the Stage
