Spark-tacular! Top Coat

Spark-tacular! Top Coat from Sephora by OPI is described as a "glittery finishing touch that acts like jewelry for your nails". I agree, with that! You can use it as a finishing touch but I use it on it's own. It has small chunks of rainbow glitters, and big silver glitters, along with some bigger pieces of green, blue, pink, and yellow. I feel like it's a Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday polish alternative. I absolutely love the way this polish looks. It's so unique, glittery, sparkly, fun, and girly! It retails for $9.50 at Sephora. 

Drawbacks: It chips like NO OTHER :( It's somewhat high maintenace. I usually have to touch up certain parts that have just come clean off. As in, big chunks. It sucks. I find it ridiculous that on the site it claims to be chip-resistant. It is such a blatant, blaring lie.

It gets clumpy quick :( The top of my bottle looks yucky now, and I felt that a couple weeks ago this polish applied so much more smoothly to my nails. Now it is clumpy and harder to get a good consistency. It's certainly more time-consuming and frustrating now. I still manage to produce a good result though.

I probably shouldn't repurchase this polish, but it's so beautiful that I'm hooked. If you try it you will be too!

Note: Ignore my horrendously short, meh nails. That's just how I have them or else I bite them! 
Also: I applied this semi-opaque because I like the clear look. However with another coat it is much more silvery, and very jewelry-like. I like both looks :) Picture at the end with the more opaque application.
