Stargazer Nail Polish
Advantages: Unique fun polishes in wide variety of colours.
Disadvantages: Bottles that are not clear in colour
Star Gazer is a cosmetics brand I have been buying products from since I was a teenager, it goes without saying then that I am a massive fan of their make up and especially their nail Polishes.
The company began as a stall in London in the late 70's, it was influenced by the punk fashion and attitude of the era. In the 80's they began branching out and their products are now widely available both on the high street and online. The company make all their products themselves and our constantly adding to their range. They produce a wide variety of cosmetics including Nail Polish, Blushers, Eye Shadows and Mascara. What sets Star Gazer apart from competitors is the unique style of their make up which is bright, colourful and with a alternative edge.
None of their products have been tested on animals.
Star Gazer produce many different nail polishes, including gloss, crackle, chrome, UV reactive and ultra cover. The last three are by far my favourite.
The range of Chrome Polishes are amazing. They come in a wide variety of colours including Silver, Gold, Red and Blue. My favorite is the Silver, once applied to the nail it leaves a metallic shiny finish which is durable and lasts a few days before chipping. I have found that on occasion this polish does leave some streaks and a second coat is sometimes needed, but it is easy to apply and dries quickly. The chrome polishes come in a rounded shape bottle, the bottle is not clear and therefore the actual polish is not visable. The bottle is coloured, so the silver nail polish bottle is bright shiny metallic silver in colour. Although this makes the bottle look quiet cook and unique, I have also found it to be quite annoying as it is difficult to gage how much varnish is left inside. The top is black with the brand name written in silver, this screws off to reveal the applicator brush.
The UV reactive polish comes in a standard nail polish bottle. The bottle base is of a rounded shape with the brand name written in silver on the front. Both the bottle and product inside are clear. The top is black with "UV" written vertically, this screws of to reveal the applicator brush. This polish is designed to be painted over nail polish which has already been applied to the nails, much like a clear top coat. However, once applied this actually glows when under a black light. Of couse this polish is ment for nights out and clubbing and I must admit its been a while since I last applied it. However, i did love wearing this polish and would often get people asking where I had bought it. It was easy to apply and fairly long wearing.
The Ultra cover range have a clear circular bottle and the nail polish is clearly visible through. The bottle has the brand name on the front and a plain black top which again screws off to reveal the applicator. There is a massive range of colours to choose from from regular colours like red and black to bright unique colours like yellow and orange. I love black nails and Star Gazers black polish has to be my favorite. It is easy to apply and only takes one coat (some of the lighter shades may take a few more) I have always found it to be long lasting and takes a couple of days before it begins to chip.
I would highly recommend trying the Star Gazer range of nail polish as not only are they of a high quality but they are also fun, vibrant and unique. I currently buy these from a little alternative shop not far from where I live but they are widely available on the high street and I have purchased them in New Look a few times. Of course they can also be bought online from Amazon. Prices vary but tend to be around £2.50-£3.00.
Summary: Fun, unique Polishes in a variety of styles and colours!
