Sally Hansen Gem Crush - Lady Luck

Hey hey! I have a quick polish swatch to show you!

I bought this polish last week because I got my Priceline "payback" reward voucher a week or two ago. :) It wasn't a lot, but it made my decision to buy this polish easier. ;)
I think this was probably one of the first 20 polishes to go onto my nail polish wishlist ever! I wanted it when I first started collecting in February, which I think was around the time this line was released here. But I never owned it til now. I think that's because to me, they're a little expensive (compared to the US prices. But that really doesn't surprise me at all anymore, everything here is double, sometimes triple the price of US cosmetics). And that's why having my little Priceline reward made me feel better about buying it.

This is Sally Hansen's Lady Luck from the Gem Crush line. I eventually want to own all/most of the Gem Crush polishes. I'm crazy about glitter and lately I've been really liking small glitters like this, and usually I only like chunky glitter. 
Lady Luck is teeny tiny magenta glitters, and larger (still small though) silver holographic glitters in a clear base.

From other swatches and reviews I've seen, I expected this to be more opaque. But I actually needed 3-4 coats to get it opaque. And as you can see, it still isn't even fully opaque. :(
I think it would work better if the base was thicker. Maybe I'll leave the bottle open for 15 minutes so it can thicken up a bit, lol.
But sheer-ness aside, this is totally gorgeous and so sparkly! Love.

I bought mine at Priceline as I said, but I've also seen them in Target, Kmart, and a couple at Big W. Woolworths also had a few I believe. They cost $9.95 but Sally Hansen is on sale in the shops I mentioned pretty often so I'd suggest waiting until SH is on sale if you want these. :)
