Here's a sun picture - as with most red glitter suspended in a red base, it just looks gritty, but it definitely isn't. This polish did soak up my Seche Vite but it left my nails smooth.
Here it is in the shade - still lovely! I think the bottle is my favorite (and most accurate) of what this color looks like.
Indoors with flash it almost looks like a gold shimmer but I think that's just the bad lighting. I see a bit of bald spot on my middle finger but didn't notice it any other time.
You can purchase Superstar for $10 a bottle or by calling +1 (517)-214-7201. Their website appears to have had an overhaul since I last looked in October, so please do check it out.
