Rockstar Nails Review & Feb BB5 Unboxing

Hello my dear friends! Happy Tuesday to you. ♥ Today I am excited to share a review on Rockstar Nails' Nail Polish and Caviar beads! "Caviar" nails have been all the rage lately in the nail and beauty community! Ive heard good and bad things... And I was curious as well with just how well those beads would hold up on a mani. Luckily, I received this FULL size Polish & Sprinkles from Rockstar Nails in my Beauty Box 5 package this month! Keep reading to see my thoughts on this product, and just how well they have held up so far.

If you dont already know, Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month.
Cost: $12 / month, $30 / Quarterly, $99 / annually
 Here is a peek at my mani on the first day I did it:

I will start with the Nail Polish first.... First off let me tell you, the smell is also very strong! Of course nail polish is already sort of a strong unpleasant smell to most. But I typically dont mind it... This polish however was strong even for me! It sort of smelled like spray paint or plastic pool toys.

This polish also has a super thick formula, which I assume is to really help hold the sprinkles. I kind of liked that it is thick, I feel that it held up against chipping because of its thick formula. The downside is that because its so thick it takes a LONG time to dry. So even after an 30-45 minutes my nails were still dentable, and did in fact dent. :( Also, when the polish does dry it sort of dries to a plastic or vinyl like looking finish. And even though it had a plastic like look to it, it wasnt like other polishes that are plastic-like and peel off real easy like. This held real strong.
Now, as for the sprinkles or caviar beads... I was SHOCKED at how well they stayed. I had a couple friends say they tried this caviar nail look (another brand) and their beads fell off after a day. :( So I was expecting the same for these. In the keek video below you can see my Mani after 3 days, having endured hair washing, dish washing, and every day wear and tear... 

To my surprise the beads and even the polish held up amazingly! Again I have a feeling the thick formula of the polish really helps to grip and hold those beads VERY well. ALSO I did a clear top coat of polish over the beads. I did not add the top coat over the polish, because like I said it was very thick and I didn't want to add more polish over it till it dried all the way.... Which ended up being so long that I didn't even add a top coat to it at all. Again, the polish still held up very well without it, so it was really needed. 

Over all I think Roackstar Nails is amazing quality.... And am extremely pleased with the long lasting results of my mani! So much so, in fact that I actually ordered MORE for myself, and a few extra for some friends! ♥ Now if you are curious what else came in my February Beauty Box 5 package, you can watch my unboxing video:

Over all I thought that this Feb BB5 package was great!
