BA Star Glue Shadow Base and Holo Silver Glitter Review & Nail Art

Last week ago BA Star was generous enough to send me some samples to review, so I wanted to share them with you all today! BA Star specializes in dance/cheer makeup, and provided me with their Holo Silver Glitter and Glue Shadow Base to try out.

I know this is a blurry pic.. but ooooh just look at that holo sparkily goodness!

I tested out the glue and glitter on my hand - the glitter sticks really well to the glue! After about an hour of running errands I didn't notice any of the design rubbing off.

I also tried doing some nail art with the holo glitter as an accent nail. I used a silver polish and while it was wet dipped my nail into the pot and rolled it around. I gently patted the glitter into place and tapped my finger to shake off the excess, then topped it with a thick coat of topcoat. The topcoat took away from the ultra-holo effect, but it still sparkled in the sunlight!

Overall I really liked the glitter and glue from BA Star. The only issue is that I find loose glitters to be insanely messy – once you touch it it’s like honey and just seems to get stuck everywhere! I can see how these products would be great for cheerleaders/dancers though because oh my goodness – they are so sparkily! For the rest of us, I think their glitters would be a ton of fun for special occaisions or a night out, and it worked really well for doing nail art.

If you’re interested in buying BA Star’s products, they’ve offered my readers a code for 50% off if you use the code “BBGLITZ” at their website http://bastar.com
