I can't rave enough about this product ~ especially my colours. It's a graceful, coral-nude-pink with a dainty bit of shimmer. It goes with any outfit, looks great on both fingernails and toenails, complements my fair, warm-neutral skintone, and wears beautifully year-round.
It goes on mostly opaque in one coat, so if I'm in a rush, one good swipe on my nails is good enough, topcoat or no. It still looks best with two coats, though.
It also dries relatively quickly, takes about a week to chip (with a good topcoat, that is), and, for the amount of time I've owned it and and the frequency in which I wear it, hasn't thickened up in the bottle on me yet.

I have to say that I really wanted to like this polish. I like the idea of the "Glimmer Gloss" Jelly Polish but this product has serious formula issues. The way the colour goes on it's hard to stay neat and it always ends up sloppy. I also found this polish to be slow drying.

Anyways, I should say that many people like this product but it just didn't work out for me.

I like this product. I know there are people who think Glimmer Gloss is too sheer, but that's how it's supposed to be. The name even gives it away:

Definition of "glimmer" = " to shine faintly or unsteadily", "to appear indistinctly with a faintly luminous quality"
Definition of "gloss" = "a surface luster or brightness" (Source: Merriam-Webster Online)

It's like lip gloss but for your nails--applying it over an existing nail colour gives you a nice shine and subtle shimmer, with just a hint of colour. Think of it as an add-on to change up the look of your regular polishes.

This is not just an ordinary nail polish.
What the buyers need to know before they buy this, is that this nail polish should not be used by itself.
You can't just put one coat (or multiple coats) of Revlon-Glimmer Gloss and complain that it's too sheer, because that's not how you're supposed to wear it!

You need to first put on a base coat to hydrate your nails, then your favourite colour coat, then you put the Revlon-Glimmer Gloss (either completely on top or just the tip of your fingernails, like french manicure), then you put a top coat on so that your work is complete and prevents it from chipping.

The Revlon-Glimmer Gloss gives a little kick and sparkle on your regular nail polishes. You can still see your base colour but with a nice shine and sparkle from the Glimmer Gloss. I usually wear the glimmer gloss on the tip of my fingernails to create my original colourful french manicure. Try it, it's fun!

I'm a huge fan of Shimmery Sparkley stuff, so I picked up a few of these.
I got all except the Banana one, and apricot one.
Though I think that they look pretty, they are VERY sheer as stated on the bottle.
They are jelly polishes, remaining sheer even with 3-5 coats (yes I went up to 5. Those babies took FOREVER to dry!) The only colour you can really wear alone with 3 coats, would probably only be the Cherry Fizz one, otherwise the others are better off used as a layer colour, to bring shimmer to a matte polish.

Revlon is the very big and an internationally recognised company, which produces many kind of cosmetics. I have used many products of this company, as they are simply great. The Revlon nail polish which I am going to talk about is simply the best for me, because the shades which are available her in Revlon are excellent which suits for all my dresses and all my moods. The shades are very good and the texture of the nail polish is very fine and looks very cool. The main advantage of using the Revlon nail polish is that this nail polish hardly takes a few seconds to get dried. It is very easy to apply this nail polish and we don’t even need to wait for a long time for it to by dried and we are ready for the party. My first choice for the nail plish is always Revlon.

This was absolutely horrible (if you couldn't tell by my ratings). Not only did it go on with difficulty it actually chipped within an hour of me applying it. However, for some reason it's really difficult to get off with polish remover. It's the devil, alright.

I really like this nail polish. Yes there are some sheer shades in the line, but there are more opaque shades too. I got Grapefruit Glimmer which is a sheer, sparkly pink. And I got Strawberry Sizzle which is a brighter shade of sparkly pink with a very subtle blueish cast to it. It's one of the more opaque shades - two coats and it looks exactly as it does in the bottle. They are both fabulously sparkly without being glittery. They go on very smoothly and evenly. The finish is among the glossiest I've ever seen from any nail polish; even with just one coat the finish is super glossy. I love glossy, "wet" looking nail polish so this is a huge plus for me. I can't wait to try out more shades of this nail polish - sheer or not they're super pretty shades and the quality is pretty good for the price.

If you pick up a shade that ends up being too sheer for your preferences you can always try it over top of a darker shade and see how you like it as sort of a topcoat to add a little shimmer/high gloss to other colors.

I hate this nailpolish!

I tried several colours today and I was really dissapointed by all of them. Looking at the bottle the colours seem amazing. Rich shades of purpe, yellow, apricot, blueberry..etc. When applied to the nail they come on reallllly transparent and lightly sparkled.

It barely showed up on my nails. Maybe this would work if someone had the time/patience to apply like 6-7 coats to get the full shade.
