Pop Rocks - Groupie

After all the Olympic posts I promised you some nail polish and here it is. :-)

I wasn't sure which polish to show today, I'm always drawn to my old Revlons and Sally Hansens, but I wanted to show a brand I haven't used before, so I've got a polish made by Blue Cross under the name Pop Rocks, the polish is called Groupie.

When I got this polish from ebay I was dissapointed as I thought it was going to be a black base with glitter, obviously the seller's photo wasn't the best, but luckily I love this polish more than I would've if it was a black base.
In the bottle Groupie is a dark murky looking green with two sizes of sexy holo glitter mixed in. On the nail though that murky green turns into a beautiful emerald green. It's a jelly base which lets the medium and small hex holographic glitter shine through.

I just love, love, love this colour, I'm a big fan of greens, and I don't have anything else like this in my collection, a nice green jelly with holo, what's not to love right, but I don't love that I had to use 4 thick coats to build the colour and it really didn't want to dry at all. I know next time I'll have to be really patient and do loads of thin coats and wait four hours before I go near anything with my nails, but I really would wear this again as I adore it.

If you like Groupie it's pretty easy to find as it pops up on ebay UK quite often. I'm not sure if there might be an actual black version of this, so check what you're getting before you bid. :-)

That's it for today, let me know if you have any other Pop Rocks polishes, I'd love to know what you think of their other colours.

Cheerio for now,

Heather. :-)


  1. Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. Groupie (along with Hard Candy Icky Eggnog) actually inspired my Liquid Leprechaun shade!

    1. It's lovely isn't it, I haven't seen Hard Candy Icky Eggnog so I'll have to check that out, and wouldn't you know it, Liquid Leprechaun is on my wish list. :-)

  2. I LOVE this one and it's sitting in my untrieds!
