Stargazer bottle is just ugly, I know. It's supposed to be chrome ... but the paint starts to chip so fast. Mirror Magic includes Step 1 and Step 2.
SIZE: Stargazer 14 mL, Maybelline 2 x 7.5 mL
APPLICATION: I find it very hard to apply Stargazer Chrome nail polish over my usual base coat (Nailtek Foundation). Because of that, it has to be applied directly to the nail which isn't good if you have ridges. Maybelline has better brush than Stargazer and requires a two step manicure. Before coloring your nail with Step 2, you have to apply Step 1 - sheer white-ish liquid that evens your nail surface. This makes a good base for color.
AVAILABILITY: Stargazer can be found on Ebay or in Stargazer online store. It's much harder (especially for European girls) to find Maybelline Mirror Magic. I haven't seen it in stores but sometimes it can be found on Ebay. You just have to be lucky to find it.
FINISH: They are pretty similar, but Maybelline is maybe more chrome-y than Stargazer. Just a little bit more.
CONCLUSION: You get more for your money if you purchase Stargazer (size wise) and it's also easier to find. Maybelline is easier to apply, but both dry really quickly and finish is very similar. I can't tell you which one lasts longer. I guess none of them ... Chrome nail polish chips easily.
What do you think about this kind of nail polish (chrome)? Do you own one? Do you like it?
