Urban Decay Rollergirl Nail Kit

Urban Decay Rollergirl Nail Kit ($28.00 for 6 x 0.17 fl. oz.) features six miniature-sized nail polishes. It includes these shades: Fame (champagne shimmer), Love Train (opalescent shimmer), Miss T (bright orchid fuchsia), Superfreak (gold shimmer base with gold micro-glitter), Woodstock (hot pink), and Xanadu (sheer purple base with purple glitter). Each polish is 0.17 fl. oz, so the total amount of polish in the kit is the equivalent of 1.02 fl. oz, or about two full-sized nail polishes.  I used Zoya’s Anchor & Armor as my base/top coats unless otherwise specified.

  • Fame is a soft champagne with subtle pink undertones and white shimmer. I used three coats and still had a hint of visible nail line. China Glaze Hybrid is a bit darker and more opaque but similar.
  • Superfreak is a tarnished gold with micro-glitter and a metallic finish. It dries to a matte metallic finish (I didn’t use a top coat in the photos, to show you the natural finish). It is very similar to Dior Timeless Gold–maybe a smidgen lighter but they’re quite close. This shade was nicely pigmented so I only needed two coats.
  • Xanadu is a fuchsia-tinted jelly base with violet and fuchsia glitter. I used three coats, and it still had a sheerness in the base color, but it was expected based on the description (it is not meant to be opaque).  It’s like a red-toned version of Illamasqua Boo.
  • Miss T is a vibrant fuchsia magenta with subtle fuchsia micro-shimmer strewn through the base.  Essie’s Bermuda Shorts was the closest I could think of, but it is pinker (not as magenta).
  • Woodstock is a neon hot pink, and it dries to a matte finish–almost like patent leather. I used two coats–the flash photo is taken without a top coat to show the finish.  Zoya’s Gilda is similar in color but not in finish.  China Glaze Rich & Famous also seems similar but perhaps a bit darker.
  • Love Train is a sheer, muted white with subtle opal iridescence and micro-shimmer. Think Chanel Pearl Drop but cool-toned.

my thoughts on the formula: The formula on these was really easy to work with–it applied smoothly, evenly, and nothing took too long to dry. Both Xanadu and Love Train are sheerer shades but the descriptions say exactly that–can’t fault them there–while Superfreak, Miss T, and Woodstock have excellent color pay off.

I love the concept of miniature-sized nail polishes, because you get to try a variety of shades without committing to the price tag of full bottles.  However, as someone with longer fingers and bigger hands, it can take some getting used to holding the small-sized caps, even though the brush applicator is full-sized (thankfully!).

A-
It seems like this year is bringing out quite a few cool-toned collections, and the new Rollergirl Nail Kit from Urban Decay definitely leans cool, but what I like about it is the finishes and vibrancies make them easy to wear against warmer skin tones, too.

  1. Vvn

    I like the one from last year better… and you get a free case with it too! hahahha
    I feel like there’s nothing much special here =/

    Thanks for swatches =D

  2. Holy Crow these look fantastic! Like little sweeties in a box. Me want!

  3. Mel

    Nice! I love these little polish sets UD comes up with. But I’m not sure if I can justify the price tag for Xanadu and Miss T. Here in Singapore it costs SGD$45 per set…this is the same reason why I skipped last years Summer of Love nail kit. Sigh.

  4. Gosh!! Want this, love all the colors for the price too!! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Ani_BEE

    I’m not a fan o this years colours compared to last year but it’s nice to see they perfected the formula. ^_^

  6. Andrea

    They do look very nice, for wat i have seen in your site Urban Decay seems to be a great brand

  7. I’m loving these. Thanks for the review, Christine!

  8. maryelle

    wow xanadu is a winner! i wish i could buy that color alone.

  9. Fiona

    Wow! I was blown away by how pretttty Woodstock and Superfreak are, might have to look into getting this kit :D Christine, are these mini’s permanent? And do they have bigger size versions that are permanent?

    • I’m still waiting to hear if/what is limited edition from their summer launches but I would expect that this is limited since the colors are “seasonal” picks. Just minis!

  10. Julchen

    I wanna have Woodstock as a lip colour!!

  11. $28 for tiny little bottles, sheer application, and easily duped colors? PASS. Xanadu is the only interesting one, and how many manis can you get out of .17oz? Two?

    It’s so disappointing. Urban Decay used to have such AWESOME polishes. At least the revamped Hard Candy line is TRYING.

    • A full-sized bottle is usually around 0.4 to 0.5 fl. oz. – this is 1/3 to 1/2 of that, so I think you can get quite a few more than two out of it :) I think I noted it in the review, too, the two that were sheer but were *supposed* to be sheer – you can’t get mad that they’re exactly as described.

  12. leesie

    Xanadu and Woodstock are awesomely gorgeous.
    I haven’t purchased any of their nail kits, but I think I’m going to start adding them to my collection. I hope they have their spring F&F sale so I can snag the old ones and this one together.

  13. Lena

    love Woodstock and superfreak!

  14. I’m in love with Miss T! What’s your favorite shade?

  15. What I would do for full-sized Urban Decay nail polishes… I actually ran out of colors from the last set I got, and I never use up a whole bottle of nail polish!
    I really like these, especially the gold and pink, so obviously this is a must-have for me.

  16. Hilary♥

    I don’t like every shade but most of them are really pretty.

  17. Amanda

    Cool. I just got another 10% off email from Sephora for renewing my VIB status, and I want to wait until they have all the new UD summer stuff to place my order..including these polishes!

  18. Natalie

    This is so random probably but you have gorgeous nails, Christine! I want every polish you review haha!

  19. I know what you mean about big hands! I have giant hands… they are the same size as my boyfriend’s and he is 6’1 and I’m only 5’7. I have huge sausage fingers too, haha.

    About these colors… I don’t know. They just don’t really seem all that “cool” or unique to me. I’m glad that UD is getting back into nail polish, but it is still only a shadow of their former glory. I would probably only buy this if it went on sale like the other nail polish minis.

    • xMissxAndristx

      haha my boyfriend is 6′ and i’m 5’6 and we have the same size hands too! but he says he has tiny lady hands. i think he has normal hands and i have giant man hands. and my fingers are stupid fat. lol

  20. Rachelle

    Ooh I like! <3

  21. Alyssa

    Much better then I thought! Thanks!

  22. Kat

    Ooooooh I like this! I may actually pick this p next time I’m at Sephora.

  23. Alannah

    I find these newest incarnations of UD polishes so boring. The old (full-sized) polishes they used to sell some years ago were just so much more interesting and unique. I haven’t been tempted to buy one set of these newer polishes yet (and that’s coming from a polish addict)! So disappointing!

  24. Elizabeth

    Thanks for the swatches, Christine! :) I have been looking forward to them. I think I am most excited about Fame and Xanadu. I thought Fame would be very similar to Love Light from last year, but now I can see that this is not the case. I think Fame + Love Train might make a really cool french manicure!

    I still wish there were 7 polishes in this set, though… :(

  25. Chiara

    I love Miss T!! Do you know of any dupe for it? I can’t think of any… It’s really the only colour I would want from this set. LOVE the subtle shimmer in this one.

  26. I actually like these on the nail more than in the bottle… Uh oh, I thought this was something I could skip, but maybe not! Thanks so much for reviewing it, otherwise I may have missed out!

  27. I’ll buy it & love it, but only 6? The other UD nail kits were the same price but had 7 mini bottles.
    But whatever.

  28. Pame

    Amazing colors i could love to have superfreak and woodstock now i need to find a dupe cause urban decay is not sold here in chile

  29. Sydney

    I love Woodstock…

  30. Pink

    These colors are lovely. I may have to buy those.

  31. Rainbow

    WOOHOO!!!!! More UD nail polishes!!!!!!! Not happy they are repromoting Woodstock though..I’ve not even worn the one I already have from last year. Also I really wish they would make full sized polishes again!!!!! I do love these sets but they are kind of overpriced (luckily i’ve been able to find the last two sets for under $20..hopefully the same will happen with this one)

  32. I luv the Woodstock color…its simply beautiful

  33. Neela

    woodstock is the most amazing pink colour on me. i’ve never found an exact match. i’ll buy this just for another woodstock. yeah i’m that bad.

  34. Violet

    These are beautiful, but the neon pink and gold aren’t to my taste. But I love Fame and Love Train.

  35. Elena Torres

    Hi Christine:

    Is Woodstock the same shade from last year’s nail kit. Thanks!

  36. I’m disappointed :(
    I own the last two nail kits and really liked the variety. Also the last two had 7 polishes each, almost like day of the week. Woodstock was in last summers kit.
    None of the new colors are really wowing me. Hopefully there will be a more exciting fall nail kit!!

  37. Ooooh I want ALL of these!! Wishliiist!!

  38. Megen

    Love love!! Wish these would be on hautelook tomorrow xD

    Off topic, quick question…did you get rid  of the UD and MAC mobile versions of these pages? I used to be redirected right to them. The MUFE and Illamasqua ones still work for me, and all 4 are bookmarked so idk what’s wrong 

  39. Heather

    OMG I love it! But I just found out I’m pregnant so no nail painting for awhile *cries*

  40. i want these, great colours but nowhere sells urban decay products in turkey :((

  41. Jae

    Oooh, I like ‘em all. I’m sure I have similiar colors in my stash, but i’m not going to go through all of them. Plus, I like the packaging so I’mma pick one up! =)

  42. Kayla Rachelle

    Xanadu looks like a purple version of Last Friday Night from the OPI Katy Perry Collection! I can’t wait to get these. (:

  43. Ugh, why are they re-releasing Woodstock?

  44. Megan

    Oooh, pretty! I’m definitely going to have to get these. My nail lady is always laughing at me because I bring in the craziest and brightest colors and I’m constantly saying more glitter. This set satisfies my need for bright and my ados (attention deficit…oooh shiny).

  45. Is Woodstock similar to Illamasqua Collide?

  46. Sarah

    Oooh I love Xanadu!

  47. Kate Georgia

    Not a fan of Xanadu, but the rest I can’t wait to get my paws on!

  48. Daniella

    Nothing that unique and I hate brush stroke marks!

  49. Cathy

    I need this in my life.

  50. Cathy

    Do you know of any dupes for Fame? that color is amazing (apart from the brushstrokes :\)

  51. Emma

    Christine,
    Love your site.. but your pops are so annoying.. and they won’t stop..

    • We don’t have pop-up advertising – if you have any concerns, please use the contact form so you can speak with us directly and we can try to troubleshoot the issue, because we do not use pop-up advertising.

  52. Wow these polishes are so vibrant and perfect for summer. Def. my cup of tea!!!

  53. Irina

    I really like Fame and Love Train. Do they have a very shiny finish like the Rescue Beauty ones?

  54. Yianna

    Im in love with woodstock

  55. Yianna

    are these available individually?

  56. Britt

    Are there your natural nails Christine? They are so beautiful! If so, what do you use to keep them at such a nice length?
