Today's challenge is, "Inspired by the night sky." Seeing how I just scored a bottle of the new Starry, Starry Night on clearance, I thought I'd use it as the base of this nailart!
I was, I admit, pretty excited to hear that Essie was re-releasing this polish. I missed out on the original release, and I didn't want to pay resale prices. I almost ordered it when it first came out.. but then the reviews started coming in: It's thick. It's nothing like the original. It's a major bummer.
It is thicker than most Essies I own, but if you're used to Indie glitters, it's no thicker than those. I didn't find it to be goopy. I don't own the original, but even in pictures you can tell that it's not the same. This one has blue glitter, not diamond dust. Yes, if you're looking for a dupe, it's a bummer.
I used a few other blue polishes to try and get some variation in the blue "sky" and then stamped some silver stars on top, because what's a starry night without stars?
|What I used: Essie Starry, Starry Night, Essie Bell-Bottom Blues, Color Club It's Raining Men, and stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome and plate UC 2-01.|
