I tried out a possible New Year manicure last night. I have an old Maybelline, Twinkle Twinkle who is supposed to be a possible dupe for Essie Starry, Starry Night.
Well, if that is a dupe, my lemming for Starry, Starry Night disappeared in a hurry. It turned out a dark blue, gloopy mess with small silver flecks sparsely scattered. Possibly, my bottle just needs thinning, so I'll give it another chance before stamping rubbish all over it.
Last night I didn't have the patience though, so I just quickly covered it with one layer of Nubar Tiara. That is the top coat sold together with the Royal Gems collection that was released earlier this fall. What do you think? Could it pass for a New Years Eve Manicure?
I haven't made my mind up yet, but I like how it looks. It makes me curious of what Tiara will do to the polishes is what meant for, the Royal Gems.
(and, I have to tell you, something with the blogger image transfer just royally f*cked up, so the pictures you see are two of the ones I cancelled. The one I saved for you is nowhere to be found, they are in my picture archive just like they're supposed to, but impossible to find in blogger. Well, it is this or nothing!)
