Essie Starry Starry Night Swatch and Review

Hello my lovely readers! Today's post is a quick one to show you one of my recent manicure, this has to be in my top 10 favourite mani's just because this Essie polish is gorgeous. I was browsing Facebook recently and came across a post stating that you could buy any Essie polish in Boots for £5.99. This offer included the newer retro revival collection, I like many others have been wanting to get my hands on the very popular and highly talked about Essie Starry Starry Night. So let me show you what I created with this gorgeous polish and an amazing stamping image.

Like I said this polish is amazing it may not be a complete dupe for the original Essie Starry Starry night which apparently had smaller glitters and more of them but the revival version is still stunning.

First I used two coats of Essie Starry Starry Night, this is a dark blue jelly polish with silver glitters. I didn't have any problems applying the polish and it did reach full opacity in 2 coats for me. It does have a thick formula which I actually like in a polish rather than having something very sheer that takes 3 coats to cover the nail line. 

After a night of admiring this amazing polish and how squishy is looks on the nail I decided I wanted to stamp over it. In the end I thought nothing would look better than a star design, so I chose this image from Uber Chic collection 1 plate 3.

For the stamping I used my Born Pretty silver stamping polish, I really love the way it turned out. I think the silver worked well with the dark blue and if you look close you can see some of those beautiful silver glitters shining through.

I was really happy with this polish and the fact that I could use my boots points to purchase it was just the icing on the cake. I would love to know what you think of the newer Starry Starry Night vs the older one? Do you like both? Or are you disappointed that they changed the formula? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 

I really hope you have enjoyed this post and you are all having a fab nail day, I have some amazing collections coming up and a Uber Chic haul. Chat to you all again soon.

  1. Ahh I love this! That silver looks amazing, especially over Starry Starry Night. I still can't make my mind up - I'm not a massive dark blue fan but this looks so pretty! x
