In the meantime, I painted my nails today with a $1.00 polish I picked up at a beauty supply in a town about 30 miles from here. This little beauty supply was not in the best part of town, and I really didn't think I came away with anything all that exciting--until I used this one for the first time today. Malibu Gold Starry Night is possibly as close as I'll ever get to owning the other polish with a similar name. I don't know how close it actually is to Essie's Starry Starry Night, but I think it's beautiful.
Above & Below: This deep inky cobalt shade is filled with tiny lighter blue foil glitter that twinkles and sparkles. The deep blue base has a jelly finish, which is always appealing to me. Note how the bottle comes complete with nail polish stains in another color!
Isn't that a pretty shade? I used 2 coats, touching up the few bald areas before applying the second coat. This polish took a couple of minutes longer than normal to dry, but once it did, the finish looked like glass. All of the photos were taken with an Ott lamp, with the exception of the last photo which was taken with a flash. I found a little bit of information via Google on the company that manufacturers this polish, and it's called New Cal Development. I'm definitely going to be on the look out for more polishes from this company, and hope they have some others as nice as this one.
