NOTD: Starry Skies with Revlon Top Coat


As you probably already know, I picked up a bottle of "Star" top coat which I thought was from Revlon's holiday nail polish collection, but apparently is not. It was displayed with the "new" holiday shades. The holiday collection overall isn't that creative: a red, a white, a green. Your typical holiday fare. The one item that caught my eye however, was Star, a gloriously glitzy top coat. The polish is a clear base with blue and silver glitter and silver holo confetti suspended in it.


I am usually only a full on opaque glitter kind of gal, but this just looked so good in the bottle I had to give it a try. I rooted through my polish drawer for a colour that looked like it could create something similar to the look of the bottle. I was initially going to use a blue as the base, but I ended up using a Sephora based grey that I frankened some time ago.


To get the look I used two coats of the dark grey with two coats of Star on top. I found that if you brush this top coat on like regular polish, non of the glitter and fun stuff stays on your nail. You kind of have to gob it on and then brush it out. Like most glitter polishes of this sort, they larger holo confetti is totally random, so you end up with a ton on one nail and then none on the other, so it takes a bit of finesse to get a more even look.

I'm not sure what I think of this look... what do you think? Have you tried this polish yet?
