Happy Monday, everyone! (Even though Monday is almost over at the time of writing/posting this, oops.) How was everybody’s weekends? I went to New York Renaissance Faire, like the huge dork that I not-so-secretly am. This week’s theme was “Kilt Weekend,” and I discovered that there are a lot of men with way nicer legs than mine. It happens. And while I didn’t dress up, I did wear something apropos for the occasion.
This magical concoction is Starlight Polish Dragon Scales, a teal-blue jelly base with gallons of bronze/gold/green shifting shimmer. I used two coats on its own, but it can be layered, which I think would help with the tiiiiny bit of translucence I have at my tips if that sort of thing bothers you. It was less visible in person though, the shimmer totally drowned it out.
This didn’t shrink back once I put on topcoat either, which I’m thrilled about! Jellies always do that to me because they hate me. But not Dragon Scales. She’s too good for that.
Flash pic! Look at that yummy shimmer. Fabulous!
And finally, Dragon Scales in indirect light, where she’s still very pretty and dignified.
Am I making it obvious enough that I’m in love with this polish? I’ve had it on for three days and I still can’t stop staring at my nails! (I should also mention that it still hasn’t chipped at all! Though I’m not sure how much of that is due to the quality of the polish or to my daily application of Duri Rejuvacote on top of it.)
This is my first experience with Starlight Polish and it sure as heck won’t be my last. I actually bought a second polish from them and plan to wear and swatch that soon; I’m so excited to try it out now, haha.
Their polishes can be purchased at their Etsy shop!
Thanks for reading! ❤
