Starry Night Nails

Have you ever bought nail polish that looked gorgeous in the bottle but looks totally different when applied to your nails?

This Russian Navy annoys me whenever I look at it. Lol.

While rummaging tru a box filled with discounted OPIs, it saw this extremely beautiful mystical purple  nail polish which I loved! Without looking at it's name, I immediately grabbed and paid for the nail polish.

Mana tau (Malaysian slang for 'who knew'. Lol.) the nail polish was some kinda weird navy blue which I didn't like one bit. The gorgeous red and purple micro shimmer did not show up one bit!

Boy, was I annoyed! 

Here's a picture of a thin layer of polish swatched on a piece of paper and held against the sun.

The poor polish laid unused for a year till I decided to use it and give it a twist to suit my liking.

I layered my polish.

Ever tried that?

I painted a layer of MAC Nocturnelle, which is basically a cream black, as the base and applied a thin layer of OPI Russian Navy on top.

It turned out to be a really pretty nail colour which appeared black, navy blue and purple under different lights! I was really happy with it! =D

I also applied Ulta3's Silver Glitter for gradient tips, just to add some pizzaz. Hehe.

Have you ever purchased a nail polish which you didn't like at all?

  1. Funny thing is, this morning I woke up and was like "boy, I could use some glitter on my nails today." And saw this after! haha! ♥

    I bought these nail polishes before that looks wonderful and all pretty and stuff but on my nails they were like almost close to being clear and needed like 4 layers to be seen!

  2. It looks gorgeous! It happens to me ALL THE TIME. I just buy the polish coz it looks so pretty... and when finally swatch it, it sucks =___= glad u managed to make some use out of your polish ^^

  3. I really hate it when polishes look pretty in the bottle but it doesn't translate in the same way onto the nails. I love what you did with it though. The look that you did was stunning!!


  4. Your nails are so pretty :)

  5. I haaaaate when polishes do that!! Especially I am annoyed with glitter ones. They look so pretty in the bottle but when you use it you can hardly get any glitter onto your nails ><"" I really liked what you did with your polish and the sparkly tips are gorgeous! :)

  6. Wow this is so pretty!! I wanna attempt this so bad but Im horrible with nail arts. :(
