Starry Starry Night? Galaxy Girl? Meteor Shower? Across the Universe?

Hmm...it seems like all the good names I could use for this layering combo are already taken! I think this is probably something like a second cousin to China Glaze Meteor Shower, which you can see here on Polish or Perish. *drools* Oh, excuse me. I love Meteor Shower...anyone know where I could find it? Anyway, for this mani, I used one coat of Rimmel Black Satin (any black creme would do), one coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue It, and one coat of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie.

I really, really, really love this. If it weren't for the one chip after five full days of wear, I would definitely keep it on longer, but I know there have got to be more chips coming...*sigh* I highly encourage all of you to click on the pictures to enlarge, especially the last one, which really shows this combo's beauty the best, as well as all the different colors of glitter - gold, green, blue, copper, purple, and probably some others that I missed. And now I go to take it off...another time, darling!

Have a great weekend!

  3. Excellent layering. I never would have thought of something like this. And 5 days of wear before chipping...unheard of in my world. LOVE THIS! good luck on your search for the actual lacquer you immitated...but I really like this effect and its easy to get my hands on. Great post!
