Oh starry starry night...

I'm sure most of you have come across the elusive Essie Starry Starry Night somewhere in the blogosphere. Unfortunately I caught the polish bug too late and I completely missed the time when this was available. So in an attempt to dupe it, I created my own layered version of this polish!

I used a base of OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue and topped it with a very very thin layer of China Glaze Dorothy Who. The thin layer is so that the blue base in Dorothy Who would not lighten the dark blue. I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I think this photo makes it look the most like a starry night sky :)

The polishes used: OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue! and China Glaze Dorothy Who?
Wow I've gone through a lot of Dorothy Who.

Under artificial light.
Blurry picture to show how glittery it is.
If you haven't come across the original Starry Starry Night, here are two beautiful swatches of this stunning polish from two fellow bloggers! Omg look at that blue and the depthhh.... Utterly stunning... sighh.

This swatch belongs to Katee from e-polishblog

This swatch belongs to Kaz from Pretty Random!
Kaz from Pretty Random has a really excellent comparison of "night sky" polishes here.

My layering combo does not give the same amount of depth nor does it have the right colour, but I was still happy with it! :) Maybe Essie Starry Starry Night will be mine one day... one day...
