Starry Night Mani

Maybelline Twinkle, Twinkle
How beautiful is this color?  I realized after I took the picture that I hadn't even put my top coat on yet, and they still were so shiny and glossy looking.  I used two coats, both dried fairly fast.  I love this one!
Twinkle, Twinkle is a deep, dark blue with a medium-heavy amount of fine silver glitter.  It covered really well and didn't give me that rough feeling that I found with Atlantis.  Of course, this didn't have as much glitter as Atlantis, plus the glitter particles are smaller.

Various lighting (it looks more like the right - the darker look).

I know there is a dupe out there for this one - I've seen it swatched on blogs before, but I can't remember what it was.  Any ideas?

edit:
AH HA! solved!  Essie Starry Starry Night!  Any others?

I'm going to the Melting Pot with my mom and sister today :)  I LOVE cheese fondue!  Plus I love spending time with my family.  Yesterday I had coffee with friend and fellow blogger, Liz, and then had a sushi and polish party with my longtime friend, Michelle.  And Sunday J and I are trying out a new restaurant!  Yay!  Oh, and I'm going to do a little cleaning this weekend - not yay, but that's ok.  Are you doing anything fun this weekend?

Have a great day all!

That's a very pretty polish!

I've never been to the melting pot but keep hearing good things about it. I guess I need to try it out ;)

You post title made me think and then run to my drawer of drugstore polishes (I really need to organize them as I have organzied my professional polishes) to find a Maybelline polish I bought back in the mid-eighties. It is called Starry Night, the second polish I had that was full of glitter to that extent (the first was its sister polish called Paint the Town Red, a very glittery red that I actually have a bottle still in the blister pack it was sold in, lol). My nails have only been sans nail color a handful of times since the Summer of 1974. So when I read the name of your post it brought back some good memeories. Love your blog.

Anonymous, you really should! I love the Melting Pot :) although cheese and chocolate fondue at home is just as fun (and a lot cheaper!)

SiameseFlame - Thank you so much!!! And I'm so glad my post brought back some good memories :) That is really special to hear. I need to organize my polishes too! I had everything so nicely organized and then I dragged it all out for a group polish shot and I've had it in a ton of cardboard boxes ever since. Thanks so much for following, Siamese! I love hearing great stories like this :)
