A New Year Sky in March

There may be only one Starry Starry Night, but there are many like it. When cruising the mall for random nail polishes, this one was found. Kicks, Nothern Europe's own equivalent to Sally Beauty or something like that, has their own line of cosmetic with, among other things, an assortment of seasonally appropriate nail polish minis. This one was one of the holiday specials, and it's called New Year Sky. Oh, and have you missed my typical sideshots?!

Three coats of dark blue jelly with silver shimmer and glitter. One of the nicer substitutes for the coveted and oh so hard to find Essie classic.

I went on to make what I'd think of as a mistake.

I added Lights of Emerald City from OPI's upcoming soft shades collection Oz - the Great and Powerful. It was way too much, but seemed to work quite well as what we like to call muggle bait.

Me and my friend snatched the remaining two bottles at my local Kicks, but if you're in Sweden, Finland or Norway and have one close to you, maybe you'll get lucky!

New Year Sky was purchased with own funds.
Lights of Emerald City was sent for review.

Swedish word of the day:
stjärnhimmel -noun starry sky
Not only on New Year.


  1. Längtar efter att använda mitt! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    Men jag tänker fan inte ha något extra glitterlack på. ;D

  2. Muggle bait, lol. I think it looks nice both ways. I always have a fear of doing too much too.

  3. Oh my gosh, I love these types of polishes! Thanks for sharing!:)

  4. What a gorgeous polish! I don't live in Scandinavia, so I won't be able to buy it, but it looks great.

  5. oh that is probably the best looking alternative to SSN i have seen - love it!

  6. Looks awesome! I like the iridiscent glitters of lights in emerald city over it, but you're right, the white glitters are a bit much.

  7. Gorgeous! I actually prefer this over SSN. Now if only there was a way to order this from the US...

  8. I love that on it's own; ikwym about Lights of Emerald City being a bit much, I felt similar when I swatched it over Essie Power Clutch. I think the white glitters are a bit too big to wear over a dark colour.
