I have a terrible lemming for Essie Starry Starry Night...so I thought I would kill my lemming by getting a similar dupe for it. Unfortunately it did nothingi to soothe my lemming but it's still gorgeous and doesn't really need an introduction.
The first coat goes on a very greyish, barely blue jelly with glitter. The brush was kind of stiff, but I guess that's expected since this polish is from ages ago. The "magical" part of this polish is that when you put the 2nd coat on, it became a deep blue/grey jelly with glitter. I paid a hefty price for this baby, but I keep telling myself that it's not the most expensive liquid per mL that I use (granted work related stuff isn't my personal money).
Can you guess what liquid costs $3K/mL??
Anyways, moving away from my most expensive bottle of nail polish and onto some others. Aside from Essie SSN, NARS Zulu is another one I wish I could get my hands on..a dark green jelly! And since my favorite color is blue, I am also on the hunt for a dark blue jelly, which I think I have found. I first saw Illamasqua's Propaganda on Brooke's blog (Getcha Nails Did) and I knew I had to get something similar to it. So I first got Nfu Oh! 119.
This is pretty but for some reason I was still lemming Propaganda...so after a few months, I decided to take the plunge and buy it, along with a few others that are only sold overseas. Propaganda is a darker blue jelly than 119.
Next we have Illamasqua Rampage, which I somehow managed to snag from Sephora before it was sold out again. It's actually a bit darker green than seen in the picture.
Another green, which in real life is like the "green" in the Crayola crayon box. It's a very bright true green.
and then Phallic...makes me giggle. hehehe. It reminds me of other dark blue shimmers I have so it's on the chopping block.
And lastly, Illamasqua Lament, which is a flamingo/coral cream. I think I like RBL's Coral better...
Well, I'm pretty sure the next post will be purge 2. I just have to get motivation to take some pictures...which I seem to lack when I get home. I don't even have my nails painted b/c I don't want to sport chipped nail polish due to the fact that I'm too lazy to change polish frequently :( After being at work for 11 hours, I just feel like vegetating when I get home....
