Colors by Llarowe - Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Today I will be reviewing a nail polish from polish e-tailer turned polish maker Llarowe. Her brand is called Colors by Llarowe and this polish is called Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. I remember when she first posted about it on her facebook page, saying she was mixing colors and one of them was remarkably similar to Essie's infamous Starry, Starry Night polish, a very hard to find, and expensive when you do, vintage polish. As soon as it was available for sale I snapped it right up because I've been lemming SSN practically since I started blogging!

Twinkle is a dark navy blue jelly packed with tiny square silver glitter pieces, like a stunning night sky. The formula was a bit on the thick side, I found it worked best when I applied it slowly. This is two coats and a top coat, although it is nicely shiny on it's own. I have seen comparisons between this and SSN and it's a touch deeper in color but is otherwise almost indiscernible.

You can pick this up on Llarowe's website for $12 for a 12 mL bottle. What do you think of this polish? Do you own the Essie polish it's modeled after? If so, how do you think they compare? I still want the original haha, I'm a sucker for the "unicorn" polishes that are hard to find.

  1. I grabbed this one, but haven't tried it yet, as I happened to come into a lot of blue sparkley polishes around the same time ... Zoya Dream/LA Colors Brilliant Blue which are pretty much dupes (I am wearing both now) and Picture Polish Cosmos...

    I do love Colors by Llarowe though, especially the holos. Smooth Criminal was probably one of my faves of 2013.....(but there are so many faves LOL)

    Happy Holidays!!!!!

  4. I still have to wear it - I got mine from a friend - but I never lusted after Starry Starry Night, so I wonder how much I'm going to like this ;)
