I saw the starriest sky of my life in New Zealand. I couldn’t believe how many stars were overhead- it was really a special moment. Here in the big city, you’re lucky to see any stars at all. I wanted to make a color that reminded me of that sky.
This color is a deep blue with holo glitter. There are some deep blues with holo glitter on the market- OPI DS Fantasy and I’m sure there are others. But the blue base is a not a navy- it’s a midnight inky color, Orly Star of Bombay. I like this color a lot, straight or for mixing. It’s an unusual deep blue without red undertones. It actually reminds me of old bowling balls, the deep blue ones with random white marbling running through them. (Hmm, sounds like a good nail project…)
So, it’s just 2/3 Orly Star of Bombay mixed in with 1/3 China Glaze Kalideoscope Him Out, a celadon green holo glitter. You could also try half and half- a little holo glitter goes a long way, though. I even liked this color enough not to Konad it!
