piCture pOlish Starry Night – the new collaboration shade by Llarowe: Swatches and Review

Oh piCture pOlish Starry Night.. be still my heart. ♥

One nail polish effect I can’t get enough of is the piCture pOlish scattered holographic finish in their squishy jelly bases. Just a few weeks ago piCture pOlish Cosmos stole my heart and just one look at it made it immediately to my favorite nail polish of 2012. I knew the second I saw Cosmos that I would need every other scattered holo jelly piCture pOlish ever made and will make in the future. Kryptonite, Monroe and O’Hara – all of them. :) And now piCture pOlish together with llarowe did it again with their new collaboration shade Starry Night.

piCture pOlish describes Starry Night as a charcoal scatter holo jelly with multi-colour sparks. When I first looked at the bottle I thought it is a black scattered holo jelly but when I applied it I was excited to see that is a charcoal scattered holo jelly. ♥

In the pictures I am wearing three coats of piCure pOlish Starry Night but if you would apply a fourth coat you might make it look almost black if you like.

Have I already mentioned how much I love this scattered holo shimmer? :D
I am having difficulties with spotting the multi-color sparks because I always thought the piCture pOlish scattered holo effect is made of bigger and smaller holo particles so I thought the smaller shimmer particles are smaller holo shimmer particles. But either way I love how pretty the different sizes of the shimmer are floating in the squishy jelly base. :)

Starry Night was sent to me by piCture pOlish for review consideration.

Llarowe and piCture pOlish did a perfect job with the creation of Starry Night. I love the charcoal base and my obsession with love for piCture pOlish’s scattered holo nail polishes is no secret. :D

The application of piCture pOlish Starry Night was a bliss. With the first coat though I thought “oh my, this is never going to end up opaque” because it is very sheer and even watery at the first coat. With the second coat I was very positively surprised though to see that – if you don’t mind a bit of visible nail line – it was almost opaque. With a third coat it was perfectly opaque with no visible nail line on my nails. Also the application of the second and third coat wasn’t watery anymore.
I love how shiny the jelly bases of piCture pOlish are on their own even without a top coat. I added a top coat to my manicure because I wanted it to dry asap but Starry Night is so shiny that it doesn’t even need one.

Are you as in love with the piCture pOlish scattered holo effect as I am? :D

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥

  1. LOVE your photos!! My review is going up later tonight… funny that you said you needed three coats, mine was almost opaque in one and perfectly opaque in two! Either way it’s a beautiful polish, and I definitely share your love for piCture pOlish scattered holos!! :)

    • Thank you so much Emma! :) Yes the first coat was very sheer for me but then it built up a lot with the second coat and was almost perfect. I personally would wear it with two coats too because I don’t mind a tiny bit of VNL. :)
