So let's take a closer look at Starry Night...
Sinful Colors Starry Night
(retail: $1.99, 0.5 oz)
Starry Night is a black jelly with tiny, square holographic glitters and metallic gold shards.
Three coats, no top coat:
Starry Night required three coats for good opacity (not shocking considering that it's a jelly). It was a tiny bit thick/goopy but not difficult to work with. The square holo glitters sparkle more in person than what you see in these pics--they're quite pretty against the black jelly background. The metallic gold shards are very sparse, so you'll be lucky to get a few on your brush when you pull it out of the bottle. I had to fish them out with my brush and even then, I didn't manage to get one on my pinky nail. If you're not one for shards, you can easily brush them off against the side of the bottle before applying to your nail, considering that you'll probably only get one or two on your brush at a time (if you're lucky).
This polish dries somewhat shiny but it's super bumpy, which diminishes the shine. You'll definitely need a few thick coats of top coat to smooth it out. Dry-time was very good, even after three coats.
And because you know I always have to "mattify all the glitters", here's what Starry Night looks like after two coats of matte top coat:
I had to use two coats of matte top coat here, because it was still kind of bumpy after one. The gold shards are a lot more prominent when worn as a matte...I'm not quite sure if I really like this look or not!
