Revlon Star - Over Sally Hansen Arabian Night, and a little Franken for good measure :)

Do you remember I said I liked Arabian Night in my last polish post BUT that I had already changed it...well I did and here it is.  I have cheated a little actually I admit, because I put on a coat of a franken polish first over Arabian Night, before adding the Revlon Star top coat.  For those who have to know (people like me then, because I would have to know too!) I made this franken using some colour pigments and some holo glitter in a polish that had a clear base and sparse blue glitter which I already had, but didn't like.  I got the pigments and holo glitter from here and if you are into frankens you should check out his shop.  He is a nice man called Garry, and is very helpful and not overpriced like some I have seen.  Tell him I sent you, you won't get a discount, I just like to say hi!

Right then, on to the next bit, Revlon 'Star'.  Revlon Star is a top coat, and comes from a pair with a base colour polish called 'Rock' but they are available to buy individually.  I just bought the top coat this time because the base colour is one I have dupes of.  I love this top coat, it is a mix of purple-y blue and silver small glitter particles and large hologram hexagonal glitter pieces.  Best of all, it was a bargain at £1.99 including delivery from here.  You have to manipulate the large glitter pieces a little to get the right amount on the brush and of course the nail, but nothing that was too much of a trial and the end result was worth it.  Overall the Revlon topper gave a lovely foil like sheen finish to my nails, and sparkled like crazy in the sun.  I was going to add a matte top coat, but I forgot!  Maybe next time I will though, because I just know it would look awesome.  I hope you like it.
