NOTD - Stargazer 317



Every time I try a different Stargazer nail polish (£2.50) especially from the Ultra Cover range I tell myself it's my new favourite from them and this one is no different! 
(I'm really such a sucker for multi-toned jewel shaded nail polish).

My camera is normally quite nifty at picking up different shades and it always accurate, however this shade seemed to be impossible to capture so the swatch above it the best I could do. Though in real life the sides of the nails have a lovely purple tone... which is why I thought it would be a good idea to show you what it looks like with only one coat.
 

This really gives a better idea of the different tones in the nail polish... but the look of it on the nails changes in different lighting. I've found the more artificial the light the more multi toned it is and beautiful looking. In day light however it has a gorgeous jewel like tone to it that looks so shimmery yet smooth. 

Also a dream to apply (and remove) only taking two coats and not at all streaky!


I definitely haven't done the 317* nail polish enough justice, though I hope you can see from the bottle how amazing it really is...and for only £2.5o! Really amazing value compared to other nail polish brands. 

*the 317 shade on the website seems to be linked to the totally wrong swatch, haven't a clue why. But if you ordered 317 the bottle you will receive will be the same as above.

Every time I think of trying a new shade I do a quick search to see if there's any nail swatch images to see the true shade but 

I rarely find any, except my own! 

So I am thinking of creating a little Stargazer Nail Polish library 
of all the shades I own to help others. Really would love to know your thoughts on this and if I should maybe do this with 
other brands as well.

Loving this tone! Looks great. I'm usually quite boring when it comes to nail varnishes (pink and red, pink and red...) but am gonna try this out!

I'd love to have a real library of Stargazer polishes, in fact I plan to order there next month, and it would be a pleasure to know about all the shades you own before that ;)
Thank you so much for that thought!
And this shade is absolutely wonderful, I have to add it to my wishlist now!! :)

Sriya said...

Beautiful colour! I don't own a single Stargazer nail polish but you're inspiring me to buy one! x

Seanna said...

I think thats a good idea! If I order of the internet I always tend to be disappointed with at least one colour...if you had a library I think that would help lots of us! I have never tried Stargazer polish but this colour looks amazing...xx

Sammy said...

Totally love the idea of a nail swatch library. I'd love to see OPI and all the other brands aswell. It's true that you can never find a good swatch. I like to see the swatches on really nails and not just on one acrylic nail.

p.s. i got the NYC glitter polish that you featured over the nude revlon shade. A VD pressie to myself :-) can't wait to try it out.
Thanks.
