Feeling blue

4/29/11 - Feeling this gorgeous Sinful Colors blue, Hot Spot! I bought this polish with the intention of making a franken for the coveted, VHTF Essie Starry Starry Night. Here it is alone. It's a dark, royal (almost navy) blue with turquoise microglitter - but the microglitter is so fine that it's barely noticeable (especially when combined with a silver glitter topcoat, a few photos down).

Then I decided to play a little. Base is still Sinful Colors Hot Spot, but on top I put one coat of: CC Revvvolution (thumb), CC Worth The Risque (index), Ulta Pinata-Yada-Yada (middle), Sinful Colors You Just Wait (ring), and Cover Girl Boundless Color Bronze Beauty (pinky).

Back to the original plan: SSN dupe. It's not, as you can see, because I put the silver glitter on as a topcoat rather than mixing it into Hot Spot. I think, though, that if you darken Hot Spot with a bit of black and add some silver glitter, you'll have a decent shot at a dupe of everyone's favorite starry sky polish!
