I haven’t done a Nail of the Day post in a long time because my manis are so rudimentary compared to the talented nail bloggers I follow. But I reassessed: my role is not primarily to introduce you to new mani designs, but to let you know about nail products worth trying or better avoided.
Today’s NOTD is the pairing of one of my faves – Deborah Lippmann It’s Raining Men – a tomato red cream that I bought in a deluxe size (0.27 fl.oz.) as part of last year’s holiday collection set of 12 on HSN…
and my brand new purchase, Starrily Galaxy, a topper that’s thick with holo glitters, circles, stars, hex, that resemble stars and planets in a clear base meant to convey a galaxy.
I had planned to pair Galaxy with a dark blue or black, but the DL red just spoke to me last night because I am planning to wear a black top with cut-in fabrics in red patterns when we go to dinner with friends tonight.
The Starrily topper is super-thick. It has the most stuff in it of any topper I have ever tried. And it’s in a thick base. Nevertheless, I piled it on, using two coats because I wanted a lot of bling. Probably not at all necessary. I purchased Galaxy on the Starrily website for $10, and I love it. It’s probably one of the best toppers I’ve ever purchased ‘coz there’s just so much glitter in it.
It’s 5-free (no Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). The full size bottle I bought contains 0.5oz/15ml nail polish. They say there’s a mini size bottle with approx. 0.16oz/5ml nail polish, but I think that comes only in a collection. Starrily nail polish is vegan and cruelty-free, and made in the U.S.
What’s your favorite topper these days?
