Before I was able to get my hands on Essie Starry Starry Night I was determined to make my own replica. I went on to make pink and purple versions, but not realizing only certain sparkles worked they were a bust. Last fall NARS had a sale on several of their polishes and I grabbed three. I ended up hating them, the smell, the formula, and I got terrible wear from them. I decided that Midnight Express would make a great base for my SSN dupe. However because I wasn't big on glitter at the time I didn't have much to work with. I used China Glaze Kalidescope Him Out to acheive the glittery goodness of this polish. I believe the Kaliescope collection was recently discontinued, so get them while you still can.
