My Ten Friends: Sparkly Cycle of Summer


The upcoming collection from My Ten Friends features three new polishes: Solar Dragon, Space Opera and Starry Night. Each polish represents different parts of a summer day. I've included Mei Lynn's descriptions in italics and then my comments and photos. Let's get started shall we?!

*Solar Dragon represents the heat of the summer afternoon. Based on a NASA photo of a super hot "dragon tail" (plasma) erupting from the sun's surface.
*Space Opera represents the glorious setting of the sun. Inspired by a photo of sunset on a San Diego beach.
*Starry Night represents dreamy summery nights. Inspired by the famous Van Gogh painting "The Starry Night," this polish is dedicated to artists and all those who burn a creative fire inside them.



Solar Dragon has heaps and tons and gobs of holo glitter goodness which lends to its super sparkly-ness! In the bottle it shines like crazy but on the nail? OH MY GOODNESS. I don't think the sparkle in this one can be topped (or captured accurately by my camera). I used Illamasqua Boosh since it's black like the night sky, and then I topped it with two coats of Solar Dragon for double sparkle! Triple sparkle! All the way! I just don't know how she packed so much sparkle in there - she must have space fairy helpers or something!





Next is one coat of Space Opera layered over Wet N Wild's On a Trip. To date, this is my favorite purple glitter topper. yep. Favorite. Mostest. Favorite-est. EVAR.
It's packed with sparkle and contains a variety of different colored glitter, yet its still purple. How'd she do that?! It also has those ginormous holo hex glitters that I love so much! Space Opera is limited edition, so if you like this one definitely get it at launch!





-wistful sigh- Starry Night is the most beautiful shade of blue, jam packed with shimmer, glitter and beauty. Did I mention its beautiful? ;)
Although the Soap Opera polish is my favorite purple glitter topper, Starry Night is my favorite polish in this trio. -gasp!- Yes, Jen chose blue over purple. Yes, I surprised myself with this choice.
Its just the most beautiful, rich shade of blue and the polish has such a likeness to the original artwork. I think its pretty amazing! I wore one coat of Starry Night over OPI's Ogre the Top Blue. Did I mention how beautiful this is? :P
