I have to give credit to The Daily Nail. She did a star polish the other week and I thought the technique was a great idea. Polish the color first, put a star sticker on top and then paint the black over it. I did have problems with the stars sticking and had to go back over my stars with s fine brush with my polish. The actual colors that are showing on my polish are the black (China Glaze Liquid Leather) and the stars are made with striping colors from It's So Easy Stripe Rite polish. They don't have colors listed on their bottles. I assume I have used glitter blue and red, and metallic silver.
