Pretty and Polished Valentino over Sinful Colors Star Fish

Today we have a gorgeous polish from Pretty and Polished. This is Valentino, a clear polish packed with black and white matte glitter of varying size thats best used as a topcoat. I love unique topcoats like this, as they can be used on top of any polish you want and really maximize your manicure options! A so-so color can be transformed into a really awesome manicure with a great polish like this one on top.

Take, for instance, this polish from Sinful Colors. Star Fish is an okay pink, but certainly not a polish I reach for often. Slap a little Valentino on top and it becomes a really interesting manicure full of depth. Shown is two coats Valentino over two coats Star Fish. I was actually going to swap Star Fish but this combination is a winner! From far away this almost looks like a splatter mani! As I've mentioned previous posts, the Indie polish market is coming up with such unique and interesting colors. Definitely check them out! Pretty and Polished as well as many other great indie polish producers can be found on

Thanks so much for reading! 
All the best, 

Disclosure: I purchased this polish myself for review :o)


  1. It's a very cool idea, but I'm not a fan of that top coat. Those bits are a little too big for my liking, and I'd want more control on where they go on the nail. But still an awesome idea. I might take a look and see if I can find anything. Thanks for the post!

  2. what an interesting polish--love that it looks like you spent an hour dotting your nails instead of swiping a couple coats on.
