FAQ: Is there any dupes for Starry Starry Night
Q: I love Essie's discontinued Starry Starry Nights but can't find this color anywhere! Is there any close dupes or possible alternatives for this gorgeous shade?
A: Starry Starry Night is one of Essie's highly sought after colors and I have some bad news addicts, the answer is No!
The unique blue jelly-ness of Starry Starry night makes it next to impossible to find an exact dupe. However, I went digging through my closet and found two close alternatives that you might find lurking at your favorite Dollar Tree. But I warn ya, it's just as hard to track these down.
Check out my findings below.
Here's what I came up with. Naturistics being the closest dupe to Starry Starry Night.
Crystal Blue is really gorgeous and perhaps one of Essie's biggest contenders. A true navy blue jelly loaded with the same blue and silver glitter as Starry Starry Night. The navy blue base is just a tad bit darker compared to Essie's.
Here's our pride and glory Starry Starry Night. The blue jelly base is really hard to describe. It's not your standard navy blue base, more muted and brighter at the same rate.
Maybelline's Twinkle Twinkle should be the easiest alternative to find at your Dollar Tree or Ebay. An opaque navy blue with silver glitter.
Another alternative that I didn't include in my post, Sephora's Blue Sapphire. It's more of a royal blue with chunkier glitter that's super easy to find at Sephora.
Have a wonderful day!

Have you seen Sephora brand blue sapphire? I think you need to throw that in there too and compare :) I bought that as a dupe.. I think it *needs* a pinch more glitter though

Hi Otrivia la Livia, Pama is a great color! Let me look and see if I have anything close :) Hi Lizliz, yeah, I have Blue Sapphire linked to this post above! It's definitely not as close as these two, but a nice alternative! :)
