Adorned Nails: KOH Green Stardust



Meet Bronzation's and Blue Universe's cousin: Green Stardust. It is probably the least 'exciting' of the bunch of KOH flaky polishes but that doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve some love here.

Green Stardust is a dark grey/khaki green jelly with silvery micro-glitters and the usual iridescent flakies. The flakies are green when viewed upfront and aqua/blue and sometimes purple when viewed at an angle.


With flaky polishes, it's always nice to pile on the layers to pack on the metallic flakes for maximum impact. I did four coats on all nails except the ring finger, which has three.

Because it's basically a jelly polish, polishing with it is so trouble-free. Also, in general, any flaws in application or any minor dents tend to elude detection due to the busy-ness and density of particles in the polish. Gotta love flaky polishes for that!

This is such a different take on flakies, I really like it. I must admit the blue version is my favourite, but I'd love to own either one of them all ;) This colour looks gorgeous on you!

I love all the flakies you have shown here. Stunning photos as always my dear.

Wow, that's a really nice colour. I'm into all kind of greens and especially greens with a hint of brown! Wow, I should buy this immediately!

Adis said...

LEAST exciting?! Are you kidding me?!
Note to self: Go to store and buy it :(!

(You're awful for my wallet you know :p.)

Gorgeous nails, beautiful polishes! So glad I came across your blog! =)

@thenailaholic
I'm glad you like it! :)

@AmyGrace
Thank you! :)

@Jette Fromm
Thanks! Personally, I think Blue Universe is the most awesome of the three......so far. :)

@rmcandlelight
Haha, it sure is! :D

@KittyBonkers
Keep this one in mind for next time. You might want to get Blue Universe along with it too. :)

@Toyomi
A green fish! Hee hee! :D

@D.Sadie
Thank you! I use a simple Nikon D40 but this model has unfortunately been discontinued. You could check out the D3100 model instead. Btw, I have no secrets. The camera does most of the work for me. :D

@Poetic Realist
Well, KOH does do international shipping these days (shipping fee is a fixed rate). So, it is possible for you to order KOH online. Do have a look at my post called Guidelines On Where To Buy KOH Nail Polish. It has information on how overseas customers can order KOH through their website. :)

@KTee
Heh heh, I'm a green influence. ;D I'm glad you love this one, KTee. It's actually even more awesome in real life, to be honest. Some things, you just need to see them in person. :)

@Cristina
Yay, I'm pleased to hear that! :)

@Jello Kitty
I'm very happy you like this one. :)

@sky@laestetica
With flaky polishes, you really need close-up photos for readers to be able to appreciate its iridescent beauty. Thanks! :)

@-Diana-
Thank you, Diana. I'm pleased you took the time to read the tag/award section! That's very sweet of you. :)

@nail crazy
I'm glad you like it. :)

@sugar sugar
This is unlike any other polish I've seen either. It's great that you like this one, sugar sugar. :)

@BellasUnhaseCia
Oh, it's great that this is to your liking. Obrigada! :)

@Stormayhlegj
It's more green than brown, actually. I'm glad you like its beauty! :)

@Adis
Well, so far, I still think Blue Universe is da bomb. BUT that's just me. :P Still, this Green Stardust is even more pretty in real life. Its green is even greener. Have a look in the store if you have the chance.

I know, I am a very bad influence to some. Yikes, I should be arrested by the beauty police! I did say to you once: The more you see, the more you would want to buy. Sigh! If you can restrain yourself, try to wait for offers at the parfumerie stores. Sometimes, Douglas has 10% off offers and some other stores may have BTW-vrij days. It will take some waiting but such offers do make a difference. I bought mine during one of those special offer days. :)

@Honey Bomb
It's very nice of you to drop by. Thank you for your kind words! :)

Stunning! Breathtaking! Drooling! Amazing! Who doesn't want to own one of the flakies.

Awesome photos. You are a real pro my dear!

Take care, Nicole x

Witoxicity said...

@Nicole
Thank you, Nicole! I gotta say, flakies are really fun in every way. :D

Anutka said...

I'm fascinated by this polish! I keep looking at it and can't figure out the color. Looks great on you :)

Witoxicity said...

@Anutka
Thanks, Anutka. Flakies and holos have that effect on us all. :D The base colour for this one is green-grey but irl, the green is a bit more prominent. :)

Paulina said...

it looks good on you!

Witoxicity said...

@Paulina
Thank you, Paulina. :)

Honey Bomb said...

PS - I think this may be a close dupe to Alessandro Poison Green, but I'm sure it's a better value as the Alessandro bottles are so tiny!

Witoxicity said...

@Honey Bomb
Thanks for the possible-dupe alert. :) Well, the Alessandro bottles contain only 5ml and I believe they cost just under €5 each. The KOH polishes come in 10ml bottles and they retail for €14.95 each. It looks like Alessandro wins in terms of better value but for the price that you pay for KOH, you do walk away with a classy case as well. :)

Honey Bomb said...

Good call! Thanks for the comparison on size/price. =)

@Honey Bomb
My pleasure! :)
