Digit-al Dozen Does Childhood; Day 3

A Sunday night staple at our house when I was a kid was watching the Disney movie of the week at 6 pm. You have to keep in mind that I lived in small town Ontario growing up; we only had a hand full of tv channels and there was no movie theatre without driving almost an hour, no VCR's, DVD's, netflix (heck, no one had a computer or cell phone then!), satellite dishes or cable service (in our area anyway). What few channels you got was from an antenna and rotor that you dialed to pick up what you could and if you were really lucky, the station wasn't snowy. (Maybe this is why we spent so much time outdoors playing as kids?) I think maybe satellite dishes were on the market when I was a teen if I think about it; those huge monstrosities the size of vehicles sitting in the back yard of a few homes (aka, you were rich!). Anyway, the Disney movies on Sunday night were never missed; they were watched after the special Sunday dinner of roast, then a bath before watching the movie which was the close to the weekend before school the next day.  I remember it is The Wonderful World of Disney; which is what today's Digit-al Dozen Day 3 mani is based upon.  Here's what I came up with.

For the base, I decided to use a recently purchased bottle of Pretty Serious Eye of Copernicus; then thought at the same time, I would see how close it is to Essie Starry Starry Night and Colors by llarowe Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

Bottle pix; left to right:  Essie Starry Starry Night, middle is Pretty Serious Eye of Copernicus and ring is Colors by llarowe Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.  They look pretty close to one another in the bottle.

For swatching, this is one coat of each polish; index is Essie Starry Starry Night, middle is Pretty Serious Eye of Copernicus and ring is Colors by llarowe Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  

Two coats, same order.  It is clear to me that the other two polishes aren't dupes to Essie SSN if this was the makers intent; in fact, they are closer to each other than Essie SSN. Both are too dark and blackened to be dupes IMHO.

Different angle just in case lighting is different to throw swatches, but nope.

For the purposes of doing my nails, I did the rest of the fingers in Colors by llarowe Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star as preferred it over the Pretty Serious.  I actually preferred Essie SSN but need to conserve it lol!

Top coated all with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped using Mundo de Unas 11 using Big SdP D (stars) with accent using Big SdP Y.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
