Urban Outfitters ~ Firefly

Urban Outfitters ~ Firefly
Light green shimmer with blue glitter

Here’s another Urban Outfitters polish I found on the bottom of the box of untried, where it has been sitting since there last was a sale.

It’s quite a special polish, it reminds me a bit of Deborah Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream. I’m not sure if they’re dupes or not, someone else will have to be the judge of that.

The formula is really good and the polish applies easily. I used two coats for my mani and the drying time is good.

This is what two coats and no topcoat look like:

It’s a little pale for me on its own, but there are ways to get around that. I used stamping to add a little extra. I found a nice wavy motif on Moyou London’s stamping plate Sailor Collection-07 and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin’ Jade.

Ah, that’s much better:

The green silver almost looks metallic on my nails. I quite like that. 

I need a stamping plate with fireflies! Can you recommend one?
Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Strong shimmer with glitter
Overall impression: Great quality polish, nice effect!
Buy again: Yes


  1. With the stamping I like it a lot - but without it also is too pale for my liking!

  2. i agree whit marias Nail art! i like the stamping.

  3. You did a great job with the stamping, it looks gorgeous and very well matched.

  4. I like it alone too, but stamping always raises everything on a higher level :)
