Dating a Royal is a jelly cobalt blue polish from the OPI Summer 2008 Mod About Brights Collection. I wore this polish a couple of days before I took the picture, so excuse the tip wear. I used a base coat, 3 coats of Dating a Royal and 1 coat of Seche Vite.
A long time favorite that took me ages to get my hands on. Because it’s a jelly the formula is, of course, a bit on the thin side.

This is a navy jelly with tiny silver microglitter.
This is just about an exact dupe for the original Essie Starry Starry Night!
At the end, sweet raisins and balsams together have joined iris and Tonka bean to round the composition. I detect mostly violet, raspberry, iris and cranberry. Not exactly my cup of tea but definitely impressive and worth trying.
:) The first thing you'll notice is that the EDT right off the bat has a lot of 'pinkness' to it; you can sense right away that it is a more youthful version, and the fluffier, girly frou-frou version of the two.
In the EDT, you're hit with the candied hairspray note right away along with raspberry; it's not in the official note description but when compared with the EDP, the EDT has an unmistakable cotton candy (ethyl maltol) note.
I added the silver square studs from Born Pretty Store to make the manicure look even better 😀 The first two pictures are taken with the flash light on ….
