Darling Diva Help Me Obi Wan Kenobi, You're My Only Hope

To kick off this week of Star Wars polishes, I'm focusing on famous quotes from the series. Today's polish (and quote) is Darling Diva Help Me Obi Wan Kenobi, You're My Only Hope. I don't know if this is the most famous line from the series (wait for tomorrow's quote) but I would argue that this is the line of dialogue that eventually propels Luke on his hero's journey and sets up the plot for the first movie.

HMOWKYMOH (yes, I'm abbreviating it because that is a mouthful [handful?] to type repeatedly) is described as a "soft white polish full of blue shimmer and holo sparkle." It is also described as being sheer, and I would say this is a spot-on description all the way around. The formula is good, though-- a touch on the thick side but easy to apply. And it is indeed sheer, but builds up nicely. I used three coats and while it isn't completely opaque, has a nice delicate look to it without being too thick. Personally, I think this polish benefits from not being 100% opaque and so I don't mind that there is some visible nail line. You could layer this over a light color if you wanted it to be opaque.

This polish is so gorgeous; I fell completely in love with it. It has a very ethereal feel to it, just like Princess Leia's hologram in the movie (and also a bit translucent). It's soft and delicate and looked very elegant and ladylike. I felt like a hand model while I was wearing it, hah! I think this is one of my favorite polishes so far! 


  1. This is incredible. From the name to the colour, to the finish, it's now a must have on my list.

  2. This looks amazing! I really like this kind of soft and delicate polishes.

  3. Such a refreshing color on the nails this polish is.

  4. My nails are too long for this since I'd have a lot of visible nail line showing but I think this is such a pretty shade.
