Starrily Swatch and Review (+ Giveaway)

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things after finishing up the 31 Day Challenge, and have a lot of unique projects that I'm working on. I hope to share them with you soon! In the meantime, I have swatches of some gorgeous Starrily polishes to share with you. This new-to-me indie brand has lots of fun, youthful glitters, and has generously offered up a couple of bottles for one lucky reader to win!

Bright Light is a chunky mix of neon glitters. Definitely fun and very 80s! I have shown one coat here over Zoya Purity. The big glitters can be tricky to grab with the brush, so definitely flip it upside down for a few minutes before applying to make it easier.

Diamond Dusted is a gorgeous iridescent glitter topper with squares, hexes, and smaller glitter pieces. It really shines over dark colors, so I've shown it over Cult Nails Time Traveler. The glitter was plentiful and applied evenly without difficulty.

Sea Glass is a teal shredded glitter topper. The shreds in this polish are larger than any of the other shredded toppers I've tried, but having said that, I didn't run into any troubles with pieces sticking up off the nail. The pieces are super reflective and give a very pretty effect. Shown over OPI Ski Teal We Drop.

Space Candy may be my favorite of the bunch! This glitter topper has an abundance of bright pink and blue glitters mixed in with lots of holographic silver glitter. It applied beautifully and was so sparkly. Shown here is one coat over Duri Into the Further.

Strawberry Donut...mmm. Now I'm hungry! This sweet pink semi-opaque base is sprinkled with a rainbow of small glitters and a few medium sized pieces here and there. The formula on this was lovely, needing just two coats for the opacity shown. It was nice and smooth, no streaks.

We're All Mad Here is another one of my favorites. How lovely does it look with Julep Taylor? This pink, black, and silver glitter topper has stars, squares, hexes, and dots (though I didn't end up with any of the dots in my swatch).

Zombie Blood is an all-green mix of lime and chartreuse. To make the lighter greens pop, I chose to layer it over OPI Jade is the New Black. This polish gives a kind of fizzy, carbonated effect, almost like Mountain Dew!
