Hi All! I have another long time coming review for you all today. This one is for some super glittery shades from Stardust Polish. I did a review here for a lacquer from Stardust called Retro Ruby, and these are along the same lines.
I'm going to warn you ahead of time, because it took me so long to swatch and review these, most, if not all of them may not be available any longer. I still want to show them to you, be cause Drema makes some gorgeous polish and if you love these I'm sure you can find something else in her shop that strikes your fancy!
I have 7 shades to show you today and this post is super image heavy, so get ready! These all had a great formula and tried to a matte texture, but I seriously suggest putting topcoat over them to really make them sparkle and shine. I used two coats of topcoat for all of these swatches except Back Seat Bingo, which I used one coat for.
First up is a stunning deep magenta lacquer. This one is Ginned Up.
Ahh! So gorgeous! I love this color so so much. And the sparkles? WOW!
Ginned up is a deep purple toned jelly base with tons and tons of shimmer and micro glitter. It just glows with sparkle.
Can you see how much this glitters in the light?! I used two coats of Ginned up over one coat of Cult Nails Vicious for this look. I added two coats of topcoat to smooth it out and make it shine.
Next up is the only multicolored glitter in this bunch. This is Glitterati.
Ooooh Ahhhh... Isn't she lovely?
You'll definitely feel expensive wearing this stunning shade. Glitterati is a clear base loaded with multicolored micro glitter so thick that it is almost opaque in two coats.
For these shots I used two coats of Glitterati over one coat of OPI Vant To Bite My Neck? I added two thick coats of topcoat to really smooth out the glitters and make the manicure look like glass.
Here we have the only green in this lineup. This is In Cahoots!
In Cahoots is a very sheer green base with lots of green micro glitter. I strongly suggest undies for this glitter.
I used two coats of In Cahoots over my favorite green, Illamasqua Rampage. I added a couple coats of topcoat and I was shiny and ready for my close-up!
I love this next deep red lacquer. This is Classy Chassis.
How gorgeous is this baby?!
Classy Chassis is a deep red/burgundy jelly stuffed with shimmer and micro glitter.
I layered two coats of Classy Chassis over Orly Grave Mistake for this look. I added two coats of topcoat to smooth out the glitters and really make it look the best it can. Most of these shades can be layered alone for a more jelly like finish, but I liked how they look over the bases, so I went with that.
Up next is this gorgeously bright shade, The Cat's Meow!
I love this so much. The Cat's Meow is a super bright purple jelly loaded up with lots and lots of micro glitter.
I layered three coats of this lacquer by itself for these photos. You can see that there are some places that you can see nail through the lacquer. I don't really mind this, but if you do, make sure you use a similar colored undie instead of doing 3 coats alone. I added two coats of topcoat to bring out the shimmer and smooth it all down.
Another favorite from this collection is the uber sexy Razz My Berries.
Yum yum! Razz My Berries is a berry pink jelly base stuffed to overflowing with micro glitter and shimmer. And it is absolutely stunning.
I used two coats of Razz My Berries over one coat of Illamasqua Vice for these images. I added two coats of topcoat for that glass look.
Last, but most certainly not least is my favorite shade from this bunch. This blue baby is Back Seat Bingo.
I can't stand how beautiful this polish is. It is easily my favorite of these super glitters. The blue jelly base is so beautiful and deep that the micro glitters just glow from within it.
This is the one swatch that I only did one coat of topcoat with and you can tell. One more coat and it would have that same glassy look the others do. I think I was just so excited that I didn't wait for a second coat haha.
For these swatches I started with L'Oreal After Hours for undies and then layered two coats of Back Seat Bingo over the top. I finished with a single coat of shiny topcoat.
So what do you think of these micro glitter jelly hybrids from Stardust Polish? I know I love them!
Stardust Polish's shop is on vacation mode at the moment but it will reopen TONIGHT, February 2, 2015 at 7:00PM Eastern Time with a restock of core colors and new shades!!! Make sure to set your clocks!
I do want to remind you that most, if not all of these shades may no longer be available (I'm sorry!!) due to my unexpected blog hiatus, but Stardust has many beautiful shades and I highly recommend you go take a look tonight!
