Swatches and Review: Starry Earth Indie Polishes

Hello Sugars.
Today I've got swatches and reviews of 4 polishes by Starry Earth!

Y'all know by now that I declared this month of May as my Indie Polish Month! So, one night, while on Etsy, I found Starry Earth and I messaged Elizabeth, who's the genius behind these Indie polishes, and now, I'm glad to show you four of her beauties!

Here are some Bottle Shots!!! :-D
Starry Earth: 1937, Witty Wisdom, Pink! Blue! Pink! Blue!, Clock Strikes Twelve

Starry Earth: 1937, Witty Wisdom, Pink! Blue! Pink! Blue!, Clock Strikes Twelve


When I got these bottles in the mail, I had to hold my self from screaming. There are really so many talented ladies out there making their own polishes! The Varieties are endless, and I am truly in love with Indie polishes now.


To begin, I started with the red one called 1937.
I just Loved how it look in the bottle.
What you see below is 3 coats of 1937 alone.


Since it wasn't as opaque as I'd like it, I chose to Layer 2 coats of it over Zoya - Delilah. 

I love the holographic goodness!

To show you more of the Holo, I took a blurry picture. Lookie here!


 Next up, We have Pink Blue, Pink Blue (From her Princess Collection)
This one is obviously pink and blue micro holographic glitters packed in a milky base.

It was opaque in 2 thick coats, and I used 2 coats of my Color Club topcoat over it.
I love how milky this is. :-)


Next we have Clock Strikes Twelve (Also From her Princess collection)
It's a baby blue polish with white hexagonal and long bar glitters in it.
I Love the name of this one.. Obviously, we all know this is based off of Cinderellas dress, and story.
My camera freaked out on the baby blue and didn't want to capture this right, so I have only one decent picture of it. It's such a pretty polish IRL (In Real life) Though.
What you see here is 3 coats.


And last but not the least, we have Witty Wisdom (From her Wizard Collection).
Blue polishes are "my thing" lately, so I definitely loved this one as well. It has silver near-holographic microglitters  in it.

I was glad I swatched it last because I got to wear it for sometime before I took it off.

Please note that Witty Wisdom was meant to have large blue hexagonal glitters in it, but I think Elizabeth forgot to add some to my bottle. Lol... It wasn't a matter of them not coming out to play so, I can't fault her for that. The ones you'll be getting from her if you choose to buy would have the larger glitters in it.


My Overall Thoughts?
I love the blues!
I wished 1937 became opaque on its own, but it's OK because its sheerness makes it a versatile polish that can be layered over any color to transform it.
As it is with most Indie Polishes I've gotten so far, you have to make sure to shake each bottle very well before application.

Topcoat is necessary for all polishes because they are packed with glitters and could dry a bit rough.

I'm impressed with Starry Night Polishes and I'm looking forward to more from her.

  6. Not to crazy about clock strikes twelve. I can see what was being accomplished but I think the polish over powers the long bars. Maybe a jelly polish or even sheer maybe... But I do like the idea. :)
