Starry Earths Mermaid Elixir & 70% Chance Of Rain

I was very privileged the other day to receive an AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING package from the lovely  Elizabeth at Starry Earth. I am going to start by showing you two, but stay tuned over the next couple days for the rest of the polishes including a brand new sneak peak at an upcoming Halloween special!


These two polishes are possibly the most amazing pastels I own. And by possibly, I mean these are the two MOST AMAZING pastel polishes I own. They are beyond words. Mermaid Elixir and 70% Chance Of Rain are both pastel polishes that are more or less shimmers. But not just any shimmers. These polishes have shimmers that are made up of tiny holographic glitter. I am hesitant to call it holographic glitter however because it is so fine that it just shows up as the most AMAZING shimmer ever. 



"70% Chance of Rain is a stormy grey blue shimmer polish. It has tiny (and I mean tiny) silver holo glitters. It shimmers without being overpowering. It's a great polish if you like glitter but don't want it to be in your face glitter!" What more is there to really say about this than that? When she says the holographic glitter is tiny, she really means it. It really is more like a holographic shimmer. I would never in a million years consider this a glitter polish personally, but it is so far elevated from a normal shimmer I am unsure what I SHOULD call it. Stunning. Beautiful. My favourite light blue I own. So much so that I am worried about picking up my bottle of Chanel Skyline later this week as I doubt it will be as nice as this one. And yes. I am 100% serious in that. Opaque in two coats, its just perfect.



"Mermaid Elixir is a light green shimmering polish. It has tiny (and I mean tiny) silver holo glitters. It shimmers without being overpowering. It's a great polish if you like glitter but don't want it to be in your face glitter!". This basically is the twin sister of 70% Chance Of Rain. It is basically the green version of the above one. Totally stunning,

One coat of each polish
