Hello hello! I had so many blog plans for this weekend, but other projects and a lot of weekend running around got in the way. I meant to have this post up last night as well – but again, things just don’t go as planned. So tonight I have the Starlight Polish Mythological Gems to share with you

I know these all look alike above – but if you are familiar with the Starlight Polish Mythological collection – you already know why. I have covered previous releases before, so this isn’t entirely new to my blog. If you aren’t aware – the Mythological line by Starlight Polish is kind of an ever evolving line.  I think some of the first I received were just top coats with the various color shifting shimmers added in and you could go crazy and add them over any polish you’d like (you still can too). Then came black and green jelly bases to add a little more oomph and less layering to the Mythological line, plus I believe the addition of another Mythological creature as an inspiration.

Now Starlight Polish has gone a step further and brought out the Mythological Gems. Now 4 of the shifting shimmers are in 3 more jelly bases – dark red base (Garnet), chocolate brown base (Dravite) and a blue base (sheerer medium blue)

We’ll look at the 12 new additions, and to circle back to why the above collage looks repetitive – you’ll see each of the shimmers in their new jelly base colors. At first glance they all do look very similar, but upon closer inspection – there are slight differences with the color shift. You can grab the shift that you love or collect em all.

These are already released because, surprise surprise, I’m running late with yet another review. However, Starlight Polish keeps a lot of stock on hand so these are still available.

We’re going to look at the 4 different shimmer groups in each base. The shimmers involved are Phoenix, Dragon, Unicorn and Kelpie.

For all of my photos I only did 2 coats. 3 are recommended for more opacity, but I find with my lighting set up the shimmers and shift shines through better with 2 coats.

Starlight Polish Mythological Gems

It’s been really fun watching the Starlight Polish Mythological line evolve and grow to appeal to even more of an audience and I cannot wait to see what she does next. I would love to see these shifty shimmers in a stunning red-violet base or another purple type base of some sort.

Of the new “Gem” additions – the Kyanite shades are the sheerest. I show them in 2 coats but 3 or 4 would be needed for a closer to, if not fully opaque look. The Garnet and Dravite shades are close to full coverage in 2, so I do think a third would have reached that fully opaque look.

As I mentioned, you can also find these shimmers as top coats from the original line of Mythological Creatures, or you can find them in green or black bases as well. There are also a few with iridescent glitters too if you like even more oomph. These aren’t the only shimmer shifts available either – there is also Chimera which is a newer shimmer addition (added I believe towards the end of last year. It’s not yet available in these bases.
