Star Kin Nail Polish Swatch Spam!

Purchased by me/Gifted

Hey lovelies,

You know what I haven't done in way too long? A nail polish swatch spam post! Let's put that right now with one of my favourite brands of all time, Star Kin :) My index nail is sadly letting down the team at the moment so these are older swatches... perhaps they'll shame my index nail into growing faster?

Pink of Spades is a grey crelly packed with different shades of matte pink glitter and of course the clincher, bright pink spades! Ami warned me that this one might lead me a merry chase fishing for glitter, but I actually didn't have any trouble at all, landing three spades on one nail with no fishing required.

Found the perfect way to get thermals to work and enjoy a cheeky tipple :D

Purks of the Job is a pink to lavender thermal with a strong effect and perfect gradient. The glitter mix is pastel and gorgeous, containing blue and aqua circles, pink hexes and squares, purple hexes and silver holo. I did find the glitter content to be a bit dense, making the polish a little thick overall, but nothing thin coats and a generous helping of topcoat can't fix. I'm super in love with Purks of the Job!

Cotton is a very cute and soft pale blue flecked with royal blue and holo shimmer. It is a little streaky and would fare better over a ridge filling base coat; you can see in the swatches that there are some bald patches where my ridges are.

Cravin Mad is a bit of a party in a bottle! Very easy to work with, no dabbing required, just a whole lot of fun.

Magic is one of Ami's cult favourite shades and yet it slipped under my radar for an embarassingly long time. Rest assured that I saw the error of my ways as soon as I put it on my nails. Look at it. LOOK AT IT. It's just perfect. A little sheer, but this lets you easily create a jelly sandwich in a bottle effect and it builds up nicely. No fishing or dabbing needed.

I want my nails to be this length again *glares at nails*. Thparkly is a ridiculously gorgeous orchid glassfleck with hints of gold and copper and a smooth buildable formula. I don't know how Ami does it. Sometimes our conversations seem to go like this:



But guys, SHE IS ACTUALLY A WIZARD. Of polish.

Eva is a sheer purple jelly filled with green and holo glitter and was named after Peacock Pie's cat Eva. It took me a while to decide on undies that would co-ordinate with both the purple tint and the magical glitter mix but I finally found it in Purple Effect. A match made in heaven!


Star Kin has been on hiatus for a bit but Ami has posted a teaser for her return on the Every Sensory and Star Kin Facebook page. I'm so excited! My Star Kin stash needs some new friends! :D
