Starlight and Sparkles · Swatch and review

Starlight and Sparkles Mythological Toppers

Well it’s almost Thanksgiving and I’m off for the next 5 days. I’d like to say I’m lounging and relaxing, but that’s not going to happen. Laundry, cleaning, playing board games with my little, and cooking will be in my future. I may also have some press samples to swatch that will make you drool, just like Starlight and Sparkles new toppers.

These polishes were sent to me free of charge for my honest review.

Phantom – a color shifting shimmer top coat with blue to purple shifting UP sibling pigment.  The color shift in Phantom isn’t as strong as in the other Mythological creatures, but it has a ghostly charm of its own despite that.  The shimmer shifts from a brilliant blue to violet to purple, and to near invisibility.  At certain angles, mostly seen in peripheral vision, there’s a barely-there blue glow – a haunting, phantasmal little glow that’s probably my favorite aspect of this topper!  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantom Song – a color shifting holographic top coat with blue to purple UP sibling pigment.  This polish joins the Mythological Song collection.  Phantom Song shifts from blue to violet to purple, and into near invisibility.  $15.00 for 15mL, $10.50 for 7.5mL.

Phantom Opal – an iridescent flake and shimmer topper with blue to purple shifting aurora flakes (large flake versions of the aurora pigments) and blue to purple UP sibling pigment, which shifts from blue to violet to purple, and into near invisibility.  This polish joins the Mythological Opal collection.  $16.00 for 15mL, $11.00 for 7.5mL.

The next polishes are all being released under the Phantasmal collection, but some will also be cross-posted (as noted in the descriptions here) to other Mythological collections on the Starlight and Sparkles website.  Phantom pigment is a little shy on its own (that’s why there’s no Phantom Night!), but it produces fascinating effects with other UP-type pigments!  

I adore Phantasmal Phoenix, Phantasmal Dragon, Phantasmal Unicorn, and Phantasmal Kelpie – the way the pigments sometimes clash and sometimes appear to almost blend, the way the shift changes from the non-Phantasmal topper or almost seems the same depending on light and angle… They’re so interesting to watch!

Phantasmal Phoenix – a blend of Phantom and Phoenix, this combines red to green UP pigment and blue to purple UP sibling pigment.  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Dragon – a blend of Phantom and Dragon, this combines gold to green UP sibling pigment and blue to purple UP sibling pigment.  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.

Phantasmal Unicorn – a blend of Phantom and Unicorn, this combines green to blue UP sibling pigment and blue to purple UP sibling pigment.  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Kelpie – a blend of Phantom and Kelpie, this combines teal to violet UP sibling pigment and blue to purple UP sibling pigment.  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Chimera – a color shifting top coat made by combining five Mythological pigments (Phoenix, Dragon, Unicorn, Kelpie, and Phantom).  The effect isn’t the obvious transition of a single pigment alone, but has more of a “points of light” effect.  Phantasmal Chimera is cooler in tone than Chimera.  $13.00 for 15mL, $9.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Chimera Song – a color shifting holographic top coat made with a combination of five Mythological pigments (Phoenix, Dragon, Unicorn, Kelpie, and Phantom).  The effect isn’t the obvious transition of a single pigment alone, but has more of a “points of light” effect.  Phantasmal Chimera Song is cooler in tone than Chimera Song.  Part of the Phantasmal collection, this polish will also be added to the Mythological Song collection.  $15.00 for 15mL, $10.50 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Chimera Opal – an iridescent flake and shimmer topper with a blend of the four colors of aurora flakes (large flake versions of the aurora pigments) and the UP and UP sibling pigments used in Phoenix Opal, Dragon Opal, Unicorn Opal, Kelpie Opal, and Phantom Opal.  Phantasmal Chimera Opal is cooler in tone than Chimera Opal.  Part of the Phantasmal collection, this polish will also be added to the Mythological Opal collection.  $16.00 for 15mL, $11.00 for 7.5mL.  

Phantasmal Chimera Night – a cool black jelly base with a blend of five Mythological pigments (Phoenix, Dragon, Unicorn, Kelpie, and Phantom).  The effect isn’t the obvious transition of a single pigment alone, but has more of a “points of light” effect.  Phantasmal Chimera Night’s shimmer is cooler in tone than Chimera Night’s.  Part of the Phantasmal collection, this polish will also be added to the Mythological Night collection.  $15.00 for 15mL, $10.50 for 7.5mL.

Wow, am I right? These toppers are incredible!

Formula is fantastic, application is excellent, removal is easy, no texture.

All these and more are available now at Starlight and Sparkles.

Thanks for reading!
