PolishedByLeanne 'Shooting Star' Swatch and Review


It's day 3 of  PolishedByLeane polishes and I have 'Shooting Star' to show you today, only one more to go after today!


Shooting Star is a clear based glitter topper with 3 sizes of silver holographic glitters, micro hex, mini hex and large round.

1 coat of Shooting Star with 1 coat of Seche- Direct Sunlight
I put this over Barry M Silk Orchid rather than show it over a naked nail because you can see the glitter better over a dark polish and that gives you a better idea of the glitter coverage.

The polish applied really well, the photos all show just one coat of Shooting star, like most polishes that have the larger glitter, I did have major problems getting any of it onto the brush and had to fish around a fair amount to get a piece and place it on the nail afterwards. 

In the shade
Dry time was pretty quick for a topper, although I did catch a bit with my nail after a few minutes and it was still a bit squishy around where I had placed the larger glitters. It dried smooth over everything except the larger glitters but I did top it with one coat of Seche and this was enough to smooth everything out.


It has been raining on and off all day but the sun came out long enough for me to get the holo showing through in my photos. I've never posted a blurry holo photo before but I couldn't resist this one, look at those colours.


Of course I had to add a bit of nail art to it and I wanted something that you could see the glitters through, so I went with stamping. I stamped using Barry M Silver Foil and Bundle Monster BM-602 stamping plate. I used the full image on my thumb, middle and ring fingers and then I used just one callout from the design on both the index and pinkie.


Here is a double macro of Shooting Star with and without nail art.

Clean up was a bit of a pain due to those pesky micro glitters that seem to get everywhere, pretty standard for a glitter polish and removal was surprisingly easy, again just those stubborn micro glitters that need just a tiny bit of elbow grease to remove.

Shooting Star is available on the PolishedByLeanne Etsy store at £5 for a 10ml bottle.

Edit: I forgot to mention that all PolishedByLeanne polishes are 5 free and Vegan friendly.

Which has been your favourite polish so far? What are you wearing on your nails for the weekend?
