Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Stardust Review

Finally, I have the last of the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab/Black Phoenix Trading Post polishes that I purchased while I was at Dragon Con last year! This one was the most unexpected finish/application when I started swatching it. This is Stardust, a doozy that I wish was still available! (BTW, don't expect this to be my last BPAL polishes, there's a new-ish collection that's come out that I need.)

Stardust is a magenta purple jelly packed with holographic glitters.

Glossy nail macro.

Such a gorgeous jelly. I didn't know it was going to be a jelly when I bought it but I was pleasantly surprised!

I need to try this again but over white. It would also be amazing in a jelly sandwich!

Matte nail macro.

I like this matte! The glitters are a bit flattened but they still sparkle.

Formula: Good.
Coats for Opacity: Three coats, still VNL.
Ease of Dry: Quick.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
