Starry Earth ! and Faerie Fate Review & Swatches

Hey everyone! I know I've been gone for a little bit  and I truly apologize for my absence. I had some personal problems come up and blogging wasn't the first thing on my mind. I feel really bad that I wasn't able to get this posted on Monday. :( But I'm here now and ready to show everyone some awesome polishes! :) 

! is described as a purple shimmer jelly base with matte purple, tiny blue bars and micro purple glitter. I used 2 coats with no top coat. 
I was a little afraid when I saw this polish that the glitters wouldn't work well with the base, but I'm happy to report they do work great together! The blue glitters really pop nicely and from starring at my nails for quiet some time even though some of the bar glitters appear curling they aren't. Formula was great; I didn't need to fish for any glitters, it had an average dry time and dried pretty smooth with out a top coat. I love the reason Elizabeth, the creator of Starry Earth, named this polish "!", because she loves using exclamation points. To which I concur! ;)
Faerie Fate is a light pink/lavender with holo shimmer. My index and ring nail are 3 coats over bare nail and my middle and pinky nail are 1 coat over 2 coats of Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris. All nails have no top coat.
Faerie Fate is magical by it's self, but even more amazing over black! Without a top coat it has a semi-matte finish, though you really can't tell because of all the sparkliness. :P Formula was perfection and I think you could even get away with 2 thicker coats over bare nail if you wanted to. If I was more talented in nail art, Faerie Fate would make the perfect base color to some awesome galaxy nails. ;)
