I have a shiny Starmie and it has a nature that boosts its spdef but lowers its SpAtk. It has a almost all perfect ivs including SpAtk. It is also holding a Life Orb. Can I still make this Pokémon work competitively?

You can, but it's much more difficult.

Yes. It will still work in competitive. But, it will be weaker than it would be if it were to have a good nature and max IVs. As long as you can get a good moveset and EVs, it will still work. You might have a better time training a non shiny starmie, therefore you can get better IVs/Natures.
