Northern Star Polish

Hello everyone!!!

Today's swatches are sponsored by the amazingly talented Northern Star Polish!!! She sent me four polishes for me to swatch for you guys and a mini cuticle oil that smells amazing!!!!


To start off, the minis are 9ML!! That is so awesome because they are not as itty bitty as normal mini polishes. They have enough for a good number of wears, not just two or three like the all of the other indie ones. Which is perfect if you don't want or cannot rationalize a whole full sized bottle, but you know that you will want to wear it for  more than one or two times. The formulas were all awesome. They applied evenly and easily. I loved the colors and combinations that each had. I swatched all but Wuv, too Wuv over OPI's Skull and Glossbones because it is a great medium tone neutral gray that makes the glitters pop!


Kismets Kiss is an awesome glitter topcoat that has red micro glitter, small red and pink hexes, silver holo diamonds and grey and light pink hearts. It is beautiful on the nails but you do have to fish around for the hearts and diamonds. I think this polish would actually be easier to manage in a mini than a full sized like I recieved. I had to reallly roll the polish in my palms, Northern Polish uses Zilla beads a very large size stainless steel bead that could potentially shatter the bottle if shaken too violently. For future reference she includes three in each bottle, both mini and full sized. The beads help to kick up the sunken glitters effectively. Avoid storing this polish on its side or all the hearts and diamonds will get stuck to the walls of the glass.

I used the school glue technique so as to avoid having to deal with polish remover this time around!! Polish remover makes my cuticles all dry and yucky so I avoid it as much as possible. I also have been working in the Photography darkroom. Yay! More chemicals to wreak havoc on my hands..


Antares is a super pretty top coat polish that could hypothetically be worn on its own. It has blue green micro hexes, red and white medium sized hexes and large red star glitters. I love how it looks and the stars came out on their own with not too much fishing. If that isn't a win than I don't know what is! It applied evenly but was a bit thick because of how much glitter was packed into it. It was not a super "hungry" glitter but a few coats of top coat made it super slick and shiny.

This honestly was my favorite of the four. It contains hot pink and silver mirco glitters, silver hexes, red medium hexes,  pink and silver larger hexes. It applied beautifully, had a great jelly to it (I am wearing two coats here over a slightly tinted base coat) and the glitters were well distributed. I wanted to wear this color as long as possible so I could not do the school glue trick. The consistency  was relatively thin but not watery. I like a thinner polish so this was perfect for me. No major issues with having to fish around for the larger hexes either. If I could have chosen just one polish to receive in full sized it would have been this one!

Day Dream is a sheer purple jelly, VERY SHEER, that has purple and blue matte small square glitters, medium gold hexes and large blue matte square glitters. It applies well but the large blue squares are hard to get on the brush. I love it over Skull and Glossbones.
