NORTHERN STAR POLISH SWATCH & REVIEW

Good afternoon ladies! (and gents, if you're there too :P). 
Today I have some beautiful new polishes to share with you from Northern Star Polish! :)

Just a little back story on Northern Star Polish, it was started by a girl name Kristin. She opened her shop in March of 2012 and all of her polishes are hand mixed and the Big 4 free :) She has worldwide shipping with a flat rate of $3, plus free shipping for orders over $50! How awesome is that!? I totally envy people that start small businesses :) I think it's pretty dang kewl! :P

So now on to the polishes! I am new to this brand and I have to say I am so impressed! These polishes are from her summer collection (which is being released tomorrow, June 15th) and if I were to rate the whole collection I think I would totally give her 5/5 :P

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**


Night Swimming, Electric Lime, Beach Baby & Burning Embers 




It has been quite a long time since I have worn a red polish...it's not my go-to color, plus I prefer other colors more...but this one is awesome! 

Burning Embers, it's a beautiful red holo with red micro glitters. It was completely opaque in 2 coats, although one coat was pretty opaque by itself, plus the formula is awesome! It applied so even and so smooth that I didn't even use a topcoat.




Beach Baby is my absolute favorite of the 4 polishes! I have no idea why, but I have been so attracted to orange polishes as of late...then you add gold shimmers!? I was in heaven with this polish! I applied 3 coats and was pleasantly surprised that it seemed to dry matte.




Don't you just love the brightness of this polish! This is Electric Lime and it is just that! Electric! :P I love the way the extra colored glitters makes this polish pop! :D It's so fun and eye catching! 2 coats was perfect for full opaqueness and I did apply one top coat over this polish just to smooth over all of the glitters.




And last up, Night Swimming...you all know I love my blues, and I have to admit that I have a lot :P ...but I do not have one like this! The shade of this blue is to die for...but one thing I had a hard time catching in the photos is the pink/purple shimmer! In the right lighting the shimmer really shines and makes this polish extra gorgeous! Plus this one also dries matte :) HEAVEN!!

I love these polishes!! And also the cuticle oil :) The one thing that I noticed right off the bat with the cuticle oil is that it doesn't have a strong smell (which is nice) and it doesn't leave my fingers feeling greasy like some other cuticle oils I have tried. It applies with a roller ball, and most cuticle oils I've tried with a roller ball dispense a lot of liquid when you apply it to  your fingers, but this one didn't, which I actually loved because I had just the right amount of oil on each cuticle! Well done Kristin!

If you would like to purchase any of these polishes, or just check out more, you can do so here at Kristin's shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/NorthernStarPolish (it is currently down, but will re-open tomorrow around 12, central time).
