Northern Star Swatch and Review

Today on the blog I am showing 2 polishes and a cuticle oil from Northern Star Polish. These items were sent to me for my honest review and I am very excited to show them to you today! All three of these are available to buy on the Northern Star Etsy page!

First up is a darker color which I would recommend wearing if you are feeling a bit vampy.

This is Choco Love. Choco Love is a milk chocolate colored polish with multi colored flake glitter finish. I actually found it to also give off a purplish tint to it. Do you see it?

Choco Love is a Vegan and Cruelty Free polish. It is also a 4- Free formula! (Formaldehyde,formaldehyde resin, toluene, & DBP free)

This look was achieved with 2 thin coats. Northern Star Polish has a wider brush, so if you are like me and are used to thinner brushes you may have to be a little bit careful when applying. It goes on very well though and a wider brush = less brush strokes!

Next up is a color which is a lot less vampy. :)

This is Carnivale. Carnivale is a bright pink polish with linear holographic finish. (OMGGGG HOLO!!!) I was not able to snag some sun shots because the sun hid due to weather.

I am in love with this polish. The brush is also a wider brush but I found it went on very well (I had practice with Choco Love!) I only needed to use 2 thin coats to achieve this look.

I used flash to help show the holo (OMG HOLO!!) If there is sun tomorrow I'll post a picture on my Facebook page. :)

Isn't it gorgeous? I am definitely going to check out some of the other Northern Star holos!

The last thing that was sent for me to review was a Sweet Orange scented cuticle oil. It smells delicious!

I have been putting this cuticle oil on twice a day and I am really starting to notice a difference in my cuticles. :)

The size is so convenient! Just like the listing says: you can just pop it right into your purse and go!

Did I mention that it smells delicious? Even Nova agrees!

The cuticle balm is also available in different smells and unscented:

- Green Tea
- Mintastic peppermint marshmellow vanilla
- Doctor Yum vanilla mus
- Cranberry

They are also only $3 so why not buy them all? :)

Choco Love and Carnivale are available for purchase for only $8.50 each.
