Indie Friday!: Northern Star Polish - Practically Purple + Lenore + Drop Your Sword

Hello lovelies!

I'm back with my Indie Friday post! I'll be wrapping up my Northern Star Polish collection today.

Let's get onto the nails!

This first polish is called Practically Purple!

This is 1 coat of Practically Purple over 2 coats of China Glaze's For Audrey. Practically Purple is a clear based glitter topper filled with matte, purple and black hex glitters of various sizes. The formula on this was great and the glitter payoff is fantastic!

I really like this topper! The limited color palate of the glitters is interesting and I always love black, matte glitters. I'm loving this pairing of polishes together too.

Next up is Lenore!

I'm showing you guys 1 coat of Lenore over 2 coats of Zoya's Thandie. This polish is filled with so many different glitters including glitter shards. Lenore's formula was pretty thick and adding thinner didn't really help but I found dabbing the glitters on worked out fine.

The mix of glitters in this polish is really nice and I don't own many polishes with shards so this is unique for me! Also, the royal blue colored shards are beautiful. I love that color!

Last up is Drop Your Sword!

Drop Your Sword is a black jelly polish filled with silver hex glitters and various colored micro glitters. This is 3 coats on its own! The polish is easy to apply and builds up nicely without a base. No fishing required either!

Drop Your Sword is a favorite of mine and is probably one of the best black based jelly polish I own. I've showed it on the blog before for one of my Golden Oldie Thursdays posts. This is a great polish!

Sadly, none of these polishes are available to buy but keep your eye out in blog sales. I also saw some swatches from the upcoming summer collection and the polishes look awesome! Make sure to keep up with this indie. Here are some links:
