Swatch: Northern Star Polish Shark Bite

The polish shown in this post was provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

When I first moved to Minnesota I looked up which indie polish brands were local to Minnesota. I saw Northern Star Polish but to my disappointment, they were on hiatus at the time. I am happy to say that they’re back! They made their return a couple of months ago and have been participating in the monthly Polish Pickup initiative. I was over the moon when Kristin, the maker behind Northern Star, approached me about swatching this month’s polish. So, here is my first ever Northern Star polish – Shark Bite!

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Northern Star Polish Shark BiteEach month, Polish Pickup has a theme and multiple makers create their own polish to that theme. This month’s theme is Cocktails & Mocktails and Northern Star has chosen the brightly coloured Shark Bite as their inspiration. Like the drink, it’s a teal blue with a splash of red!

Each bottle also comes with a cute shark candy bracelet.

Kristin has assured me she’ll be releasing more new polishes within the next few months. Also – how great is that holographic label on the bottle?
