Aurora Nail Lacquer | Polish Con Exclusives

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con VIP shade - Aurora Mani-apolis

Hi everyone!

I have some more Polish Con swatches for you. In today’s post I have the VIP and exclusive shades from Aurora Nail Lacquer. This was my first experience with Aurora and after trying these polishes, I am keen to see what else they have to offer! These two shades also go really well together so if you get the VIP shade in your bag, you’ll want to check out the exclusive! Let’s start off with the VIP shade. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con VIP shade - Aurora Mani-apolis headerThis is Aurora Mani-apolis. Isn’t that a fun name? When I put this polish on my nails, it made me think of a fairy tale – it is such an ethereal shade.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con VIP shade - Aurora Mani-apolisMani-apolis is a light blue to purple shifting duochrome with a holographic finish. It is described as color shifting from blue to purple with a touch of holo and rainbow glitter. Here I am showing two coats with top coat. The formula was great and easy to work with.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con VIP shade - Aurora Mani-apolisThe duochrome effect of Mani-apolis is intended to represent the twin cities, Minneapolis and St Paul. I thought that was a really cool inspiration. I’ve been loving all of the Minnesota inspirations all of the brands have been coming up with for their Polish Con exclusive and VIP polishes!

Mani-sota should look good over other shades as well – I think it’ll go with pretty much any blue, some purples, maybe nudes… and I’m sure there will be a few surprising colour combinations you can come up with, too.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusive shade - Aurora Mani-sotaAs you can see, this is quite a dense glitter, so one coat is plenty for it to be used as a topper. The official description is a glitter topper packed with color shifting blue to purple color and galaxy holo glitter. It is made to be worn either on its own, or over another colour.
