Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I have the Moonflower Polish for November’s Polish Pickup to share with you. November’s theme is Badass Women and Nadia chose one of my personal favourites: Carrie Fischer as Leia Organa.

Rather than choosing a more vulnerable representation of Leia like her iconic gold bikini, Nadia wanted to represent her at her strongest: as General Organa, leader of the Resistance in The Last Jedi.

The General is a dark, dusty blue with red shimmer and a splash of holo. The official description is a bluish grey creme base with red to gold colour shifting aurora shimmers and scattered holo.

For these swatches, I used two coats of The General plus top coat. It dries semi-matte so you’ll want a top coat for shine. The formula was great, easy to apply and opaque.

You can just about see a little of the shimmer peeking out there!

Of course, Moonflower Polish is known for its great stamping polishes, so I tested this out in some stamping as well.

As you can see, The General stamps perfectly! I really liked this colour combination and was looking at my nails all day.

To get this look, I started with a base of Northern Star Polish I’ve Heard it Both Ways and then stamped using The General and BeautyBigBang plate XL-011.

The General makes a kind of unofficial duo with last month’s polish, which was inspired by Star Wars villian Thrawn, The Grand Admiral:

There you see The General stamped with The Grand Admiral. As you can see, they’re gorgeous together! I stamped that with the same plate, BeautyBigBang XL-011.

Back to stamping using The General: This is a gorgeous, wintry shade. Deep, dusty blue that reads almost like a stormy grey sometimes when it’s stamped.

Look at how crisply it stamps! I just love it.
