Northern Star Polish : Halloween Collection, swatches and review (PIC HEAVY!)

Hi, my darlings! Is it as hot where you are as it is in New York City? It's almost September and it's over 90 degrees today!! I can't believe it!! Fall is my favorite time of year and I'm impatient to have it start already!

Now, speaking of Fall, I know Halloween is just a short 6 weeks away and many of you LOVE Halloween! Me? I'm not a huge, huge fan of it but I always bust out my sexy red dress and devil's horns whenever the opportunity arises! =P

Halloween also means new collections from our favorite indie makers and today I have the entire collection from Northern Star Polish up for review! This collection will be released...

Before I show you actual swatches, here's a pic of Northern Star's new packaging! I know Kristin was super excited about the new boxes so I had to show them to you all too! Isn't it cute?? =)

First up, I have for you Bella Morte--a gorgeous blood-red jelly polish with black flakies and matte red glitter. The application on this was perfect, smooth and even and I used 3 coats for the swatches below, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl. Being a jelly, it is slightly sheer so generous coats or layering is advisable--however, the dry time between coats was great! Isn't this a perfect polish for the aspiring vampire on Halloween? =)

Next, I have another jelly polish for you--Macabre Delight is a blurple jelly polish with neon green and purple glitter in various shapes and sizes. The application on this, again, was great--no fishing for glitter! I used 4 coats for the swatches below, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl   This polish is really quite sheer and next time, I'm definitely gonna layer it over a dark purple creme. I love, love the hint of shimmer that runs through this polish!

Third from this collection is my favorite! Phantasmagoric is a beautiful teal jelly with a pink-violet-blue color shift! The application and formula for this was fabulous and I used 3 coats for the swatches below, except for my pinky finger where I used 1 coat over 2 coats of Revlon Royal. I absolutely love the way this looks and I bet it would look great layered over other cremes too!

Next up, I have for you Twisted Treat-- a black creme with a coppery-orange shimmer. No complaints about the application and this is just 2 coats in the swatches below! This showed almost a rich dark chocolate brown on me and it's super pretty!

Last but definitely not the least, I have Pumpkinlicious, a clear glitter topcoat with burnt orange, gold and green glitters that's being re-released to complete this collection. I had no issues with this and the glitters came out easily for me! I used 1 generous coat over Twisted Treat on all my nails, except for the ring finger where I used 2 generous coats. Isn't this just perfect for Fall?

With flash!

So there you have it--the entire Halloween collection from Northern Star polish! This collection will be released on Sunday, September 15th at noon CST and you can find them HERE for the price of $8.50 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle or $5.50 for a fairly large 0.3 oz mini bottle!
