Northern Star Polish July 2017 Polish Pickup Exclusive Swatches and Review: Shark Bite

Northern Star Polish Shark Bite (2 coats) $9

Hi guys! Long time, no blog. Guess who has jet lag? San Francisco was least as much as I got to see of it. They say you need 24 hours per time zone change to readjust and I'm right in the middle of it. Tonight I have another exclusive polish from Polish Pickup which I mentioned a couple weeks ago. If you need a little refresher on how it works, follow the link here for more information. Northern Star Polish is run by Kristen and she's been making polish for years. Last year she took a long hiatus and this is her way of getting back into the polish game. She made some of my favorite cuticle oils, but it doesn't look like she's making those yet. On the bright side, Northern Star Polish is releasing another polish for September's Polish Pickup and you can see that here

I know, I know, Shark Bite isn't for sale anymore, but at least you can see a pretty swatch and learn a bit more for the pre-order which goes from 9/1-9/4. It's a teal blue cream base with fuchsia microglitter and aqua blue shimmer. It's extremely saturated, but I didn't have any issues with staining. That said, this is the type of color that may stain so don't forget your base coat! The formula was just perfect, and I needed just 2 coats for full coverage. Even with the microglitter, it does not dry textured so you can use pretty much any top coat you have around. This is supposed to be named after a drink, but I've never heard of a Shark Bite. Please tell me I'm not the only one! 

Obviously this has everything I love in a polish. Saturated color? Check. Contrasting shimmer/microglitter? Check. Good formula? Check. I'll definitely be purchasing a few polishes from this month's Polish Pickup and there's a good chance I'll get Take a Bite from Northern Star Polish. Again, you can learn more about the Polish Pickup on their Facebook page and website and the pre-order begins on 9/1 with flat-rate shipping of just $3.
