Northern Star Polish Ballad of the Mask | Polish Pickup December 2017 | Holidays Around the World

Polish Pickup time is upon us again! It is like a monthly birthday party that makes my wallet scream. But I don't care, these shinies are worth a little pain. This month I am kicking off the festivities with Norther Star Polish.

This is a microflake polish, y'all. It is filled with rose gold, pale pink, green, silver, and red sparklies...with a little holo pigment thrown on in...just in case you weren't completely blinded by the reflect here. It applies smooth and easy in two coats, and I topped it off with a layer of Seche Vite. I even made a video of the application, if you want to scroll down and see it. I love the rosy glow of this one, it makes me feel like a fresh penny!

The inspiration was this photo, a mask typical of the Venetian Carnival, a festival celebrating the beginning of Lent and occuring on Shrove Tuesday. It's a pretty new event, but people have been partying for years right before Lent. You might be familiar with a little event called Mardi Gras?

Because the sun and I aren't friends, here she is under a flash. I love how alive this polish looks!
