I have more Northern Star Polish pretties for you guys today! I am seriously in love with this brand right now. I love the shape of the bottles, I love the uniqueness of the polishes, and the formula is fantastic on everything that I've gotten my hands on. I mean, really! I don't have a single negative thing to say.

So lets hop right into this baby and get to the swatches!
Knock Em' Red is described as "a fruity red with pink shimmer". I would say this leans a little more raspberry-strawberry-y pink than red in general, and the shimmer is blended so the polish just seems to glow from within! Its a very different color and I couldn't find a single thing in my stash that duped it! YAY! This is 2 coats of Knock Em' Red + top coat.
Next up is At First Blush - a 'feathery' glitter topper with "matte white, pink, and reddish pink slice glitter." Now, if I am being perfectly honest I was a little worried about this one. I have deliberately avoided the 'Fuzzy Coat' and 'Feather Effect' type polishes that are popular right now because...well...it looks like your ex-husbands left over shaving stubble in the sink...GROSS.
BUT, and thankfully its a BIG BUT, the glitters in At First Blush are a bit larger than the 'stubble aftermath' and I was surprised to note how much I actually LOVED this polish! It created almost a geometric kind of pattern on my nails that I really liked and was not icked out to wear at all! *WHEW* crisis averted! Applied nicely and evenly with no dabbing!
This is 2 coats of At First Blush over 2 coats of Knock Em' Red + Top Coat (if you're curious, the top coat I have been rocking lately is KBShimmer's 'Clearly On Top' fast try top coat - Available for $5 at KBShimmer!)
You can find Knock Em' Red and At First Blush (along with the rest of NSP's gorgeous creations) for $8.50 on Etsy! You can also find Northern Star Polish on Facebook. And don't forget, Northern Star Polish is 4 Free, cruelty free, gluten free, vegan friendly, made in the USA, AND Kristin includes a little thank you in every order!
