This is definitely my new favourite nail polish. I have had this pretty much since the moment Models Own brought out the Wonderland Collection as I immediately knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it. I used to avoid using glitter polishes as I hated how much of a pain they were to remove - I still hate how much of a pain they are to remove, but the prettiness of them outweighs that!
Anyway so Northern Lights is a pink coloured, holographic glitter polish. The glitter particles are all the same, small size. I actually thought this would be quite a sheer coverage, and imagined it being almost a topcoat, but in fact it's quite dense, and I think it would cover most of your base colour if you were to use it as a topcoat!
Out of focus shot so you can see all the colours!
I think this polish is absolutely stunning. The swatches above show 3 coats, which is perfect for full opacity. In natural light, it just looks like a simple pink glitter which is lovely, but it really comes to life in the sunlight. When the sun hits it, you get a whole rainbow of colours!
As is usual with Models Own, the polish is really good quality and has a nice consistency. I find the Models Own glitters have a thicker consistency than their normal polishes, but they are by no means difficult to work with. This also dries really quickly as well which is a bonus!
If you prefer a smooth finish it does take around 2 coats of topcoat to do so, and with a topcoat I find there is minimal chipping, even after a few days. I think this wears really well for a glitter polish.
The only bad thing I can find to say about this is that it STINKS. It smells like nail polish (obv) but it's really, really strong! I find this with all Models Own polishes, I don't know why, but even that doesn't put me off them!
