Northern Star Polish’s “Pumpkinlicious”

Good evening all, and welcome to Pint & Polish!

Today we have Northern Star Polish’s “Pumpkinlicious,” which I bought a 5mL miniature bottle of on etsy for $3.75 and $3 S&H. It arrived on time from Northern Star and was packaged in bubble wrap and a bubble mailer, no problems at all.

The picture above is of three coats of Northern Star Polish’s “Pumpkinlicious” over a coat of Milani’s “Black Swift,” with several coats of OPI’s topcoat over it. I’d love to get a better top coat so it didn’t take so many layers! This glitter ate topcoats like a fat kid eating Twinkies. (Do fat kids all really like Twinkies, actually, or is that just a stereotype? I like cake, personally. And fried Twinkies.)

This was my first glitter polish ever, and it was a little more difficult to work with than I had hoped it would be, but I attribute that entirely to user error and not to low quality of the polish. Regardless, it was a learning experience, and I’m beautifully pleased with the results! “Pumpkinlicious” is, according to the seller, “burnt orange, gold holographic, and green hexes in a clear base” and it is gorgeous. The orange is the primary color showing through, while the hex glitters make a bold statement and add extra visual interest. The green hexes are not holographic, but the gold ones are, and there’s an additional tiny amount of fine holographic glitters that shine rainbows in the right light.

In short, I love it on top of black, and I can’t wait to give it a try over OPI’s Jade is the New Black!

 

Next time, I’ll be reviewing Rogue Brewery’s Mom Hefeweizen, and if it gets here in time, Darling Diva Polish’s “Slutty Pumpkin!” See y’all soon!
