ATTENTION! Due to the extreme heat we are experiencing in my area, these polishes seem to be temporarily overheating. When they arrive to you, they may not change color initially. So far everyone who experienced this, has let me know that the next day, the polish seemed fine. I think it just needs a day to acclimate to room temperature. I am keeping an eye on this situation to make sure it doesn't worsen. I know it will only be getting hotter here in Nashville through July and August. I'm hoping to not have to suspend sales of thermal polish during the summer, but I don't want to sell products that don't work!
As long as I can remember I've been in love with the aurora borealis. When I was a kid I had a VHS tape of a nova special about it that I would just watch over and over again. I was so enamored by it. Most of the lights appear as purple and green whisps in the sky. I've never seen them in person, but I definitely plan to in my life time!! This polish reminds me of those lights. I've added some holographic sparkle to this polish as well so that you can also light up the day with these nails!
I love thermal polish! When cold this polish is a gorgeous purple. When warm it turns a very nice teal. Do keep in mind that all thermal changes can differ a bit with any polish depending on all sorts of factor including but not limited to temperature, climate, weather, number of layers used etc.
This polish will be shipped in 11mL or 15mL bottles. It's time consuming and expensive for me to make so it costs just a bit more than my normal polishes. You can see these bottles vs the 15mL ones in the photos above. Please keep in mind that all thermal pigment breaks down over time. This polish has a shelf life of 6 months to one year. It could last longer, some bottles definitely have. For longevity I recommend keeping your Northern Lights someplace not prone to temperature and light/darkness fluctuations. The best way to use Northern Lights is often! Paint those nails!! :D Please keep this in mind when choosing your bottle size.
This polish is Vegan!
This polish applies best in 2-3 thin layers with a generous layer of a glossy top coat.

I accept major credit cards and paypal! Payment is due at time of checkout. If you pay with an e-check via paypal, funds must clear before Etsy will allow me to print your shipping label. Sometimes this takes a couple of days, but it can take up to a week.
Current turn around time is listed generally at the top of my page and in the shipping information on the listings. Turn around time depends on current order volume and how busy my day job is. All items are hand made by me.
I drop my packages directly at the main post office and my packages usually only take 2-4 days to arrive to you within the US. Please note that shipping to other countries can take 1 to as long as 3 weeks due to international shipping time/customs etc. These things are out of my hands, but your tracking number will keep you updated!
I HATE that I currently have to charge so much for shipping internationally. Please note that I am actually charging you several dollars LESS than what I actually pay for the labels only because I HATE having to make you pay so much and want to give you a break. USPS raised rates this year and I do realize that the shipping costs more than the bottle of polish, but please realize that I'm paying even more for that label.
Let me know if you need a faster shipping method and we can work something out.
I would like everyone to be happy with their purchases. If your item arrives damaged, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Take a photo of the damage and send it to me. I will replace your item.
