When they arrive to you, thermals may not want to change color initially. Sometimes they need a day to acclimate to room temperature.
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!
My polishes are 10 free & cruelty free meaning they are formulated without: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, phthalates, fragrances.
They generally apply best with 2-3 thin layers topped with a fast dry top coat.
I do my best to accurately represent the colors of my polishes in their photos, however, there may be some differences in the items dues to screen brightness etc. Photos are never altered or filtered to change the colors unless it is needed to more accurately showcase harder to photograph colors. Every bottle is carefully hand-mixed and the best effort is given to consistency of formulas, though some color and distribution of glitters may vary slightly from bottle to bottle. Shake well to help with any settling that may occur during shipping.
For an easy way to remove glitter heavy polishes try googling the "foil method".

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.

I bought Northern Lights for my 9 year old as a stocking stuffer, but ended up caving and giving it to her early. She thought it was the absolute coolest thing and was so excited for me to paint her nails. Shipping was reasonably quick and customer service was great. The polish I bought came with a little sample polish, a couple pieces of candy, and a little “Happy Holidays” card. I definitely recommend this product and shop and have my eye on a couple other colors for future purchase!
