Northern Star Polish - Protego Totalum Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Happy Thursday, y'all! This is a throwback polish that I have never seen in the second-hand market, but there's always hope I suppose.

Protego Totalum is cranberry red linear holographic with gold shimmer.

Glossy nail macro.

This is one of my very first indie purchases, so this makes me feel a certain kind of way. It did come with an oil rollerball, that I've since used, and it had some little art bits that I have somewhere.

I used two coats and this polish was fully opaque, it probably could have been in one coat had I swatched a little thicker. It did dry down with texture and it dried to a shine finish.

Matte nail macro.

I like this matte for just a red moment, but I really like it glossy with the holographic shining through.

Formula: Good.
Coats for Opacity: Two coats.
Ease of Dry: Quick dry.
Texture: Texture noted.
Finish: Shine.
Removal: Normal removal, no issues noted.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
