This listing is for a full size Aurora Top Coat set, a quartet of iridescent glitter top coats, meant for layering over other polishes. The four Aurora Top Coats are named after planetary auroras. You'll receive a 15mL bottle of each color.
Aurora Australis is named after the Southern Lights, and shifts from orange through gold and green. Pictures of the Southern Lights frequently show beautiful shades of red, orange, yellow, and green.
Aurora Borealis is named after the Northern Lights, and shifts from cool green through turquoise and blue. Pictures of the Northern Lights frequently show shades ranging from bright green through violet, but the few times I’ve glimpsed it myself, it’s been shades of blue and green.
Venusian Aurora is named after Venus’s diffuse aurora effect (not concentrated at the poles, as Venus lacks magnetic poles), which is believed to be caused by solar flares, and looks green from Earth. Venusian Aurora shifts from cool green through warm green and gold.
Jovian Aurora is named after the intense auroras of Jupiter, and the color choice inspired by images of Jupiter’s northern aurora from the Hubble in ultraviolet and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. Jovian Aurora shifts from turquoise to light blue through violet.

The last picture shows what the 15mL bottles will look like. This listing is for a quartet of 15mL bottles, but there is a smaller, 5mL set available in another listing. Each polish is also available individually, in 5mL and 15mL sizes.
