Ello ello lovelies! Hows tricks? Okay its official, I have had it with this weather! I've heard of April showers yes, but April snow blizzards? Meh. I think I seriously need to consider relocating to a warmer climate ;)
Whilst popping in to Boots the other day I found myself pausing at the Revlon counter when my eye caught these Nail Art Moon Candy Polishes as well as other interesting looking new nail art collections. I was surprised because I had no idea that these had come to the UK at last! I remember seeing them on blogs a while back, loving the look of them & was fortunate enough to receive a couple from a lovely friend in the US in a polish swap. The Moon Candy Collection consists of duo sets including a crème base colour & a holographic shard glitter topcoat that has a bit of a flakie feel to it. Today I have one of the Moon Candy's to share with you, Orbit...
Orbit is a deep dark purple crème with the holographic glitter shards being in a purple tinted base. The consistency of the purple crème is quite thick, pretty much a one coater! Unfortunately though my Moon Candy's suffered some leaking when I received my package (silly mail people!) & I think this has made the consistency even more gloopy! However it applied okay & I found one coat to be sufficient.
I applied two coats of the holographic glitter on top of the purple crème to get enough coverage & I love the effect, definitely very cosmic! The shards shimmer most prettily & weren't too troublesome, however I think I will go for two thick coats of topcoat next time instead of the one to make the surface a bit more smoother. :)
I find the Moon Candy's a lovely & interesting collection & I do like my glitters ;) I really want to try the other shade I have, Cosmic, but its become SO gloopy I fear it may be beyond saving *wails* However I'll hunt me down some nail polish thinner & see of that can salvage it :) I also picked up one of the new Revlon Nail Art Expressionist duos which I've been having a play around with & will share with you also soon!
The Revlon Nail Art duo's retail for £7.99 & are available to purchase from Boots. Have you tried these nail art duos from Revlon? Thanks for reading lovelies!
Lotsa love to ya!
