Revlon Moon Candy Nail Polish

August 11, 2013

As with makeup, I also (usually) prefer nude and neutral colors on my nails too; with the exception of bright corals and pinks during summertime.  It’s only recently that I started to venture out and try  some different finishes, textures and colors.

When I came across these Revlon Moon Candy nail polish range, I was instantly sold! There are many color combinations to choose from but the two I’m featuring on this post caught my attention the most.  It’s a 2-step system: the base color and the glitter on top…but it’s not just regular glitter which sets these polishes apart from the rest.  The glitter is almost like multi-dimensional cellophane broken into different shape and size pieces.  As soon as you apply it over the base color, it gives the effect of scattered stars or the galaxy.  Very hard to explain so let me show you ;)

I got the colors Galactic – which I’m wearing in the pics; and Super Nova – which my sister was kind enough to lend me her nails

This particular color combo features a navy blue base polish which applies quite opaque and covers well with first coat.  The glitter features everything from light green, turqoise, navy blue and almost purple/blue hues – changes in different lights.

The glitter part was a little bit tricky to apply, only cos I wanted the particles to be distributed evenly.  I pushed some of the pieces into position with the brush.  You can adjust the amount of glitter depending on your preference.

Super Nova – as seen here on my sister’s nails, has a dark gray base color, which is again opaque enough to give pretty good coverage with one coat.  The glitter features shades of gold, light green, rose gold and soft copper – it shimmers beautifully!

I cannot wait to use the glitter part of this color over some nude nail polish. I think it would really take the look to a different level.

The only con about this range of nail polish is the finish.  Even though I was very careful in applying the glitter – (as there are some chunky pieces), and I used a top coat over it, it still feels a bit rough and gritty.  However, because I can’t stop looking at my nails, I’m happy to overlook that detail :)

And below is the full Revlon Moon Drops collection; they all look amazing in their own right and can be mixed and matched or used over completely different base colors.

I was at a Target store one time with my grandmother, and a friend…as I went looking for some great bright blue fingernail polishes, I had found one that I got for $2.00. It was, and still is an awesome color on my nails…as it’s so bright outside, that when in the sunlight…it looks like its glowing bright blue with glitter in it of course. Unforanately, it does’nt last at all on your fingernails once you’ve applied it with several coats as its really a gel type of fingernail polish I think, right? Well this polish that I’m particularly talking about is: Sinful Colors PROFESSIONAL-831 HOTTIE(this is the color of it). Have anyone of you, on this website tried this color? And do you like it, or agree with me about what I had said about it? Please e-mail me back with your comments on this one? I looked at the Galactic one, as its a light bright blue color…and almost bought that one, until I happened acros the Orbit color, which to me….had more dark blue/purple color effects depending on how the light hits the flecks of glitter or whatever it is…that makes it come out that way, so I bought that one instead of the Galactic one, and I love it’s effects on my nails whenever I apply it to them….the efect, is just otherworldly. But buyer’s beware, as if you buy this polish from a store such as Target like I had done…..be prepared to fork over a whopping $15.00’s or more, for just one of the polishes….$15.00’s is no worry to me, as I can afford it if I chose to do so…..but for many other’s out there, who love this and all the other polishes that follow within the same line, and can’t afford to buy not one of them, are all now wishing……that Revlon would stop selling their polishes such as the line of these, for such outrageously expensive prices.

Does anyone agree with anything that I had posted above??? If so, please e-mail me back about how you feel about this topic?

Also, while at the same store….I saw the available collection of the Revlon Moon Candy nail polishes, and I was thrilled as to the neat effects that it would have once applied. My favorite color is blue as well(well more of the bright Energon Blue from the Transformers series/shows).

The first one I bought was Galactic (blue is my favourite colour so of course I wanted that one) and I was just hooked! I absolutely adored the way the glitter changed hue depending on how the light hit it and I just had to go out and get more. Fortunately, Boots were having a 2 for £10 on all Revlon products so I bought Meteor (a khaki colour with green glitter) and Moondust (black with silver glitter) and I am just so excited to try them!
