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.
