Hi guys ! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I had a nice relaxing weekend with family and went shopping. I loved the rain we had last night, even had light hail. *squeal* I love a good thunderstorm.
Today I'm sharing two lovely Revlon Moon Candy shades with you - Orbit and Cosmic. The Moon Candy range included one side that's a creme polish, and the other side with holographic flakies . *swoon* I really love the look of the flakies in these polishes... It's gorgeous.
First up is Cosmic. The base for Cosmic is a a dark yellow-green creme. It needed . Needs two coats for opacity. The shift in the flakie colour went from orange to green . I used one coat of the flakie side in the photos below.
First up the photos of Cosmic -Although I'm not a huge fan of green nail polishes , this one was quite fun to wear.
Next up is Orbit . The base for Orbit is a dark eggplant purple and is a one-coater. The shift of the flakies here goes between blue and purple . I used one coat of Orbit and one coat of the flakies below. This one was my personal favourite of the two.
Below is the photos of Orbit -
My overall thoughts on the collection:
- Dry time is a longer than normal because the flakie polish is quite a bit thicker and removal is not as difficult as glitter but not as smooth as it would be without the flakies. In other words, removal will take some time but not be as messy or frustrating as taking off glitter
- Base coat! Base coat! Base coat! If you don't wear it, you seriously risk staining your nails since all the base polishes are dark. Use two base coats to be safe . I only used one coat of base coat on Orbit and it stained. *sad facey *
- You will have to use the dabbing technique to place the glitters, simply sweeping it across the nails will not leave enough flakes on the nail and then if you try to sweep on another coat, you'll pull off the ones you already have on
- If your a flakie fan, you'll love this collection to death.
These polishes retail at Revlon counters nationwide for R89,95 .
As mentioned, my favourite of these two were Orbit, but Cosmic looked pretty cool too.
Which one is YOUR favourite ? Did you do anything fun this weekend ??
Have an awesome Monday !
