Today, I am sharing with you the unique Nail Art Moon Candy from Revlon. It's a 2 sided nail polish. One side is a creme colour polish and the other side is a glittering 3D effect polish. This particular one is called Orbit.
The particular shade of purple is gorgeous. I LOVE deep regal purples. It's darker than an eggplant, and it can't be mistaken for black. I know that it's hard to tell from the pictures, but it's definitely a purple! The purple (side 1) goes on like a dream and is opaque in one coat. It dries relatively fast and it's so easy to work with. I'm so super impressed!
The glitter isn't really a flakie like it may first appear. I would say it's more like shaved ice...a thick iridescent plastic. I will say that it is insanely gorgeous to look at both in the bottle and on the nail. Unfortunately, it's not the easiest to work with at all! My accent nail has 3 coats of patient applying. It's very hard to get the flakes on the brush and when you do the liquid is perhaps a little too liquid and they slip off or you only get the liquid on your nail and not the flakes. What I ended up doing is taking out the brush, dipping it right down the middle and pulling it straight up. Then I ran one side of the brush along the edge of the bottle to press out as much liquid as I could. I then swept my nail with a light hand. It would really work best by dividing your nail into 3 sweeps while doing this, instead of trying to put on one full coat each time. As disappointing as this was to work with I am happy with the final result, however.
Here is a closeup of the gorgeous flakes.
Here I took the picture against mu comforter so you can see that it's a really deep regal purple. The colour really is too beautiful for words. And, again... I can't say enough how beautifully the purple colour went on and amazing that it was this opaque in ONE coat! You can see how pretty the glitter is here!
Here is the look, again! As frustrated as I was with the glitter...I will definitely be using it again and I will consider purchasing another colour. I'm particularly interested in trying the gray with the pink flakes. With patience, this look can be achieved. If you have little patience you may want to pass on Revlon's Moon Candy!
Well, that's it! I'm super tired so I'm going to bed early tonight! I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
