I've missed not wearing sparkly nails, after winter has gone I always go into spring mode and buy pastel colour nail polishes but as soon as I spotted Revlon's Moon Candy the other day in Boots I was instantly tempted and it was a snap and grab moment. This polish costs £7.99 and comes in about 10 different colours, I chose the "Satellite" shade.
I firstly shaped my nails, I went for the round shape as I'm getting bored of my nails always been square. I then painted my nails with the step 1 dark burgundy nail polish, which not only dried quickly but I love the colour and will definitely wear this colour alone. I only applied one coat, the texture was very thick I usually apply two thin coats of polish but the colour is so rich and thick that I only needed on layer.
I then applied the 'moon flakes', I LOVE the effect this gives my nails, it's not like any other nail polish glitter. The formula is a bit gloppy, and again I only needed one coat because I think it can look a bit overwhelming with two layers. The application is so easy! I cannot express how simple this was...it took me about 10 minutes and I think the final result is so impressive. I'm usually a Essie whore, but whilst shopping I took the plunge to try something else, so worth it.
Lastly, I applied a layer of Nails Inc Caviar 45 second top coat. I must warn you, you will need to apply a few layers of top coat because you can feel the 'moon flakes'.
What's your favourite moon dust?
Do you have any recommendation for different base colours?
