I’m back with my third post for the Digital Dozen does stamping week! And yes, I’m already a day late on this one. Ugh! I intended to get so much done this week but whatever germ I caught has really taken me out. I’m starting to feel a little better but a couple of days in bed didn’t help for getting anything done on time.
For today’s stamping post, I have a review of 4 new polishes from Moonflower! These can be used as regular polishes or for stamping, and of course today I am showing you how they perform as stampers. Nadia describes these as iridescent duochromey holos with coordinating microflakies, and yes, they are as pretty as they sound! I have 2 looks with each of these 4 polishes so be sure to check out the full post!
First up in the collection is Moonflower Polish Tortuga. When I upwrapped these, Tortuga was the one that instantly caught my eye. I guess I have a thing for the greens, remember with the last Moonflower collection how Dark Green was my favourite?
Tortuga is described as a yellow-leaning green holo jelly base with a green-yellow gold shift. I saw mostly orange-gold shifts although the green was by far dominant. This polish was such a vibrant stamper! To get this look, I started with a base of an unnamed mint polish from Vixen, then stamped using Tortuga and plate BP-L008.
I knew that between the light colours and the semi-jelly base, these would perform best over dark colours, but just look at how amazing it is over a light base!
It is a more subtle look over a lighter base since the colours are more similar, but you can see that the stamping is perfect and vibrant.
And now see how incredible it is over a dark base! You can even see some of those gorgeous gold shifts coming through.
To get this look, I started with a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black and then stamped using plate BP-L003 and Tortuga.
Isn’t that stamping perfect! This is a real winner over a dark base. Fun fact: Tortuga means turtle in Spanish! I need to try some turtle or tortoise stamping with this gorgeous green.
Next up is the blue from the collection, Moonflower Crepúsculo.
Crepúsculo is described as a blue jelly holographic base with a purple-blue-teal shift. I absolutely love this vibrant shade of blue!
To get this look, I started with a base of Essence Grey-t To Be Here. This is already a shimmery shade, so it is great that the stamping showed up so well. I stamped using Moonflower Crepúsculo and plate BP-L008.
I really like the blue and grey together! I think it was the perfect base to show how Crepúsculo can shine over a lighter base.
So gorgeous! And now to see how it looks over a dark base:
Again, over the dark base, you can see some of the gorgeous shift!
I had to go with starry stamping with this one to celebrate the name – Crepúsculo means twilight in Spanish. To get this look, I started with a base of Morgan Taylor Danced and Sang-ria and then stamped using Crepúsculo and Moyou Princess Collection 18.
I absolutely love seeing the macros of these. All of the shimmer and little microflakies come through! So stunning!
Next up in this collection is a purple, Moonflower Mariposa.
Testing out these stamping polishes has made me realise that I don’t have enough pastel cremes in my collection. I had a hard time finding good base shades for these! This lovely lavender did work well, though.
Mariposa is described as a purple jelly holographic base that shifts purple-silver-blue. I have a soft spot for all purples so this one was basically an instant winner for me.
Isn’t it pretty?
And how gorgeous is it over a darker base?
Just look at that macro! The shimmer, the holo, the microflakes – it is stunning!
Mariposa means Butterfly in Spanish, so of course, I added the butterfly on my thumbnail.
Last but not least in this collection is Amapola. This one is described as a reddish jelly holographic base that shifts red-pink-orange.
This stamping polish is perfect for this rose images! I’m also glad I used the two different rose images, they go so well together.
As with the other polishes in this collection, Amapola also looks incredible over a dark base.
For this look, I started with a base of p2 Geek Freak. I then stamped using Amapola and plate BPL-027.
My personal tastes in polish colours mean that I liked the green, blue and purple better than this red, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t gorgeous!
Like the rest of the collection, this polish has been named with a Spanish word. Amapola is Spanish for hibiscus.
Each of these polishes also looks gorgeous on its own – I’ll be sharing swatches with you soon!
