Moonflower Polish Spring Collection Swatches

The polish in this post was provided by the maker for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Remember the stamping I showed you last week using the Moonflower Polish Spring collection? Well, the 4 polishes from this collection can also be worn as regular polish and they are all gorgeous on their own! In fact, wearing these as regular polish allows you to see a lot more of the lovely shift these have. The set is described as iridescent duochromy holos in a jelly base. Don’t let the ‘jelly base’ part scare you – keep in mind these can even stamp effectively, so they are nice and opaque. Each polish also has an iridescent flakie that shifts in the same coordinating colour. These will also look amazing if used together in nail art! I can see a stained glass type look being done with them.

I’ll start off with my favourite from the set, Moonflower Polish Tortuga.

Hi everyone!

I know, I know, I’m so late with this post! But here it is at last, my fifth and final post for last week’s Digital Dozen stamping theme. For this theme, I needed to combine the prompt with a few stamping plate and polish reviews I needed to get done. So far, I shared reviews of 3 plates from Beauty Big Bang – plate BeautyBigBang10, plate BeautyBigBang09, and plate BeautyBigBang07. I also shared my review on how the Moonflower Polish Spring collection performs for stamping. Today I’m back with another review, this time for Born Pretty Store plate Valentine’s Day BP-L001.

Hi everyone!

I’m still behind, but chugging along – today I have my 4th post of the Digital Dozen’s stamping week to share with you. So far this week, I’ve combined my posts with stamping plate and polish reviews – firstly plates BeautyBigBang10 and BeautyBigBang09, and then I shared stamped looks with the Moonflower Polish Spring collection. Today I am continuing the trend with a review of plate BeautyBigBang07.

Hi everyone!

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!

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! Can you believe it’s already time again? Thanks to the February week being a little later in the month than usual, this one came up so quickly! I have to say that I have had a crazy couple of weeks and didn’t get much chance to prepare for this week. On top of that, I’m sick with a miserable cold and don’t really feel like doing anything. All that considered, I’ve decided to combine my Digital Dozen posts this week with some stamping polish and plate reviews that I need to get posted. I don’t usually like to combine but I have to get these up anyway, and technically they are perfect for the theme. So, today’s Digital Dozen stamping post comes in the form of a review of Beauty Big Bang stamping plate 10.

Pink-Gold-Green Chameleon Nail Powder

Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

I have a review to share today of some holographic chameleon nail powder from Beauty Big Bang. I have tried several of their different loose pigments and flakies before, from their silver holo powder to their green-purple chameleon flakies, which were really cool. The one I am sharing today is a smooth (no flakies), strong multichrome effect powder, with added holo.

Moonflower Polish | Vampy Cremes Swatches

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

Remember the amazing vampy stamping polishes from Moonflower I showed you the other day? Well, it turns out they can do more than just stamp. Today I have swatches of the 5 vampy cremes on their own as regular polish and they are amazing like this too! Before I even start showing you the pictures, I need to let you know that I used only ONE COAT for each of these 5 polishes. They are incredibly pigmented and while force of habit – plus wanting to make sure I didn’t miss any spots due to poor application skills – generally makes me want to use 2 coats for any polish, these really, truly only need one. Let’s take a look at these beauties!

Because of my Character | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer March PPU

The polish in this post was provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

It’s almost time for the March Polish Pickup to start! Can you believe it’s already March? The sale with plenty of book-themed polishes available is starting tomorrow. Today, I have a swatch of one more polish you probably need to add to your wishlist! This is Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Because of My Character.

Family Secrets | Northern Star Polish March PPU

Hi everyone!

Can you believe that it’s already almost the end of February? In a couple of days, it’ll be March, and with March comes the books theme for Polish Pickup! The books theme was a long time coming, almost making it in over the past couple of months and then just being voted out. Finally, the books theme won, and I for one am really excited about it! I have been seeing a few books that I know and enjoy, and others that I haven’t read before – along with lots of pretty polish!

If Polish Pickup is new to you, here’s how it works: prior to each month’s Polish Pickup weekend, there is a period for nominations, and then voting for a theme. These are announced in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook group, if you’d like to keep up with them there. Once a theme has been selected, participating makers all make a nail polish or other nail care and related items according to the theme. These are revealed in the weeks leading up to the pickup weekend. Finally, on the first weekend of the month, all of the items are available for purchase in one convenient shop. For March, the shop opens at 11 am EST on March 2 and is open for three days, until March 5. That is the only time that this nail polish is available! Enough talk – time for swatches!
