A little change in schedule again, so it's NOTD Monday today :) This is one of the shades from Revlon's Moon Candy Nail Art line - Cosmic.
The Moon Candy nail polish are dual-ended bottles, which house a base colour on one end and a flakie top coat on the other. The tubes are only 0.26oz/ 7.68ml for both ends, retail $8.96 each.
Cosmic is eye catching because of this dusty olive shade, and I just know I have to have it. This is 2 coats, could use another coat for full opacity. I like this type of colour, dark enough but not black.
The base is clear but a little thick. I applied 2 coats (with dabbing motions) for denser appearance, and it feels thick on the nails afterward. I already added some drops of nail polish thinner on this end of the tube.
Gold flakes on dusty olive green? Pretty, I must say!
Under certain lighting and angle, the flakes look gold and orange alternatively, exactly like Hidden Treasure, just a little bolder and visible.
I'm digging this type of packaging for travel, and the option to pair either of these 2 shades with other nail polish is endless. The only thing I was not happy about with Cosmic was the imperfect brush one end had. It flared out awkwardly, I might have to cut off part of it.
All in all, despite a few flaws, Cosmic is cool. I like the colour range offered in this line. I only got 2 shades, but if there's a sale in the future, I might grab more :)
What do you think about these Moon Candy tubes? Have you tried any shades? Thoughts?
