New Revlon Moon Candy Nail Polish Review

Today I was snooping around Walgreens looking for any Sinful Colors I had missed a couple weeks ago when they were on sale for 99c each. This week they are 4/$5 with 1000 points back on a $5 purchase. But it looks like I either had everything they did or they didn’t get any new displays in, so I just kept shopping.

I walked past the Revlon display and saw all the Moon Candy which look like they might be on a permanent display. But something looked amiss. If you recall back in July 2012 when they were first issued I had purchased them and put up some of the first swatches here. At that time there were 8 in the collection, but there had always been mention of additional ones being released later in the year. However I never saw any fanfare from any other bloggers or in my nail polish groups, so I just assumed it never happened. But apparently it did, because this display had 10 polishes in it and 2 were definitely not ones I had gotten before. Oh how I loved my iPhone at that moment as I pulled it out and pulled up that original post to see which ones were added.

The two colors I didn’t have were Eclipse, a beautiful pink with purple flakies and a burgundy base.

And Meteor, a mint green with shamrock green and gold flakes and a dark olive drab base.

Both base formulas applied easily. I used 2 coats before applying a single coat of the flakies. Eclipse didn’t seem to pick up as much flakie as I’d like but the purple flakes are beautiful. On the other hand, Meteor soaked up loads of green and gold flakes. But I wanted to experiment as I had naked nails to play on. So I applied the burgundy base on my pinkie and middle fingers, and the green base on my ring and index fingers. I then applied Eclipse on my pinkie and ring fingers, and Meteor on my middle and index fingers.

And just for the heck of it I applied 2 coats of the dark green base to my thumb and applied 1 coat of Sinful Colors Green Ocean over it for comparison. I’ve heard a lot of people say Green Ocean is gloppy and icky. But I gotta tell you both of my bottles (which were received as gifts a year ago) apply just fine and are really dense! And BLUE! All my pictures are taken with my iPhone 4S and colors are only as accurate as it can capture. Also monitors might show colors in slightly different degrees.

OK but here’s the clincher. I didn’t buy the Revlons at Walgreen. They weren’t having any sales and I didn’t want to spend $10 on those little 1/4 oz bottles! So I stopped at CVS and not only did they also have the display, but when I scanned my Reward card I got a $3 coupon off $10 of Revlon products. But wait, there’s more! The Moon Candy are on Bogo 50% this week at CVS. But wait, there’s even more! There were $1 Revlon coupons on the front Revlon display so I grabbed 2 of them and used them as well, which got me one polish for free after all the discounts had been taken!

I’m just a sucker for flakies, holos and duos, and I rarely pass any of them. Although the Revlons aren’t as dense and the bottles aren’t anywhere near as large as most of my polishes, I’m still glad I’ve got them in my collection. And whenever I wear them I do get plenty of compliments. So if you’re looking to add to your Revlon Moon Candy collection and you have a CVS or a friend with one, get your hands on them before midnight Saturday!

Do you have any of these and how do you like them?

Eradicate H8 Nov 8! Stop Bullying Now!

Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.

Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.

As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color…even to our polish application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people’s view of “normal” dictate how I behave, believe, and blog.

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.

 

(nails inc franklin’s row over cheyne walk. Sation Periwinkle Princess over unknown purple.)

“Bullying” is not a new concept. When I started school in the 1960’s I remember distinctly the one and only time I was bullied. Two of my little friends and I were walking in front of the school and an older boy (4th grade maybe) pushed us and I stepped in a dirty puddle of water with my new white lace anklets and little red buckle shoes. I was so mad that without thinking I turned and shoved him. I’m sure that was a surprise to him and I realized from then on my friends and I would not be bullied. I’ve always stood up for the ones that can’t and I’m doing it today as I stand in solidarity with many others who feel the same way.

Thank you for sharing the word with us! Click Here to view the Eradicate H8 blog.

Terrified Collection

 

Anybody that knows me will tell you without a doubt that Halloween is and always has been my favorite holiday. My earliest memories of it were as a small child and my dad dressing up with me to take me trick-or-treating. When I got older we always had a party with cider, warm cinnamon donuts and apple dunking with my friends. One year we were visiting my grandparents and my mean boy cousins made me walk through a graveyard with them if I wanted to trick-or-treat. Even so, I will always cherish these memories.

 

Spider Funk is full of orange and red glitters and small irregular shaped black “spiders”, plus silver hex “full moons” that all stay shiny in the orange matte base. Wear on its own, layer over black, orange, burgundy or green, or with clear topcoat to bring out even more bling!

Opaque in 2 coats or wear over black to see the darker side of our favorite monster.

New Revlon Moon Candy Nail Polish with Swatches

ATTN: VERY Picture Heavy!

 

Friday while I was at Walgreen looking for the new WnW Saved by the Nail collection (which I didn’t find), I came across one I’ve been waiting several months to see – Revlon Moon Candy duos. I shop (stalk?) that store often for polish so the cosmetic mgr and I always compare manis and talk lacquer. She said they just put the display out the night before so I was able to raid it for one of each color. And I haven’t bought hardly any polish in months, so the eight $1 coupons she gave me was also a nice little bump to get me to buy the whole set! If you have OCD let me apologize now for the way I took them out of the rack – sorry! :{

 

Yeah I did a skittle mani last night with them. Some are AH-Mazing. Some are ok. The undies are funny ’cause some are 1 coaters, others 2. Same with the Flakies so I went ahead with 2 on each. Slow drying but some are oh so pretty! I also had to use a coat of Gelous over my usual TC. The Flakies weren’t overly rough but I wanted to smooth them out entirely. (Posche basecoat and SH Insta-Dry 110 Clear for topcoat.)

I wouldn’t go with some of the bases they did, but I’m showing them in their combinations. Also note that none of the bases have names! Some of these were easier to photograph than others, even after  up to and over 20 attempts each! Also note that some of the labels are peeling (makes for terrible pix IMO) because there are “directions” on the back that you pull the label off to read. I wanted to show you exactly what my bottles looked like while I was using them, but I will be putting a piece of tape over each one to keep them from fraying even worse!

 

Let’s start with Satellite. The base is a wine red in my opinion. This combination works pretty well together. In the store I was afraid the base was brown, and that’s not a color I wear, so I was pleasantly surprised on this one. The base on this was 2 coats.

This is the other pinky-peachy flakie in the set, Supernova. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but I don’t think it was this. Worn over Revlon’s choice of grey one-coat base, I think it really detracts from what this one could be. I’ll definitely being trying this one again over something else!

Cosmic reminds me of camoflouge. This dark olive green base was also a 2-coater. I like this one and they work well together too.

This is a gorgeous combination that I would wear again! Galactic is over a really deep navy blue base and the flakies come out teal colored on the nail. One coat of underwear was all this one took.

 Moondust really fooled me! It’s gorgeous blue flakies on the nail. It’s over a one-coat black base. I want to try this one over other colors!

Milky Way was my disappointment. Look at how awesome it is in the bottle. It just didn’t transcend that way on the nail. It may have been because Revlon chose to go with a deep grey for underwear, and it just sits there. I’m pretty sure this one would pop with the right base color. Just one coat for the base on this one, too.

Being that I’m a purple girl, I thought Orbit was going to be THE one for me. It is beautiful, but I really had to work at it to get the flakies out of the bottle. This one was the reason I decided to use two applications of flakies on each nail. I had to shake it well and stir the brush around inside of it to pick up the particles. It is pretty on though, over one coat of purple base.

Universe also had me fooled from the start. Again in the store the base looked brown. But I would call it a deep brick red and it’s really pretty. The flakies on this one work great. The base was one coat.

And last night I was posting these to my facebook page so you could get a quick sampling of them. So here they are in case you’re not following my page – but you should be! The link is up there ^^. 🙂

  

I think these were pretty expensive and I wouldn’t have bought them all if it wasn’t for the discounts I got at the store because I actually did only pick up half of them till I was told I could use the coupons at the counter for each one. I wish CVS had a cosmetic counter since the stores don’t carry all the same brands (we don’t have Rite-Aid) in South Florida.

So – do you want to run right out and buy them all? Or are there only certain ones you’re interested in? The bottle total weight is .26Fl Oz/7.68ml. How does that compare to the price of indies in your opinion?

Spring Flowers Collection to be Discontinued July 31

All good things must come to an end. And with summer in full swing it’s time to say good-bye to my Spring Flowers Collection. Bluebelle and Wilde Irish Rose are already in very limited supply and all colors will be gone forever after the end of July.

Orders will be filled first come, first served. Click on my Shop Tab at the top and click on Spring Flowers for ordering. Thank you! 🙂

Here’s just a fun mani I did early in the week with China Glaze and Orly Neons (Sun-Kissed – index, Under the Boardwalk – middle, I’m with the Lifeguard – ring, Melt Your Popsicle – pinkie, Splish Splash – thumb). Then applied some of the polishes from the Spring Flowers Collection over them (Buttercup – index, Wilde Irish Rose middle, Fields of Clover – ring, Orange Blossom Special – pinkie, Bluebelle – thumb). Although it’s extremely hard to capture them, BlueBelle and Wild Irish Rose have duo qualities in the right light. (Dewdrop is on my toes over Claire’s (Color Club) Starstuck Cosmic, but I didn’t think you wanted to see that! LOL)

Happy Birthday to Meeeee! :)

NOTE: Picture Heavy!

Oh yes, I’m still getting those fabulous, fun birthday gifts from my birthday club! Here’s the first post I put up about it in case you missed my debut video! I wanted to make another video, but Joe and I have been fighting these nasty colds for over a week now that seem to be plaguing the entire country. So last night I broke down and opened a few more of my gifts, with pictures only! I want to share them with you because I got some gorgeous polishes that I haven’t seen before, as well as some amazing indies for me to add to my small but growing collection by these talented ladies!

This gift actually came early in the month and I have NO idea why I didn’t already show it. My friend Nikki and I met very early in the nail polish community. We have been doing a very good job (too good maybe) of enabling each other with some marvelous collections ever since! When we found out we were in the same birthday club, it was “icing on the cake” as they say! I actually already sent her gift, even though her birthday isn’t for a few more months, because I had found the Color Club Backstage Pass set at Ross and didn’t want her to miss out on it, knowing how much she wanted it. Wait till her real birthday month comes! Shhhh – don’t spoil the surprise and tell her that she’s getting something else! LOL So on to what she got me! I had been longing for the CC Take Wing collection, but hadn’t found it around here. So what do you think she sent me? Yeppers – and what do you think I am wearing right now? You’re really good at this game, aren’t you?! And of course I got CHOCOLATE!!!!

   

And here’s what they look like on!

And a warning! TOES!!!! LOL And NOT the best pedi at that! 🙁

From Carrie I got Moar Chocolate!

See another cute PostCard? We were supposed to all be including one from our city or region for each gift. I’ve gotten some really nice ones that I’ve put up over my desk. Now this bridge, let me tell you, is one of the scariest I’ve EVER driven across. Actually I was a passenger and Joe drove across it. I don’t know that I could drive it. WOW – I ride 7-mile down in the Keys on my Harley all the time with no problem, but this one scared the shit outta me!!! LOL And Carrie tells me she drives it in the middle of the night to clear her head! OMG – She’s crazier than me!!!

And I also got Pure Ice Busted (PURPLE!!). Which is awesome because WalMart is really far from me and I don’t ever go there anyway. Suffice it to say I don’t like their policies! I love coffee, especially Starbucks. I also got a really neat little red lipstick case. I’ve had them in the past but have long since lost or ruined them, so this was a neat little treat to get! And a Cheshire Cat bracelet. Now isn’t that the cutest little thing?! But the piece de resistance was Carrie’s own Sassy Lacquer Pegasus Jizz! It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to try it and write a review for all of you. I’ve seen other reviews on it already, and it is a highly acclaimed polish in them! Thank you Carrie for sending me my own special bottle of Jizz! LMAO

Next up Candice went crazy (well she says her hubby did) buying me a huge tub of chocolate covered espresso beans! Now ask a coffe addicted chocoholic if it gets any better than this?! LOL And YES, they are Gooooood!! This was such a fun box to open because she had used BIG cotton balls for the packing and tons of fuzzy little craft balls that my cats just go wild over. When I first opened the box I saw a few of the fuzzies, but wait till you see the picture where I dumped it out!

Here it is dumped out on the couch. You can see all the goodies that came tumbling out!

Inside this fun box was a big Sally Hansen file, a bottle of JR Watkins Hand and Body Lotion (I love that stuff!) and the funniest card (Your brain on birthday cake!). She also found a set of Dragon nail transfers. They are unique and I can’t wait to use them. We want to do a bike trip soon, I’m gonna make sure I wear them when we do. (Take a look at that picture in my header. I have the dragon on both sides of my tank!) AND, two Essence Toppers that I haven’t even seen in stores! Glorious Aquarius in an aquatic blue. And Its Purplicious in my favorite – PURPLE!!! As soon as I saw them last night I KNEW I was going to be using them next – OVER the current mani I’m wearing. Why can’t we leave well enough alone?!

And one more box last night – from Kelly. This one wowed me! First, it was a Chocolate Box!!

 

But when I started opening those little bubble pillows I was astounded at her generosity! She included an OPI Nic’s Sticks Silver-Ella. Do you know how hard those are to find? A gorgeous silver holo I can’t wait to try. Then there was the large bottle of NYX Beach Glitter (NPS218). I have some NYX but they are much smaller bottles and I had never seen this one before. And I got indies! By three lovely ladies that I didn’t already own any by! But now I do! I can’t wait to try them. Ursula is a gorgeous purple glitter from one of those crazy Disney Villians (and all my girls know how much I love Disney) from Once Upon a Polish. The beautiful Basket Grass that I’ve heard so much about and agree it is stunning from Pretty & Polished. And the lovely color changing Aurora Borealis from Dollish Polish. It looks very purpley in the bottle and I can’t wait to try THAT! Last but not least is a Girl Scout Lip Smacker in Coconut Caramel Stripe which I think I’m just gonna eat straight outta the tube! LOL

These have been some amazing gifts and I’m excited that these girls are so thoughtful and also a bunch of mind readers! Chocolate, coffee, indies, holos, glitters, well thank you very much I will gladly accept them all with a HUGE smile on face. And all the charities that have had contributions made to them in my name has filled my heart with joy. This is a wonderful group of girls to be in a birthday club with and I thank them so much for being friends!

So tomorrow is my real birthday (May 29) and my little bro’s birthday is the next day! But I’ve got 10 years on the little monster! Wanna see a pic of us waaaaaay back when?!?! Ok well here it is anyway!

That’s also our older sis and our dad. I can’t believe this picture was taken back in the 70s. Man it seems like it could have been just yesterday. Time sure flies. I hope you are enjoying sharing my birthday month with me! There will be more to come! And since today is Memorial Day, I hope you’ve enjoyed it with your family and thought of a service man who has protected our freedoms. Here’s one more picture I’m sharing, of my Mom and her brother my Uncle Eddie, who was a pilot during WWII.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to let me share with you! 🙂
