Revlon: Moon Candy Collection; Flakie Polish Treats

I’ve been polishing nail wheels and, actually, having fun doing that. Since my own, pathetic nails are out of commission and into rehab, I’ve taken to re-inventing the (nail) wheel. I was missing painting my nails.

Revlon has been releasing nail polish collections with dual-ended bottles. I reviewed one from the ‘Moon Candy’ collection last month here. This is the first time that I have used the dual-ends and it is quite nice for the ‘Moon Candy’ look.

Here are all the polishes from that collection…

The order of these shades will be the same on the nail wheels coming up too. Starting on the left: Galactic (dark Blue); Milky Way (dark Grey); Satellite (Burgundy); Supernova (Grey); Universe (dark Brick); Cosmic (Olive); Moon Dust (Black).

The opaque shades are all cremes…

And the accompanying glitters are in a faintly tinted base with shard-like flakies…

The cremes alone are gorgeous. I have worn Galactic (dark Blue) and Milky Way (dark Grey) without the flakie top coat. But, there is magic in the universe when these are used together…

I don’t think I will ever get tired of flakie glitters. It surely is one of my favorite polish looks. ‘Moon Candy’ polishes glow like the stars on the perfect, cloudless night…

Just some more goodness…

Take a gander and tell me which one you like best. Or, if you are like me, maybe you can’t pick because you like them all…

I used 2 coats of the creme and just one coat of the flakie top coat. I only had to do the tiniest bit of fishing for the glitter but only because I allowed myself to be fussy with it. I can’t say that the top coat is totally smooth; it does have some bumpiness to it. However, I didn’t put on a clear top coat over the glitter top coat. I would have done so if I would have worn these polishes just because I know that I’d be rubbing my finger tips over them habitually.

You can find these at almost all drugstores. I found mine at Walgreens. I still see them in a few stores but, never the entire collection. Did you get yours?

  • Those are super pretty! I used to not flakies (ask Steph!) but now I kind of adore them. Ooops! :X

    • It’s OK to change our minds. I used to laugh at those that liked Hello, Kitty. Now I love her!

  • I love flakies!

  • Laura G

    I always ALMOST pick these up 🙂

    • Oh, these are limited, you know! I’d nab ’em right up!

  • Jaclyn

    Gorgeous!

    When these came out I stocked up on each one and bought multiples of a few. I’ve since only used one once, but hey that’s what happens when you buy more polish than 10 people can use in a lifetime…
    My bottle of Supernova has MOLD growing in the creme end. I used it once. I’ve got bottles from high school (mid-90s) that are in better shape than that! Ugh.
    I’m going to try KB Shimmer’s flakies, they look so smooth and neat.
