Revlon’s Moon Candy: Orbit

Revlon’s newest double-end polish set is called ‘Moon Candy’. This is the display I found at Walgreens. I snapped it with my phone camera so the picture really sucks. I went to Revlon’s website to see if there was a decent photo there and they didn’t have one. I didn’t want to steal a photo, but you can find a lot of photos and info on this collection if you google it…

Moon Candy makes me think of these…

and these…

Are those face orbs vomiting my space dust candy??? Ewwwww!!!

I got them all; I confess. Walgreens had the BOGO 1/2 price special so I went for it. The first one I picked to swatch is called ‘Orbit’…..

‘Orbit’, another candy! Well, the purple creme looks like a nice, healthy purple plum. The top coat is flakies. The base is a murky purple shade and those flakies are with no doubt, iridescent.

I would even like ‘Orbit’ just for the pretty plum polish…

But as soon as I snapped these photos, I ran back into the house and put on the top coat…

I love it. Flakes and all. I do want to mention that the creme was rather thick. In fact, it seemed to get thicker the more I kept putting the brush back in for more polish. The top coat, not so bad. I did put on two coats of the base color and two of the top. I used CND’s ‘Sticky’ for a base coat and this mani lasted two and a half days until I removed it.

This concept of having two polishes together in one packaging may not be popular with some bloggers, but I do like it. I really don’t need a full-size bottle of polish. I just don’t use up an entire bottle. However….at $6.99 a bottle, I think that’s a bit too much. So, the BOGO 1/2 off made it somewhat better.

Since I did get the entire collection, I’ll be doing more swatches. But, if you are eager to see more, you can visit Pointless Cafe blog. She did what she is calling ‘Down and Dirty’ swatches of Revlon’s new collection.

Are you going to try these out?
