I'm super excited to share this review tonight. Another new Aussie Indie has popped up and I have a feeling there will be alot of great things from this brand and Caitlin (the owner). When I was asked by Caitlin to swatch and review 2 of her polishes I was blown away. As I have recently asked Caitlin to swatch a few of my own polishes and her swatches are freaking amazing! I love her nails - so to see some of her creations and get to test them has been awesome. So on with the review...
The blogger package I received was so professional. And might I add cute!
First up we have 'Dark Shines' which is described as 'A burple jelly-packed with deep purple holographic flakes with a blue shimmer. This polish is opaque in 3 coats but I thought I'd try one coat over OPI - Ink and it is amazing. So this is 1 coat of 'Dark Shines' over 1 coat of OPI -Ink with 1 coat of top coat.
'Dark Shines' is definitely my favorite, it's stunning. Easy to apply and oh so sparkly.
Secondly we have a matte glitter topper. 'Jiggery Pokery' is described as a fun glitter topper packed with white stars, mint squares, holo rose hex, light blue diamonds, periwinkle blue hex and iridescent rainbow hex. Caitlin's swatch of this polish was over a black polish, so I wanted to do a different swatch - I decided to go with OPI -Grape Fit, a lightish purple. This swatch is 1 dabbed coat of 'Jigger Pokery' over ! coat of OPI - Grape Fit and 1 coat of top coat.
I love how different and versatile this glitter topper is. I can't wait to bright it over some other maybe darker colours so the glitter really pops!
I am so impressed with both these polishes and the way Caitlin has set up her store and has made everything so professional already. Moonstone Nail Polish launches on the 29th of October and will sell for $9.50 each 12mL bottle. The store only has Australian shipping but I think it won't take Caitlin to long to get picked up by an international stockist - so hassle those stockists ladies and get this Aussie Indie spread over the world!
