Moonflower Polish ~ November ’20 PPU

*This polish was provided for review. *Picture Heavy

Are we ready for this? I mean, it’s NOVEMBER PPU! November!! Christmas is right around the corner. Today I have for you Moonflower Polish‘s contribution to the theme Red Carpet. Nadia was inspired by Ariana Grande’s grey dress from the 2020 Grammy Awards. Here is the inspiration pic which I grabbed from google:

Silver Lining is a grey based holo base with a pink to red to gold shifting shimmer. To me this is antiqued silver. Such a gorgeous holo! I only saw pink shimmer. For the life of me I just could not catch the shift on film. It doesn’t matter really because the pink shimmer is strong and beautiful and it totally compliments the base. This polish is on the thinner side for Nadia’s usual polish. Even with a thinner base I was still able to stamp. And even better I still only used 1 coat. Lot’s of pics ahead!! I used 1 coat for my swatches. Price $12.50 Cap 100/US 5/UK.

What do you think? I think Silver Lining perfect for the season. I see my daughter stealing this from me in the very near future lol. Abi is obsessed with holo and darker polishes. This will definitely stamp better over darker colors but it will also work for lighter colors as well. The cap for this polish is only 100 for US and 5 for UK so make sure you have warmed up your ninja fingers! Polish Pickup will be open November 6th-9th only. Thanks for reading. Have a good night y’all.

Moonflower Polish ~ June 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review
Good morning friends! How is your weekend so far? Mine is amazing! I got the call that our offer for a house was accepted. I’m buying a house!!! I’m so very excited that I couldn’t sleep well so here I am. Today I have for you Moonflower Polish‘s contribution to Polish Pickup‘s Cocktails & Mocktails. Shall we?
Blueberry Lemonade is a “Pinkish mauve crème with subtle hint of purple to blue multichrome sparkle.” This polish is inspired by the cocktail at the Boathouse Restaurant in Disney Springs (Orlando, FL). As usual, this polish is made for stamping and other nail art. It is suggested that if you do use it for regular wear, you add thinner to the polish so it isn’t as thick. I actually didn’t add a thing and it polished perfectly for me. I really love the color. To me it’s a cross between bubblegum and roses. The shimmer is pretty subtle but over black it really pops. That was my favorite nail. For the regular wear I used 2 coats. You could totally pull off 1 coat if you polish thicker. 

Look out for more manis with this color because it is just perfect! Polish Pickup goes live on June 5th through the 8th at 11am EST. Blueberry Lemonade will be $12.50 and there will be a cap of 75 US only. Ninja fingers y’all. Hope you have a fantastic Sunday and a very happy Memorial Day! Links below. 

Moonflower Polish ~ Pop Pastels

*These polishes were provided for review*
*Very picture heavy*
Hey! I’m back guys! I cannot even begin to express how happy I am to get back to nails! Especially with all of these trying times. I mean, can you even believe this? I feel like I live in a book right now. The world is going through such a tough time right now and I am so glad I can be here to give you a little brightness in your lives. Today I have for you the Pop Pastels from Moonflower Polish. Gorgeous pastels with a bright pop! Each mani has 2 coats of polish on my pinky. 1 coat is totally plenty. It is recommended to thin them a little if you are going to just wear them as a polish. I didn’t. These are made specifically to stamp or use in nail art so they will be on the thicker side. Let’s get to them. 
Paloma is a dove gray. “Yes, it’s really pigeon gray…but I haven’t really seen one since moving to Florida and they are all over the place in Puerto Rico so maybe I’m subconsciously missing them? There’s place in Old San Juan called El Parque de las Palomas where there were hundreds of pigeons and you could feed them, visited many times. Smelled awful, but still brings back good memories of simpler times.” I am absolutely loving greys lately. They are so universal and I feel they flatter any skin tone. This cool grey has a fantastic shimmer that just really makes it special! 

Salmón is a “salmon pink, kinda coral. I love fresh salmon sushi.” While I don’t do sushi myself, I absolutely love this color. I am not a huge fan of floral manis and this made me love my cute little flowers! Again, the shimmer makes this polish.

Lavanda is a “soft purple, my daughter loves lavender and soft pastel purples. I’m horribly allergic but I still get her lavender scented things cause I know they help her fall asleep and relax. Middle school is tough.” So is high school. I love/hated both. This reminds me of my son. We use the lavender scented bath stuff to calm him before going to bed. I absolutely love the mixed smell of new baby and lavender!! 

Girasol is a “sunflower orange-yellow. My twin sister loved sunflowers growing up, they always make me think of her.” Sunflower is the perfect description for this yellow. It’s such a deep, warm yellow. Makes me want warm sunny days. I couldn’t capture the shimmer well in this one. It’s there and it’s beautiful. 

Menta is a “minty green, just a great refreshing spring green.” Another good description. This green is the perfect amount of minty while being the perfect amount of springy at the same time. The shimmer, for some odd reason, makes me think of jelly beans.

Agua is a “Caribbean sea blue, a shimmery turquoise, like the waters that I love and miss of my home island.” I have never been further south than Orlando, Florida so this color makes me crave a Caribbean vacation so bad. I just want the waters that you can see through with all the beautiful sea life passing by.



Cielo is a “the color of the sky on a bright sunny day. Florida gets these really nice cloudless days where the sky is exactly this color and the temps are cool. I call them “theme park days” cause they’d be perfect for that.” I haven’t been to a park in such a long time. My daughters go weekly of more to Six Flags every summer (season passes). Either way I am a super sucker for a blue polish. My favorite type of polish is a shimmer crème so you can imagine how much I love this one.

Café is a “light brown, it’s the color of a proper cup of coffee in my opinion. Just a hint of milk and sugar, can’t start my day without it.” I use flavored creamer instead of milk and sugar but the color is pretty accurate for a great cup of coffee. I like mine a touch lighter but not much. The shimmer in this brown makes it different from any other brown I own. It’s a very sensual type color.

The Pop Pastels are available now in Nadia’s shop! These will only be available in full size bottle as the mini bottles come from Italy and that’s obviously not happening at the moment. Each bottle will be $9 and the full set of 8 polishes will be $65. Please allow 5-10 business days for shipment. This is the normal TAT but just keep in mind what we are all going through at the moment. Moonflower Polish is always my favorite brand to stamp with. The quality is fantastic and the customer service is amazing. Links below for what I used for these manis. I hope you all stay safe and healthy in these particularly trying times! Have a great night!!

Moonflower Polish ~ May ’19 PPU

*Provided for review
It’s almost that time again! PPU is back with one of my favorite themes!! The 80’s!! I was born in the 80’s so I have been reminiscing for weeks. This may sound corny, but I’m sure other 80’s babies will understand; It was a simpler time. I appreciate the childhood I had. The things that molded me into who I am today! Times like this I wish I worked so I could buy these pretties. I shall live vicariously through you all so please buy up everything this month! I need it lol! One polish I do have is from Moonflower Lacquer. This polish is based on Puerto Rican pop sensation Chayanne and his 1987 Fiesta en America music video. Let’s have a look.
Fiesta en America is a denim blue creme stamping polish with scattered holo, red-gold micro flakes and green-blue micro flakes. This one is dynamic and so freaking awesome. Denim is a spot on description of the blue color. The flakes are such a great addition. It looks peppered ya know? Really spectacular polish. I used2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Moonflower Polish ~ Gemstones: Part 2

*Provided for review

Hey y’all! Tonight I have for you the second installment of the Gemstones Collection from Nadia of Moonflower Polish. I have a ton of pics so I will get right to the review. Each polish has the same flawless 1 coat application. These polishes were formulated to stamp so they are very opaque. I cannot wait to use them in more nail art. They are super holo but don’t dry super shiny so I suggest a good top coat to make them pop! And because I am me, I used 2 coats plus top coat for my swatches. I did not matte these. They are ultra holos so I wanted that to be the focus. Ready for the pics? Me too!
Rubi (Ruby) is a warm toned red ultra holo with slight orange undertones. 2 coats plus glossy top coat

Moonflower Polish ~ PPU Feb. ’19

Hey! Who here had Barbies when they were little? I was never super into all the stuff she came with like the horse and the car. I just really liked to dress them and do their hair. How about Ken? I had the one with the roller blades that actually sparked! Ugh, the memories 💗 Was there ever really a more iconic duo? Moonflower Polish is bring you half of this duo with a Barbie neon pink polish. It is freaking fabulous and I have a bunch of pictures of it so get comfy!!

Ken, I Pink I Love Youis a super bright neon pink creme with indigo-blue aurora pigment and blue microflakes”. My camera and my phone both gave me trouble taking pics of this polish. That has never happened to me! This polish is really just that neon. I love the shimmer it has. The shimmer and flakies show up SO GOOD when stamped over black. And, the polish stays that super neon pink when stamped. It is a neon lovers dream. Also a pink lovers dream.  The formula is great. 2 easy coats with glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. I kept the art as Barbie-ish as possible! Ken, I Pink I Love You will be $12.50 USD. Sorry in advance for my funky looking skin!

Moonflower Polish ~ PPU Dec. ’18

*Provided for review

Hey! How is your weekend? So far, mine has been nice and boring 😊 I do prefer it that way… ESPECIALLY with being smack dab in the middle of holiday season! Today I have another PPU polish from December’s Enchanted Forest theme. Nadia is bringing you an awesome polish as usual ❤ Let’s have a look.

La Isla del Encanto “is a dark green base with green-blue multichrome sparkle on one angle, and a contrasting indigo-purple-red shimmer at other angles. Inspired by the colors of the Puerto Rican parrot and our rainforests, because we are known as The Aisle of Enchantment, and I couldn’t think of a better and more enchanting forest to use for inspiration.As always with a stamping polish, it is a little on the thicker side. This polish has that low key sparkle that just really pulls this all together. It’s like gold and blue sparks. So pretty ❤ The color shift is a little shy but it is definitely there. When used to stamp, it’s best over dark colors. It really catches the shift better. This is easily a 1 coat polish but I, of course, used 2 coats with glossy and matte top coats. I also added a holiday nail art cuz ’tis the season 🌲🌲 La Isla del Encanto will be $14 USD.

Moonflower Polish ~ PPU Nov ’18

*Very wordy

Hello! I am so happy that this month is Bad Ass Women month over at Polish Pickup! As a woman, there isn’ t anything quite as powerful and uplifting as another strong female ❤ The polishes that have been created this month are just beyond amazing. “Moonflower Polish chose Carrie Fischer as Leia Organa. It’s important to make the distinction that MFP is using the actress as well as the character she’s most known for. As a person, Carrie was one of the most badass women in Hollywood. And huge mental health advocate, she was unapologetic about her issues and struggles. Nadia deeply admired her wit and passion about life. Yes, she had plenty of faults, but no one ever said she was perfect, and she never tried to be. That was one of the things she loved about her.
The character she played, was even more important to Nadia. From her first encounter with Darth Vader right at the beginning of New Hope, you knew this girl was a spitfire and more than she seemed. When Luke, Han, and Chewie are trying to rescue her, and she says “this is some rescue, you broke in here and don’t have a plan to get out”, then grabs the blaster from Luke and ends up rescuing them all instead…that’s when you knew she was not a princess in need of rescue. If you stop to think about it, she had just endured what could possibly be the most traumatic thing a person can experience, the destruction of her home planet, everything and everyone she knows and loves, gone in an instant, only to then be tortured and thrown in jail. Yet she never falters, she never quits, she never breaks, she has a mission and won’t stop till it’s completed. Years later, when we see her again in The Force Awakens we know her life between Return of the Jedi and then has had it’s share of heartbreak and struggles. Yet she’s still there, leading The Resistance and the fight against The First Order.
And that is why, for Badass Woman, Nadia did not want to use Princess Leia in her white outfit with buns in her hair or the skimpy gold bikini, she used to promotional pictures of her in The Last Jedi, as General Organa, leader of The Resistance.”

The General is a blueish gray creme base with red to gold color shifting aurora shimmers and scattered holo. Dual purpose, use for stamping or wear as regular polish in 1-2 coats. Dries semi-matte. The first thing I have to say about this is the formula was spectacular. Like totally flawless. The shimmer looked more hot pink than red to me. I actually paired it with pink 2 times without even realizing it. It stamps perfectly ❤ I have tons of pics to share with you for this one. It pairs with everything. I used 2 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

PPU is open November 2nd – 5th, 2018 so set those alarms 🙂 The General will be $12.50 USD and there will only be 150 bottle so don’t wait 🙂 As always links below. Have a fantabulous weekend ❤

Moonflower Polish ~ PPU Oct. ’18

*Provided for review

thrawn

Hey guys! I have more polishes for you from this months Polish Pickup. The theme for October is Villains! Nadia from Moonflower Polish has chosen to take on Star Wars Grand Admiral Thrawn. “My love of sci-fi really became an obsession when I read the Heir to the Empire Trilogy (also known as the Thrawn Trilogy) by Timothy Zahn as a pre-teen. I consider them to be necessary reading for any Star Wars fan. For decades, the books, comics, and video games of the Star Wars Expanded Universe was all SW fans had until the prequels and new Episodes came out. Sadly, after Disney’s acquisition of SW, they re-branded all these materials as “Legends” and declared them non-cannon in April 2014. However, not all hope is lost as a few characters have made their way back, including Thrawn who was once again introduced as a villain in the Disney SW Rebels cartoon show. Thrawn is a humaniod alien in the Star Wars Universe, one of the few to rise the ranks in the Empire. He’s described as having blue skin with red eyes and black hair, and is known for his brilliant strategic mind and ruthlessness. My polish is inspired by his appearance and uniform.” I know that’s kind of a lot but I think it’s necessary. I am a Star Wars fan (not HUGE HUGE but still) and I had no idea this character existed. I am really happy to have this info and I want o have it out there for anyone else like me who didn’t know. Now that you have been here forever, you might as well get some pretty pics!

 

The Grand Admiral “is a bright cerulean blue creme with red shimmer, red-pink-gold aurora pigment, and gold, gunmetal, and red microflakes, with scattered holo.”  Fun fact: cerulean blue is my all time favorite color. I used to pronounce it ser-you-lean… I was like 10 lol. Anyways, this blue is so perfect for it’s inspiration. Like the exact color! Nadia’s polishes are always on the thicker side since they are specifically made for nail art and stamping. The Grand Admiral wasn’t too thick at all. Perfectly creamy and smooth. It could totally be a 1 coater. I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coat for my swatches.

Moonflower Polish ~ Summer Neons

*Provided for review

*Very picture heavy

Hey! How are you all enjoying the weather? It’s still 8o degrees here in CT at 6:10 pm! That’s pretty warm for this area. I haven’t really felt it though to be honest. I have been inside all day getting ready for my vacation. I am going to be on the beach for a week in NJ! You already know I will be rocking the neons ❤ Moonflower Polish has a neon collection for summer and it is fantastic! These are a little on the thicker side, but totally workable. They all have gorgeous shimmers and stamp! Even over black! The theme of this collection is Summer Break and was mostly named by Nadia’s 10 year old daughter based on things that remind her of summer ❤  Let’s have a look at the polishes, then I will have some shop info for Moonflower Polish.

Sprinkles is a neon magenta pink polish with shimmer. I used 2 coats with top coat for my swatch. Great formula!

Thoughts: Lemonade, Popsicle, and Summer Sunset were the thickest of all. I did not add any thinner or anything, just an observation. It is common for these types of colors so no biggie 🙂 The rest are immaculate. Formula is great for neon polish. They do dry matte but the top coat really shows off the shimmer!

Now for the details. These polishes will be $9 for individual 15ml full size or $65 for the 8 piece set. $6 for individual 7ml mini size or $45 for the set. These are available now!

Notes from Nadia: Summer Clearance and Prototype Sale – starting July 4th and ending Jully 11. Use code JULY to save 20% on stamping polishes, the discount does not apply to the Neons or any Limited Editions or Small Batch Releases. I will also have prototypes for sale as I have way to many lying around. Price tdb and will be announced soon.

I will also be bringing back my May PPU polish, I Just Can’t Wait as a pre-order for that week only. As a special promotion, it will ship for free if that is the only polish purchased to make up for the fact that it’s coming from me and not from PPU HQ.  I will combine orders/hold and refund shipping for anyone who wishes to place an order for the neons or the custom and wants to wait to grab something during the sale.
