Revlon Moon Candy Galactic - Swatches and Review

Revlon Moon Candy Galactic by @unitedinbeauty
I know, I know, I'm a bit late and I missed the great Revlon Moon Candy bandwagon of 2014 but I'm discovering it all over again, and I am in LOVE! I'm honestly just discovering the magic of flakies for the first time, and I can't take my eyes off of them. So much holographic goodness!

Galactic is by far my favorite out of the entire Revlon Moon Candy collection. It's a double ended polish, with one side being a very deep dark purple, which appears almost blue black under certain lighting. I wanted to emphasize the flakies and let them stand out as much as possible, so for my manicure I used Orly Liquid Vinyl, which is a very glossy black.

The blue and green holographic flakies are a great size, and I had no trouble with getting them to lay flat on my nails. They are a bit chunky, so I added three coats of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat to be sure to encase them completely.

Overall, I'd give Revlon Moon Candy a total thumbs up, the flakies are gorgeous, are just the right size, and made for a fabulous manicure with minimal effort. I know I'll be using this polish again!

Lavender and White Nails with Color Club Covered in Diamonds Accents

Maybelline Color Show Lust for Lilac by @unitedinbeauty
As you may have noticed, I've been on a bit of a hand painting kick lately, and the streak continues! These are bright and fun, and easy enough for even beginners to recreate. I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of Lust for Lilac, and added the holographic flakey accents once the base coat was fully dry. Just to add a little zip, I used my nail art brushes to hand paint the lines on each finger. Easy peasy!

Orange and White Polka Dot Nails

Orange and white polka dot dotticure nails by @unitedinbeauty

I don't know about where you all are, but here in Ohio the weather we are experiencing right now can best be described in two words : Drab and Blech! I might not be able to control the weather outside, but I definitely can make it feel like summer on my nails with some bright, cheerful colors! This dotticure certainly perked up my mood today, I love this fab bright orange so much!

- Polishes  Used -
  •  Zoya - Arizona and Purity
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat
- Extras - 
  • Dotting Tools
Step 1: Begin by applying 2 coats of Arizona by Zoya ( or Purity for the ring finger accent nail) and allow to dry completely. 
Step 2: Once dry, use a medium sized dotting tool to create polka dots in the opposite color. To get perfectly round and even sized dots, you will want to dip the end of your dotting tool into the polish after each dot. For best results, use a light hand and just dab the end to your nails. PRO TIP: You can also use a bobby pin or the end of a makeup brush in a pinch if you do not have dotting tools!
Step 3: Allow your dots to dry completely in order to avoid smearing, then apply a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat. Typically, Seche Vite is to be applied while the polish is still slightly wet, but in this case your dots will smear if you do not let them dry fully.
Step 4: Kick back and enjoy your new dotted manicure!

What do you guys think, is this one a hit or a miss for you? How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
