Magic Treats from Moonstone Nail Polish

Living in the twenty-teens and still not dealing with the Harry Potter series coming to an end? Do you mumble lumos under your breath when you just can't find the light switch? Do you crave the sugary treats offered up by Honeydukes sweet shop? 

The Magic Treats collection from Moonstone Nail Polish might just be for you! This collection has been out for a little while now and I've had it on my wishlist since the moment it was announced. The collection features 3 crelly/glitters and 3 glitter toppers, all totally unique not only from each other but from any other Harry Potter polish collection I've seen.

I finally had the perfect opportunity to grab my four must-haves in a flash sale recently so I've had the joy of adorning my nails with the amazing colours of all my favourite (mostly) fictional sweets!

Acid Pop
Acid Pop

Acid Pop is a slimey green apple shade with a subtle warm golden shimmer. Neon hexes in white, neon green and yellow are suspended in the thick crelly base. The gold dots bring this to life - I love how they look shining right at the surface bringing a bit of extra shine. Some need a bit of coaxing to sit where you want them to but you can mostly get away with regular application.

I don't know what it is about these yellow toned green shades that I love, but I always find them fascinating in the bottle and even better on the nail. Maybe because it tones down the red in my skin? If you want something a bit out there that isn't in your face sparkles, Acid Pop is your polish.


Bluebell Bubblegum

Look at those circles! Like lilypads in a pond, they just want to float to the surface but something else always wants to come sit on top. There is infinite beauty in this little bottle, not least of all the incredible bluebell crelly base. There are all your basic glitter shapes in beautiful blue and silver with a generous smattering of iridescent glitters and a fine shimmer.

Like all big glitters those circles mostly needed to be fished out and placed where you want them but the extra 5 seconds that takes is so completely worth it. I'm head over heels for the colour alone!


Every Flavour Beans
Every Flavour Beans

No longer fictional, Every Flavour Beans are available for your eating pleasure (or vomit-induced nightmares) online and in some speciality stores. Every Flavour Beans makes for a pretty fabulous polish, using the rich purple and gold shimmer of the box then filled with a whole bunch of different coloured hexes and circles.

I do love the rainbow of glitter but I can't help but wish this was more of a jelly, but that's likely just personal preference as a jelly addict.

For all three above I used three thin coats and topped with a good thick top coat. Bluebell Bubblegum is the thirstiest of all due to the large circles, but careful placement will help avoid any real issues with edges sticking out.

Sugar Quill

This shiny little beauty just might be my favourite of the bunch. So much sparkle yet so little effort. Above, over China Glaze Ever Burgundy is two coats on my ring finger and one on the rest. The delicate silver bars flash tiny little rainbows here and there, the white and silver hexes shine away beautifully and then the translucent, iridescent hexes give a ghostly glow over the berry base.

Because I have to put every glitter over a dark base, I switched up and put two coats over the top of Essie Bobbing for Baubles. Total transformation! The iridescent glitters shine a vibrant bright blue, while everything else catches the light and shines on around them.


The Magic Treats collection is still available, with a discount if you buy the whole collection at once - I didn't buy the other two glitter toppers Licorice Wand or Levitating Sherbet Balls due to my aversion to star glitter, but if that's your thing then this collection should definitely be on your wishlist. 

Keep an eye out too, as Caitlin from Moonstone and Teneil from Shades of Phoenix have been working on a little collaboration based solely on Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans! Visit their Facebook pages I've linked just there and show them some love.

I'm off to satisfy my sweet tooth now, see you again soon!
