Moonstone Nail Polish 'Long & Lost' collection

Hi lovelies!

I have some seriously fabulous polishes to show you today! Caitlin from Moonstone Nail Polish has created a gorgeous collection of delicately sparkling shades inspired by Florence and the Machine and I have all six swatched and ready to go on your must-buy list.


COSMIC LOVE

Moonstone Nail Polish - Cosmic Love | Long & Lost collection

A blue leaning purple with sparkle of cosmic proportions. This is packed with brightly shining holo glitters. It's much sparklier than my photos show - my notes on this were something along the lines of "sparkly! so sparkly!". 

Cosmic Love has a stunning formula and was perfectly opaque in two coats.

HEARTLINES

This beautiful white crelly definitely made my heart pitter patter. I have a soft spot for white crellies, and the pink and gold dots sealed the deal. There are also some smaller hexes, gold flakes and a generous pink shimmer that was hard to capture on camera, but is definitely evident on the nail.

I did 3 coats to reach full opacity, which also gives great depth. I did need two double up on top coat as circle glitters tend to be a bit chunkier than a regular glitter.

MY BEST DRESS

Moonstone Nail Polish - My Best Dress | Long & Lost collection

My Best Dress brings some metallic shine to the collection, in a golden champagne shade with a slight foil-like finish. Definitely a great colour for the fast approaching holiday season!

I was concerned on the first coat that this would be very sheer but by the 3rd coat there was no signs of VNL. The formula seems thin at first but applies well and builds smoothly and easily.

QUEEN OF PEACE

Moonstone Nail Polish - Queen of Peace | Long & Lost collection

This gorgeous, stunning, utterly beautiful colour is somewhere between a muted jade, pastel mint and robin's egg blue. Queen of Peace is loaded with iridescent flakes that make the base colour appear slightly different in different light. There's a lovely glassy reflectiveness in the flakes that lend an extra delicateness to the polish.

The formula on this worried me at first, the first two coats were quite patchy, but the third smoothed everything out nicely. It dries with a slight satin finish so it definitely benefits from a nice glossy top coat. I wore this shade for several days and it was very well wearing, no chipping or tip wear for over 3 days.

SPECTRUM

Moonstone Nail Polish - Spectrum | Long & Lost collection

So I really have to apologise for my utter inability to photograph holo anything, because this polish really deserves better. The super-micro-fine silver glitter base contains silver holo hexes and bars that seriously light up in every kind of light. This is how you do an amazing silver bar glitter cough*OPI*cough!! Spectrum absolutely lives up to it's name. As a bonus along with all that holo, it has a bit of electric pink shimmer that I utterly adore.

The best part is how easy the formula was to work with. Bar glitters are notoriously awful to work with, but it is absolutely not the case here. Everything spreads evenly across the nail, and the finish is level enough to only need one coat of top coat. I used three coats for my swatches.

SWEET NOTHING

Moonstone Nail Polish - Sweet Nothing | Long & Lost collection

Rounding out the collection is this soft lilac, all glittery and delicate. The small hexes are purposefully sparse, which I love, meaning you just get peeks of them here and there. I wasn't wowed by this one as I was with many of the others but it's still a beautiful shade.

Again I used three coats for full coverage, and just one coat of top coat for a smooth finish. Formula is totally fuss free and easy to use.
