Hits Moonbow

Hi guys! Long time no see, sorry. I know the blog is a little neglected but I have a plan to go back to a regular schedule ;)

So today I want to share with you one of the polishes that I got from an amazing friend that I met on MUA. I recently got Essence polishes in my city and, since this brand is not available in Brazil, we did a little swap.

Hits Moonbow is part of the Phenomena collection, which is a series of multichromatic glitters (I hope to share the rest with you in the future). Moonbow was the one that really drawn me to try first, as it flashes in so many colors in the bottle.

For this mani I layered 2 coats of Moonbow over Essence Galactic Black (a shimmery black, but the shimmer is lost under the glitter). At first Moonbow looks like a shimmery green, but as you turn your hand you'll see blue, purple and even orange/gold peeking out. It is truly a dream.

The glitter was also very dense, I got a great coverage in only two coats. It's also not very bumpy/gritty, one coat of Gelous plus my regular quick dry top coat (Sally Hansen Insta Dri) left if glass smooth.

I love how there are this random specks of color that shine different than the others. In the above picture, in the bottle you can see some small green glitters where it shines purple. Likewise you can see some tiny gold/purple sparks when the green is predominant.

To wrap things up, I love this polish! This is my first time wearing black nail polish and it was totally worth it. It's a good thing I don't drive, I would have cause an accident because I just can't stop staring at my nails. I'm really grateful that my friend send this collection to me, thank you! :)

And thanks to you for reading!
