Hi loves! It’s the first day of December so bring on the Holiday collections. Today I’m sharing with you a super special post. My YouTube bestie, Phoebe Moon, has launched her very own nail polish brand, Moon Shine Mani!!! The debut collection is a 6 piece set inspired by her favorite Christmas movie, ELF. This is the 2016 Elfing Around Holiday Collection.
Moon Shine Mani is Phoebe’s very own indie brand. She is the mastermind behind this amazing collection. It brings me great joy to share my swatches and review of this beautiful polish! I teamed up with my friend Kellie Gonzo for this collection launch. You can check out her review + gorgeous swatches here.
Let’s take a look at each polish in this collection and I’ll give you all of the details of the brand and where to purchase at the end.
BUDDY THE ELF
This is a metallic Christmas green filled with micro gold flakies. The formula was thick but manageable and it covered completely in 2 easy coats.
This beauty was named after the main character in the movie ELF, Buddy.
This is a cool toned holiday red linear holo. WOW!!! This beauty is a one coat wonder! I’m in love 🙂 This applied like butter.
I’m feeling major Christmas vibes with this one. It’s named after Buddy’s love interest in the movie.
SMILING’S MY FAVORITE
This is a warm antique gold metallic with micro scattered holo. The formula was perfect. Smooth and opaque in 2 coats.
I wore top coat on all of my swatches so it’s definitely recommended to bring out the beauty of each color. This one is named after one of Buddy’s quirky sayings from the movie.
This is a violet creme infused with gold shimmer. What a beauty! The formula was phenomenal. This polish literally glows in the sun. Here is 2 coats.
The shift on this is beautiful and you can see it both indoors and outdoors. It’s named after a scene in the movie when Buddy compliments a lady’s very purpley dress.
I even applied a coat of matte top coat to this just to see what it would look like. It’s gorgeous glossy or matte!
THE NAUGHTY LIST
This is a blackened plum linear holo. OH MY! This one takes my breath away. Super easy to apply, opaque in 2 coats.
I think my heart melted a bit when I saw this beauty in direct sunlight! He’s a stunner!! This one is named after the part in the movie when Buddy realizes his father is on the naughty list.
SWIRLY TWIRLY GUMDROPS
This is a mid tone turquoise linear holo. Another fantastic formula and holo polish! Phoebe is killing me with these linear holos!!!
This beauty was almost opaque in 1 coat but I did 2 here for good measure. It’s named after Buddy’s description of the sea while he traveled from the North Pole to New York City.
I’ve also created a live application video on my YouTube channel in case you’re interested in seeing these in action. Check it out:
