Hi everybody! I have a crazy exciting blog post today. I was lucky enough to get to play with a bunch of beautiful of pretties from Moonflower Polish, a brand new indie offering 5-free stamping polishes!
Moonflower Polish is the invention of Nadia Velez. She may be new to polish-making but I’m betting you’ve seen her nails around – she’s been an active blogger and swatcher herself for many years now.
The Rainbow Cremes collection is described as “an artist palette of 10 colors inspired by the rainbow (plus a few extras!) to cover all your basic stamping needs.” And she isn’t messing around!
From L to R: Rojo, Anaranjado, Amarillo, Azul, Verde, Violeta, Marrón, Gris, Turquesa, Rosa
In addition to the 10 creme polishes, there is the Day & Night Duo, which consists of a black and a white stamping polish.
L-R: Dia (White) and Noche (Black)
As you can see, the names are all the Spanish words for the colours. Let’s get into the swatches shall we?
Rojo is a vivid cherry red. It was easy to work with and stamped easily over black. You can see how vibrant it is over white as well!!
Anaranjado is a bright beautiful orange. Anyone that knows me knows that I am forever on the search for an orange creme polish that will stamp over black. I mean for years I’ve been looking!!! And wow look at Anaranjado! It’s truly stunning!! I can’t wait to see all of the amazing Halloween manis I will be creating this year!! Orange is definitely one of my favourite colours to wear (year-round). I will be needing a few backups of this one!
Amarillo is a warm sunny yellow. I’m not normally a fan of yellow polishes, but I think this may very well be the happiest polish I have ever seen. It truly does look like sunshine in a bottle!!
Azul is a super vibrant cobalt blue. When I put this on my nail I was immediately reminded of OG Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. It’s intense and very opaque. I chose this pattern to stamp with because it reminded me of the famous Delft Blue Dutch China.
I added some accents with Anaranjado because the two just seemed to go together!
Verde is a very opaque medium green. Green is another colour that sometimes loses its vibrancy and opacity when you stamp with. Definitely not the case here.
Violeta is a bright purple. Super opaque and very vibrant even over a dark base.
Marrón is a gorgeous chocolate brown – and it really does look like chocolate!!! Intensely opaque.
Oh look I added a Pusheen the cat using Gris and Noche!
Gris is a medium gray. I love how soft this polish reads, yet it doesn’t sacrifice any of its opacity to do so. Beautiful.
Turquesa is a bright teal/aqua. What can I say besides WOW!!!!! This one absolutely glows.
Rosa (Berry Pink)
As the name suggests, Rosa is as a berry pink. This is a great staple in your stamping polish arsenal. I love how this isn’t just your everyday pink – it definitely has lovely depth to it!
And then I took the concept behind The Rainbow Cremes Collection (that it’s an artists’ palette) and ran with it, creating some additional looks below:
I love how this looks sort of like a watercolor!! I used Rojo, Verde, and Anaranjado:
Then I added a matte top coat:
I created a stamped gradient with Turquesa, Amarillo, and Rosa, and inadvertently created a few other colours through the blending process (which was the creator’s intent!)!!
And with matte top coat:
Gorgeous fall leaves using Marrón, Rojo, Amarillo, and Anaranjado:
Clearly I had a lot of fun with these polishes!
Day and Night Duo
Rounding out this fabulous collection is the Day and Night Duo. These are white (Dia) and black (Noche) stamping polishes, a staple in any stamping fan’s collection.
Black and white are my most-used stamping polishes – these were very opaque and it was easy to stamp even fine-line images!
This is a fabulous collection of creme stamping polishes! With these two collections you pretty much have your needs covered. They are all highly opaque, and I personally didn’t experience any staining with them. I used a variety of stampers when using them (Creative Shop, Bornprettystore clear silicone stamper, Pueen round stamper) on a variety of plates, and was successful with all of them. The polishes do dry quickly, especially when using plates with a lot of fine details on them, but nothing that would cause a problem when stamping. All polishes removed easily with non-acetone remover.
