Hello lovely readers! Happy fall and haunting season! I’m taking a break from autumnal activities to bring you swatches of the beautiful just released Gemstones Collection (Pt. 1) from my favourite indie stamping brand Moonflower Polish!
The Gemstones collection consists of 5 ultra-holographic polishes that can be worn alone as a regular polish or stamped over both light and dark bases. I have swatches of all three for you! Each polish is named after the stunning gemstone that inspired it (both the Spanish and English words) except for Oro/Gold, which is of course a precious metal.
All of the swatches below are two coats plus top coat. The formula was beautiful to work with, no brush strokes and self-levelled easily!
For the stamped swatches, I used the Uberchic Beauty Halloween 02 plate and the Clear Jelly Stamper Big Bling XL stamper. The bases are China Glaze Liquid Leather (black) and OPI Alpine Snow (white).
Let’s get into the swatches shall we?
Diamante (Diamond) is a slightly darkened silver holographic that shows up beautifully over both light and dark.
Oro (Gold) is a STUNNING yellow gold holo. Don’t tell the others but I think this one is my favourite. I think gold holos this intensely pigmented are few and far between and I love how it stamps over black. I even used my favourite image from the Uberchic plate for it.
Obsidiana (Obsidian) is a blue-leaning black holographic polish. This one glows over black but in my opinion it just shines over white!
Amatista (Amethyst) is a red-leaning purple holo. I love how the red undertones gives this polish a warm feel!
Aguamarina (Aquamarine) is an intense aqua/teal holo. I love the glow in this one and I think the little witch legs were a perfect stamp choice!
Now I know this isn’t a Halloween collection per say, but I must point out that the Halloween season was a perfect choice for this release! While these colours work equally year-round for every season, I found it particularly inspiring for my Halloween manis, and you’ll see them popping up on a few manicures this month!
