H+M New Moon Swatch. This is a Flakie.

This is a polish I picked up in H+M. I spend a lot of time admiring the polishes in H+M but have never bought one before. I really like the look of some of their blues, although I couldn't tell you the names of the ones I'm picturing!

Anyway, I spotted this little gem which was in a different bottle to the standard H+M polishes. It's smaller and round. I spent ages just staring at it trying to figure out what I was actually looking at because it's gold and has the sparkle of glitter, but the pieces are distinctly flake like. Then I saw that the polish was only £1.50 so definitely worth a try and whatever it turned out to be, I'd have fun trying it!



Well it turns out that it is a flakie, a very pretty flakie. There's no duochromy colour changing tricksyness here, it's purely gold which I prefer. When I don't really know how to describe polishes, I just make up words and hope that you'll know what I mean!

By the way, it's called New Moon!
I dug out my much neglected extension tube (which is the cheap alternative to a macro lens) for some major close ups of this beauty.


I swatched one coat of H+M New Moon over A-England Lancelot and Cult Nails Time Traveler on the ring finger. I added one top coat of Essence Better Than Gel thanks to Bregje who sent me a few bottles from Europe after my cry for top coat help!




I was so impressed by this polish that I went straight back to H+M the next day to pick up a few bottles for a quick giveaway!

  3. I found another polish similar to this: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color--in Glass Slipper! It's clear with clear "glass" flakies (maybe hand-cut glitter??). It transforms any color....at least the ones we've tried! Thanks for showing this--I like the combination.
