A big post for you today! I have a review of the entire Magic Treats collection from Moonstone Nail Polish! This will be very picture heavy so pop down to Honeydukes and grab your favourite sweets!
The Magic Treats collection is based on the lollies that you would find in Honeydukes, the magical sweet shop found in Hogsmeade in the Harry Potter universe. The collection consists of 3 glitter toppers and 3 jelly/crelly shades.
The collection was released on [moonstonenailpolish.com] on the 24th February. It will be on sale from the 24/02/14 until the 03/03/14 with 20% off for purchases of the full collection and 10% off for the individual shades.
First up is Sugar Quill, an elegant glitter topper with white, iridescent and silver hex with holographic silver micro bars. Inspired by it's namesake, a delicate sugar-spun sweet made into the shape of a quill. I used 1 coat over Zoya Evvie.
Next we have Levitating Sherbet Balls, a glitter topper, is inspired by Fizzing Whizbees, sour sherbet balls that cause you to float a few inches above the ground! Levitating Sherbet Balls is bursting with neon pink, holographic silver, and white stars. It also has an assortment of pink, white, yellow, and iridescent hex with a scattering of pastel yellow dots and a pink/gold shifting glassfleck shimmer throughout. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada. I freaking LOVE this colour combo.
Last of the glitter toppers is Licorice Wand. It is packed with silver holographic stars, black squares, an assortment of silver, gunmetal, and holo black hex, with a silver shimmer dust throughout. I used 1 coat over Zoya Carly.
Now the crelly shades! My personal favourite ( I can't help it, it's green!), Acid Pop! Inspired by the lollipop that burns a hole in your tongue (sounds fun!), is a yellow-toned apple green crelly with neon green, neon yellow, and white hex with gold dots and a subtle yellow shimmer. I used 3 coats, but you could get away with 2 if you don't mind a tiny bit of visable nail line.
Next is Bluebell Bubblegum, another favourite. Inspired by Drooble's Best Blowing Gum, a magical bubblegum that produces bluebell coloured bubbles that refuse to pop for days. It has a bluebell crelly/creme base with a blue shimmer and is filled with large circles in holo silver and ocean blue, as well as some smaller dots, hex, and squares in an assortment of blue, aqua and iridescent glitter.3 coats here as well, but could get away with 2.
Last but no least is Every Flavour Beans! Inspired by the famous Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans! This popular wizarding treat is seemingly innocent jellybeans that can be pleasant (think strawberry milkshake or banana split!) and they can also be horrible (like dirt or tripe). They really do come in every flavour imaginable and this polish reflects that aspect in that it has 15 different coloured hex and circles! The base is a royal purple jelly with a soft gold shimmer throughout. 3 easy coats.
Overall I really like this collection. A couple of the polishes where a little thin but not difficult to work with. The crelly bases do require a couple of coats to build up the colour, but it is definitely worth it and you get a really nice depth to the glitter.
