Hey y’all! I am so incredibly pumped to be sharing the Elfing Around Holiday 2016 debut collection from Moon Shine Mani created by Phoebe Moon! Phoebe is one of the sweetest most genuine people and definitely a huge inspiration for me, I am so excited for her to be creating her own line and I am so impressed with these first 6 shades. These were sent to me for review and will retail for $10-$11.

First up is Jovie which is described as a “cool-toned holiday red linear holographic, opaque in 1 coat.” Jovie has an amazing one coat formula with a super strong linear holographic effect, it did lean a little pink for me and I love it! This polish is also an awesome polish for stamping!

Next up is my top pick of the collection, Smiling’s My Favorite! Smiling’s My Favorite is described as a “warm antique gold metallic with micro scattered holographic, opaque in 1-2 coats.” This has a bit of a thicker formula but went on perfectly! I did do 2 coats for my swatches today but one coat also makes for amazing coverage! Smiling’s My Favorite also stamps beautifully and reminds me so much of the bright flash in a cat’s eye stone.

Next is Buddy The Elf which is described as a “metallic Christmas green with micro gold flakes, opaque in 1-2 coats.” Buddy The Elf went on very nicely in 2 coats, the gold flakes really shine against the metallic green base and almost makes for a slightly textured look!

Next up is Swirly Twirly Gumdrops which is described as a “mid-tone turquoise linear holographic, opaque in 1 coat.” This is such a fun bright color and the linear holographic effect is on fire! Swirly Twirly Gumdrops was opaque for me in 1 easy coat and also stamps like a champ!

Next up is my second most favorite, Very Purpley! Very Purpley is described as a “violet cream with infused gold shimmer, opaque in 2 coats.” This polish is just insanely gorgeous, the gold shimmer is incredibly strong and translates to the nail very well. Very Purpley was completely opaque for me in 2 coats ad is crazy beautiful when stamped over a black or dark background!

Lastly today I have The Naughty List which is described as a “blackened plum linear holographic, opaque in 2 coats.” The Naughty List was perfectly opaque for me in 1 coat, it stamps gorgeously, and looks amazing in the sunlight. I think The Naughty List as a delicate purple metallic shimmer going on it as well and I seriously couldn’t have enjoyed this polish more!
