Hey y’all! Today I have the second collection coming from Moon Shine Mani by Phoebe Moon. This is the Berry Good New Year Trio releasing January 13th and I am so in love with these red berry shades! These were sent to me for review, when testing for stamping I did find that they picked up pretty easily but will definitely pop over white or lighter colors better than darker bases.

First up is Ambition Inspired which Phoebe described as a “fiery strawberry with blazing gold spark and gold scattered holographic.” Ambition Inspired is everything I look for in a perfect toe color, it is a bright, sexy orange base red with a good amount of sparkle going on! This was so close to being opaque for me in one coat but I have done two for my swatches today. The formula was fantastic and smooth and dried fairly quickly.

Next is Strength To Persevere, which is described as a “rich, warm cranberry with a bright garnet spark.” This is such a deep warm chocolatey red and I love the shimmer! Strength To Persevere had another really great formula that was completely opaque for me in 2 coats, it does have a little bit of a tendency to leave brush strokes so just be mindful when painting!

The last polish of this trio is Courage To Continue which is described as a “purple-leaning raspberry with strong violet spark.” Courage to Continue had another super easy 2 coat formula and this one showed up the best when stamped over darker colors. The violet shimmer in this shade is a beautiful inner glow but again you may want to mindful of your brush strokes.
