Hey you guys, today I have a swatch and review of the Primetime Lovers collection, available now from Moon Shine Mani by Phoebe Moon! This collection is made of 3 sets of companion polishes based on 3 of Phoebe’s favorite shows, these were sent to me for review and I have so many favorites! These polishes will retail for $11-$12 each.

First up is my top pick of the entire collection! This is Wild Card Wanda and it is inspired by Temperance Brennan from Bones. It is described as a “ruddy peach linear holographic is also complimented with sparkling gold shimmer.” This polish really toed the line between being a 2 and 3 coater, I honestly feel like it only needed 2 but all of my swatches show 3 today. Wild Card Wanda goes on super smooth and has a very strong linear holographic effect which when paired with all of the gold shimmer makes for an incredible finish!

Next up is Wild Card Wanda’s companion polish, Big River Buck! Big River Buck is inspired by Seeley Booth from Bones and is described as a “rich chocolate cream with fuchsia and mauve shimmers.” I love how rich and warm the tones in this polish are! Big River Buck is a little on the thicker side but had amazing coverage at just 1 coat with full opacity at 2.

Next up is She’s Not Rachem which is inspired by Rachel Green from Friends. This polish is described as a “soft sea green cream base with coordinating sea green shimmer. The formula is also freckled with rainbow iridescent flakies.” The finish on She’s Not Rachem is just gorgeous, with the added iridescent flakies it just sends me right over the edge. Perfect opacity in 2 easy coats.

She’s Not Rachem’s companion polish is The Divorce Force which is inspired by Ross. The Divorce Force is described as a “black jelly base of this polish [that] nestles as much sea green shimmer as I could pack in.” This is such a deep vampy shade and I love all of the shimmer micro flakies. This polish screams mermaid to me, amirite?  I had complete coverage at 3 coats here.

Next is Bob The Restaurateur and let me tell you, this polish is just about everything I dream for in a cream polish! It is inspired by Bob Belcher from Bob’s Burgers and is described as a “a slightly deeper, dustier cornflower cream with the same blue shimmer running throughout.” Bob The Restaurateur had beautiful coverage at 1 coat but was completely opaque for me in 2, it is a super pigmented polish but i had no staining when swatched with a base coat.

The last polish I have today is Nagatha Christie and this is another fave of mine. It’s described as a “bright cornflower crelly base packed with gold and blue shimmers and iridescent hex glitters that shift from red to gold to green. ” 2 coats makes for beautiful coverage but I did opt to go in for a 3rd for my swatches today to add even more flakies and depth to the final look!
