Emerald & Ash Moonlit Snow Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today was technically the first day of spring but nature doesn't seem to agree.  There's still lots of snow to be seen when I look outside.  I figured since it *hopefully* won't be around for much longer I better show you a snow inspired polish before it's too late.  Today I have Emerald & Ash Moonlit Snow, an awesome shimmery topper, to show you.
 

Moonlit Snow is packed with shimmery microflakes that have flashes of silver, blue and purple. The formula was great and one coat gave great coverage.  I used it as a topper but based on the coverage from one coat I think this polish would layer up really nicely too.  Photos show one coat of Moonlit Snow over SOPI Go My Own Way with one coat of CND Super Shiney in natural sunlight.




After a day of wearing this I thought to myself "I wonder what this would look like matte" and so I decided to find out.  Here is the same mani with an added coat of Julep matte top coat.  The resulting look really reminds me of denim.



So what do you think?  This polish definitely reflects the look of fresh shimmering snow on a clear winter night.  I really want to see what this look likes by itself now too.  The microflakes are dense enough that I think it could come close to being opaque with a non-ridiculous number of coats.  You can find Emerald & Ash at:

Happy polishing!
