From the Maker:
When I asked Jenalyn if she wanted to collab with me, I showed her a few song lyrics and the colors I had in mind and then I also asked to assign colors to what she feels when she’s depressed and happy. She provided me with some pictures to help explain her emotions in color form, and this is what we settled on. The colors represent both the good and the bad.
Moonflower Polish Do You Love Me
Do You Love Me is described as a dusty blue with gray microflakes and pink-red-gold shimmer. Nice smooth quick drying formula. Reaches full opacity in 2 easy coats. Sealed with glossy top coat.
Inspired by Jenalyn’s long time boyfriend, specifically an old shirt of his that she loves. It’s calming and helps to center her. He is her rock and main source of support, yet she can’t help wondering if he really loves her.
Inspired by the song of the same name as well as a picture Jenalyn took. When we are struggling, the world feels all gray and heavy, it feels like there are no more options but one.
Moonflower Polish A Million Thoughts
A Million Thoughts is described as a greenish teal base with red-green-copper shimmer. For this one I used 3 coats. Two coats is enough for opacity but an extra coat deepens the color. Sealed with glossy top coat.
“This color represent my personal struggles with anxiety. Depression comes and goes but anxiety is always there for me. It often feels like I have a million thoughts in my head, all at the same time, a million worries and what ifs. Teal is my favorite color and very representative of me, it’s the color fo the ocean of my Caribbean home (I’m from Puerto Rico originally), it’s the color I had on my hair for a while (but it’s purple now), it’s everything to me, it keeps me grounded.” ~ Nadia
Moonflower Polish One More Light
One More Light is described as a dusty purple holo with red to green color shifting shimmer. Definitely my personal favorite. The perfect purple with a glorious shimmer! This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
“Inspired by the Linkin Park of the same name, this song is what has kept me alive on my worst days. The chorus goes “Who cares if one more light goes out? In a sky of a million stars, it flickers, flickers. Who cares when someone’s time runs out? If a moment is all we are. We’re quicker, quicker. Who cares if one more light goes out? Well I do” It reminds me that people do care about me, and I care about them. It shows the purpose of the collection, not just to raise awareness but to let others who are also suffering that we are here, there are lots of us, and we care.” ~ Nadia
Moonflower Polish Heart and Soul
Heart and Soul is described as a wine jelly base with holo, purple-blue iridescent glitters, and purple-blue shimmers. Another shade that you just can’t help but to love. This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
This color represent my kids, they are the reason I’m still alive today, they reason I get up in the morning and fight. My son is 5 and his favorite color is red, my daughter is 10 and her favorite color is purple.
Overall I was very impressed with this collection. The first thing I noticed was the nice variety of shades with holo, shimmers, and flakes galore. They feature a nice wide brush which makes application a breeze. I found them all to have a consistently smooth easy fast drying formula.
