Tina and Lucy: Moonstone

Here is part two of the Tina and Lucy polish reviews, and this morning I've got Moonstone to show you!  

First off, let me just say that Moonstone is by far the most frustrating polish to try to photograph; it's much prettier in person.  Moonstone is a seafoam-leaning-army-green, with glassy flakies throughout.  The effect is very subtle even in person, which is why it was very difficult to capture on my camera.  If you look closely in the pictures, you can see on some of my nails the flash of the flakies when the light hits it just right.  

Formula on this one was relatively sheer.  I had on two coats of OPI Barre My Soul (very sheer nude polish) before I did this, and decided to keep it on to minimize the number of coats I'd need of Moonstone to not have any visible nail line.  This is three thin coats of Moonstone, followed by two coats of Seche Vite.  I did need two coats of Seche Vite because some of the flakies didn't lie flat on my nail.  Application was very easy and the flakies were spread evenly.  

You can see the flakies better in the bottle:

I feel like this colour shouldn't look good with my skin tone, but I really like it so I don't care; I'll wear it anyways.  This polish is definitely very unique among the masses of glitter-bombs that you see from most indie sellers; I really like the subtle effect. 

You can buy Tina and Lucy polish at their Etsy shop, and like their Facebook page for updates.  Their store is temporarily closed, but it'll be open again soon! 

Disclaimer: The product in this post was sent to me for review and my honest opinion. 


  1. Wow this is gorgeous! I like the subtlety of it:)

  2. Lovely colour! It does remind me a precious stone, those flakies just make it :) I think it sits fine with your skin tone
