China Glaze Harvest Moon debuted this spring with the other "Hunger Games" Colours from the Capitol polishes, but it screams fall in my mind. I mean ... just look at the name. Supposedly it represents District 9's main contribution, grain. To me, Harvest Moon was one of the standouts from the Colours in the Capitol collection, which really says something because I usually can't pull off colors like this. It's not too warm or too cool for me, the formula was perfect, and I LOVE the foil finish.
Three coats with SV.
I bought my bottle of Harvest Moon at Sally's at the end of February, but you might be able to find it on clearance there. And it's really not HTF online at all.
So remember when I said I picked up three of the new LE FingerPaints fall polishes? (I posted Fall-ing for You last week.) Bet you didn't think I'd pick up a GLITTER, didja?
Yeah, neither did I. But look here ...
This is three coats of Fall of Surprises! with SV and without any base coat. There are two types of glitter in Fall of Surprises, a larger hex glitter and regular smaller glitter. It covers quite well on the nail, more fully than the Essie Luxeffects glitters or even the Sephora by OPI glitters, and if anything, you might have to take care not to overload your brush. It doesn't dry completely smooth on the nail, though I don't think it's anything Gelous + SV couldn't fix, and that's better than having it bumpy or gritty, amirite? To better give you an idea of its coverage, the pinky finger is one coat, the ring finger is two coats, and the middle finger is three coats.
Here are some more pictures of Fall of Surprises! at three coats with SV and no base coat.
Now here's what it looks like over Harvest Moon ...
ONE coat of Fall of Surprises! + one coat SV over three coats of Harvest Moon.
Let's just say I plan to wear this combo again in the fall, every fall from now on.
