Indie Swatch and Review - Rainbow Cremes and Day and Night Duo by Moonflower Polish

Press Samples

Hello lovely readers. Today I'm thrilled to introduce you to the debut collection from 5-free, stamping nail polish indie maker Moonflower Polish. Continue reading after the jump for the release of The Rainbow Cremes stamping polish collection and the Day and Night duo. 


Nadia, the lovely and talented blogger behind Mama ❤️s Polish, said that she set out to create an artist palette of 10 rainbow-inspired colors (with a few liberties, of course!). Per Nadia:
• The cremes are carefully crafted by hand in small batches, so small variation in color may occur. 
• Some of the colors have a matte finish, are highly pigmented, and may stain. 
• The colors blend nicely with each other so that you can create custom shades or use them for gradients or with     nail vinyls. 
• The polishes are named in Spanish (Nadia is a fellow Puerto Rican!) with the English name in parentheses. 
• The collection has been designed to be thicker than regular polish, and not really meant to be used as regular polish. 

Rainbow Cremes 
For the debut collection, Moonflower Polish is unveiling a 10-piece multi-color creme collection called The Rainbow Cremes. 

For the first nail art set, I used a stamping plate from Pet'la plates to highlight the ability to pick up fine lines. I also used the original clear jelly stamper. One my accent nail, I stamped with Night (black stamping creme from the Day and Night Duo) over white, and then stamped with the rainbow creme. All nail art was sealed with a glossy top coat.

For the second nail art set, I used a stamping plate from It Girl plates to highlight the ability to pick up a pattern that leaves little room for mistakes. I also used a medium soft stamper from FabUrNails. Again on my accent nail, I stamped with Night (black stamping creme from the Day and Night Duo) over white, and then stamped with the rainbow creme. All nail art was sealed with a glossy top coat.

Turquesa - a turquoise stamping creme. Nadia points out that this polish does have teeny tiny microparticles of pigment that can be seen in the bottles but they shouldn’t show up in the final stamped designs. I can attest that there were no particles on my final art! I actually did not notice any particles in my sample bottle.

Day and Night Duo
This is a white and black stamping creme duo that will also be part of the debut. 

For this last nail art set, I used a stamping plate from Moyou London plates to highlight again the ability to pick up a pattern that leaves little room for mistakes. I used the medium soft stamper from FabUrNails again. I also stamped a pair of love birds on my accent nail using the Rojo and Rosa cremes. All nail art was sealed with a glossy top coat.

Overall, I love this collection. The colors are all gorgeous, and the polishes performed beautifully with a range of stamping plates and stampers. Due to the nature of these polishes and the high pigmentation, you may have some staining around your cuticles. It was more noticeable with the yellow and blue cremes and recommend you use a barrier like liquid latex if you would like to avoid it as much as possible. Please note that I did not use any type of barrier and was still able to remove the excess pigmentation around my cuticles with pure accent. Last, although you may be temped to use these as regular polishes, these were not designed to be worn as regular polish and may stain your nails if you do so.

  11. I know how hard she worked on this line so it's so neat to see it come together. I hated when M Polishes left so it's great to see another company fill the void of great stamping polish!
