China Glaze Harvest Moon

Hi lovely readers! Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! <3

Today I have Harvest Moon, the second of two polishes I recently got from China Glaze's Capitol Colours Collection (inspired by The Hunger Games). Harvest Moon is full of gorgeous copper shimmer embedded in a brown base, invoking feelings of autumn and a plentiful harvest.






While Harvest Moon's base is brown, it does not look very much so on the nail due to its abundant shimmer. The shimmers are predominately copper, but they also flash gold and red, depending on the angle. Just like with Riveting, Harvest Moon is another where the shimmer is so strong that the polish looks like it's glowing from within. This is the perfect color for autumn, when the leaves have changed colors and I'm snuggled up in a warm furry sweater.

The formula on this is lovely. It's smooth and buttery, and it goes on the nail without any dragging or pooling. It has great color payoff and is opaque in two coats. Wait time between coats is reasonably short due to its fast dry time.

It's hard not to love this color. It's unique and glowy, and it's got the most awesome name! Do any of you guys remember the Nintendo game series with the same name? You could raise farm animals like sheep and cows, and depending on how well you brushed them, they would give you various quality wool and milk, which you could then spin into yarn and make into cheese. Ah, such an adorable game! After reminiscing, I'll have to find it and play it again. :-)

You can find Harvest Moon (the polish) at your local nail salons, at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty, and online at select beauty retailers.

    The color is so pretty, but then... I would probably love anything that's close to the orange family ;-)
