Sonnetarium Daydreams and Moonbeams Swatch and Review

Hey guys, welcome to Thursday - which means it's Friday here on Claw of Cthulhu so I'll see y'all next week. I apparently still suck at scheduling my posts in advance but at least I am prepping everything in advance. Or something. Today I've got an indie polish from Sonnetarium, which I picked up from Beauty Pop Shop. I always somehow get nervous when buying from a new vendor online, but I received my order fairly quickly which is great.

So Sonnetarium has an exclusive Sailor Moon inspired collection to Beauty Pop Shop called the Moonlight Fight Collection. I've got one of the most coveted polishes from the collection today - Sonnetarium Daydreams and Moonbeams, which is a white crelly base with a mix of glitter - red hearts, gold and sky blue hexes, and red and gold speck glitters. Formula wise, it applies very well, but with glitter mixes like these, you want to be sure to fish out some of the heart for the final coat. I actually built up a base with Zoya Snow White, because I always want to make glitter application my number one priority, rather than having to focus on opacity building. Here's two and a half (half meaning there was a bit of fishing and touch-up) of Sonnetarium Daydreams and Moonbeams over a Zoya Snow White base. I added a top coat of Seche Vite for a glossy and even look:

This is by far, one of the best Sailor Moon inspired polishes out there today. I could see the inspiration from all three of the Moonlight Fight collection, but this one kills it for me. LOVE IT. The only problem is that it's hard to get your hands on it. I personally waited about 6 months before finally placing an order for it from Beauty Pop Shop. Also I would have loved to get a full sized bottle of this, so this is definitely going to be a "special occasion" polishes for me, as the bottles only contain 9mL.

Do you have any cool plans for the weekend? Why am I the only person who hasn't seen Pacific Rim? Anyway what do you think is your favourite Sailor Moon inspired polish? There's a few of em out there - what's your pick?

  1. I agree with you that this is one of the best for the theme, and I really like the mix. My fingers are, unfortunately, too skinny for shaped glitters, but I can still appreciate the beauty of them.

    I haven't seen Pacific Rim either so you're not alone!

    I don't have any cool plans for this weekend, we're taking it easy, which is also nice. There will definitely be some hot tubbing going on. :)

  2. Anytime I think of Sailor Moon I think of you, I agree with you that this is probably the best representation yet.
