Moonflower Polish Polish Pickup 1990s! May 2018

Moonflower Polish I Just Can't Wait is a pastel neon coral stamping polish with purple-to-green duochrome shimmers, purple-to-gold aurora pigments, and blue-gold duochrome microflakes. It will cover in one or two coats as a regular polish. As to be expected, it is on the thicker side due to it being intended for stamping, but it definitely works as a regular shade, too. It dries matte but is shown here with top coat. It tends to dry down slightly warmer and less pink than it appears in the bottle.

Loosely based in the I Just Can’t Wait to be King scene from the Lion King, where everything turns into fun neonish colors.
Why? Short version is because I'm a huge Disney movie fan in general and The Lion King was one of my 1st big obsessions as a kid in the 90s.
Price: $10

Sales capped at 50 bottles - be on your toes at opening!

Here is I Just Can't Wait stamped over Moonflower Polish Sweet Dreams using the Über Chic Girl Bits stamping plate and a clear jelly stamper. Even though jelly stampers can be tricky, it picked up well though the stamper tended to want to keep hold of the polish, which is pretty normal for me. It is super opaque even over a dark color and the shimmers come out in the fine lines.
