Monster Mixers & Elixirs Lunar Lake Review & Swatches

I have a little bit of down time today and tomorrow before the moving insanity begin so of course I wanted to some swatches! I received Monster Mixers & Elixirs Lunar Lake and King's Cup (will have a post on this one tomorrow) to review for everyone! :)

A little backstory on Monster Mixers & Elixirs, the lovely lady, Melissa, that runs Be Someone Cute on Copious decided to open up a "franken" polish shop. You can find the Monster Mixers & Elixirs shop here. It stocks a ton of great glitters to create your own glitter creation as well as, already mixed polishes! 
Lunar Lake is sold as a glitter top coat to add some sparkle to any color. Since I never like to play by the rules, I decided to try this color out by itself. I did include the color over black in my swatches for comparison, though. :)

Lunar Lake is a single, holographic, dark teal glitter in a clear base.
My thumb is 1 coat of Lunar Lake, my index finger 2 coats, my middle finger 3 coats and my ring finger 4 coats. My pinky is 2 coats of Lunar Lake over Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris. All have no base coat and a top coat of Seche Vite. 
The formula on this polish is perfect! I didn't have to "fish" for any glitters, it dried quickly and I didn't have to shake the bottle to achieve a lot of glitters on the brush. Basically, this polish is a glitter lovers dream! The color is gorgeous, it's a perfect mix between a darker blue and green. The holographic factor just adds to it being a great glitter polish. I prefer this color all by itself even though, I know that's not everyone's cup of tea. ;) It does look just as wonderful over black too!

Monster Mixers & Elixirs Lunar Lake can be purchased through Monster Mixers & Elixirs' store here. As I mentioned above the owner, Melissa, also runs a Copious store that stocks a variety of different brands and colors. You can find that Copious store, Be Someone Cute, here. Make sure to like Be Someone Cute on Facebook here, Melissa always has something fun going on there!
