Confetti Moonstruck

EDIT: I just woke up to find that I've reached 300 followers! THANK YOU! Unfortunately, I don't have a giveaway planned for this because I wasn't planning on reaching it so quickly, but I want you all to know how happy I am that so many of you enjoy what I do! And you can still enter the 200 follower giveaway here! Thank you all for your continued interest and support! :)

Confetti is a cheapy drugstore brand that CVS carries for $1.99. They have quite a few colors that look decent, but I was always hesitant to buy them because I wasn't sure how the formula would be. I got a coupon for CVS in my e-mail and naturally needed to use it so, for some strange reason, I grabbed Moonstruck.

Now, time for a little story. The China Glaze Anchors Away collection is responsible for my current obsession with nail polish. If you know me, you know I've been obsessed with anchors and nautical-themed things for years now, so it should be no shock to you that I loved this collection. However, I remember seeing Below Deck and thinking, "Ew, who would wear a color like that?"

Five months later, the answer is "me." Moonstruck reminds me very strongly of the photos I've seen of Below Deck and I love it. It's one of those weird, purple/gray/brown colors and it is the perfect medium-toned neutral. As for Confetti's formula, it's much better than I anticipated. I still had to use three coats for this mani, but they applied very well and dried relatively quick.


I used Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme to stamp the leopard print on my accent nails and dotted China Glaze Pool Party into some of the spots to make it more interesting. I am so happy with this one!

  1. I love colors like this! I think they're interesting because they can be interpreted as neutral but still a bit edgy. I have Below Deck and it's just lovely. I recently used Zoya's Jana and its one of those colors too, I can never get enough of them :)

  6. Super cute! Love the accent nails. I like how the colors aren't something I would think about using together, but it totally works. I love it!
