A Moon Across The Sea: A sheer but build-able champagne colored holo with yellow-green-blue shifting iridescent glitters of varying sizes.
I wore three coats, two was just slightly too sheer for photos but I think would have been fine for wearing. The formula was fantastic and like a broken record I'm mentioning their stellar brushes. So soft and wonderful to apply polish with!

More about the inspiration:
The Moon of Baroda Diamond is a 24 carat pear shaped canary yellow diamond. It was originally part of the treasure of the Maharajas of Baroda, the royal family of Gaekwad for over 500 years. In 1860 it was fitted into a necklace and was sold to an unknown buyer in the 1920's. It was purchased by Meyer Rosenbaum in 1943 and displayed in an exhibition in 1944. In 1953 it was worn by Marilyn Monroe in the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes while she sang "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend". She also wore it during the promotional campaign of the movie and it was the largest diamond she ever wore in her lifetime. In 2008 it was displayed publicly at the Antwerp World Diamond Centre. The authentic Moon of Baroda is appraised at $1.9 million, however many replicas have been made of it and it's true location is now unknown. It is rumored that if the Moon of Baroda is carried across the sea, it brings back luck to it's owner.

Heading into the New Year, this is my last post for 2017! Such a beautiful polish to end and begin the New Year with! Happy Near Year all!
