Nail MADNESS - And the Moonbeams... / She Walks in Beauty

Goddamnit, A-England.  Every time you release a new nail polish, I have to buy it.  Don't you understand I've got bills and stuff?  Whyyyy must you do this to me?

The Heavenly Quotes collection is inspired by quotations from famous works, and apparently Adina, the lass behind A-England, is just as much of a lit dork as your humble author.  And the Moonbeams... is inspired by Shelly's poem Love's Philosophy.  It's a really light lemony base with glass-fleck glitter that makes it literally look like a moonbeam on a summery evening.

See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;

No sister flower would be forgiven,

If it disdained it's brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Then there's She Walks in Beauty.  Inspired by Byron's poem of the same name, She Walks in Beauty has a gorgeous sheer rose gold base with rose gold glitter of varying sizes.  I can't wait to put this on top of a black or a dark color, but I just went ahead and put it on top of And the Moonbeams... so I could show you guys.

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
  Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
  Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light         
  Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
