NOTD: Revlon Moon Candy Cosmic

A little change in schedule again, so it's NOTD Monday today :) This is one of the shades from Revlon's Moon Candy Nail Art line - Cosmic.
Since the display is now at our Walmart, I figured it's the right time to show it to you.
The Moon Candy nail polish are dual-ended bottles, which house a base colour on one end and a flakie top coat on the other. The tubes are only 0.26oz/ 7.68ml for both ends, retail $8.96 each.
Cosmic is eye catching because of this dusty olive shade, and I just know I have to have it. This is 2 coats, could use another coat for full opacity. I like this type of colour, dark enough but not black.
And this is with the Nail art shade on top. The flakes are chunkier than those in Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure and the likes, look like shards of glass on the nails.
The base is clear but a little thick. I applied 2 coats (with dabbing motions) for denser appearance, and it feels thick on the nails afterward. I already added some drops of nail polish thinner on this end of the tube.
Gold flakes on dusty olive green? Pretty, I must say!
Close up, with indirect flash. These flakies are just too beautiful to look at, and I'm glad the beauty transferred equally to the nails.
Under certain lighting and angle, the flakes look gold and orange alternatively, exactly like Hidden Treasure, just a little bolder and visible.
I'm digging this type of packaging for travel, and the option to pair either of these 2 shades with other nail polish is endless. The only thing I was not happy about with Cosmic was the imperfect brush one end had. It flared out awkwardly, I might have to cut off part of it.
Last pic, with direct flash to show you the intensity of the flakes. Told you I like it dense :)
All in all, despite a few flaws, Cosmic is cool. I like the colour range offered in this line. I only got 2 shades, but if there's a sale in the future, I might grab more :)
What do you think about these Moon Candy tubes? Have you tried any shades? Thoughts?
Happy Monday!
