I was recently contacted by Candace, founder and ceo of the indie polish maker, Mosi Mei in regards to reviewing their products. I am so thrilled she did! I was immediately delighted to see the square-shaped bottles, high-end packaging and attention to detail. The company has a lot to offer and that’s including nail treatments such as base coat, top coats and matte which I tested along with the first four shades. I have many more coming so stay tuned. For today I’ll be sharing some fall appropriate shades. I’m going to preface the first four shades with a rundown of the basic nail treatments. Let’s take a look!
Mosi Mei offers four nail treatments. From left: Base Coat, Shine topcoat, Glass topcoat and Matte topcoat.
Descriptions of the treatments:
SHINE – A high shine finish.
I am the perfect top coat to add strength and a chip resistant top layer to any nail hue. I dry quickly and help keep MOSI MEI nail hues on 2x3X longer. You only need to apply 1 coat of SHINE top coat and you are ready to go!
formula: créme finish: high shine type: clear
GLASS – A ultra high shine, gel-like wet look finish. I am the perfect top coat to any nail hue for a mega unique wet look effect. Formulated to be used with nail hues for a 2-3X longer lasting and chip resistant finish. Quick drying and lush looking. Look no further for your perfect top coat. Oh, and I do dry clear – don’t be fooled by my pink tone. You only need to apply 1 coat of GLASS top coat and you are ready to go!
formula: créme finish: ultra shine type: clear
BASE – A solid and grounding base for all nail hues. I am the perfect foundation to add strength and long-lasting staying power that help nail hues last 2-3X longer.
You only need to apply 1 coat of BASE base coat and you are ready for your favorite nail hue!
formula: créme finish: satin type: sheer
MATTE – A velvety luxe finish.
I am the perfect top coat to any nail hue if you want a matte, sleek and urban luxe look to your nail hue. You can apply me to metallic, satin, and gloss nail hues and I will change their appearance to a smooth velvet finish. Formulated to be used with nail hues for a 2-3X longer lasting and chip resistant lifespan. Quick drying and sleek. You only need to apply 1 coat of MATTE top coat and you are ready to go!
formula: créme finish: matte type: sheer
Now for the fun part! Here are the first four shades in this series:
Perfect fall shades, from left: Feisty, Tough, Creative and Edgy.
First up is Feisty. And this red wonder is so glossy, it’s blinding!
Feisty is a blood red creme bordering on a crelly. Only needs two coats, highly pigmented and glides on like a dream. She’s seriously breathtaking!
Next up is Creative. If you love purple with shimmer, this one’s for you!
Creative is the perfect name for this shimmery purple with it’s satiny finish. Note: I wanted you to see how nicely the Matte topcoat works and it’s on the pointer finger. The Shine topcoat is on the ring finger while the middle and pinky show you how it looks alone.
Want the perfect patent leather black? Here is Tough!
Tough is so shiny, I giggled! Love this perfect black.
Last is Edgy… a shimmery brown.
Edgy is a coffee bean brown with shimmer. Yum!
Mosi Mei says, “Mosi Mei is whoever you are, wherever you are, never defined by one style and always inspired by color, we think everyone is a Mosi Mei!” And MM lacquers come in a wide range of formulas and finishes including cremes, glitters, satins, metallics and effects. They “…make what we love, with love…because passion and creation are what we live for, no exceptions.” MM says they exist “to share our love for color and everything it does for the spirit.” I can’t agree more. Imagine a black and white world with no texture and color. Indeed, that my dears, is why we paint!
Some cool facts Candace told me about Mosi Mei! “Although we are fairly new we have been featured on Hautelook, and in Wantable boxes for a few different months, and have some press coming out in the coming months as well. We will be in quite a few subscription boxes next year and are excited about some retail locations we will soon announce.” I see big things for this amazing company. Indies rock!
Conclusion: I am thoroughly pleased so far with not only the nail treatments, but the range of shades, finishes, packaging and high quality formulas. The cremes are glossy as heck, and the formulas are excellent in every way. Easy to apply and fast to medium drying, 1-2 coats. What more can you as for?!
