Review & Swatch: Rainbow Honey - The Equestria Collection Pt.2

Sorry everyone - I got a day behind on this post.. Just too many activities going on right meow! I do apologize for the delay, but I promise these are gems, so it makes up for the wait!

You can check out part 1 of this collection by clicking here.

Now on to the four remaining polish in this set..


We have: the element of magic, hoof wrassle, the worst possible thing, and Mare of the Moon.

As before, the swatching is:

Pinky = 1 coat of polish
Ring = 2 coats of polish
Middle = 3 coats of polish
Index = 1 coat of polish over a base
Thumb = 2 coats of polish over a base

And here we go..


the element of magic - "Inspired by Twilight Sparkle. Several shades of purple and pink glitter, some holographic, some iridescent, and a sprinkling of fairy dust all in a shimmery purple base with a magical blue shift."


hoof wrassle - "Inspired by Applejack. A shimmery copper orange base studded with gold, copper, and orange hex and square glitter, and a sprinkling of iridescent and holographic glitters - this polish loves to sparkle in the sun."

I actually think this might be my favourite of the bunch.. I love them all, but there is just something about this orange gem.. Me and my strange love of orange polish.


the worst possible thing - "Inspired by Rarity. A sheer layering polish, jewel encrusted just as Rarity would endorse, shimmering with opalescent flakes in purple and blue and a multitude of holographic and iridescent glitters."

If I didn't love hoof wrassle as much as I do, I would have to say that this is my favourite.. It almost seemed 3D-esque, and I, of course, thoroughly enjoy that!


Mare of the Moon - "Inspired by Princess Luna. A deep and mysterious indigo polish with a violet color shift and a sprinkling of silver moon crescents and holographic glitters."

This polish is extremely beautiful - and I especially love the crescent glitter - and, just based on looking at all the polish alone, I would have said 'that will be my fave!' I would have been so wrong.

Now, I may not be one for a wealth of glitter polish.. As I would prefer to do some nail art-y stuff instead, I am absolutely smitten with this collection! I can see myself finding some use for each and every one of these gems..

I'd say if you're a fan of glitter polish - get the set - and if you're not a huge fan of glitter polish.. I think you still would have to pick up this set and just test it out for yourself, I bet you find a use for them!

Now that I'm aware of Rainbow Honey, you can be sure that I will be watching for more awesome sets like this one.. And that is really, really, awesome!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
