Review: Rainbow Honey - The Summer of 199X - Apple Kid, Tessie & I MissYou

Hello lovelies!

Today's polishes were sent to me by Rainbow Honey for review.  All opinions are my own.

Rainbow Honey presents its newest collection, The Summer of 199X featuring 10 new colors inspired by the 1995 SNES hit, Earthbound.

In my bloggers set I received:
Apple Kid - a bright and rosy fuchsia creme filled with shimmer
Tessie - a dusty and shimmery periwinkle creme 
I Miss You - a pastel rainbow of shimmers and glitters

I started with Apple Kid and as the description says its has a beautiful shimmer running throughout.  The formula on this was great and 1 coat was completely opaque but the perfectionist in me insisted on 2.

Tessie has a more subtle shimmer running throughout but it is equally as beautiful.  The 1st coat was a little streaky but by the 2nd coat it had levelled out to a lovely smooth finish.

I applied I Miss You to my ring and thumb accents over both cremes to show you how different it can look depending on the undies.
Over Apple Kid you can really see the blue/purple shimmer and it gives a lovely iridescent finish.
Over Tessie the aqua and pink shimmer seem to be more obvious but again the iridescent finish was very pretty.
I Miss You is full of square, butterfly and heart glitters.

I've gotta say I absolutely LOVE this trio.  Rainbow Honey have definitely created a winner once again!

Whilst Rainbow Honey themselves only dispatch to USA and Canada click here to find retailers that can supply you with these beauties.

    1. Aren't they fab! I hope to get some more if not the rest of the collection =) xo

  2. I love that glitter with the little hearts and butterflies. The polishes are pretty too especially that pink one, Apple Kid.

    1. I think Apple Kid may be my new favourite pink!

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!

Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight

Hello lovelies!
Today I'm wearing Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight. I'm a huge indie fan and I love that there are some brilliant UK indies out there.
Turkish Delight is a pink jelly, full of pink/purple circle glitters.  There's a stunning iridescent purple shimmer through it also.

I can't describe how stunning this is in real life and I struggled to capture it's beauty, this was the best I could manage with the bathroom lights, lol.

I reckon with the shimmer this would look fab over black!
P.S. Can't say I wasn't attracted to this polish purely for its name, hehe. xo
