Haul: August!

Hello!

August started off with Rainbow Honey's monthly Mystery Bag. This month's signature scent was Royal Fruits, which has a nice bright fruit smell at first then mellows down to a vanilla-esque warmth that I quite like. This bag came with a mini roller ball and large cuticle balm in the Royal Fruits scent; a nice-sized body spray in their fan-favorite scent, Summer Juice; and three mini-size polishes. The polishes are 488nm, a turquoise creme; Modern Hearts, a neon glitter topper; and a Royal Fruits scented topcoat.

My husband surprised me with a few things he found on clearance at Shopko - Studded Nail Art Kit from a brand I'd never noticed before (Fing'rs), Fingr's Heart 2 Art Meet me in the Green Room, and Sally Hansen Galactic Green. I picked up a pretty, pastel glitter polish from Salon Perfect at Walmart. And, lastly, my sister's friend became a Jamberry consultant, so I ordered a couple of packets to try - Lollipop Chevron and Cup of Tea.


Random August Loot!

Quiet around here this month! More soon! ^_^

NOTW: Jamberry Inspired Skittle

Hello!

This week's look is centered around a Jamberry nail wrap. My sister roped me into trying some of these with her, and this one was a free sample.


Indoors, artificial light, no flash.

I paired my wrap with two coats of China Glaze Re-fresh Mint topped with Seche Vite. I added some soft and subtle sparkle to my middle finger with OPI Pirouette My Whistle, and to pull the whole look together, I focused on the yellow of the flowers and added some small dots with Sinful Colors Unicorn.

More soon! ^_^

Stash Swatch Initiative: Rainbow Honey Modern Hearts

Hello!

Today, I have Rainbow Honey Modern Hearts to show you!

Rainbow Honey Modern Hearts. Indoors, artificial light, no flash.

Modern Hearts is a glitter topper in a clear base. For glitters, I see neon pink hexes and squares, mango-colored hexes, light yellow hexes, tiny white hexes, and white hearts. There is also iridescent shimmer, which I've come to expect and love from Rainbow Honey polishes.

Swatches today are one coat over yesterday's Maybelline Bleached in Peach swatch plus two coats of topcoat. This applied nicely, and I didn't see the need to dab. I did, however, place the hearts purposefully.

Modern Hearts came in my mystery bag so I'm not sure if this will be available for purchase on it's own. Keep an eye out at Rainbow Honey for new releases!
