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!

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!

Stash Swatch Initiative: Maybelline Bleached in Peach

Hello!

Today's swatch is Maybelline Bleached in Peach!

Maybelline Bleached in Peach. Indoors, artificial light, no flash.

Bleached in Peach is a pale, but bright peach creme polish. This was released earlier this year in a limited edition collection called Bleached Neons. I wanted the whole collection, but missed out on it during our big move. This was the only one I've found so far!

Swatches today are one coat of Sinful Colors Basecoat, three coats of Bleached in Peach, and one coat of NYC In a New York Minute topcoat. This was honestly a streaky nightmare, at first. I needed three coats for full coverage but it wasn't super even at that. Pastels and neons can be finicky, and this has elements of both so it shouldn't come as a surprise.

I found my bottle on clearance at ShopKo.
