Baby, I’m back!

13 Jul

Helloooo friends! I’m sorry for my wayyy longer than expected absence! I’ve been veryyy busy and my nails are been super sucky, idk why (probably because I suck at taking my vitamins and I over use the hand sanitizer).

Anyway, my nails still suck but I don’t care because I came home today to find these in my mailbox!!

2014-07-12 17.15.00I have sooo much love for Rainbow Honey. It’s like they can sense when I am feeling down and they send these things to cheer me up!

Rainbow Honey just released their Summer Mix Tape collection which features 12 polishes named after popular songs. The polishes they send to everyone is random, and the three I was lucky to receive are (from left to right) Best Friend (based off the Foster the People song, I assume), Work It Out (based off the Knox Hamilton song I guess??) and Stolen Dance (based off the Milky Chance song?). I have to confess that I’ve never heard a single one of these songs and I actually spent the past 15 minutes googling haha.

I love Rainbow Honey’s descriptions of their polishes, but I like to try my hand at it before I read the full description. I tried Stolen Dance tonight and my description was basically “mint ice cream green with a faint silver halo.” The RH description is “We shouldn’t talk about it, but this pale kiwi green will entice you with its gold and violet shimmer.” Usually, the description from RH is pretty accurate (though a bit theatric) and that remains partly true. I don’t think “pale kiwi” is really a color, though, and if it were, it wouldn’t be this.

(please ignore how gross my nails are)

The idea of “pale kiwi” is off putting and sort of makes this seem like it should be a dull neon, but that’s definitely not what’s going here. It’s creamy green in color, like ice cream or a grasshopper shot. The purple/metallic halo isn’t really visible because my camera sucks (I’m still taking pics on my Samsung Galaxy sIII) and because it’s really quite subtle. Teal is a very summer color, though, so this is basically perfect for the season.

I did 3 coats of this, but I probably could have gotten away with 3. The coverage was nice and the formula was easy to use, not too thick or too watery. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you’re taking a beach vacation (I’d love a bathing suit in this color).

I don’t have time tonight to check out the other 2 colors, but I’ll have them up within a couple of days/next week. I’m sorry again for disappearing on y’all like that, I kinda suck sometimes. I’ve missed this, though, so I’m going to try harder to get my nails into shape! I’m still really busy as always with work (plus I’m helping a friend start up a statewide vegan organization…) but I won’t be gone for 2 months again haha. Thanks for bearing with me!
