Whew, it's been a while. I had meant to only take a week off but I got caught up in launching another project. Maybe one day I can announce it here, but in the meantime it's still not even ready and it bums me out that teams are so hard to work in and also Breaking Bad bummed me out yesterday so it's really about time I start posting in here again because this was always my escape to talk about anything and to focus on something else. I hadn't even painted my nails since the last week of August, so the smells and the act of painting was all familiar and nice again. Anyway - what better way to come back than with some MORE Rainbow Honey?
Actually, I'll be doing Rainbow Honey polishes all week and you'll see why. But today I have pictures as well as the result of Rainbow Honey's Galaxy Nails set. The set came nicely packaged and came with 5 polishes: Violet, Blue, Black, White and Space Dust, as well as two sponge applicators and instructions. Check it out.
I followed the instructions and kind of just winged it. I am not used to the softer, denser "make up" sponge - I usually use cut up kitchen sponge when doing my gradients. I actually kind of liked it. It gave a much more soft effect. Rainbow Honey also had their own "Violet" and "Blue" polishes which were packed with shimmer, and had a very sheer build up. It was very much made and formulated for galaxy nail art. I used a coat of Seche Vite for an extra glossy look.
I think it sucks there's only two makeup sponges but considering I've used the same chewed up piece of kitchen sponge for gradients over the last few months, I think I could stretch out the use of one for a bit. I can definitely use the other corners!
And lastly, here's my Rainbow Honey Galaxy Nails to go along with my galaxy skirt! Rainbow Honey is holding an Instagram/Twitter contest where you match your nails with your outfits and accessories. Here's one of my entries! They are accepting multiple entries so I'll be doing this all week!
What do you think of the Rainbow Honey Galaxy Nails set? Do you have a preference on what type of sponge you use for your nail art? What kind of matching polish do you tend to do with your outfits?
