I have returned. I had this hiatus going on for a while and I didn't mean for it - I was out of country, then backlogged in photos, then went through a break-up. It's been good times, it's been bad times but I've always had this nail blog in the back of my mind and I miss it - quite truly! It's my birthday today which means I have a birthday hail from Sephora to share with you this week as well but I figured I should kick off a comeback post with some actual NAILS!
So Rainbow Honey had a great promotion during the Christmas season and if you spent $75 or more, you would receive the "Large Grab Bag" - what I didn't know is that it would also include a FULL SIZE bottle of a "Sample". Now whether or not it's going to be some sort of upcoming shade, I don't know - but on a clutch, I was trying to figure out what to do for New Years' Eve nails and this is what I ended 2013 and started 2014 with! To glam it up even more, I added one coat of OPI Pure 18K White Gold and Silver Top Coat and I think it just killed it.
This Rainbow Honey Sample is a bit of a royal blue that has hint of purple shimmer. It's very subtle. Formula was a bit thick so it was best to do thin layers. This is my swatch in three coats with Seche Vite top coat:
And lastly, here's that OPI Pure 18K White Gold and Silver Top Coat. Just one coat brought this type of coverage! I'm pretty happy with it:
I just want to say thank you to any of you who have stayed by the blog and followed it. I want to give a special thank you to My Ten Friends Nail Polish for giving me a massive shout out on Facebook, giving me a surprise influx of Likes just in time for my birthday. I hope I won't have to go on hiatus like that again.
I'm also sorry for the shabby cuticle care - haha! There's something I'll have to resolve this year.
Anyway, let me know how your 2014 has been so far. Are you killing it this year? Any big changes? I hope all of you have had an amazing winter, and I can't wait to catch up on the trends and share our swatches this year.
