Swatch: Rainbow Honey Neon Blossom

Neonsss~~~ I'm not ready to let them go yet (but I'll get over it by next post, there are some GORGEOUS fall polishes out this year!).

This is from my last Rainbow Honey order, Neon Blossom over yesterday's ACO Neon Blue. The chunky glitters were easy to work with, came out of the bottle and off the brush with a little bit of dabbing. It worked really well actually!






BRIGHT.



And so sparkly!

Alright, alright, I'm letting the neons go... Fall polishes coming your way!

Swatch: ACO Neon Blue

Okay, this was my last chance to sport neons. Last week was incredibly sunny and I took that opportunity so fast! Everything after this is probably going to be very autumnal.... Enjoy!


This is one of those cheapo polishes from Ardene that my friend didn't want anymore. I did two coats and it dried to what Orly calls "vinyl" finish.





What do you think? There's a bit more neon coming up in the next post, look forward to it!

Influenster: A Review

Hi everyone! Tiff's kind of taken over the last few weeks while exam crunch has kept me busy with students all over the place. There are some things to look forward to here of course! The release of I Love Nail Polish ultra chrome flakies is the biggest one I can think of, but I've also got some nice swatches planned and some inspired nail art in the works. I've been sitting on some of my photos for the last month with just no time to get a post together.

Luckily, Influenster will put me back in the habit. I've got the opportunity to be a "Blog Star" which means I will get more products from them in exchange for my honest review. I've already received a couple VoxBoxes from them before, and actually been the winner of the extra brand goodies for doing the extra activities. I'm just going to take a moment and show you what they've sent my way the last few years that I've been a member.

I have repeatedly been sent Kiss and Broadway Nails products and I love them. For the full reviews, just click the photos!

Kiss Nail Dress

I also really like that they send me more than one design. With my box in May, my friend and I got to have a girly night in with our press-ons. She found they were her favourite thing by the way, and now owns nail glue and even more press-ons.



My extra prize for doing all the VoxBox activities was more designs in my mail box. I love nail mail :D

I got my first Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes in a Canadian VoxBox earlier this year!



And my participation won me a Sally Hansen gel manicure kit with the UV light ($69.99 at Target last time I checked). That was super cool!



So my personal experience so far with influenster has been extremely positive. I mean, who doesn't love getting free stuff in the mail? Aside from that though, I like telling people about the things I've been using that I like and would be writing reviews regardless of whether I was guaranteed free stuff for it and I think that is the trick with the VoxBoxes.

Swatch: ILNP Abundance

Hi guys! This is the last I Love Nail Polish I have to show you (until we get the ultrachrome flakies!!) and this one is kind of exciting because Sharra got it too and she has a really cute nail art to show you with it later!

Abundance is a new ultrachrome for the fall and it is the perfect shifter to represent the season! It shifts from red to orange to gold to an olive green. Compared to Nostalgia this one definitely has more orange and gold and at the extremes bends bright red instead of plum. The green is also more olive toned in Abundance. In the sunlight it has a nice shimmer to it as well.


This is two coats with top coat. It's a little streaky, but the top coat helps out a bit.

This is the "bluest" I've seen the green shift to

Look at the rainbow in the bottle!! 


The gold shift is so prominent in this pic



Hope you guys like abundance and have a great day!!


XOX,

Swatch: ILNP Black Orchid

Hi everyone! Today I have Black orchid for you!! This is a GORGEOUS, deep,velvety, black cherry holo. It is a stunner! It never looks black in low lighting, and yet it maintains that dark sexy colour even in the brightest lighting. Perfection! I love it :)

Ok I'm just going to let the swatches do the talking! This is two coats with top coat. It really could have used three coats, I noticed bald spots in the photos later (but they weren't noticeable in person). It also dries a little matte so top coat is a necessity to create that gorgeous depth.

























Mmmmm so pretty!! I love this one! What do you guys think??

XOX,

Swatch: ILNP Nostalgia (H)

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! This is the second polish I picked up in ILNP's Halloween sale, Nostalgia! I originally saw swatches of this one last winter and I wanted it soooo bad but the shipping to Canada was killer for one polish. So I yearned from a distance lol until now! I'm so excited! I have nothing anywhere close to this one.

Nostalgia (H) is a very shifty "ultrachrome" (that's shiftier than your run of the mill duochrome lol) with a linear holo. The colour spectrum shifts from forest green to grass green to gold to orangey-red to a plumy-maroon. Or at least that's what I see! I always like my duochromes over black (I really don't know if it makes a difference, but I feel like it makes the colours a touch brighter) so this is two coats over OPI Black Onyx plus top coat (because it was a little brush-strokey and I thought the top coat might hide it and it did to some degree)






















 Hope you guys like my swatches and have an awesome day! See ya tomorrow!

XOX,
Tiffany.

Swatch: I Love Nail Polish Iconic

Hi guys its Tiffany! Hope you guys had a good weekend. Did any of you get in on ILNP's huge 30% off sale on Halloween?? Sharra and I did! We got 8 polishes between the two of us hahaha and we both wish we got more :P

Today I am showing you Iconic! I have the PERFECT description for this polish! Picture a flute of champaign with a strawberry in it and the strawberry has mixed into the colour just a touch. That is exactly the colour of this polish. Oh and its holo gorgeousness too! Personally I don't really like gold polishes because I never feel like the yellowish tint complements my skin well. So when I found swatches of this gorgeous pinkish, champaign gold with the bright holo, damn I just needed it. I seriously doubt I will ever pine for another gold. This is the gold polish of the Gods. Like I actually picture Aphrodite sitting onto of Mount Olympus wearing this polish (and eating Ferrero Roches hahaha).

Ok ok my vivid imagination aside, on to the swatches! This is 4 coats (It only needed 3 really) and no top coat

Sunshine

Out of focus but wow that holo eh!

Some shots came out pinker than others








Hope you guys like my swatches of Iconic! More ILNP swatches to come!!
