Swatch: Rainbow Honey Metalmark

One more swatch post and then I did some nail art!

Over RH Sparkling Agave, one coat and some dabs of RH Metalmark, a gorgeous silver/green glitter mix that includes BUTTERFLIES. I am so glad for shaped glitter. It makes me really happy. They were not hard to find and get out of the bottle and onto the nail either which is a BIG PLUS.

This combination was really hard to photograph because IRL it glows.

Apparently I also suck at taking pictures also because it is hard to see but there are two butterflies on my ring finger... Sorry.

Are you like me, getting super excited over all sorts of glitter shapes or could you do without? What's your favourite shape of glitter?

Swatch: Rainbow Honey Sparkling Agave

Greeeen! Sparkling Agave GLOWS. I should have matted it to see what happened, I think it would only intensify the effect. It took three coasts I think.

It's a very pretty colour. Reminds me a bit of Bitty Love Bot from RH's previous collection though, but with silver flakes interspersed.

Swatch: Rainbow Honey Foxglove Foxtrot

Short and sweet today! Foxglove Foxtrot over Rainbow Honey Prussian Sky, a cutie pink and blue combo for you.

This glitter was super easy to work with and very photogenic. I wish there was some white in there but the combination of these soft pinks is adorable.

Swatch: Rainbow Honey Prussian Sky

That last post was my 500th, wow o_o And that makes this one 501! Not as nice a ring to it...

Anyway, I am well into the throes of summer and needed a cool colour to remind me of deep cold water, hopefully tropical.

Prussian Sky is from Rainbow Honey's Midnight Garden collection and took two coats. It's glorious.

I tried to get some pictures with flash but they are not at all colour accurate..

It is an absolutely gorgeous colour though. I am really happy.

I've got the rest of this collection to go through too. Any ideas? What are your favourites?

Check out Rainbow Honey's website <3 or go say hi on Facebook (and tell them I sent ya!)

Nail "Art" Blue Skittles

PSA: If you text me saying you have a random urge to walk into Sephora and come out with some random nail polish (despite never having done your nails or wanted to in your entire life) I will reply in ALL CAPS to come over and not waste your money because I own 250+ different colours of nail polish and at this point it's probably more like 300.

So guess what? ;D

Left to right: Rainbow Honey Charaxes, Rainbow Honey Lumine Hall, Rainbow Honey Prussian Sky, Rainbow Honey Midnight Fountain, Essence Walk On Air. As you can see from the lack of linkies, she was the first to try a couple of these polishes :D

PSA#2: Don't come in and say "blue" because I will hand you 20 polishes....

This is Sarah!! She did all these things and then let me paint her nails! She's the coolest person and is apprenticing as a car mechanic.
This is her "what have I gotten myself into" face

Ta daa!

This was actually also one of my only times to have ever painted someone's nails. I was about to say it's my first but then I remembered I painted a lovely friend's digits with Zoya Dahlia. Sigh.

I was kinda going for a skittly-ombre-y kinda deal here.

This is my first successful skittles mani also btw. I'm just not good at them, I pick clashy colours.. Practice makes perfect I guess!

So I hope this encourages my nearby friends to always text me for nail polish things :D. What colour skittles would you have asked for?

Fast Food Poutine: Pizza Point

Just a quickie post today! I've been up at SFU helping my friend with his MSc project almost every day (feeding adorable fluffy caterpillars.... and waiting for them to die) and so I've had some time to reconnect with campus food. The pizza place up there has started doing poutine and they have some of the BEST fries ever, on par with Mean Poutine and` Coscto. For just over $6, you get this glorious piece of work here. Highly recommend.

Swatch: Rainbow Honey Stellar Treat + Nail Art

Yeah man! I think I got the hand of striping tape! The trick is not to use scissors but nail clippers to get the cut as close as humanly possible. Hurrah!

But first, here's a swatch of RH Stellar Treat over RH Apple Kid. I don't know if you can see those adorable tiny stars because Apple Kid ate them a little bit but if you chose a more contrasting colour it would look spectacular. As it is, you get little holographic flashes out of them this way.

I only painted my middle and ring fingers with them.

Then I decided accent nails were not enough. I dug up my silver striping tape and some really old nail stickers (I think they're Kiss).

Painted another half of my pinkie and index with Stellar Treat and diagonal on my thumb, stuck down the stickers, topcoat and there! Simple but pretty.

I'm so glad there's been some sunshine lately, it really makes it so much easier to take pictures.

Would you ever go this girly on your nails?
