Swatch: Rainbow Honey Magic Cake Two Ways!

Hi guys! So I have a Rainbow Honey polish for you that believe it or not Sharra hasn't swatched yet!! Haha girl is a huge Rainbow Honey fan!  :P  I must admit though, I'm really liking them too.

Magic Cake is a neon glitter mix with pink, green and blue squares (and pink hexes) and a silver micro glitter!! So if you love neons (and squares) this is a great one to add to the collection. The base is clear so this one is pretty versatile too. In fact, I couldn't actually decide which colour to put on top of, so I did two!!

Ok so the first colour is China Glaze Purple Panic. Its a neon pink that leans more purple than most neon pinks. It dries matte so this is two coats of Purple Panic and 1 of Magic Cake plus top coat.

 Ok so the second colour is Essie Butler Please which is a bright blue creme. This is two coats Butler, 1 coat magic cake plus top coat. Don't get me started on the formula of this one.... gross. Gloopy. Streaky. Matte-ish. The only thing that will save this one is seche vite to smooth it out. Ughhh I need to replace this one..

Which colour do you guys like better!? Lemme know in the comments! Have a good day!

Swatch: L'Oreal Haute Couture Red

Hi everyone it's Tiffany! Today I have a reeeaaally simple "nail art" with L'Oreal Haute Couture Red. 

Its a super dark brown/red cream polish. It has a tendency to look black in some lightings which is not my favourite thing, but I still like it a lot. It's got a really vampy, autumn feeling! Formula wise this polish is really really nice. Smooth, self-leveling and pretty much a one-coater (although I did two here). Both of the L’Oreal polishes I've tried are suuuper shiny too, if you don't bother with top coat!

So I did a bit of nail art for you. I was inspired by the Scalloped Mani post the Beauty Geeks did (read it here)!! I love the idea and I'm probably going to try some of the different variations they showed at some point. I especially love the ombre one (the scallop raises higher over each nail). The actual scallop was super easy to do, I even managed to do it on my right hand without any trouble.

Ok so here are the swatches:

Found a bottle shot from an old post I scrapped!

If you guys want to spruce up your favourite colour this season, I definitely suggest doing scallops! They were super easy to do and definitely on trend!!

Swatch: ILNP Masquerade (S)

Ahh, you guys, if you don't have some Ultra Chromes I am going to sell you sooner rather than later. After whimpering over it they went on sale a couple Fridays ago because Barb switched bottles and Tiff and I made a nice big purchase.

Other than Abundance, I also got Masquerade which is a gorgeous maroon-purple that shifts green (and in the bottle, a bit of blue too, though I couldn't get that on my nail).

This is three coats.

You need to see this shift. I keep getting distracted while washing my hands. My time is escaping me this way...

And the main colour! (with flash)

I love it. Check ILNP out and tell Barb I sent you!

Swatch: ILNP Abundance (S)

Okay, all, I know you just saw this polish from Tiff a few days ago, but we both ordered it and I am not going to NOT show you this.

So the first night I got this, I did three coats and got those photos above. I was a little disappointed by what I was seeing, it doesn't look that impressive right? Oh but the next morning the sun came out...

Uuuuungh, if that golden bronze wasn't enough, there's the shift...

I am dying. I love Barb's ILNP brand.

Go buy your own!

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!


And so sparkly!

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