Rainbow Honey Bloody Weapon

If you follow me on Instagram, you might recognize this gorgeous purple shade. It was one of the polishes in my November Mystery Bag from Rainbow Honey. Bloody Weapon...

I'm not sure what it is this year, but I'm all about deep, dark, vampy shades of red and purple nail polish. I don't know if I'm just super excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas or what?!? But something about shades like these, they're calling my name. 

Now, that's not to say that the sparkles and such aren't trying to sway me.

Also in this month's Mystery Bag, I received Interstellar Ice, a glitter topper that's a mix of holographic small silver glitter and blue glitter. It's insanely sparkly and gorgeous, and I could've put it over Bloody Weapon. But I decided not too. Like I said... 

Weird. 

So, in case you were wondering from the photos, no, I didn't upgrade my subscription to full size. Rainbow Honey is waiting for their mini polish bottles to come back in stock, so mini subscribers got 2 out of the 3 mystery bag polishes in full size! Woohoo!!! 

Bloody Weapon is a warm dark purple polish that is loaded with fine silvery shimmer. And I might be crazy, but I think there's a little sprinkling of scattered holographic glitter in here too. Every now and then, I catch a flash of random colored sparkle. 

Application was great. The first coat was a little patchy on a few nails. I used the second coat to wrap my tips, and a third to make sure everything was all smooth. Most people could probably get away with two coats. Today was actually the second day I wore this polish. I definitely put it on the night it came in the mail! Both times, the polish wore really well. 

This shade actually helped sway my decision to order the Berry Obsession Trio from Rainbow Honey, in addition to the Thanksgiving Mystery Bag. In my defense, there's been a serious drought in drugstore polish land. But that's a story for a different day. I'm just hoping that the Berry Obsessions apply just as nicely as Bloody Weapon. Aaaaaand every time I type that name, I'm still a little bitter that I missed out on Sapphire Weapon. 

So. 

Definitely look for pics of my Rainbow Honey haul on Insta. I'll be blogging about the polishes here in more detail as I wear them. Other than that, NaNoWriMo is going pretty well. I'm behind, but I'm hoping to catch back up. The weekends really are my demise. There's like zero time for anything on the weekends. I can't be the only one who feels that way?!? But I did get a lot of cleaning done yesterday, so YAY for that! 

And now... 

back to NaNoWriMo. (#amwriting)

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
