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...
1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Rainbow Honey Bloody Weapon
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
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.
|Rainbow Honey Mini Mystery Bag November 2015|
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...
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.
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!
back to NaNoWriMo. (#amwriting)
