Pure Ice Vinyl Remix - Rock Star

Hey guys! What's new and exciting with you?? We are getting ready for our Diaper Party this weekend. So I'm buying food and trying not to eat all of it, haha! What are you doing for fun?

So this product came out last year but I was never able to find it in any of the stores around me. I had to wait until I saw it in a Traveling Swap Box and snagged it up.

Pure Ice Vinyl Remix is basically a crackle polish, but with a little bit of a twist. You apply a white base coat, let it dry and then apply the topcoat, all of which are black. Once applied over the white magic base coat, the color changes. This one changed to a light blue.

 I know everyone is pretty much over the crackle phenomenon but it has been forever and a day since I wore crackle and I actually really liked this look. Easy nail art FTW!

I did apply a top coat after these photos were taken, to gloss it up a bit.

Essence Thelma with A England Princess Tears

Hey guys!

Just a reminder that GFC is shutting down on Monday July 1, so to keep up with Fashion Footing, click on over here to follow via BlogLovin'!

I've had some of the Essence twins sitting on my desk FOREVERRRRRRRRRR and just haven't used them yet. I am running out of creme polishes to use under all of my glitters so I finally had to grab one! LOL

This is Thelma, a deep purple creme. I used 2 coats, no top coat.

With Flash:

Then, using a fan brush, I brushed A England Princess Tears over Thelma. Ohhhhh, pretty!

 Simple but fun, right?

China Glaze Fade Into Hue

Hey guys!

This is a polish from the spring China Glaze Avant Garden collection.

Fade Into Hue is a dusty periwinkle creme polish. It reminds me of the lavender flower, or even some lilacs. So pretty!

I used 2 easy coats here, no top coat.

One thing I will mention is that this peeled off in sheets the next day. That was probably my base coat (I'm still trying to find the perfect replacement to Nail Envy) but I thought I would mention it just to be safe :-)

Review: Pretty & Polished Popples & Marilyn

*Products were sent for my honest review*

Hey guys!

Today I have a few pretties from Pretty & Polished to share with you!.

When Chels told me she was sending me Popples to review... I was pretty pumped. Do you guys remember Popples? I had two of them. Actually, I still have two of them somewhere! Mine are very close to the colors in this polish, too! 

Popples is a neon matte glitter polish in a white base. It's a little bit sheer, so I did use a white base coat. This is two coats of Popples over OPI MBSW. The glitter was pretty packed in here and I didn't have to fish around for many of the glitters. I did specifically pull out a few extra large pink hexes. 

The first 2 pictures are without topcoat, the last 2 are with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. 

 With top coat:

Chels also sent me Marilyn, from the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes series. Marilyn is a cherry red crelly with pink shimmer. This polish was very easy to apply, and it didn't stain. Whoohoo!

Two coats:

Three coats:

Do you guys have either of these polishes? I personally LOVE Popples; it makes me think of my childhood :-) And who doesn't need a sexy red polish in their stash?

Check out Pretty & Polished's website, they are making some changes in the coming weeks and discontinuing some polishes so you'd better grab what you want before it's too late!

Review: Rainbow Honey Summer of 199X Polishes

*Products were sent for my honest review*

Hey guys!

I was sent 3 mini's from the brand spanking new Rainbow Honey Summer of 199X collection that is available for purchase NOW! Whooo!

The Summer of 199X is inspired by the 1995 SNES video game Earthbound. Now... honestly, I have no idea about this video game but I do love these colors! LOL So I will be using Rainbow Honey's descriptions of the polishes.

Let's get to the polishes! All of these polishes had a good formula and I had no troubles with glitter placement. All swatches are with no base or top coat.

First up, Tiny Ruby, "a shimmering red ruby jelly that is filled with holographic glitters, glistening flecks, and the rarest jewels of Dalaam."

I used two coats here over Pretty & Polished Marilyn.

Next, The Kraken. "A marine jelly with a blue and green glow filled with glitters, shimmer, and the sea monster's ow holographic Crashing Boom Bang!"

This was 3 coats.

Finally, Lumine Hall. "A dark indigo jelly glistening with the iridescent glitters and shimmers of your deepest thoughts..."

3 coats.

I adore these colors, and I'm definitely going to be ordering a few of the other glitters from this collection.

The Summer of 199X is available at and participating retailers around the world. You can purchase the collection as a full-size set, mini set, or individual bottles.

This is the perfect summery blue. Well, all blues are perfect to me, lol. But I love love this color! What do you think?

Thank you Arlyn!

I love these colors together. It's a little bit fall-ish but who cares? LOL

Review - Rainbow Honey Fab Summer Set

*Products were sent for my honest review*

Hey guys!

Today I'm reviewing the new Summer Set exclusive to Fab from Rainbow Honey.

"The Fab Summer Set is as refreshing as a cold sip of freshly squeezed lemonade. This set of three includes a dazzling array of shimmering polishes: kelly green, deep coral, and a sparkly lacuqer that glitters with holographic flecks. Paint yourself in a beautiful new light. - Fab"

These all applied very easily and smoothly. They had a nice consistency and there was no dragging or pooling.

Tenda, a bright kelly green with gold shimmer. This was 3 thin coats.

Costa del Sol over Tenda. This gold shimmering lacquer with iridescent and holographic glitters will add sun and sparkle to your manicure! 1 coat.

Schrammi is a deep coral with golden shimmer. This was 3 thin coats.

Costa del Sol over Schrammi, 1 coat.

I am not new to Rainbow Honey so I was fully expecting a wonderful product and this set did not disappoint.

The FAB Summer Set is now available through for a limited time only. Each set contains 3 full size 15ml lacquers designed exclusively for FAB by Rainbow Honey. The set is $25, while supplies last.
