Rainbow Honey Swatches

Hey guys!
*Products were provided for honest review*

Today I have 5 Rainbow Honey polishes to show you! Two of these are the top glitters from 2013, one is an unreleased glitter, and two are from the Sweet Talk collection! Let's get to it, shall we?

All photos are with flash and are two coats, unless otherwise noted. Sorry about the flash but I have to swatch at night when my husband can wrangle the baby, lol.

First, Be Mine, from the Sweet Talk collection.  A really pretty light pink with gold flecks of shimmer.

 Next, XOXO, one coat over Be Mine.

Papillon, a pink glitter with holographic butterfly glitters! This is one coat over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Next, The Kraken. Trust me, this is so much prettier in person! I love these blue colors and the green glitter is just lovely.

Finally, Summer Blossom. This is one coat with placed flowers over Be Mine. The flowers weren't bad to fish out.

Rainbow Honey has provided a coupon code you you guys! Use code ILOVENAILBLOGS to receive $5 off your next order! This coupon expires 03/31/2014!

Operation: Helmer - January's Results!

Hey guys!

For January, I was going to be focusing on using my first China Glaze drawer. I managed to do about 5  manicures this month, which is so sad when you think that I used to do my nails almost every day! Life as a mom, I tell ya :-p

Here are the manicures that I did in January:

China Glaze High Def

OPI MBSW with OPI In True Stefani Fashion and China Glaze Aquadelic

China Glaze Pink Ombre:
Thumb to Pinky - 
Snap My Dragon, Love's A Beach, Make Some Noise, Pink Plumeria, and Mimosa's Before Mani's
Covered in Fairy Dust

China Glaze Green Ombre:
Thumb to Pinky - 
Westside Warrior, Holly Jolly, Cha Cha Cha, Gaga for Green, Re-Fresh Mint
with Snow Globe on index finger
Sunset Sail, Lemon Fizz, Papaya Punch, Velvet Bow, and Electric Beat dots

China Glaze Make Some Noise

So in total, I used 18 China Glaze polishes this month. Maybe it's cheating to do ombre's but I'm thinking that how a lot of my manicures are going to be, as I just don't have as much time to do my nails as I used to. Oh well. I think this was pretty successful, don't you?

Tomorrow, I will be posting the contest of February's drawer and asking for suggestions as to what polishes you most want to see for February!

What do you think? Did you use any of your untrieds or not as loved polishes this month?

Talk to you soon!
