Last week the rest of my various orders came in, so now I’m properly overwhelmed by indie gorgeousness. Here’s a little picspam of the stuff that appeared in my mailbox.
First we have a couple of Pahlish polishes, Toxic and Timeless and My Oblivion. These are not new, but they weren’t in stock when I placed my last order, so I snagged them when I saw they were available again. And don’t you just love the new label?!
Next up is three bottles from Rainbow Honey‘s Sakura Matsuri collection. I got Koi Pond, Sakura Matsuri and Hanami. I’ve been lemming these for so long, and I was thrilled when the collection finally got back in stock!
All That Glitters recently released a new collection called The Princess Collection, and of course I had to get a few of those. My picks were Kissing On A Frog, Arose From A Sleep and Not A Prize To Be Won.
Finally, I managed to get my hands on Lynnderellas from the newest collection Sweet Somethings for a Summer Solstice. As you may know, these are now only available on eBay for buyers in the US, but luckily I got a friend to help me “mule” them over here. I got six of these this time, as I’ve snagged Common Sense in a private sale earlier.
The first three are Deep Blue Seeing, When The Moon Was A Star and 50 Shades of May-Be.
And the other three are The Garden of Even, Glass Houses and A Neutral Party.

Here’s the third installment in what has turned out to be my little Rainbow Honey manicure series. Today I’m wearing Rainbow Honey The Element of Magic, which is based on the pony Twilight Sparkle. On the website, this is described like this: Several shades of purple and pink glitter, some holographic, some iridescent, and a sprinkling of fairy dust all in a shimmery purple base with a magical blue shift.
I’m really loving these glitter-over-pastel-jelly manis I’ve been doing lately, so I’ve layered The Element of Magic over OPI Care To Danse?, which has a lilac tinge. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think it’s super cute and ethereal.
Easy to apply and neither chunky or moppy, the shimmer and glitters are easy to spread evenly on the nails. My Gelous and Seche Vite sandwich of topcoats makes this one very smooth as well.
Go to Rainbow Honey’s website to purchase these, full bottles are $10 and minis are $5.
PS: My Summer Clearout Blog Sale is still open, please feel free to take a look!
Here’s the second one of the Rainbow Honey Equestrias I bought, this is Rainbow Honey A Little Kindness, based on the pony Fluttershy. The Rainbow Honey website describes this one as rose, white, gold, and soft green glitters float in a delicate and sheer yellow base with an iridescent pink shimmer.
A Little Kindness is just as cute as its sister The Worst Possible Thing, I think I’m in love with these lacquers. I’m not going to say much more, because I have a lot of pics of this one, and I’m just going to let them speak for themselves. I’ve layered one coat of “Kindness” over a bubblegum pink jelly franken I made.
This polish wasn’t as thick as the other Rainbow Honey I’ve tried, it was easy to apply, and the glitters dispersed evenly, with just a little dabbing here and there. The pink shimmer is just divine, and I think it looks great both in bright light and in daylight. I’ve used Gelous x 2 + Seche Vite over this mani, and it’s completely glassy smooth.
Another thing I love about Rainbow Honey, is the packaging. Each bottle comes in a super cute box, it looks so pro and exclusive!
With a colordrop and the name on the top of the box, very convenient! (The bottles also have labels with the color names on top of the bottles.)
What do you think of this brand? Have you tried any Rainbow Honeys yet, or are you going to? I can’t wait for the other two collections to come back in stock, both the Sakura Matsuri and the Chrono Cross collections look so pretty!
More indies! (Does it ever stop? NO! Thank goodness!)
Today I have The Worst Possible Ting (but it’s really the best thing!) from Rainbow Honey, another handmade polish brand. This is from the Equestria collection, based on the tv series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I’ve never watched the show, but I had a few My Little Ponies when I was little, and I loved playing with them. I can totally see where she’s coming from with the pony-inspired glitter blends.
The Worst Possible thing is inspired by the pony Rarity, and according to the creator Dee, it’s a sheer layering polish, jewel encrusted just as Rarity would endorse, shimmering with opalescent flakes in purple and blue and a multitude of holographic and iridescent glitters.
And I just have to say, it’s so cute I almost die! My pictures of this is so worthless, it’s hard to capture all the color changes and sparkliness. It’s really gorgeous in real life, it just has to be seen! I couldn’t figure out what to layer this one over, so I eventually decided on a gradient with China Glaze Agent Lavender, Something Sweet and Sugar High.
Ain’t that just the gosh darn cutest thing you’ve ever seen?! Ahem.
Now, this polish is really, really thick and chunky. It’s packed with glitter, so it’s almost more like spreading butter on your nails than actually painting the polish on. Luckily it’s a sheer topcoat, so it’s ok for this purpose. The polish is also topcoat hungry, so I recommend using a couple of coats of your glitterfoodiest topcoat.
I ordered four of the Equestrias, in addition to this I got A Little Kindness (Fluttershy), Pinkie Promise (Pinkie Pie) and The Element of Magic (Twilight Sparkle). Polishes are available at Rainbow Honey’s website, where full size bottles (15 ml) are $10 and mini bottles (7 ml) are $5. Shipping to Norway is around $17 as far as I remember (small flat rate box).
