Hello loves! Today I have a new Australian brand being stocked at Color4Nails to show you, JOSS Lacquer. These holos are a little more on the thin side, formula wise, so thin coats should be used to ensure you don't flood your cuticles. I didn't use a top coat on any of these but I would recommend using one to make the manicure last longer. These do tend to pull a little also so make sure that the your first coat is sufficiently dry before applying the next one.

Today I have the last couple of polishes from Rainbow Honey to show you all. I was extremely excited to get a surprise review package from RH, especially when I saw the first polish in this review. Now that I've swatched all of them I am in love with each and every one! RH has some pretty awesome polishes: colors, formulas and names! It's no surprise these were their top sellers last year!
The Kraken: described as “a marine jelly with a blue and green glow filled with glitters and shimmer”
Shown as 3 coats topped with Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Flash.
This is probably one of my all time favorite Rainbow Honey polishes of all time. The color is absolutely gorgeous and the glitters are a perfect match. The formula is excellent, it gave me no problems at all.
Summer Blossom: described as “orange, yellow and white blossoms in a sea of iridescent and holographic glitters”
Shown as 1 coat over Zoya Livngston, topped with Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Flash.
I wasn't expecting to like this one so much, I’m not a big fan of shaped glitters let alone flowers, but I wound up really liking this, what can I say I'm a sucker for iridescent glitters. I especially enjoy my choice of undies for this cheerful glitter topper. Surprisingly I didn't need to do too much fishing for the flowers. I did need to place them on the nail as opposed to just polishing them on but with larger glitters I pretty much expect this.
These two polishes, as well as a ton of others, are available on Rainbow Honey's website www.rainbowhoney.com.. They retail for $10 each full size bottle and you can use the code ILOVENAILBLOGS from now until March 31, 2014 to receive $5 off your next Rainbow Honey order!

Hello loves! I have a glimpse of spring in today’s post! Michelle of Laquerlicious is releasing her Swing Into Spring collection this Friday and I have swatches for them right here! It’s been a while since I have shown you any Laquerlicious but these all have flawless formulas just as I remember them to have had in the past. No dragging, flooding, pooling or thickening during use. The glitters all lay flush against the nail and blend nicely with application so there is no need for a glitter smoothing top coat.
All 7 of these polishes shown in this post are shown as 2 coats topped with Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Flash.

Hello again! I know I already posted once today but I have to catch up on some posts and I figured no one wouldn’t mind a second post, right? Especially since the second one is an awesome Zoya post! I have the Magical Pixie Trio to show you. These were first announced back at the beginning of the year, when I got that press release I was over the moon excited! It’s no secret I am all about the textured trend. I usually don’t like textures and normally when I find a tend I like I only stick to it for a little while and then I get bored. This is not the case with textured polishes, especially when Zoya keeps releasing such awesome shades! These are a little different than the PixieDust polishes we're used to because they have some added flair! Each of these three have
All three of these Magical Pixie formulas were consistent with what I have come to expect of Zoya PixieDusts: applying smooth, no flooding or pooling. You will need to make sure your first coat has sufficiently dried before continuing on to the second or you will end up with dragging and clumping.
