Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 Here are a few pictures of my one and only Marc Jacobs nail polish, Petra.  I used two coats here.
 It applied easily but didn't wear so well (I blame that on one of my infamous top coat experiments).
The shimmer in it is really pretty and flakie like!  Tiny golden flakie shimmers.  Petra is kind of ambiguous purply gray super metallic and shimmery.  Sorry the lighting is weird in these pictures.

Do you have any Marc Jacobs nail polishes?  What do you think of them?

 Rainbow Honey just released a brand new collection of 15 polishes called "The Final Battle."  They were generous enough to send me three mini polishes to review here.
 This first one is called Phoenix Down.  I have layered one coat over a coat of black polish.  I used top coat and base coat in all of these pictures.
 Phoenix Down is super cool!  It's got loads of good stuff in it and applied very easily.  I love the combination of white shards, red squares, and the iridescent bars that look blue over the black!
 Check out the teeny tiny little bar glitters, too!  So cool!
 I'm sure this one would look really great over lots of colors.
 This is the second polish I got and it's called Hellfire.
 Here I've layered it over one coat of Illamasqua Scarab.  I was going to use black again, but then noticed that Hellfire has tiny little black glitters in it.  They get lost in the mix, I'm afraid, but I still like how this looks over blackened red.
 Do you see the star on my ring finger?  This one applied very easily, as well.
 I love the red squares and the gold bars...and pretty much everything going on here!
 Last up is Emerald Weapon.  I did two coats of it here.
 It's super pretty and shimmery!  Ignore the one random blue glitter on my ring finger (if you see it) - that was lurking in my top coat and has nothing to do with Emerald Weapon.  Oops!
 This one applied very easily as well.  I'm happy that it only needed two coats.  It's a very lovely shade of blueish green.
Overall, I am impressed, as usual.  I'm probably going to be ordering the entire collection because it looks fantastic!  You can check it out at Rainbow Honey's site here.

This review is my own honest opinion.  I am thankful and appreciative to Rainbow Honey for allowing me to be a part of their blogger review team.  :)

 This is three coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Perfect Pear-ing.  I got it on sale at Target a few weeks ago along with a few others.
 Dare I say that this is a crelly!?  I don't think I've ever used that term before, but it totally came to mind as I was applying this polish.  It's not as opaque as most cremes and definitely has a slight squishiness to it!  What say you?  Crelly or no?
 I love this color.  I find it to be rather unique to my large collection of minty colors.  It's more spring green and lime green than most mints but still has a distinctly mint feel to it.
 The application was easy, though I was kind of annoyed to need three coats.
My wear time sucked with this one, but to be fair I have been playing with my base and top coat combos lately, so more than likely that is to blame versus the actual polish!  I believe I was wearing the Dior Gel top coat here, which absolutely did not dry quick enough.  I'm still testing it out in various ways, though, so I haven't made up my mind completely on it.

 This here is China Glaze Deviantly Daring.  I used two coats here and had no problems with application.
 Any time I use this type of polish, kind of metallic duochrome, I am always a little more cautious and careful than normal, just to avoid unnecessary brush strokes.
 Funny thing about this color - I loved swatches online (and still do), and I even think my pictures are really pretty.  Somehow, in person, it fell flat for me.  I don't know why!  It just felt kind of BLAH.
 Am I crazy?!  Has anyone else felt this way about Deviantly Daring?
I think I probably also expected it to be more duochrome than it really is.  In person, it only has a very minimal flash to it.  Nonetheless, I think it's a great teal polish.  If you like teal, I'm pretty sure you'll like this!

This Is Me!

My photo
I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
