2 Model City Resident Evil polishes!

Today I have for you something I am very excited about. When Nina of Model City said she was doing a Resident Evil inspired collection, I couldn't wait to see them. I love the Resident Evil series, I have played Resident Evil 2 more times than I can count, its a favorite of mine. I was so excited when Nina said she was sending me 2 of the new colors to review, so here they are!

First up I have S.T.A.R.S.  S.T.A.R.S is a rich blue jelly blend with gold holographic glitter in two sizes and gold holographic stars. A base coat is recommended by Nina, though I had no issues with staining. Better safe than sorry! This blue is so deep looking, its going to be a favorite of mine I can tell. I used 3 coats and top coat with no issues with the glitters.


Next I have Licker, some of the best monsters in the game! This is a coral base with pink shimmer and red flecks. I again used 3 coats and top coat. This one started out really sheer, but then built up very nicely by the next coat. Out of habit to try to ensure max coverage in photos I almost always use 3 coats, shorter nails will possibly only need 2.


I really love both of these colors and cant wait to be able to purchase the rest of the collection!

The Resident Evil collection will be launched on March 22nd at 12pm CST over at Model City Polish so set your alarms to be sure not to miss out!

Rainbow Honey Midnight Fountain

Quick post for you today, since I have been so bad at updating! I have Rainbow Honey Midnight Fountain. I used 3 coats and top coat, and it went on easily. I love this color, its such a pretty blue! The holo glitters came out super easily too.

OPI Yodel Me On My Cell

Hi! I had not planned on not updating for over 2 weeks, I thought I had some posts scheduled but apparently I did something and that didn't happen. So, I will manually publish posts and not rely on the scheduler, and I will keep this post short and to the point.

Today I have OPI Yodel Me On My Cell, a beautiful blue. I used 3 coats with top coat and it went on nicely. I used this previously as undies for Rainbow Honeys The Kraken. I love blue, but even though I have quite a few blues I seem to never wear them! I really need to fix that.

Cult Nails Be Loco

Happy Thursday! This week has been pretty nice with not having to get up at 6 am with snow days, and tomorrow is a 2 hour delay so I get to sleep until at least 8. But having to work at 7am Sunday means I have to be up early that day, so that sucks. But I get off at 2 which means I will be home in plenty of time for the Super Bowl! I'm more interested in seeing Bruno Mars at the halftime show but I will still enjoy the game. I'm going for Denver just because I always pick one team that I want to win whether I'm a fan of either team or not.

Anyway, today I bring you Cult Nails Be Loco. You saw this one under glitter yesterday, so I am now showing it alone. Its a great orange color, it still surprises me how much I love orange nail polish colors when its my second least favorite color normally! I used 3 coats and top coat, and it went on like a dream.

Rainbow Honey

Hi! Hope everyone is doing well, the week is half over! This post should have been up a couple days ago but my cat got hurt and unfortunately was too hurt and had to be put to sleep yesterday, so its been a rough couple of days. Today is a snow day for us here so I am taking the opportunity while being lazy to get this post up. Tomorrow is likely to be another snow day, with at least a 2 hour delay so hopefully I can bring you another post tomorrow.

Today I have some polishes from Rainbow Honey that were provided for review. They consist of 2 of their Valentines Collection that was released last year and that has been re-released with 3 more this year, 2 of their most popular glitters from last year, and 1 upcoming polish from their spring collection. I actually have purchased the 4 colors already out for myself when they were released, but haven't reviewed them yet, so now I will!

First I have Be Mine from the Valentines Sweet Talk collection. This is a pretty pink with gold flecks and shimmer. I used 3 coats and top coat. It went on very easily.


Next up I have XOXO, which I put 1 coat of over Be Mine with top coat. This went on easily with good glitter coverage for just the one coat. XOXO is a clear base with different sizes and shapes of pink glitter with flakes.


Now I have the first of the 2 best sellers from last year. Summer Blossom is a clear base with iridescent and holo glitters and orange, white and yellow blossoms. I used 2 coats with top coat over Cult Nails Be Loco. The blossoms came out fairly easily, with at least 1 with each dip of the brush.


The second of the best sellers is The Kraken. I love this one, its super pretty! The Kraken is a jelly filled with blue and green glitters and shimmer. I used 1 coat with top coat over OPI Yodel Me On My Cell, even though this can be worn on its own in about 3 coats. 1 coat over the base completely covered the nail.


Lastly I have Papillion, the glitter from the upcoming Midnight Garden Spring collection. I used 2 coats with top coat over Nubar Honeysuckle. This is a clear base with different sizes of holographic glitter and holo butterflies. It is super pretty, and I think it will look good over a variety of bases.


As a bonus for you all, Rainbow Honey has generously given me a promo code for you all to use! Use the code ILOVENAILBLOGS to save $5 off your next order. Code expires 3/31/14 so that gives you time to decide what to buy!

Rainbow Honey Metalmark

Happy Tuesday! I told you I would be back today with what I topped Totes Magotes with, and here it is!

With a recent order from Rainbow Honey, they were offering grab bags. Of course I got one, and when it came I was ecstatic! It contained 3 minis, I got Magic Cake which I love and am happy to have a back up mini of it, and 2 minis from an upcoming, as yet unannounced collection! Both colors I got are beautiful, so I'm really looking forward to finding out the inspiration and seeing the rest! I will have to second of the 2 for you in the next day or 2 as well, but for today I have Metalmark.

Metalmark is a glitter topper in a clear base that has a pink shimmer running through it with various sizes of aqua colored glitters as well as silver holo butterflies. As soon as I put on Totes Magotes I knew I had to top it with Metalmark after a day or so. It went on easily, I used 2 coats plus top coat and had no trouble getting out any of the larger butterflies. With no fishing I was able to get at least 1 on every nail. Here is one pic in the sun and one in the shade.

Stay tuned for the second color from the grab bag! What do you think of Metalmark? Any ideas on its inspiration?

Dollish Polish Totes Magotes

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend and those that are off today for MLK Jr. day enjoy it as well. Today I have for you Dollish Polish Totes Magotes.

Totes Magotes is a minty holo that was a limited edition color, so I'm sorry if you didn't get your hands on it! Its too pretty not to share though. It went on like a dream, I used 3 coats and top coat. I have a picture in shade and in sun to show the base color and the holo in this beauty.
