Mare Of The Moon

Okay first of all OH MY GOD. Rainbow Honey glitters really are as gorgeous in real life as they are on blogs!!!!! I just got the Equestria minis set in the mail today and I couldn't wait to try one. And I couldn't wait to share.. Literally. My nails are still slightly wet as I type.

Alrighty. So to test out this beautiful polish I wanted to try it over more then one colour base, but I also (obviously) wasn't feeling insanely adventurous so I kept all the colours quite similar.I wouldn't go as far as saying they all fall into the same family, but definitely close. I used OPI Purple with a Purpose (thumb), Suzi Says Feng Shui (ring finger) and Into the Night (everywhere else). Quite a pretty combo even on their own I think.

Now this is my first time dabbling with a real complicated sparkle polish. I've tended to only really use shimmers in the past and they aren't quite so hard to use. I was actually texting my friend Sharra from over at The Blahg the whole time I did my nails trying to figure out the best way to get the big glitter chunks out.

I did this hand first, notice that I have quite a few moons but the coats are so thick you can barely see the base coats?
This hand I tried dabbing the glitter on at Sharra's suggestion. Definitely not as many of the bigger pieces but I was happy to see my carefully selected base colours showing through better.
I feel like there has to be a way for me to be able to get both the big glitters and the showing of the base coat, I just haven't figured it out yet. Suggestions welcome. All in all though I have never been more in awe of a polish. In case you can't see, its a very beautiful purpley blue shimmer with silver glitter chunks and silver moons throughout it. I tried to get some better pics in better lighting of both hands so you can really see the difference between having a lot of it on and less. Apologies for the lack of cleanup, like I said I was so excited to show you guys I think my nails are probably only JUST dry now.  



  1. This looks AMAZING! AND YOU GOT THE MOONS! I had this "my baby is growing up" moment, I hope you don't mind =P The Rainbow Honey glitters are in a shimmer base (except The Worst Possible Thing I believe) and those do change the look of the base colour you use, just be aware. Wait for natural light. You will be awed. Just try not to get hit by a car when you're crossing the street k =P

    1. I did! I think the swearing helped my concentration.. My roommate must think I'm crazy though lol

      And ooooh hopefully the sun will peak out tomorrow so I can see what it looks like proper.

  2. Too bad we don't have this brand here in Rome. They are very attractive. I am followin you, I hope you will follow me back.

    1. We don't have the brand in Canada either, I ordered it from their website Well worth it!!!!! Thanks for the follow, I'll definitely follow back :)
