Rainbow Honey September Mini Mystery Bag

Rainbow Honey Sept monthly mini mystery bag
I love my Rainbow Honey September mini Mystery bag! Here’s what was included this month:
Sugarberries – gorgeous sugary blend of berry glitters and pigments in a red shimmery base. Use for a glitter topper or layers.
Salacia – A sea goddess, calm and twinkling marine green glitter topper, part of an upcoming collection.
Asteroid – Midnight blue shimmer base, packed with tons of holo silver and gold stars.
Pomme Rouge Body Balm – (new product), formulated with the finest oils, this moisturizing and non sticky balm leaves a long lasting light layer of the Pomme Rouge scent. Perfect for fall, it’s a blend of sweet seasonal red apples and berries.
Pomme Rouge body lotion – enriched with aloe for a light feeling and scent.
Pomme Rouge hand soap – lightly scented, moisturizing heart shape mini soap.

I’m excited to see the rich shades and textures with what I consider to be the first mystery bag of fall! I’ve already tried one polish, Sugarberries, over a red creme and LOVE it. It has large reflective silver glitter that’s just stunning!

Have you jumped on this monthly subscription yet? It’s $12 per month for the mini mystery bag, and it remains my favorite box!

Summer Gel Polish Manicures

I wear gel nail polish most of the time in the summer. It’s so durable, and this summer it’s really helped me strengthen my nails. I thought I’d share a few of my most recent manis with you! I’d love to hear what polishes you are loving this summer!

 
Gelish You Glare, I Glow is my favorite bright purple gel nail polish. This is the only purple gel polish that I have that doesn’t fade at least a little. It stays vibrant for 2 weeks, if you actually wear polish for that long! The Summer 2013 collection, All About the Glow, is my favorite Gelish collection to date. I love brights, and every polish in that release is fantastic, color and formula wise. The eyeshadow I’m holding is Prestige Total Intensity Color Rush in “The Chase.” This is a gorgeous blue based purple with micro glitter. I have been using it as eyeliner, just smudged on my upper lash line. These shadows are SUPER long lasting and great for summer!

 

Red Carpet Manicure Sapphire and Ice was part of the Holiday 2013 duos, and is no longer available. I really love this deep blue shimmer, but the formula is a bit of a pain. There is major shrinkage, and I had to cure my nails two at a time. It also doesn’t have the opaque coverage that I hoped for. Aside from that, it’s really pretty, so I will use it occasionally.

Gelish Gossip Girl was one of my first gel polishes, and it remains one of my all time favorites to this day! This true hot pink creme formula is so easy to work with and smooth. There’s no fading and I’ve had the same bottle for over 2 years.
