Rainbow Honey - Heisenberg

Happy Breaking Bad day everyone!! Today is the season premiere of the final episodes of Breaking Bad and I can't wait to see what is in store for Jesse and Walter aka Heisenberg after that absolutely insane cliffhanger of an ending!  Rainbow Honey created a special Limited Edition polish just for this very occasion that in no way resembles a certain blue glass substance *cough* Ummmm resemblance at all. This polish is absolutely perfect and  is definitely up to Mr. White's high standards of quality.

Heisenberg is a beautiful mixture of silver, blue, and holographic glitter in a clear base. Formula wise it was good and was not goopy at all. It was easy to apply and the glitter coverage is great. I believe you could get this opaque on it's own in three coats but I chose to apply two coats over Cult Nails Party Time to help give it an extra blue tint. This glitter isn't a topcoat eater either and was smooth after just one coat of Seche Vite. I did add an extra one just in case because sometimes it takes a while for the topcoat to get eaten.

Heisenberg is the Limited Edition polish of the month over at Rainbow Honey and is available on it's own for $10 a bottle or will come free with a purchase of $50 or more.

NOTD Stamping with Zoya Sunshine

So another obsession I have had lately besides texture polishes is stamping over texture polishes. For this look I started with a base of Zoya Sunshine and decided to go for a romantic scene so I used Sinful Shine Wisp to stamp cherry blossom branches and a cute little couple under a tree onto my nails. The branches and flower are from a Born Pretty Store plate and the accent finger of the tree and little boy and girl kissing is from Winstonia. The pink blossoms of the flower are Zoya Jolene.

Zoya - Sunshine

I have a slight obsession with texture polish but that isn't anything new so when the new fall Zoya pixies were released I kinda had to have them all right that second. The one I knew I had to try first as soon as I ripped open the package? Sunshine! My two favorite colors are sunshine yellow and blue anything for nails so a gorgeous blue Pixie Dust with the name Sunshine? Yeah, that one was made for me! Sunshine definitely didn't disappoint either. It was completely opaque in just two coats and had a quick dry time. Like all pixies it wore like iron and had the same great sparkle you come to expect with pixie dusts.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Butterfly Stroke

Butter-Fly Stroke is a great yellow polish from the Insta-dri line. I found it a few weeks ago at Target on clearance and since I have a yellow addiction I just had to pick it up. Even though Insta-Dri polish formula are usually great coverage in one to two coats this one did take three but still wasn't that bad considering yellows usually suck when it comes to formula. The first two coats were streaky but the third coat fixed it. I topped it off with a layer of Seche Vite. Yellow polishes are one of my favorite colors to wear so I am glad to have found another good one for my collection. I can't wait to try it as a stamping polish either and will make sure to post here the results.
