Mint and Magic Manicure

I had such a hard time deciding on which of the Rainbow Honey polishes to use first!! I'm telling you- they are all beyond gorgeous and look even better than I thought they would! One way or another, I picked The Element of Magic- a lovely purple based polish with tons of gorgeous glitters packed on in there! There are even some holo specks!! I think that is exactly what gives this polish its "element of magic" <-- Eh? See what I did there?!

I wanted to try something a little different with this manicure. A variation of a funky french. I looked through my stash to find the perfect color to offset my new polish! I love the way purple and green look together, so I went with Ulta Mint Condition as my base color. I applied 2 coats. Next, I took The Element of Magic and began my work on the nail tips. I brought the polish down further on one side of the nail and left everything uneven, for a modified drippy nail. I went with 2 coats of The Element of Magic just to give it a deeper coverage.

Macro of goodness!!!

I'm super bummed that I'll have to take this off tomorrow. I worked today and my nails chipped so bad! Nothing to do with the polish- just me being careless!

I can't wait to try out the other colors! This one was amazing and I found myself staring wide eyed in awe as I applied it to the nail. Super easy application and my lamp was catching the glitter in such an amazing way. I feel these pictures don't even do the polish justice!

Rainbow Honey can be found HEREHERE, and HERE.
