I was on the receiving end of a lovely RAOK from Jin of Superficially Colorful! It was a box containing three of her thermal polishes.
I have for you today Superficially Colorful Giggly! It is a hot pink in warm temperatures and a deep purple in cool temperatures. And the best part? It contains little pink flecks for ultimate depth.
Application was flawless. Pictured above is two coats for maximum opacity. Dry time was fantastic!
Thank you, Jin :)
I also received a big ol’ pack of nail art polishes from Tony of Tmart to review. I’m not a big nail art person… I’ve never really done it. I don’t have the patience, nor am I artistically inclined like many nail bloggers. But since I had this pack of 24 2-way nail pens, I thought, might as well give it a shot.
These nail art pens come with a brush and a fine pen tip. Attempted to simulate tiger stripes with the black pen. Application was relatively pain free. The color is opaque. Only one coat was needed for each stripe. It was not watery or thing.
The only issue is quality control might not be as great on these. I could see brush hairs getting dislodged being a big issue. The brush is not completely uniform. But 24 colors for under $15 and free shipping? Not really something to complain about. Buy through Tmart here.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I am all about cutesy manicures and over-the-top glitters. Cue Rainbow Honey Papillon… butterfly… from the new Midnight Garden collection.
This is a great glitter topper with purple and pink glitters, holographic-y particles, and enormous butterflies.
Pictured above is one coat, and one coat is all you need! I swear, Dee from Rainbow Honey is the master of glitter toppers. Perfect suspension, just enough glitter dispersed, no fishing needed!
To die for. Visit the Rainbow Honey website here.
My ring finger is Rainbow Honey Summer Blossom. This is layered over China Glaze Ahoy.
Rainbow Honey Papillon was sent to me for review.

China Glaze Ahoy came out quite some time ago back in 2011. However, this magenta, shimmery crelly remains one of my favorites to this day.
The formula for this is flawless. Pictured above is two coats at full opacity. Just look at that shimmery, shiny goodness. It is such a dream to apply.
I’m so not a pink person, but this has captured my heart.

Cult Nails Midnight Mist is a fantastic olive creme with copper shimmer. I am a sucker for fugly cremes, and I am an even bigger sucker for cremes with shimmer. They are probably my favorite type of finish.
This one had flawless application. Pictured above is two thin coats, but you can get away with one thick coat.
Midnight Mist was a limited edition color from the Cult Nails Midnight Masquerade collection. The only color left from this one is Ms. Conduct, unfortunately.

Cult Nails Masquerade is an awesome multichrome with teal, purple, pink, orange, and gold shimmer. Didn’t really get a good shot of the latter two colors, but it’s there in low light. Promise.
Pictured above is three coats. It’s a little on the sheer side, and dries kinda slowly. Take your time with this one.
This was available through the limited edition Midnight Masquerade collection.
