Bissu Mysterious Dark Bissu Mysterious Dark

Bissu Mysterious Dark is a color I picked up from Mexico a few years ago and just got around to trying. I’m a sucker for these fugly goldish brown colors. And when they have little flecks in them? I’m dead. Must have. Doesn’t matter.

Pictured above is two coats. This applied evenly, smoothly, and just like a dream. I’m not sure if you can get it now, but I found it in a little store off a side street in Cozumel.

Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape

July 24th, 2014 · swatches

The Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape collection introduces 12 new cremes, shimmers and glitters into the brand’s current lineup. Everything is so ridiculously bright and fun! Today, I have for you a jelly, shimmer, and glitter from the collection.

Rainbow Honey Control Summer Mixtape

Rainbow Honey Control is a bright, hot, hot pink with bits of shimmer. It is so popping and eye-catching, wow. Pictured above is two coats, though I could have gotten away with just one thin coat. This dries slightly matte without topcoat.

Rainbow Honey I Wanna Get Better Summer Mixtape

Rainbow Honey I Wanna Get Better is a fantastic orange jelly with little pastel glitters in all sorts of shapes and sizes. This was on the sheerer side and required three thin coats for full opacity. I found that the glitters tended to sink in the base and it was difficult to fish them out without getting a thick lump of polish.

Rainbow Honey Elevate Summer Mixtape Rainbow Honey Elevate Summer Mixtape

Rainbow Honey Elevate is a funky glitter with tons of blue hexes and pinks. It looks great layered over Control and I Wanna Be Better to add some extra pop. Pictured above is one coat. This did not have the fishing problem that I Wanna Be Better had. All glitter was perfectly suspended in the base for easy application.

The Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape collection is available now via the Rainbow Honey website. Each color retails for $10, or you can purchase the entire collection for $90 (full sized) or $45 (minis).

These were sent to me for review.

Zoya Arlo

Zoya ArloZoya Arlo

Zoya Arlo is a sheer, magenta jelly, textured polish packed with glitter from the Summer 2014 Pixie Dust collection. Pictured above is two coats. This is my favorite of the trio.

This is very, very, very gritty. I think of it more as a magenta nail polish glue with glitter stuffed in it. The color is the least sheer of the three Summer Pixie Dusts for 2014 and is nearly opaque with two coats.

It dries quickly, wears like iron, and doesn’t chip under insane pressure. Also, it was surprisingly not a nightmare to remove.

Buy through Zoya for $8.

Zoya Ginni

Zoya GinniZoya Ginni

Zoya Ginni is a sheer, pink jelly, textured polish packed with glitter from the Summer 2014 Pixie Dust collection. Pictured above is two coats.

This is very, very, very gritty. I think of it more as nail polish glue kissed with a soft pink color with glitter stuffed in it. The color is incredibly sheer, but with the density of the glitter, most of your nail is covered anyway. I wouldn’t add more than three coats; otherwise it gets very lumpy.

It dries quickly, wears like iron, and doesn’t chip under insane pressure. Also, it was surprisingly not a nightmare to remove.
