THE RAINBOW HONEY PRODUCTS FEATURED IN THIS POST WERE SENT TO ME FOR REVIEW.
When I was first asked by Annette of Shoppe Eclecticco if I would like to review an upcoming collection from Rainbow Honey, I was expecting the signature glitters. Instead, I was surprised to see that the collection consisted of five shimmery metallics and a black-and-white glitter topper.
Here are the details from the press release on The Robot Collection:
A cute and futuristic collaboration between Rainbow Honey and illustrator Mary Winkler.
To create the collection, Rainbow Honey’s Chief Designer, Dee Maldonado, took inspiration from anime, video games, super cheesy B films, and the work of Mary Winkler, illustrator, jewelry and textile designer.
The Robot Collection features six new lacquers:
- Bitty Love Bot – Sparkling metallic aqua
- Femme Bot – Sparkling metallic peony
- Dusty Bot – Sparkling metallic lavender
- Lucky Bot – Sparkling metallic agave
- Skyward Bot – Sparkling metallic cerulean
- Yoshimi – A truly mod black & white combination of glitters sprinkled with a bit of iridescence
To bring the robots to life, Dee collaborated with illustrator Mary Winkler. “I doodled out several designs with my little robot friend before settling on the final piece, knowing it was just right for Rainbow Honey,” says Mary. Dee and the Rainbow Honey Team are thrilled with the outcome and excited to feature her work for this collection. “It’s got stars, hearts, and the world’s cutest little robot: Bitty Love Bot,” explains Dee. “I couldn’t love it more!”

Today, 22 March, is World Water Day. Naturally, I proposed it as a theme for #SGSwatchFest, with blue as the colour to feature. Since it’s also Friday, I decided to do a 2-in-1 mani with Flakie Friday.
For my base colour, I used SpaRitual Crystal Waters, as much for the name as the colour. This is a shimmery metallic shade. It was on the sheer side but built up nicely with three thin coats. I didn’t have a major issue with the application. However, as you can see, it’s the type of finish that leaves brush marks. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I suppose? Still a beautiful blue though.
All the photos were taken in the late morning sun.
I shared with you Ozotic Scatter Chrome 912 on Tuesday. I wore that polish on my left hand. On my right, I wore Ozotic Scatter Chrome 915. As with 912, this has a base that is at least duochrome, although it’s more like multi-chrome to me. In addition, there is a generous spread of scattered holo particles to give it a rainbow sparkle!Continue reading»
Hot on the heels of the new Sugar and Beam ranges, Ozotic recently unveiled yet another new range, Scatter Chrome. When piCture pOlish first shared a bottle pic of the shades, my first reaction was that they looked multi-chrome. While piCture pOlish said they’re not, the two I’ve tried so far – 912 and 915 – are definitely at least duochrome, if not multi-chrome! In addition, the unique thing of this range is the addition of Ozotic’s signature scattered holo that looks flake-like.
Today, I’ll share with you Ozotic 912, a shade that is mainly violet but also shifts to pink, brown, orange, and gold. The effects may not be as dramatic as shades like Ozotic 505, but the colour is definitely not a static one!Continue reading»
The theme for Challenge Day 27 is Inspired by Artwork. So many different works by my favourite artists came to mind. In the end, because I was not feeling up to detailed nail art, I opted for something with bling. Lots of bling.
The work of art that today’s mani was inspired by is Damien Hirst’s sculpture, For the Love of God. I often refer to this as simply the “diamond skull”.Continue reading»
The theme for Challenge Day 21 is Inspired by a Colour. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about it initially.
And then, on the day I received the new A-England Gothic Beauties collection, I was so excited I did a skittles swatch immediately. I was trying to figure out when the best time to post them was when I realised they would be perfect for today’s theme, since they were based on essentially the same colour – black! Love it when I can kill two birds with one stone (not literally, of course)!
And so, I present to you: A-England Dorian Gray; Jane Eyre; Lady of Shalott; Ophelia; and Tess d’Urbervilles.Continue reading»
