Zoya Summer Pixie Dust Collection

More Pixies! Buy all the Pixies! I am loving these textured polishes so much!

This is the Zoya Pixie Dust Summer Edition! All of these have a super glittery matte textured finish. The formula on all of them was GREAT.

Destiny is a gorgeous coral pink with gold and coral glitter. This is three coats, with Solange sandwiched in on the ring finger. It really makes a polish glow!

Solange is like gold dust on my fingers! It's a bright yellow gold with gold and yellow glitter and a little orange shimmer. This is two coats.

Beatrix is a nice tangerine orange. It's bright, but softer than bright orange. It has gold, yellow, and orange glitter. This is two coats.

Miranda is a pretty fuchsia berry with silver and pink glitters. This is two coats.

Stevie is a pretty pale lilac purple with silver glitter. This was two coats.

Liberty is a bright royal blue with even brighter blue and silver glitter. This was two coats, but it needed three.
 All of these formulas were really great and I love love love the textured finish. Liberty and Destiny needed 3 coats and the others were 2. They look so pretty layered too!

Franken Femme Stardust

Hey ladies and gents! Today I have a franken for you from Franken Femme. She has a polish blog where she posts recipes and swatches of frankens she's made. She's also considering selling, so if you like her stuff, let her know!

This is Stardust! I named it with the help of some friends since Franken Femme didn't have a name for it.

This is a super pale mint blue with iridescent glassfleck shimmer. 

Here's a good view against white so you can really see the color of it.

And it glows! It's the little glitters or something that really glows and not so much the base polish. I think that makes it even cooler, and that's why I named it Stardust :). 
Check out Franken Femme's blog for some cool frankening ideas, recipes, and resources! If you'd like to buy a franken from Franken Femme, see which ones she has for sale (this post), or ask her if she'll make you a custom one, you can email her at frankenfemme@gmail.com.

Rainbow Honey Robot Collection

Here is the new Rainbow Honey Robot Collection!!

All of the polishes except Yoshimi have the same finish - metallic with silver flakies. 

I absolutely love the art they did for this collection! I wish it were on the bottles too! Here is a little info on the collection and colors too.

Femme Bot is a fuschia metallic.

The formula was good with two coats.

Dusty Bot is a pale silvery purple metallic.

The formula was good with two coats.

Lucky Bot is a bright fresh green metallic.

The finish on this one was really odd. It was drying a bit before I even finished a coat, almost like a matte polish. It was doable, just weird. This is two coats.

Skyward Bot is an ocean blue metallic.

The formula was good with two coats.

Bitty Love Bot is a light teal metallic.

This formula was a lot like Lucky Bot's - quick to dry and weird. This is two coats.

Yoshimi is a clear base filled with black and white squares of various sizes and small iridescent glitters.

This is one coat of Yoshimi over Bondi New York Chasing the Sun. The formula had no issues.

This is totally my favorite polish in the collection! It's a little Connect the Dots-esque, but a totally different take. The iridescent glitters really make it unique.
The metallic collection is a little done, but I do like how they paired a metallic collection with the robot theme. Very cute idea! The foily collection reminds me of the older Color Club Foiled collection of metallic polishes. The colors are mostly different though, so if you dig metallic/foil polishes, hit this one up!
These polishes are available on Rainbow Honey's website for $10 each or $50 for the set of 6. The mini set is $25. Don't worry if you're not in the US, she has lots of other retailers!
