“I Found a Pot of Gold!”
2 coats “IFAPOG!” over 2 Coats Sally Hansen “Co-Bolt Blue”
Now on this one I did have to do some fishing for the diamonds.
If fishing isn’t done, I get an average of 1 diamond per decently sized coat (average of one also means sometimes none!).
What I do really like about this polish is that the base the diamonds sit in is a mix of both gold glitter AND a light sprinkling of holographic glitter so the entire effect is very sparkly in the right lights.
You can find “IFAPOG!” at local Sephora stores and at Sephora Online retailing for $9.50/Bottle.
3 Coats “Gilded Angel”, in sun
Rainbow Honey launches the holiday 2012 collection Dec. 5th!

Serum No. 5′s recent debut introduced us to a DontStopCantQuitIt glow in the dark lacquer called “Day Glow”, which by judging how quickly it has sold out I believe it to be several of your guys’ party spirit animal, plus pink mermaid dreams in “Spring Into Love”, and even a mint that is in fact To Be.
Prepare yourselves because today I’m bringing in the NUDITY! (minus “ity”)
Gold glitter, warm fleshy nude, iridescence and more..
Now let me take you further into the potion cabinet to present you this Serum…
See if you are keen on this one after the jump!!
As I waved this a few inches from Mr. NB’s face with a smirk, I saw him bite his tongue.
After thoroughly inspecting each one, he looked up at me with the most serious look I’ve seen in a long time. “Oh no” I thought, “it’s time for the stop buying polish talk”.
A most serious voice accompanied the most serious face. “No lie, that is the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen”. He used the word “gorgeous”!! Definitely a genuine reaction.
“Girl’s Gotta Eat” is a glitter-fest jewel box packed with large platinum hexes, small gold hexes and small holo hexes.
You may find a new display at your local target featuring a lot of interesting duo-chrome, fleck, shimmer and glitter. These bottles may look like ugly little sinful boots, but this time it’s worth it to bite the bullet, take a gulp, savor the grimace and check out (what I believe are) limited edition Target exclusives.
Supposedly set to official release in August, myself and a few other lucky lacquer lovers have been seeing these displays pop up early. There are 10 shades, two of which I picked up.
“I Love You Cherry Much”, “Iris My Case”, “Look at Me, Look at Me”, “You’re S-teal the One”, “Nicole’s Nickel”, “Just Busta Mauve”, “Pink-nic in the Park”, “Great Minds Pink Alike”, “Mer-Maid for Each Other”, “For Gold Times Sake”
Here is a stock photo that features the two I picked up (sorry, couldn’t get the whole collection this time, guys!)
I picked up “Mer-Maid for Each Other”, what looks to be a Chanel “Peridot”/OPI “Lizard” dupe (BUT ISN’T! You can see the swatches and comparison for this polish HERE), and “For Gold Times Sake”, one that really caught my interest.
