I have my April Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag to show you today! This is a subscription service that is $25/month for the full size (which is what I get) and $10/month for the mini size. You get the same products in both bags - the mini size bag has smaller products and polishes. You typically get three polishes and three products in the bag and that was the case this month!

*NEW* China Glaze Glitter Polishes

Shinespark Polish The Light, The Heat Collection - Part 2

*Press Sample*

Today I have the second half of The Light, The Heat collection from Shinespark polish to show you. I am so glad the weather cooperated with me today! These polishes are photochromes, meaning they change in sunlight! Let's check out this fun collection!

First up is Periwinkle. Indoors it is a light lilac polish and in the sunlight it is a deeper lavender color. There is blue shimmer throughout the polish. I did three coats of all of these polishes with one coat of topcoat because they do dry matte.

Next up is Ocean. Ocean is a light blue polish indoors and in the sunlight it is a much deeper blue. There is also a nice blue shimmer running through this one as well. Ocean and Periwinkle had the biggest color shift for me.

Green Apple is a pastel green polish indoors that changes to a slightly deeper green in the sunlight. There is a light gold shimmer running throughout Green Apple. This one had the least amount of color shift for me.

Tangerine is a pastel orange polish indoors that shifts to a medium orange color in the sunlight. There is a light gold shimmer in this polish as well. I really like that the shimmer stands out in all of these whether you are indoors or in the sunlight.

The last polish in this half of the collection is Flamingo. It is a pastel pink polish indoors and is a deeper pink in the sunlight. This one has a blue shimmer running throughout it.

I had no issues with the formula of any of these polishes. They were the perfect consistency and went on very smoothly. This collection will be released on April 29th at 10 am CDT. They will be sold as a full collection, in half collections (thermals or photochromes) and individually. You can choose between full and mini sized polishes. Check out Shinespark Polish here

Shinespark Polish The Light, The Heat Collection - Part 1 Thermals

*Press Sample*

Today I have the first half of The Light, The Heat - a new collection from Shinespark Polish. I'm really excited to show this collection to you. Half of the polishes in this collection are thermals and half are photochromic (meaning they react to sunlight or the lack of sunlight.) This collection is going to be released on April 29th at 10:00 am CDT. The set of polishes I have to show you today are the thermals. This is my first time working with thermal polishes so it was really interesting and fun to do the swatches for this post. All of the swatches are three coats with topcoat. The first picture in each swatch shows what the polish looks like after it dries on my nails without any temperature manipulation.

Shinespark Nail Polish 80's Neon Collection

*Press Sample*

I have another collection from Shinespark Nail Polish to show you today! This is the 80's Neon Collection and it consists of seven neon creme polishes. There's also something I'm pretty excited about at the end of this post.

First up is Psych'd Purple. This is a neon purple polish. All of these polishes were opaque in 3 coats. These polishes do dry to a semi matte finish so I used one coat of ellagee's Glass topcoat over each one.

Bouncin' Blue is an electric blue polish. Like the other collection from Shinespark Polish, these have a delicate shimmer running through them. That pretty shimmer makes these unique to my collection. 

Glam Green is a bright green polish. All of these polishes have a good formula. Not too thick or thin and they apply smoothly to the nail. 

Yuppie Yellow is a highlighter yellow polish. All of these polishes are brighter in person than I could capture with my camera. 

Outrageous Orange is a safety cone orange polish. These polishes are super bright and none of them are layered over white. I'd imagine they're even brighter that way. 

Radical Red is a polish that I wouldn't really say is red. I would say it is a neon coral polish. It's a fantastic color!

Pumped Pink is a neon pink polish. Honestly, as I went through and swatched these polishes, every single one became a favorite. They have such a great formula and were really easy to apply. 

And guess what?!? These polishes watermarble! (Even for me!) I'm so excited about this because this is the first time I've ever successfully been able to watermarble. It is definitely not perfect, but I think it's great. Normally my watermarble attempts end up with a blob of mashed up colors on my nail. I'm excited to try again with different color combinations. For this one I used Pumped Pink, Yuppie Yellow and Glam Green. 

I'd love to hear what you think of this collection in the comments below. Do you see a favorite out of the bunch? You can check out all of the Shinespark polishes here. This collection is available in full and mini size sets and also in full and mini individual bottles. 

ETA: Molly is having a 20% off sale through 11:59pm tonight (4/3) on everything! Use code 700yay for 20% off. :0)
