The Yokai (妖怪) Collection

Today I have all three polishes from Rainbow Honey's Yokai Collection to show you. First of all, I just want to apologize that it took me so long to swatch these. The Yokai Collection was Rainbow Honey's limited edition Halloween collection, and I really wanted to have swatches up before Halloween, but it wasn't meant to be. Living in Australia I didn't get the polishes until November 1st (a day late, go figure), and then after that I got held up with university exams.

The Yokai (妖怪) are a class of supernatural monsters in Japanese folklaw. Naturally since I'm studying Japanese at uni and have an interest in Japanese culture, this collection sparked my interest. I'll introduce you to these three polishes one by one. *Note* this is going to be a long post, I'm sorry! I suggest clicking on the photos to enlarge these polishes for more detail.

ONI () 
The malevolent wild demon 
Depictions of Oni vary widely but usually portray them as hideous, gigantic ogre-like creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads. This is an Oni:


Rainbow Honey's 'Oni' may be wicked and supernatural, but with its myriad of glass flecks and multi-chromatic shimmer it is hard to call it hideous. I'm not entirely sure how to describe this polish. It appears black at first glance, but under some lights it's a distinctively coppery-brown colour. And in the sun - WOW. It throws amazing gold shimmer and purple flecks. This is two coats of 'Oni' with top coat:

Full sunlight - click to enlarge and see those beautiful purple flecks

Bottle shot - full sunlight

I really didn't think I was going to be too fond of this polish because I don't normally wear dark colours, but after seeing it in person in the sun I've completely changed my mind.  Application was lovely and smooth which always gets a thumbs up from me.


The magical white fox
Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. This can apply to everyday foxes, as well as the supernatural variety. Stories depict them as intelligent beings possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. Kitsune have the ability to shapeshift, and while some stories portray them using this ability to trick people, other stories show them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives. Supernatural Kitsune often have 9 tails.

Rainbow Honey's 'Kitsune' is a glorious nine-tailed creature: fiery, wise, and absolutely gorgeous. Rainbow Honey describes it as a cream base, however my bottle seems to lean a little more orange than other swatches that I've seen. This polish has plenty of gold flecks and a beautiful gold shimmer, along with small glitters in fiery tones of red and bronze. This is two coats of 'Kitsune' with top coat:

Full sunlight - gold shimmer evident on my pinkie

Bottle shot - full sunlight

This polish is stunning in person, and I desperately wanted to love it, I really did. I'm always attracted to lighter coloured polishes so I thought this would be my favourite of the three, but this one just did nothing for my skin tone (that's not to say it won't work on someone else). Other than the colour, for me there was another deal breaker. I really don't want to say this, because I thought Rainbow Honey could do no wrong, but sadly the application on this polish was the worst I have ever encountered. It was thick and chunky (and I can't work out why because it's not a glitter bomb) and it was a nightmare to get even. I couldn't get a clean line around my cuticle during clean up either. On the upside, top coat did smooth it out and it was very fast drying.  If the colour worked on me I would try adding a little thinner to try and sort out the thickness, but sadly I don't think I'll be wearing this one again :(


 KAWAKO (河子)
The Mischievous River Child
Kawako (also known as Kappa) are supernatural beings found in bodies of water. They love pranks and are very mischievous. They will look up women’s kimonos, steal crops, steal children, and often pass gas quite loudly (sound like anyone you know?). Children are one of their favourite meals. They are usually portrayed as having a shallow indent on the top of their heads. If a Kawako wants to venture onto the land then it has to keep this ‘bowl’ full of water at all times or it will become unable to move.


Rainbow Honey's 'Kawako' is depicted as everything from a water sprite to a river demon, erring on the gentler side. 'Kawako' is a rich, deep blue filled with silver and blue shimmer, and some elusive blue flakes. This is two coats of 'Kawako' with top coat:

Full sunlight - beautiful bright blue when it catches the light

Bottle shot - full sunlight

Kawako is amazing in direct sunlight, such a beautiful bright shade of blue (it's more evident in my photo of the bottle than my nail photo). I'm really not sure why the polish looks bumpy in my photos, because it is completely smooth in real life. It was easy to apply, my only gripe was the flakes, as they sometimes got stuck on the brush making the polish chunky at times. They're very hard to see on the nail as the polish drowns them, but if you look closely enough they are there even though they don't really catch the light. This one gets my approval simply because of the colour. I'm interested to try this one with some nail art.

So that's it! Unfortunately since this was a limited edition collection they're no longer available. However, Rainbow Honey is now taking pre-orders for her four Christmas polishes - The Holiday Collection. Swatches are starting to appear from some lucky bloggers who were given the polishes for review so if you want to see them I suggest googling because there aren't any swatches on the Rainbow Honey website. They look absolutely beautiful, but unfortunately I'll be giving them a miss. I know from past experience that they won't arrive in Australia in time for Christmas (pre-orders won't start shipping until December 5th) and even though the collection isn't strictly 'Christmassy' in terms of colour I would prefer to order Christmas polishes that I can wear before Christmas. The collection doesn't appear to be a limited edition though so I may order some further down the track, maybe when the next collection is released if they're still available then. After all, some of the shades are rather Wintery and it wont be Winter in Australia until June ;) To pre-order jump over to the Rainbow Honey website.

*If I got any Kanji wrong please correct me, I'm still learning!

Christmas Giveaway

As you've probably worked out from my poor attempt to recreate a playbill, I'm having a giveaway for Christmas. And before you start asking, yes this is open internationally :)

There's a lot of Christmas polishes around at the moment, but I still couldn't find exactly what I wanted to wear on my nails for Christmas day. I asked Angela from Gloss 'n Sparkle if she would kindly make me a custom polish, and even though she's a super busy lady she came to my rescue. Thanks Angela! So, in the Nailed Obsession spirit I've named the polish 'Christmas Obsession' and I have two bottles, one for me, and one for a very lucky reader (yep, that's you guys!).

In order for the polish to reach the winner by Christmas the giveaway will close on December 8th (since everyone is in different time zones keep an eye on the entry form for an exact time). The winner will then have 48 hours to respond to my email before I'll re-draw. Australia Post have advised me that the package will make it to the winner before Christmas if I send it express by the 12th. I'm somewhat sceptical, but I'll take their word for it.

So, I guess you're interested to see what it is I've asked Angela to put in this exclusive polish. Here's some swatches I've done up on my nail wheel (I wanted to save wearing mine on my nails until Christmas!). Unfortunately it was overcast this morning so I couldn't capture the true sparkliness of this polish, but there's holo silver stars, red and green hexes, smaller silver hexes, and micro gold glitter.

L-R: 1 coat over OPI's 'Black Onyx', Essie's 'Blanc', and OPI's 'Glitzerland'

After taking photos I realised that the stars were all in the same position on each nail. I swear I didn't place them there, Gloss 'n Sparkle glitters are just very well trained!

And finally, the moment you've been waiting for, the entry form. I've listed terms and conditions below the form so please give them a read before entering. I will be moderating the entries to make it fair for everyone, so please play nice, it's Christmas after all and you don't want to end up on Santa's naughty list!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  • Giveaway is open until December 8th 2012, 12:01am EST
  • The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond. Failure to respond within this time frame will result in a re-draw.
  • I WILL be moderating the entries. If your number is drawn for something that you haven't completed, I will re-draw a new winner. This isn't because I'm mean, it's simply to make it fair for everyone who's entered and have done the right thing.
  • This giveaway is open internationally, however if you know that you have trouble getting nail polish into your country please don't enter.
  • I've done my best to ensure that the polish will make it to you by Christmas by consulting Australia Post, however once the package leaves my hands I have no control over it. Should the polish arrive after Christmas please remember that it's not my fault!
  • I won't be held responsible for any taxes/fees that may need to be payed when the item enters your country, these will be the responsibility of the winner.
  • I won't be held responsible for any breakages during shipping. I will wrap the items to the best of my ability to avoid breakages, but please bear in mind that postage handlers aren't always careful.
  • I won't be held responsible for any lost or stolen packages. Unfortunately these things do occasionally happen and they are out of my control.
  • If you have any questions feel free to email me:

Somber Pusscat Party

As some of you saw in my last post, I let my boyfriend paint my nails. A lot of you commented on how cute the cat he painted on my thumb was, so I've used that as inspiration for this design. I hope you find it as cute when I do it as when he did it!

Partial sunlight

Overcast light

The base colour I've used is Emily de Molly's 'Somber Party'. 'Somber Party' is a light grey base with a lilac undertone filled with tiny pink, blue, purple, and holographic glitter. I've used two thickish coats which created opacity, but I could have added a third coat for maximum glittery effect. 'Somber Party' has beautiful smooth application, and it's perfect if you're after a more subtle glitter look.

To create my cats and paws, I used a couple of different sized dotting tools and China Glaze's 'Liquid Leather' polish. This design is easy for beginners, so I hope you'll give it a go. If you're not too confident with drawing the cat or using your dotting tools, do a couple of practice runs on a piece of paper first :) It's a simple design, but effective. I had customers at work asking me where I got my nail stickers from, they all thought I was joking when I said I painted them myself!

'Somber Party' bottle shot

Emily de Molly polishes are available from the etsy store if you live in Australia. If you're outside of Australia you can purchase from Shoppe Eclecticco (remember to set the currency to your own, the default is Singapore dollars which makes everything appear expensive). Shoppe Eclecticco will be having a restock of Emily de Molly and Gloss 'n Sparkle polishes later in the week (probably Wednesday). Emily de Molly polishes are also available from Llarowe, however they are completely out of stock at the moment.

My Boyfriend: The Artiste

Disclaimer: I beg of you, DO NOT judge the content of my blog based on this post alone. I promise the rest of my blog is MUCH BETTER. I should also give fair warning that the images you are about to see may disturb some readers. Proceed with caution...

So a little while ago my boyfriend suggested that he should paint my nails. I was shocked. Yes, I'm happy that he's supportive of my...errr....'habits'...but it came as a complete surprise to me that he would actually want to paint my nails. But I figured why not? We could wait until we were on holidays because then I wouldn't have to leave the house with what I could only imagine would be a disaster on my nails, and it would be an interesting couples activity to try. I figured how well he did would also be a good indication of how he actually feels about me haha.

I think from this point on I'll just let the photos do the talking. *Note* I didn't bother to do any clean up, I wanted to show the manicure's full effect :p

Left hand

Right hand (note the 'feature nail' on my index finger)

Since we did this at his house, I obviously couldn't bring my 100+ polish collection with me, so I asked him what colours he wanted to use. He said blue and purple, so I brought about 3 different shades of each with me, but apparently I didn't bring what he wanted (last I checked males couldn't see as many shades as females anyway). He ended up picking China Glaze's 'Frostbite' as a base and used  OPI's 'Plugged-In Plum' for his designs on top. He then finished with a coat of Essie's 'Golden Nuggets'.

To be honest, I'm not really sure what to make of this experience. It's not quite as disastrous as I had imagined, I had thought he would turn all evil on me and totally massacre my nails. I think he was either feeling lazy, or just playing it safe. Either way, I won't be turning to him for creative guidance anytime soon :p

I'm off to soak my nails in a giant barrel of remover now. You can expect a decent post from me tomorrow night as long as the weather is sunny in the morning so I can take photos before I head to work.

PVA Glue Base Coat Update (2)

After my previous failure when using PVA glue as a base coat (click here to see what went wrong) I've given it another go with a slightly better outcome. This time I applied the glue only to the middle of my nails, leaving a gap of a few millimetres around all four edges. This meant that my nail polish formed a seal over the glue so that water couldn't get in and moisten it.

This time my polish managed to last 48 hours, and had only come loose on one nail. The rest required a bit of assistance to remove the polish. I ran a cotton bud dipped in remover along the base of my nail to break the seal, and then coaxed the polish off with a wooden cuticle pusher. This is how it came off:

Polish after removal

Sorry for the poor quality photo, I had to use my phone camera. As you can see, the polish mostly came off in large chunks. It left some small patches of polish around the edges of my nails where the glue wasn't applied, but it came off very easily with some remover.

I'm still not satisfied with PVA glue as a base coat. While my application technique this time was more successful than my previous attempt, it did still fall off one of my nails and I doubt it would have lasted much longer on some of the others. Maybe it's the brand of glue I'm using? Those of you who have had success with PVA glue, care to share what brand of glue you're using? Or any other tips you might have?

Ode To The Elite

If you've been following me over the last few days you will know about my debacle with the PVA glue base coat (read my last two posts if you want to catch up). I was hoping to do some nail art this time, but I'm determined to get the PVA glue to work which means I have another glitter polish to show you today. If you're getting a bit bored with indie polishes (blasphemy!) check back soon. If all goes to plan I have what I anticipate will be a rather interesting design to show you either Sunday night or Monday morning ;)

Full sunlight

 The above photos are Emily de Molly's 'Ode To The Elite' layered over China Glaze's 'Man Hunt'. 'Ode To The Elite', put simply, is a bottle overflowing with holo goodness. There's silver holo hexes (of at least 3 different sizes), micro glitter, squares, bar glitter, butterflies, and stars in a clear base. This polish looks stunning layered over any dark colour, and it's so spectacular that I can't stop staring at my nails!

Bottle shot

Emily de Molly polishes can be purchased from the etsy store if you live in Australia. If you're outside of Australia you can purchase from Shoppe Eclecticco (remember to set the currency to your own, the default is Singapore dollars which makes everything appear expensive). Emily de Molly polishes are also available from Llarowe, however the majority of colours are currently sold out.

P.S. For those of you who are interested, I'll do another PVA glue update after I remove this mani.

P.P.S. Femme Fatale Cosmetics (another wonderful Australian indie brand) will make their international debut at Shoppe Eclecticco 11pm (Singapore time) this Saturday. There's limited stock so don't miss out!

PVA Glue Base Coat Update (1)

As some of you will know from my last post, I tried using PVA glue (also known as wood glue, white glue, craft glue, or Elmers glue) as a base coat for the first time. We all know how hard glitter polishes can be to remove, so the idea is that by using glue as a base coat it will be easy to remove your polish as it will peel off (with some help). I was always very sceptical of this, thinking that it would just peel off after a day or so. Alanna at Pretty Purple Polish did a longevity test, and her polish lasted 5 days with only minor tip wear. Sadly, I wasn't so lucky, I had my polish on for 24 hours, took a shower, and then an hour later it literally just fell off. Unfortunately, I was at work when it started falling off and I have no idea where my polish went (hopefully not into some poor customer's bag with their newly purchased lingerie).

As you can see, my polish fell off in one complete piece (sorry for the poorly lit photo):

My polish after literally falling off my nails

Normally, I'd cheer and say this has worked, but clearly something went wrong because my polish should have lasted longer than it did. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it was my application. Admittedly I was a bit haphazard with my application, figuring that whatever I accidentally got on my skin I could just peel off. Wrong. Whatever is on your skin will dry attached to what is on your nail, so there's no way to just peel it off your skin without lifting what's on your nail. Also, I think because I put the glue right up to the edge of my nail this allowed water to get underneath (hence it lifting an hour after my shower). I think in order for it to work your polish needs to completely cover the edges of the glue to form a seal.

I'm not going to give up on this, because I'm convinced that it's going to make removal of glitter polishes alot easier. In future I'm going to try to be more precise with my application, and maybe not take the glue all the way to the edge of my nail. Has anyone tried using glue as a base and experienced the same problem?

If you want to know more about using PVA glue as a base coat, Alanna covers the process extensively on her blog Pretty Purple Polish.

A Little Kindness

I've had this polish sitting in my untried indies pile for FAR TOO LONG (it has many friends in a similar situation). Today I'm showing you Rainbow Honey's 'A Little Kindness'. I couldn't decide what colour I wanted to layer this amazing polish over so I've done a pastel skittle mani. Sorry for the strange finger angles, I find it really hard to hold round bottles for some reason...

Full sunlight


Dodgy indoors lighting - but look at that beautiful pink shimmer!

The colours I've used are:
Thumb - OPI's 'Got A Date To-Knight!'
Index - China Glaze's 'Lemon Fizz'
Middle - China Glaze's 'For Audrey'
Ring - Essie's 'Bikini So Teeny'
Pinkie - OPI's 'Do You Lilac It?'

'A Little Kindness' is from Rainbow Honey's 'Equestria' Collection, which was inspired by the My Little Pony ponies. 'A Little Kindness' was inspired by Fluttershy:

Meet Fluttershy

'A Little Kindness' has rose, white, gold, and soft green glitters floating in a delicate and sheer yellow base with an iridescent pink shimmer. It's beautiful. It looks stunning with a shiny top coat, but if you want to really amplify the pink shimmer in the base try adding a matte top coat. You can buy Rainbow Honey polishes here (I also have a link on the right hand side of my page to make future access easy for you guys).

Bottle shot (from Rainbow Honey)

On another note, I'm using PVA glue (also known as wood glue, white glue, craft glue, or Elmers glue) as a base coat for the first time. As you may or may not have heard, PVA glue *apparently* makes a great base coat for glitter polishes as you can peel it off rather than scrubbing at your nails trying to remove all the glitter. If you want to know more about this method, I recommend checking out Alanna's blog Pretty Purple Polish where she shows you how it works and also does a longevity test. I have to say I felt a little bit insane painting my nails with glue, but I'm curious to see how it goes! I'll do an update post once I've removed this mani :)

And just for a bit of bonus fun, my mani matches my outfit!

Butterfly Wings

Well guys, I'm officially on holidays from uni for the next 3 months. I'll still be working, but hopefully I'll have lots of spare time to focus on the blog. I have a few things that I'm very excited about that I'll be letting you guys know about over the coming months, but all good things take time so you'll have to be patient ;)

So, today's design. I'm running low on nail polish remover so using glitter was a definite no-no (sorry giant list of untried indies). Luckily for you guys, that means nail art!

Full sunlight


Full sunlight (my camera clearly couldn't handle the holo goodness)

These butterfly wings required several steps, and were so messy that this is definitely the sort of thing I only ever want to do once (so count yourselves lucky because I very nearly didn't finish).  I'll walk you through step by step:

Step 1: Create a gradient on your nails. I used OPI's 'You're A Pisa Work' and 'Need Sunglasses?'. I used the sponging method found on Nailasaurus' blog here.

Step 2: Cover your gradient with a coat or two of linear holo topcoat. I used Gloss 'n Sparkle's 'Spectra Flair' which is now available internationally on Shoppe Eclecticco (along with Emily de Molly polishes). Aussie girls can still buy from the Gloss 'n Sparkle etsy store.

Step 3: You're going to do some stamping! I've used the black konad polish and the wing designs from Nailz Craze plate NC01. You can find all the details for purchasing the plate on the Nailz Craze facebook page. If you're new to stamping I have a walk-through of my first stamping experience here.

Step 4: Take a dotting tool and your holo top coat and place some dots in the black section at the top of the nail. Then apply your clear top coat, clean up the mess you made all over your fingers sponging on your gradient and stamping and then go pass out somewhere from exhaustion

So what do you think? I think the final effect is quite striking, and probably worth all the mess (even though my fingers do still have pink patches on them despite doing a clean up twice). Let's hope I can make this mani last a few days considering all the effort that went in to it!

Once In A Blue Moon

Hey guys, quick post today because I'm still studying for exams (my last two are tomorrow, yippee!). Today I have a special polish to show you. This is 'Blue Moon' by Emily de Molly. Unfortunately for you guys, this polish was made exclusively for a group of Aussie bloggers so you won't be able to buy it anywhere, but I still wanted to show it to you because it's absolutely stunning.

Full sunlight


Full sunlight

(You'll have to excuse the state of my cuticles, with two exams tomorrow my cuticles aren't exactly high on my priority list).

This is one coat of 'Blue Moon' over China Glaze's 'Liquid Leather'. 'Blue Moon' contains several different sizes of vibrant blue hexes, along with silver holo moons and stars, and tiny blue and pink glitters in a clear base. Amazing right? If you like this polish you should definitely check out the other beautiful Emily de Molly polishes. If you're in Australia you can buy from the etsy store. For all you international girls Emily de Molly polishes will be available tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11pm Singapore time from Shoppe Eclecticco along with Gloss 'n Sparkle. Check out the Shoppe Eclecticco facebook page for all the details! Emily de Molly will also be available from Llarowe later in the month :)

Winter Hyacinth

Sorry it's been awhile since my last post, I'm right in the middle of university exams at the moment. Two down, two to go! My Snow White mani actually managed to last five days with only minimal tip wear which was convenient considering my lack of time. It must be a record of longevity as far as my manis are concerned! Since my brain is fried right now I'm not going to attempt any nail art. Not that I want to remind you of my past brain-dead efforts, but we know how they have turned out (hint: it looked like someone or something threw up on my nails). HOWEVER! This does give me a chance to catch up on my untried indies (there are currently 18 of them because I can't keep up with my spending habits). I used to feel like I was being lazy showing you guys an indie polish rather than nail art, but the feedback I've received from you has told me that you're quite happy to see indie polish reviews, so I'm not going to beat myself up over it anymore. With that being said, here's one of my newest indie acquisitions:

Full sunlight

Partial sunlight - amazing holos!

Full sunlight

This is Femme Fatale's 'Winter Hyacinth'. 'Winter Hyacinth' is a soft teal creme polish with white diamonds and hexes, as well as fuchsia and rose hexes both in metallic and holographic finishes. This polish is quite sheer (almost jelly-like), and while it is apparently opaque in three coats I can't stand VNL and didn't want to risk it so I've layered two coats over China Glaze's 'For Audrey'. I swatched three coats of 'Winter Hyacinth' on it's own on my nail wheel and it's very close in colour to what's on my nails, so I recommend 'For Audrey' as a good base colour. If you want to see 3 coats on it's own check out Bec's photos at Nail Gun XS.

Application of 'Winter Hyacinth' was lovely and smooth, and it's creme/jelly-like consistency meant no streaking. One coat was a little patchy but it evened out with two. It appears to be quite runny in the bottle but I had no issues with it pooling in my cuticles when applying it. I didn't need to fish for the glitters either, which is always a nice surprise :)

Bottle shot

Femme Fatale Cosmetics is another great Australian indie brand. This was my first order from Sophie, and her customer service and shipping times were fantastic. I also purchased 'Sinister Calling' and 'Shimmering Snowcap' and I have to say I've absolutely fallen in love with all 3 of them. Currently Femme Fatale nail polish is only available to Australians due to strict shipping restrictions, but Sophie also sells cosmetics which are available internationally. Don't despair though, Femme Fatale nail polishes will be available internationally in December from Harlow & Co, as well as Shoppe Eclecticco (which will also stock other Aussie indie brands Gloss 'n Sparkle and Emily de Molly very shortly). All 3 brands also have facebook pages if you want to stay up to date with their collections.

Snow White

This is a mani that I've had planned for awhile now, I was just waiting for my nails to get a bit longer again before I tried it. I'm a massive Disney fan, and when I was younger people used to joke that I looked like Snow White because of my jet black hair (which my mum decided should be cut into a bob) and porcelain white skin. So even though Ariel was always my favourite Disney princess, I've always had a soft spot for Snow White.

Partial sunlight

Partial sunlight

The inspiration for this mani came from CutePolish's Cinderella nails. The thing I love about this design is that it's easy enough for beginners to try too. I was going to do a tutorial for this, but you might as well just watch CutePolish's video :)

I bought my temporary tattoos on ebay from this seller. The set contains 2 of each of the 6 main princesses for about AU$2.90. They look spotty in my photos but the print is quite smooth to the naked eye. I've used Essie's 'Blanc' as the white base for the tattoo. Normally I'd do my feature nail on my ring finger, but my middle nail is a bit longer at the moment so I put my tattoo on that finger so I could fit more of Snow White on. On my remaining fingers I've done a base of Revlon's 'Rio Mango' and done a glitter gradient using OPI's 'Gone Gonzo!'.

So, easy peasy isn't it? Who is your favourite Disney princess?
