Rainbow Honey 20% Cooler and Sakura Matsuri

Hey there!  Today I've got some swatches of a couple polishes I won in a giveaway from Norway Nails!  Norway Nails is a new distributor website, which carries a bunch of different brands including Rainbow Honey, Picture Polish, Man Glaze, A England, Femme Fatale, Pretty Serious, and some others.  Her prices are pretty on par with any store here in Scandinavia, taxes are so high that prices are forced to be as well.  The benefits of ordering from Wenche are beautiful packaging, great customer service, and faster shipping than ordering from the US.  Now that international shipping prices have gone up so much, I can't save too much by shopping from the US.  Norway Nails also ships places other than Scandinavia, you just need to send her a message to order.  So, on to the swatches!

These are my first Rainbow Honey polishes.  The first one is Sakura Matsuri, "The Sakura Matsuri Namesake is full of pink and white blossoms, adorned by holographic and iridescent glitters."  This polish is very pretty and delicate.  I chose to layer one coat over a peach base, H&M Make Me Blush from the Snow White collection.  I used 2 coats of MMB.  The flowers were easy to get out of the bottle and lie mostly flat on my curved nails.  The edges may have stuck up a bit, but nothing terribly annoying.

The second polish I won is 20% Cooler, "A shimmery and sheer light blue base with a veritable rainbow of glitter that promises to make any old manicure at least 20% Cooler."  I love that this is quite literal, because the blue shimmer will make your base polish a cooler tone!  The base I used for this is Lancôme Gris Angora, which is a sort of purple toned gray.  I love a multi-colored glitter, so this one was definitely my favorite of the two.  This is one coat over two coats of GA.

So thank you very much to Norway Nails for having such awesome giveaways!
