Circus by Andrea Somersault + Rainbow Honey A Little Kindness

I have a brand new brand of nail polish to show you! Circus by Andrea's Choice in the color Somersault arrived as a nice surprise in my MyGlam bag. As far as I can tell, the whole line will be available starting in the fall, the only ones available now are random colors from the MyGlam bag for July. The one they sent me, Somersault, I was kind of iffy about. Yellows tend to be bad on my skintone, and cremes are also problematic for me. But I said eff it, and immediately did a mani with it.

The formula for Somersault was surprisingly opaque. Most yellows are usually thin and awful. The opaqueness was nice, but on the downside, it was pretty streaky/thick. With a little bit of thinner I think it would be stellar though. Also, the dry time was pretty spectacular. I waited between each coat at least a few minutes to prevent drag, and they dried really quick. I did end up having to do four coats because of the streakiness, but I was totally pleased with the application otherwise. It was thick enough that I barely had to do any cleanup around the edges! It didn't run or pool or anything! Just streak. Four coats + one coat of Seche Vite.

Super rich, buttery yellow! Gives me a liiittle bit of lobster hands, but the color is growing on me. Of course I wore it like this all of five minutes before adding a two coats of Rainbow Honey A Little Kindness.

A Little Kindness by Rainbow Honey is a MONSTER to apply! Thick, draggy mess. BUT SO PRETTY. It's one of those polishes that you love and hate at the same time. I just got a mini, but it seems that the formula has too much suspension base, and needs to be thinned like crazy. But I was determined to do the whole mani without messing with the formula, so you can see some of the gloppier places in the pics.

The color itself is amazing! It's a super sheer base with no discernible color to it, with a raspberry pink microglitter flash, large pink and gold hexes, iridescent smaller green glitters, white glitters, and smaller pink and gold glitters. I can imagine how awesome this color would look over black because of the pink flash and the white glitters don't show up as well on this lighter base.

Not to mention, this color is based on Fluttershy from My Little Ponies Friendship is Magic, one of my favorites! When I was putting this mani on yesterday, I had my Fluttershy tshirt from Hot Topic on, and I'd done my eyes in yellow, pink, and green. Total nerd moment, hah! Enjoy!
