Illamasqua Jo'mina and Rainbow Honey The Element of Magic

Hi there everyone!  It's been a busy couple of days here spent packing Lacquer Convention orders, but as of this evening everything has been filled.  The last packages are heading to the post office in the morning!  I managed to find about twenty minutes to paint my nails and snap some pictures, so I decided to toss this fun combo on!

Firstly, let's marvel at Jo'mina.  This is a vibrant light purple creme by Illamasqua that I didn't know if I would love because of my fear of lighter purples that head into lavender and lilac territory... But Jo'mina is just so bright and fabulous.

I'm really kicking myself for not trying Illamasqua's polishes before this.  After Baptiste, I was completely blown away, and Jo'mina is just amazing as well.  These photos show two coats with no top coat.  The formula is smooth and dreamy, though I did have to make sure I wiped off the stem of the brush or I had a little problem with running.  It isn't anything super terrible though.  Totally worth it!

Yeah, I'm obsessed with this polish now... Soooo baaaad!  I never thought I would be so happy there isn't a Sephora nearby to go shop at!

Here's a little The Element of Magic tossed on top.  You guys are probably thinking, "Gosh, not another glitter along the cuticle look!"  I know, I know, but it's pretty much my go-to look when I am in a hurry and need something fun.  It does the job!  And I promise it's the last one for a while!  I will be more inventive with the rest of the Equestria collection!

The Element of Magic, inspired by Twilight Sparkle herself, is a gorgeous glitter polish.  The shimmer is utterly fantastic this time.  That's my favorite thing about this collection, how the bases have such a beautiful shimmer in them.  This polish is just like the others, dense and easy to apply.  No fishing for glitter, no special placement, just swipe, swipe, aaaand you have knockout pony nails.  Seriously, I love ponies.  Especially like this!

And now I've gotta go to bed!  Too tired to chat more.  I've got time in the morning to do some nail art, so I'm going to put together a special post before I disappear for the rest of the weekend!

Thanks for reading!
