INDIE WEEK! 365 Days of Color End of the Rainbow Collection (PIC HEAVY)

Hello again ladies! If you missed my post earlier featuring three gorgeous Nails Inc. looks be sure to scroll down and check it out! There are some gorgeous colors you guys don't wanna miss. And SPEAKING of gorgeous colors, boy oh boy do I have some beauties to show you!!

Introducing the 365 Days of Color -- End of the Rainbow Collection! Rainbow lovers, this one's for you. I'm sure you've noticed by now that 365 is easily my favorite Indie maker and not just because she's a good friend. Sunny has a knack for taking gorgeous colors and putting her own special twist on them for a breathtaking finish. These five gorgeous shades each packed with a ton of rainbow colored glitters for the perfect transition from summer to fall.

(L-R: Glittercide, Too Pink To Function, Soak Up the Sun, My Little Cuppycake and Head Peach in Charge)


Let's jump right in! But first, let me mention now before this gets too wordy: for all photos, I used two coats without undies for each of these polishes for complete opacity. There was no lack of glitter here either! They all applied like a dream and the glitters went on perfectly flat. I finished off each look with two coats of Seche Vite to give it a glossy look.

First up, we've got Too Pink To Function. Can I just say how much I LOVE the name?! Mean Girls was and still is one of my favorite movies and I'm a firm believer in participating in Pink Wednesdays (hmm new them for Weds? Possibly?)

Too Pink to Function is a creamy hot pink, packed with a ton of rainbow colored matte glitters in all different shapes. From squares, to hexes to micro fine glitters, this is one gorgeous pink! There's even a slight teal shimmer if you look closely at the bottle and close up shot.

See the shimmer? Stunning! It looks even more gorgeous in person and in sunlight too.

Next up, we've got Soak Up the Sun, a gorgeous dusty, yellow polish brimming with glitter. We're talking MAJOR glitterbomb here girls!

"Soak Up the Sun is a distant relative of my original favorites, Funfetti and Summer Dream. It has the same basic glitters in it (with no bars) but also has extra micro fine, dusty multi glitter in it to give it a shiny sparkle."
I'm pretty obsessed with all things hexagon glitter and this polish stole my heart. Just look at the gorgeous teal and royal blue hexes! How can you not love this polish?!!?

Gorgeous micro shimmer that I managed to capture... I can't get enough of this polish!

Next is Head Peach in Charge, a dusty peach that reminds me of the sand during a gorgeous Florida sunset.  I love the color peach but I think this would look better if I was a little less tan. Damn Florida sun!!! Maybe a little pick me up in the winter when I'm lighter? I'll be sure to revisit it! Either way, it's a gorgeous color unlike anything I own!

"This one is filled with multi-colored small glitter and extra, extra fine dusty glitter, which gives the peach a dusty look but when you look closely you see it's actually glitter!!!"

Love, love love the shimmer! Head Peach in Charge is like a glitter sammich without all the hassle!

Ladies, it's official -- I have a new favorite glitter! Glittercide is the same exact glitter as in Head Peach in Charge except in a clear base.  Man, does this baby shine! I've had this on my nails for the past three days and I don't wanna take it off. Super gorgeous, truly a rainbow for your nails.

"I wanted to make another glitter polish where you didn't need to layer it over anything, that was so packed with glitter it would be practically opaque in two coats. That is why it's called glittercide, it kills ya with glitter!!" (source) 

Practically opaque indeed! This application of this polish was like heaven -- there was no glitter clumping, it applied evenly and smoothed out nicely. There is a slight VNL, I don't mind but you could easily add a third coat to get rid of it!

And last, but CERTAINLY not least, my absolute favorite of the bunch -- My Little Cuppycake. I am a huge sucker for any glitter polish in a creamy, white base. I see it and I'm pretty much salivating at the mouth going gimmegimmegimme (embarrassing, I know.) Sunny really knocked it out of the park with My Little Cuppycake. Even the formula is thinner, so the glitters shine right through. Another perfect jelly sammich without the effort! Without further adieu...

"The white polish is more of a white jelly rather than a cream so that you can see more glitter in it. MLC then has a bunch of matte glitter in it. From rainbow hexes to coral fine glitter and the best part??? RAINBOW MATTE SHARDS!!!!! EEEEEEEEPPPP (you all know how addicted to shards I am too!!)

Have you picked up your jaw from the floor yet? Me either.  I could literally eat my nails! They look like perfect little cupcakes with delicious sprinkles on top. Add this, plus Sunny's Miracle Cuticle Balm in the cupcake scent and I'm sure you'll be close too!

Please excuse my cuticles, I've been flying through polishes and now they need a little R&R!

Mark your calendars now, the End of the Rainbow collection will be available for purchase THIS Friday, August 17th. Stayed tuned to the 365 Days of Color facebook page for a time.

Availability: 365 Days of Polish $8.00 for a full size or $4.50 for a mini

    I'm not sure which one I like more! I love the creamy look of some of the polishes. I don't actually own any Indie polishes, but definitely looking into getting some! xx
