Swatch & Review: Rain City Lacquer Seattle Sunrise


Seattle Sunrise is a gorgeous polish with a pinky, peachy base packed with the perfect amount of glitter. The only glitter not shown in my swatch is white star glitter, I didn't manage to get any out of the bottle :(

Shown is probably 2 coats (can't remember, sorry!) and no formula complaints to speak of, other than my inability to get the star glitters on my nails. I loved this so much, and then I realized it might look even more amazing matte... So I mattified it!

I love how it looks either way. Which you do you prefer? Sadly I think Seattle Sunrise has been discontinued, but there are many more gorgeous polishes available from Rain City Lacquer.

Rain City Lacquer is available from Rica's BigCartel store, and be sure to check the Facebook page and Instagram for news about restocks and collections!

Bestie Twin Nails with Rei!


Those of you who follow me on Instagram might know that I recently did Bestie Twin Nails with my friend Rei from Reinovate (she is super awesome go follow her blog)! We agreed on doing Togepi patterned nails with a Poké Ball accent nail. The Togepi evolution line is actually one of my favorites in the Pokémon game titles, and I think you'll soon see why :) For my nails, I freehanded blue and red triangles on white polish. The colors I used were Zoya Sooki, Essence Let's Get Lost!, and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

I freehanded the triangles using nail art brushes (techncially liquid eyeliner brushes!) and did a Poké Ball accent nail on my thumb.

A solo shot of Rei's mani, from her Instagram! Doing Bestie Twin Nails was so much fun and I highly recommend doing it with someone who you know, or otherwise feel comfortable doing it with! I'm so happy Rei asked me to do BTN with her, I thought it was such a fun experience and would love to do it again :)

Have you ever done Bestie Twin Nails? Lemme know in the comments!
