Have A Killer Day

This was one of the polishes I was most excited about when Rainbow Connection launched. Unfortunately I wasn’t quick enough the first time round before it sold out, but I managed to get my hands on it when it was restocked.

Have A Killer Day is from Cadillacquer’s Dexter collection, and I LOVE it. It has a light greyish blue base, with blue microflakes giving it a gorgeous blue shimmer, neon pink squares, small matte purple hex glitter and matt pink hex glitter. I love the contrast between the light base and the neon pink. I used three coats, with two coats of HK Girl.

Cap ‘n Cook

Another from Cadillacquer’s Breaking Bad collection, Cap ‘n Cook is a lovely deep purple with a red/pink shimmer and scattered holo effect. Apart from Better Call Saul, I think this might be my favourite from the collection, although I do also love Pinkman.

The formula was great, and I used three coats for the photos below, with no top coat.

Better Call Saul!

I’m a big fan of Breaking Bad, and I was so sad when the series came to an end a few weeks ago, it’s definitely up there with some of my all time favourite tv shows, so when I saw that Cadillacquer were launching a Breaking Bad collection, I couldn’t wait for Rainbow Connection to get them! I picked three from the collection (for now!) If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I love blue polish, so I was torn between Better Call Saul!, and Car Wash, I decided on Better Call Saul purely for the name!

Better Call Saul is a gorgeous bright blue, with a turquoise shimmer and scattered holo. I used three coats with no top coat.

Masterpiece

Masterpiece was one of the Cadillacquer polishes I ordered from Rainbow Connection last week, from the Dexter collection. I’m not usually mad about green polish but I couldn’t resist this one!

Masterpiece is a bright jade green jelly base, filled with red glitter, that looks just like blood splatters! It was a little sheer, but the formula was good otherwise, and it dried quickly. My pictures show 3 coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat. This would be a perfect Christmas polish too!

The Dark Defender

For weeks, I have been excited about the opening of Rainbow Connection, UK’s premier stockist of top international independent nail lacquer brands, including Dollish Polish, Lush Lacquer, Polished by KPT, Lacquer Lust, Cadillacquer and Pahlish. I’ve been selling a lot of stuff on eBay recently, so every time I’d save a little to put towards some indie polish! Annette opened the store last weekend, and the first brands to go live were CadillacquerCrowsToesLiquid Sky Lacquer, and a pre-order for Polished by KPT. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve been lusting after some Polished by KPT thermals, so I ordered a couple of those, as well as a couple of Cadillacquer polishes, and one Liquid Sky Lacquer. I’ve also ordered the Glisten and Go HK Girl Top Coat, because I’ve heard rave reviews about it!

My first order arrived three days after I placed it, and even came with a sweet! I love people who send sweets when I order things! (truffleshuffle do it too)

Liquid Sky Lacquer even came in a cute organza bag!

The two Cadillacquer polishes I chose were from the Dexter collection (I missed out on Have A Killer Day.) I love Dexter, and I’m gutted it’s finished, but pretty polish makes it a little better! The Dark Defender is my favourite of the two. It’s amazing, I’m in love with it! (I also had a fan girl moment when Cadillacquer liked my photo on instagram and followed me!

The Dark Defender is a flakie teal jelly polish, with hints of purple and green. Did I mention that I love it? The formula was great, I used three thin coats, but you could get away with two thick coats. My pictures show 3 coats with no top coat.

Cadillacquer also have a Breaking Bad collection, so I’m hoping Rainbow Connection have that soon!
