This week I want to tell you about a company called Honeybee Gardens. They are a local company to me, based in West Reading, Pennsylvania. Honeybee Gardens makes a line of cosmetics, including nail polishes, that are made from all natural ingredients. I was really curious about their nail polish because it is water-based and free from any chemical odors. It also does NOT require nail polish remover! Honeybee Gardens does have a special acetone free nail polish remover that you can use, but rubbing alcohol or vodka/grain alcohol also does the trick! They were nice enough to send me Goddess to review as well as a bottle of their polish remover. I am intrigued by this company and I really hope you will check them out!

Honeybee Gardens nail polishes contain no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalates or FD&C colors. They retail for $9.99 and you can buy their 4oz nail polish remover for $8.99. They reuse and recycle as much as possible and never test their products on animals. You can find their products in health food stores, pharmacies, etailers, herbal shops, specialty and gift stores.
Honeybee Gardens also has a whole line of other types of cosmetics such as lipstick, mascara, eye liner, lip gloss, bronzer, foundation, etc. They also sell cosmetic tools, body care items, hair care items and even products for men!

Today I want to show you one of the latest Serena Williams Glam Slam sets, Your Royal Shine-ness and Servin Up Sparkle. I really like this set. Your Royal Shine-ness is a silver foil that was very easy to apply. It went on so smooth and dried fast. I applied 2 coats of Your Royal Shine-ness and topped it off with CND Air Dry.
Artificial light, no flash.
And then I added one coat of Servin Up Sparkle. Servin Up Sparkle is a holographic glitter. It has 2 different size glitter pieces in a clear base. I applied one coat of Gelous over top of the glitter before adding top coat. I am getting in the habit of always doing that with glitter polish. It helps prevent "hungry glitter" and gives it a smoother look and feel. I then topped it off with CND Air Dry.
What do you think? Will you be picking up this set?

I wanted to post some photos of the Savina polishes that I own. It seems as though my blog post about Savina Purple Hologram has sparked some interest in my Facebook group. I will try to swatch these all for you soon, but in the meantime, here are some bottle pics!
