ManGlaze Lesbihonest Swatches and Review (Or How I Named ManGlaze's Lesbihonest!)

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  This afternoon I have an awesome treat for you (and for me!)  First, a little back story to explain the title of this post.  A few months ago, ManGlaze posted a sneak peek of a new color that they were developing.  The name they came up with had something to do with girls kissing each other, but I felt like it wasn't quite right and suggested the name Lesbihonest to them (half jokingly.)  Lo and Behold, 3 months later, Lesbihonest is here!

Now, you might wonder why my bottle looks different from the ones on their website.  That's because mine, and a few other peoples, are the non-color version that got sent out as a 'sorry' for Santorum being late and was sent before the actual color label was finished!  And, the most exciting part of this all for me is that under the description of Lesbihonest on ManGlaze's Facebook Store, they give me a shout out!  Read it HERE  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Yes we have another one coater!  Lesbihonest is a gorgeous fuschia matte polish that's packed full of shimmer!  Look at the macro shot and how shimmery it is!  I love it!  This is an awesome color for spring and summer.  Let's see it now with top coat!

I'm honestly not sure if I like it better matted or with a top coat!  It's gorgeous both way!  I love how pigmented it is and how vibrant!

So there you have it, the first polish I've ever named and it's named Lesbihonest.  My parents must be so proud.  :)  I actually adore this polish and think the label is hilarious and am really looking forward to wearing it this Spring and Summer!

What do you think of Lesbihonest?  Do you prefer it matte or glossy?

  6. I am mad for this shade - but then I adore fuchsia/magenta polishes - this one I much prefer with a clear topper so i can see all the goodies in the formula.

    1. The glossy really does bring out all the shimmery goodness! I think it would look great (if you have long enough nails which I don't)to have it matte with glossy tips!

  7. That is so awesome! I like the uncolored bottle - it's a little more hush. The color is gorgeous and while I don't care much for mattes, I like this one.

    1. That's the great thing about mattes, you can wear it matte for a day, then add a top coat and it's like a whole new manicure!
