Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape collection, swatches, review

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


Rainbow Honey is releasing a new collection called Summer Mixtape. Twelve cremes, shimmers and glitters make up this collection. I have three of them to share with you today.

These gorgeous colors will kick your summer manicures into high gear with color, shimmer and sheer summerific glam.

This collection will be available July 18, 2014 at Rainbow Honey. And there's a 20 percent discount code that is valid until August 31, 2014. For the 20 percent discount use code MIXTAPE20 for your shopping fix.

Let's get to the amazing polishes. 

Best Friend is a glitter topcoat that is chocked full of multi-shaped neon glitter. Circle, star, and miscellaneous bright glitter pieces will adorn your nails with ease. There wasn't any fishing for glitter and the pieces applied evenly. I have it on here over Waves.

 Stolen Dance is a pale kiwi green that has a subtle shimmer of gold and violet. I tried to capture the shimmer, but it is definitely camera shy. This pale shade will look amazing next to your summer, sun-kissed skin. This is three coats with a top coat.

Waves is an amazing, sparkling, bright turquoise polish that's infused with glass flecks. This is my favorite. It is almost indescribable. It definitely is reminiscent of sparkling tropical waters. The illusion is perfect. It some of these photos it looks textured, but it isn't - it is completely smooth. It is the glass flecks that create the watery look. This is two coats with a top coat.

Of the three that I swatched, Waves is a definite "must-have." They are all nice, but Waves is astounding. Remember, the collection is available July 18, 2014 at RainbowHoney.com. And don't forget the 20 percent off code "MIXTAPE20."

Rainbow Honey Final Battle Collection swatches and review

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Rainbow Honey has released their Final Battle Collection.



The Final Battle brings 15 new shades inspired by Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII. Often touted as “the game that sold the PlayStation,” FFVII was a long and grueling gaming experience full of heavy thematic elements and strife. The game touches on eco-terrorism, over-industrialization, and the expectations and challenges we battle over the course of life. With a cast as varied as the enemies they encounter, there was no shortage of inspiration here! - Rainbow Honey website



I received three of the polishes in the collection to share with you. Let's go straight to the swatches!


Diamond Weapon

Is a gorgeous arsenal of shimmery metallic wonder. The bronzed gray shade applied wonderfully and dried quickly. Two coats supplied the coverage I like in a polish.

Phoenix Down

Is a glitter top coat and is full of orange, red, white, and iridescent glitters. I show it here over Diamond Weapon. It applied evenly and there was no fishing for glitter.

Tera Flare

Is a glitter-infused blackened base that is beaming with holographic teal, blue, and silver glitters. The varied glitter in this polish is truly mesmerizing. This is two coats. It was a little on the thick side but that just meant it was easier to get it to an opaque state. If you like your polish a little thinner then you can add a drop or two of thinner. I didn't use thinner and love the results.

Rainbow Honey - The Summer of 199X

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Somewhere over the rainbow... Just kidding. But I did receive some wonderful Rainbow Honey polishes to review and share with you- these are from The Summer of 199X collection. This collection features 10 new colors inspired by the 1995 SNES hit, Earthbound.

I have tried Rainbow Honey before and I adore their colors and combination of colors.
 
"Rainbow Honey was born out of a love for color and a penchant for creativity. To create Rainbow Honey, Dee, its founder and Chief Designer, brought together her background in the sciences and her experience in the fashion industry, resulting in unique, colorful and well-formulated custom blended nail lacquers.

Our products are designed and made in the United States of America, always free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (the “big 3”), and with ingredients that have never been tested on animals.

Our love for color drives our passion for great and beautiful products, outstanding design, extreme attention to detail, and superb customer service. These values are at the core of everything we do." - Rainbow Honey website.

I received Fire Spring, Pink Cloud and Tiny Ruby. The formulas were great. Maybe a slight bit on the thick side, but not much. The glitter in these polishes applied evenly and laid flat against the nail.

Let's move on to the swatches. 

Fire Spring - is described as a coppery orange shimmer, is bursting with holographic glitters and the glowing embers of the last sanctuary! This is two coats.


Rainbow Honey - Fire Spring
Pink Cloud - is described as a hot pink jelly with holographic glitters and iridescent shimmer - perfect to meditate on and Carrot Key not needed! This is two coats. I think this is my favorite and normally I am not a light pink kind of person.

Tiny Ruby - is described as a shimmering ruby jelly, is filled with holographic glitters, glistening flecks, and the rarest jewels of Dalaam. This is two coats.

Rainbow Honey - The Robot Collection swatches and review

Sunday, April 7, 2013

I received some lovely polishes from Rainbow Honey to review - the Robot Collection. A collection of metallic polishes with a black and white glitter polish to accent any look.
 
This is a cute and futuristic collaboration between Rainbow Honey and illustrator Mary Winkler.
 
To create the collection, Rainbow Honey's Chief Designer, Dee Maldonado, took inspiration from anime, video games, super cheesy B films and the work of Mary Winkler, illustrator, jewelry and textile designer.
 
I have reviewed Rainbow Honey polishes before and I must say they listened to their customers. The formula is wonderful - it's easy to apply goes on the nail smooth and silky.
 
Most of these polishes could be one coat polishes if you are careful. I love the simple, classy look to them. Normally I am not a metallic person as they come off looking more frosty than anything. These truly do come off as metallic.
 
The Robot Collection features six new lacquers:
 
Bitty Love Bot - is a sparkling metallic aqua. It can also flash as a silver, dusty blue.

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk Collection

Monday, January 14, 2013

Rainbow Honey is releasing a new collection just in time for Valentine's Day - the Sweet Talk Collection.

The Sweet Talk Collection will be available on Fab.com on January 16th at 11 a.m. EST. The private sale  will run through 11 a.m. January 19th. Not a member of Fab? Join before the sale - it's free to sign up!

Following the Fab.com sale Sweet Talk Collection will be available again on 
http://rainbowhoney.com.

For this trio, Dee - Rainbow Honey's Chief Designer - chose to create two colors that were wearable on their own - Be Mine and Sweet Talk - yet still fun and shimmery. In addition to these two, XOXO adds that extra dimension and spark when you want it - perfect for an accent nail or as a full manicure for extra sparkle!   

I received two of the collection to share with you. XOXO and Sweet Talk. They are quite nice. I think Rainbow Honey has improved its formula. It is not as thick as previous polishes I have tried from the brand. The formula is nice. It has a smooth application and a good dry time. 

Let's move on to the swatches. 

Sweet Talk - is a decadently sweet collection of pastel glitters in a white jelly with hidden shimmer. I really like the multi-color glitter. It reminds me of the candy hearts we traded as children. It can be worn on its own. This is two coats.

XOXO- is a wonderful blend of glitters and flakes in a clear base for easy use over any manicure. I applied it over Barielle Queen for the Day which is the palest of pastel pinks. Look at that shimmer and shine from the flakes.

Rainbow Honey - The Yokai collection

Friday, October 5, 2012

Rainbow Honey has released a limited edition fall collection - The Yokai. I was sworn to secrecy on this release and was about to burst!

Three glitter-infused polishes are being introduced. They will be available for purchase October 13 while supplies last at www.rainbowhoney.com.

The formula on these polishes is great. Two coats provided wonderful coverage. They are thirsty polishes and need a good top coat. But I always use a top coat to protect my manicure.

Let's have a look at these lovely polishes.

The packaging is quite classy and chic.

Feeling girlie with glitter and Rainbow Honey

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I am usually not a glitter kind of girl. Don't get me wrong. I love micro-glitter, but the larger glitters have never been my thing. Rainbow Honey's Hanami isn't a large glitter but consists of varying sizes of glitter goodness. But even this would have been too much for me... before now. I am becoming converted by all the wonderful indie glitters out there. Maybe it's just the warming weather - or maybe I am just starting to like them more and more. 

Rainbow Honey's Hanami over an unknown brand of pink.
Hanami is a perfect mix of shapes and sizes. As I am writing this post and checking links I see a new polish by her called "Pinkie Promise." It is now a lemming! Anyway, back to my post about Hanami. It dries quickly and doesn't have a gritty finish. Granted, it's glitter so it is going to be somewhat gritty -- but it was easily smoothed by a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry topcoat.

Wyoming's dry weather and of course the acetone are doing a number on a cuticles so I am off to moisturize and condition them.

What's your preference on glitter?

Happy Polishing,

Kelly
