Nail Mail: Rainbow Honey 2013 Glitters & New Sweet Talk Collection

29 Jan

Last week I received a press sample from Rainbow Honey, and I’ve been dying to show you all. It took me a couple of days to swatch everything (mostly because I wanted to wear each polish for at least a day haha), but it’s finally ready for you!

Included in my sample were 5 glitter polishes: 3 from their 2013 collect and 2 from the brand new Sweet Talk Collection

Note: I used a base coat of Fingerpaints Easel Come Easel Go for every swatch for consistency (even though you can’t see the base coat in all of the pictures)

2013 Glitters

papillonPapillon– I think this one is pretty appropriately named, haha (papillon is French for butterfly fyi). It’s a clear base with small silver and pink hexagon glitters and larger pink butterfly-shaped glitters. It was very easy to apply and, although not my style, looks very cute on my nails. I’m normally not a fan of funky-shaped glitters because I think they look like modern art adaptations of the objects they are trying to represent, but these glitters are actually perfect. It’s very obvious that they are butterflies, right? Great polish for kids, I think.

magic cakeMagic Cake – Okay, I can see why this was one of Rainbow Honey’s top glitters in 2013 because it’s fabulous. It’s like a rave on the nails! I love this polish, love the bright colors, the multi-shaped glitters, perfection. Magic Cake has a clear base, so you can put it over any color polish, but I’m glad I picked Fingerpaints Easel Come, Easel Go because I think this looks great over silver. Best of all, it was easy to distribute the glitters because there’s a ton of them.

the krakenThe Kraken – Okay, I wish this picture had turned out nicer because this is my favorite polish out of the 5 I received. I used Fingerpaints Easel Come, Easel Go for a base coat, but it was basically unnecessary because the base of this polish is the bright blue you see above, and it does a pretty good job of coverage. There are tons of gold hexagon glitters floating around, and they look green in the blue base. Actually, it reminds me a lot mermaids haha.

The Sweet Talk Collection

XOXO – This is the only polish I wish I had tried over a different base coat because it has some silvery-bronze glitters in it that you can’t really see on the silver base. That being said, I still really love the way this polish looks. It’s made up of tons of little glitters, nothing really chunky like the other polishes I received in this sample. And it is absolutely, 100% the perfect polish for Valentine’s day. I mean, I’m not doing anything for Valentine’s (no boyfriend = I can stay home and catch up on Almost Human), but I will be wearing this polish. Probably over a super cute pink like OPI Senorita Rosalita 😉

sweet talk

Sweet Talk – Well look at this, the very polish the collection was named for! This polish has a pale-grey base with small pink, red, purple and (occaisional) blue hexagon glitters. I love the color of the base for this polish, though it makes the glitters look a little muted. I like the spread of the glitters, too, there’s quite a variety. It’s definitely a cute, subtle polish.

So what do you guys think? Do you have a favorite polish from Rainbow Honey?
