Today I am bringing you my swatch-activty of the Rainbow Honey: The Summer of 199X Part II collection. I have also added in Summer Blossom & Special World for good measure!!
I am just going to get started.. There are quite a few photos to share. I am also going to be using the descriptions from the site.. because.. we all know I'm not too good with that.
I knew I wanted to swatch Mint Flavor immediately, as I figured that would be my favourite out of the set.. And it was.. and then Tessie almost tied it.. Then Apple Kid happened.. You'll see!
First up is Mint Flavor. "Part aqua, part baby blue, part shimmer, this was hands down the best window flavor. Because...you taste windows, right?" The swatch shows 2 coats of Mint Flavor with SVTC. Then, I applied a coat of all the glittery polish that I received. Index is Special World, middle is Summer Blossom, ring is I Miss You, and pinky is Magic Cake.
Special World: "For Dee's birthday this year, she's decided to make a very special glitter topper nail lacquer and is sharing it with all of you!" Of course I needed to have it. Plus, she goes by 'Dee' as well. AND! I swear we write our D's the same and make the same type of hearts. Weird? I don't think so! Also.. I didn't notice this until I was swatching things, but the top of the bottle is numbered! That is really awesome to me.
Summer Blossom: "summer blossom - a festival of orange, yellow, and white blossoms in a sea of iridescent and holographic glitters."
I Miss You: "I Miss You is a pastel rainbow of glitters and shimmer, these butterflies are sure to cure the homesick traveler."
Magic Cake: "Magic Cake - Turn any manicure into a neon blast with these bright glitters; word on the street is this cake will make you trip!"
I had no real problems with the application of Mint Flavor.. It leveled out nicely with a second coat.. and it is a gorgeous colour!
I had an issue with two of the glittery gems. Both 'I Miss You' and 'Magic Cake' have wonky brushes. They are very weirdly bent.. It doesn't ruin applying the polish, but you have to use a little finesse when applying them.. A touch disappointing - but they are still lovely!
Next, I went with Tessie.. This polish is sososo pretty - I really liked it with my skin tone. "No need to join the Tessie-Watching Club when you can have this dusty and shimmery periwinkle creme at your fingertips."
This polish also had a wonky brush.. It was probably the most bent of the brushes. It made application quite tricky.. BUT! This polish is worth the work in my opinion. It is just lovely. It has this gorgeous subtle shimmer going on. Had I have swatched during the day and not the middle of the night, I would have liked to see it in all of its glory in the sunshine.
Lastly, here is Apple Kid. Just.. wow. I absolutely love this polish. "This bright and rosy fuchsia creme won't build you any useful contraptions but it is filled with more shimmer than you can shake a Pencil Eraser at."
Zero problems with this gem of a polish. Oh, and I might add: it is one coat of polish. One! Now, I know my own rules, as I am sure some of you do as well: I never never never just do one coat of polish.. I always go with at least two.. I legitimately left this with one coat. It is perfection! It is like the pink (ok, fuchsia) version of piCture pOlish O'Hara - which is a one coat beautiful red. Seriously. Amazing!
Overall, I'd say I'm a HUGE fan of my most recent Rainbow Honey polish. I have been a supporter of the brand for awhile now, and I have yet to be disappointed by one of their polish. I mostly own a wealth of glittery gems, but with these cremes.. My goodness. So great! Despite the wonky brushes on a couple of the polish, I'm still smitten.
Have a lovely day everyone - see you again soon!!
