Rainbow Honey's got a new collection coming out!
The Summer of 199X collection from Rainbow Honey is inspired by the 1995 SNES video game, Earthbound.
Rainbow Honey's creator, Dee, has this to say about the new lacquers:
"Another video game that holds a special place in my heart! I wanted this collection to bring me back into the game, and I think each new lacquer takes me to a special moment or reminds me of a certain boss that resulted in one too many Game Overs...Part I is made up of 5 new glitterbombs bursting with shimmer and color - they all layer to opacity but can be used over other colors as well. Part II is 3 new shimmer-dusted cremes and 2 new glitter toppers that give each creme a bold or sweet look. I am so excited to add these to our lineup!" -Dee
I am so very excited about this collection, too. Rainbow Honey has been previewing it on their Facebook page for the last few weeks, and it's been driving me mad with want - I have to have every single one of these! I was lucky enough to have three of the lacquers provided to me by Rainbow Honey in mini sizes for review.
I received I Miss You, Apple Kid, and Mint Flavor...
Rainbow Honey's Mint Flavor is described as "part aqua, part baby blue, part shimmer, this was hands down the best window flavor." This is a gorgeous baby blue creme with a spark of aqua shimmer that just makes it so unique. The formula on this was absolutely killer - two coats here, NO topcoat. Look at that shine! It flowed well over the nail and dried lightning-fast. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect for summer!
The glitter topper Rainbow Honey sent is I Miss You, a pastel rainbow of glitters and shimmers, hearts and butterflies. Gorgeous pink and blue satin glitters, iridescent glitters, really pretty over Mint Flavor, as you can see here! The formula on I Miss You was thick, but workable. It made it easy to dab the glitter and direct it where I wanted. I didn't have any trouble getting any hearts or butterflies out of the bottle!
I also received Apple Kid, and I'm glad I did because it freaking blew my mind. Apple Kid is a bright, rosy fuchsia creme absolutely packed with a spark of hot pink shimmer. The formula on this was one of the most amazing polish formulas I've ever used, and the polish was immediately entered into my top ten of 2013, if not all time. Look how smooth and perfect it is! The pink shimmer makes it really glow, more than any of my pictures could convey. It's lit from within, and absolutely gorgeous. This is two coats, no topcoat. It shines and glows all on its own!
Apple Kid topped with I Miss You is sweet, girly, and feminine. I think I prefer the glitter over Mint Flavor, but it is gorgeous nonetheless. And look at those butterflies coming out to play!
From what I was sent, it's clear I'm going to be very impressed with The Summer of 199X...from Rainbow Honey!
