Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape Collection Swatches + Review

Happy Friday-eve everyone! Today, I have some swatches from Rainbow Honey's Summer Mixtape collection. They graciously sent me three full-size polishes from this collection to review, and I am so excited for the colors they sent! The collection has 12 polishes in all. To see more, head over to their website. The collection will be available to purchase tomorrow, on 7/18.


The first polish I have to show you is called Stolen Dance. Quick side note, here: I actually know all of the songs that these polishes reference. They all play regularly on my favorite satellite radio station, Alt Nation, so yay! I can appreciate these so much more because they are named after songs that I really love! This one is by a group called Milky Chance. Good song, and an even better polish! It is a lovely pale kiwi green with gold and purple shimmer. It went on very nicely, too. This is two coats.


Next up is Best Friend. I love this polish so much! It is one of the most awesome polishes that I own, hands down. And, it's named after a super-catchy song by Foster the People that I had in my head the entire time I wore this, and I didn't mind at all! It is full of multi-colored neon glitter in small hexes, large hexes, tiny squares and stars, black and white triangles, and purple iridescent shimmer! Eeeeeee!!! It went on well, this was about two coats. I didn't have to do any fishing, which made me really happy, and I didn't need to add topcoat; it was surprisingly smooth. I didn't want to take this one off, but after a few days, and some serious housework, I had some chips, so it was time to say goodbye...at least for now.


 Last, we have Fall in Love. Oh my - this one is named after one of my favorite songs! If you haven't heard of Phantogram, you need to get some in your life. Their music is awesome just like this polish. :) This one looked so pretty in the bottle...and then I realized it was a jelly, too. Bonus! It is a bright crimson jelly with blue iridescent glitter that makes in look more magenta. I went ahead and did a jelly stampwich with it so you can see it's potential!


Here is a good picture of the shimmer - it makes the bright crimson look more pink/fuschia. I like the sparkle.


Here is what it looked like pre-sandwich. :) I used Konad m63 and Mash-35 for these images.


Here it is sandwiched with another thin coat of Fall in Love on top of the stamping.


Thank you so much to Rainbow Honey for sending these beautiful polishes to me! I am so happy to be able to add them to my collection and share their loveliness with all of you.
