Finally, RH decided to move on from the pinks and develop some darker colors for the changing season!
Rainbow Honey is an indie nail brand that produces a lot of glitter toppers, but also full coverage colors, scented top coats, cuticle balms, and other beauty products. They have a mystery bag with three polish items and a few other goodies each month. The smaller size bag (enough for two or three manicures with each bottle of polish) is $10 USD and the larger size (15mL) is $25. Orders from Rainbow Honey tend to take a little while to process, but shipping itself has been relatively quick. If you spend $50 in their store you get the monthly limited edition polish free, and if you spend $65 you get that and a small mystery bag free.
The non-nail polish items in this month’s bag include a body balm, lotion, and soap in the fragrance Pomme Rouge. It smells like a combination of apples and berries, like powder and fruit. I like it, and it lingers nicely on my skin. The formula of the lotion is non-greasy, and the balm applies thicker and more like a treatment.
Sugarberries is a red shimmer base with dark red, silver, and gold glitters. I really like this color! I showed it here as three thin coats and got opaque coverage, but I think I’ll try one coat over a dark red or plum polish for a more layered effect.
Salacia is a bright green jelly with green flecks and silver triangles. I’m not a huge fan of this polish, simply because I’m not a big fan of bright green. I wore it here as three layers and it’s very see-through, so this one requires undies. I’m actually giving this polish away, because I just don’t seem myself ever wearing it.
Asteroid B is a navy blue shimmer with silver and gold stars and little holo squares. Again, on it’s own it’s very sheer, but I layered it today over Zoya Natty and it’s really lovely, like a night sky. The purplish-red iridescence really shows up over undies and in the sunlight.
RH offered two Limited Edition polishes this month: the yellow-squash colored Calabaza (which means melon), and the red-brown Apple Peel, which is what I chose. It’s a darker red with a strong brown-gold shimmer, just like fall apples with cinnamon. I love this color, and while it’s not as rich as, say, Zoya India, I think I’ll wear it often. I can never have too many reds.
The September mystery bag is still available on Rainbow Honey, so if you’re interested, pick it up!
