Rainbow Honey: The Summer of 199X

So back in those days when WoW was just introduced to the world, gamers were apparently getting their kick from SNES Earthbound. I had never tried it myself because I was still too young and probably rolling stupidly in the sand at a playground near my house.

Nonetheless, I was totally psyched up when Rainbow Honey announced its newest collection, Summer of 199X featuring 10 new colors inspired by Earthbound. Even though I could not identify the references to the game, there is no denying the beauty of these polishes. Rainbow Honey generously sent three polishes for me to share - just take a look:


Mint Flavor. 3 thin coats.
Part aqua, part baby blue, part shimmer, this was hands down the best window flavor. Because...you taste windows, right?
A soft aqua blue with subtle green shimmer. I especially love that flash of shimmer. Formula was a bit tricky (as with most pastels) but totally worth it. So delicate and pretty. Easily my favourite of the trio. ♥

Apple Kid. 2 coats.
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.
A brilliant hot pink with tiny pink flecks that shimmer and shine when they catch the light. Very flattering on the nails - definitely a head-turner.


I Miss You. 1 coat dabbed over Essence Hello Marshmallow.
I Miss You is a pastel rainbow of glitters and shimmer, these butterflies are sure to cure the homesick traveler.
A delicate pastel glitter mix filled with primarily baby blue and pink glitters and a generous sprinkle of tiny iridescent glitters and blue shimmer. The formula is a tad thicker than the other two colours but the glitters apply easily over the nail. I did have to prod at the larger glitters a little to place them where I want them to be.

And just because I can, I added a matte top coat over them for a daintier effect ♥


Yup, Rainbow Honey most definitely hit the ball out of the park with this collection! Apart from these trio, they also have other mind-blowing glitters and pretty shimmers - something for everyone!

So what do you think of these colours?

    I think "I miss you" is my favourite! I'm not used to see combinations of litter like that! :)

  2. They're so pretty! My favourite from that collection is Magic Cake, but they don't ship internationally and the distributors have outrageous shipping prices :(

  3. Wow, those flecks in Apple Kid are stunning!

  4. Ah, these are gorgeous! I think you already know my favorite ;) I'm eying that neon glitter topper from the same collex, I think it looks cute :)

  5. It is definitely a pretty unique mix! :D

  6. Oh yes! That is a really fun glitter topper! I have to agree it is really unfortunate that they don't offer international shipping :(

  7. Would I be surprised if it is the same as mine? ;p And yes the neon glitter topper looks really fun indeed!
