Rainbow Honey: Swatches of Indie Polish

Rainbow Honey Polish

Wheeee! My first indie nail polish and it’s from Rainbow Honey. Creating and blending out of New Jersey, this brand is now available in Canada. Nail artists and glitter-fiends rejoice!

what's at the end of a rainbow honey?

On April 1st 2014, Rainbow Honey celebrated their 2nd birthday. During those two years of being, they’ve been cranking out some really fantastic shades of sparkling polish that you really don’t see anywhere else.

Rainbow Honey Be Mine

Rainbow Honey Be Mine It’s almost a jelly but it’s also almost a crème. Loaded with micro-shimmer and little gold flecks, it’s a delicate peachy-pinky-shimmery shade of neutral.

Rainbow Honey Persephone

Rainbow Honey Persephone Ruby Red stuffed full of copper and gold shimmer that makes it look hugely multidimensional in just one coat.

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk over Butter London Marshmallow I chose to use Sweet Talk over white to cut down on coats and pop the cupcake icing effect. Layered alone or over a simple white, Sweet Talk turns into a sweet jelly-crème sandwich with shimmery suspended sprinkles.

Rainbow Honey Papillon

Rainbow Honey Papillon over Dior Pandore 754 Butterflies A clear coat with hex glitter and butterflies. Yes! Spring in a bottle. Summer in a bottle.

Rainbow Honey Changeling Queen

Rainbow Honey Changeling Queen over Yves Rocher Jaune Citron Perhaps my favourite of all the shades. I thought about showing it to you over solid white but then I thought… hmm.. yellow? It’s sort of magnificent isn’t it? And when I say magnificent, I really mean that I love it a lot.

Rainbow Honey Cosmetics polish formulas for my sample sizes were all pretty great. Apart from the butterflies that I had to fish for, I didn’t have any other trouble getting anything out of the bottle and onto my nails. The consistency is good, the brushes are good, and the shades were stellar in their uniqueness. If you’re a fan of glitter and nail art right out of the bottle, then you might want to think about having a look at to see all their lovely creations.

My review shades are testers (5mL). The full-sized bottles for retail are $11.50/15mL at$10USD direct from
