Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape Partial Collection Swatch and Review

**The featured product was sent to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

To get you all through the Wednesday hump, I just had to show you all these new Rainbow Honey beauties I was sent. I had noticed they put out a new collection and fell in love with every last one of them. So when a package arrived at my door, I was beyond excited! The new collection is called Summer Mixtape and it is a set of 12 polishes that vary in finish. Cremes and jellies and glitters, and crellies. You want it? This collection has it! I may only have 3 to show you, but you'll be seeing these posts pop up left and right so you should be able to find swatches on all of the twelve soon. 

One Minute More is from the Side A set and it's described as "the sun will definitely shine on your nails with this sparkling lemon yellow". Shown is three coats, for full opacity, topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. There is no way you can be in a bad mood with this polish around. It's so vibrant and happy. A perfect sunshine-y yellow crelly filled with pink iridescent flakies. $10





Work It Out is also from the Side A set and it is described as "I know we debate it, but this coral is the perfect summer staple". Shown is three coats, for full opacity, topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. I couldn't get over how perfectly smooth Work It Out applied. The color is perfection as is the formula! I love a good coral and this just topped the charts! $10





Elevate is also from the Side A set and is described as "time to pick up this Ibiza-meets-New-Wave blend of glitters and celebrate!". Shown below is two coats of Elevate over both One Minute More and Work It Out topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. Not a ton of glitter came out unless you stir the brush around a bit. I didn't want it to be too thick so I did two thin coats instead of constantly dipping and dabbing. Either way, this combination of matte pastels and bright glitter with the hidden iridescent flake is amazing! If you're not a fan of all the neon toppers that have been coming out, Elevate is an answer to your prayers. $10









Well, Rainbow Honey did it again. Beautiful, vibrant and inspiring. All are sure to keep a smile on your face. The Summer Mixtape Collection is on sale now. Each bottle is available for $10, but if you decide you need the whole set, you can get it on sale HERE for $90 (instead of $120) for the full sized set or $45 for the mini set (minis are not available individually). 

If you want to take a peek at the others in the collection:

Side A
I Wanna Get Better - "I didn't know I was lonely 'til I saw this peachy crelly full of bright and neon glitters
Stolen Dance - "We shouldn't talk about it, but this pale kiwi green will entice you with it's gold and violet shimmer"
Best Friend - "Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white...and in neon glitter!"

Side B
Waves - "At least we made some waves with this sparkling, glass-flecked turquoise"
Shark Attack - "This glittery blue jelly is full of shark fins and that's just what I believe in!"
Night Sky - "Let this mix of stars, moons, and shimmery glitters be the fire in your eyes"
Lanterns - "Light your way with this luminescent blend of iridescent and translucent glitters"
Fall in Love - "Fall into this cool tones crimson red jelly with sparks of blue iridescence"

Marbles for Polish Kiki's Delivery Service Collection Swatch and Review

Happy Tuesday, everyone!! As you can see, I've got a beautiful collection inspired by the lovely movie Kiki's Delivery Service. (If you haven't seen it, it's worth tossing into your Netflix DVD queue!!) It's a wonderful flick, and really anything from Hayao Miyazaki is amazing and totally worth your time. 

I'm a new swatcher for Marbles for Polish and when I found out this was going to be the first collection I'd swatch and review for her, I had a mini freak out. Yes, I'm THAT big of a fan! #noshame

Yeah, that was me running for the mailbox everyday until it arrived. I couldn't wait to get them in my possession! Without further ado, I bring you the Kiki's Delivery Service Collection from Marbles for Polish.


Kiki is a dusty pink, white based, creme scattered with matte red and black glitter in several smaller sizes, and scattered with a hidden gold shimmer and purple to pink iridescent flakes that you can only see in the right light. Shown is three coats, for full opacity, topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. Kiki had a perfect application and needed no clean up. No issues searching for glitter or waiting for it to dry. It's soft and quiet, but leaves an impression. Just like Kiki. $9

Ursula is a cerulean blue jelly based polish filled with holographic glitters in red, dark blue, and light blue, and scattered with a golden shimmer. Shown is two coats topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. I was pretty shocked when I started with the first coat and saw how much glitter was actually on the brush. They were almost clinging for life as I was brushing them onto my nail. (Insert visual of the kids holding onto the broom in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.) There still may be a little VNL after two coats, but there was so much glitter I figured two was perfect. No need to over do it. It isn't Ursula's style. $9






Jiji is a beautiful black creme filled with a silver shimmer. Shown is two coats for full opacity topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. Perfectly smooth is the best way to describe Jiji's application. I fully expected it to be a jelly and for it to be as opaque as it was, was a welcome surprise. The perfect sidekick to Kiki! I'd definitely wear the two together. $9

Osono is a pale, yellow based, taupe, nude creme filled with metallic green glitters in multiple sizes, and a hidden gold shimmer. Shown is two coats, for full opacity, topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. Being a huge fan of nudes, I was so excited to see this representation of Osono. It's simple, and happy, just like her. A great application with no clean up needed. $9

Tombo is a clear based glitter topper filled with matte white, yellow, and orange glitter. Shown is one coat over two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue topped with Magpie Shine from A Girl Obsessed. Since her polish focused more on his shirt(s), I had to add the blue to tie in his jeans. It's only appropriate. Packed full of glitter, there were no issues with placement or application. Fishing for glitter wasn't even an option. (You could easily use this for a candy corn Halloween mani!!) $8.50

Each of these were flawless in bringing their inspiration to lacquer life. Perfect applications, and boy does this girl know how to pack in the glitter!! Yeah, she had no problems finding inspiration here. It was definitely easy in this case. 



Her shop is currently closed while she's waiting for labels, but this collection won't be available until August 1st. So get your wallets ready!! The full collection will be $40 for full size and $20 for a mini set. If only a couple caught your eye, they will all be $9, except for Tombo which will be $8.50. The mini bottles won't be available individually this time, so choose wisely! 



Now, I'm sad that this collection is over. :o/ Think she will do another Miyazaki inspired collection?! If she did, which movie would you want to see from her?
