OK I am going to try something a little different here. As you might have read, I broke not just one but two nails while moving around computers at my work, so I will be spreading out my backlog a little more. I'm buying an extra day of post! So typically I show off just nail art and nail photos but I personally get SUPER FREAKING excited when I get nail mail - and Rainbow Honey has introduced their "mystery bags" in Christmas. It was a HUGE hit that they introduced them again for February and I have a sneaky feeling that they're here to stay. Why?, you say? Because this one was explicitly labelled as "February's Mystery"... Oh God, more to come? IN EITHER CASE, LET'S GET TO THE UNBOXING!!! (And don't laugh at my broken thumbnail, siiiigh!)
So it came in a simple pack like this:
Upon opening, revealed a bubble wrapped pack:
ALL OF THE CONTENTS! OH MY GOD, ALL THE COLOUR!
Here's the "February's Mystery" card. Oh God, "February's Mystery"? Does that mean another one is coming?!
Here's what the card read:
Front: February's Mystery / Rainbow Honey
Inside: Greetings from the Rainbow Honey Lab! Thanks for picking up this month's Mystery Bag! This time around, our selection includes: Sparking Agave - from our upcoming Midnight Garden Collection, coming March 2014 / Poffin Party - this one's still a prototype so let us know what you think! / Sakura Matsuri Mini Rollerball - making a return later this spring! / Fast Dry Top Coat - goes perfect with our new... / Nail Art Glitters - a first look at some awesome blends of glitters ready for nail art, decorating, or wherever your creativity takes you!
Back: We hope you've enjoyed this month's look at some of our upcoming products!

Love, The Rainbow Honey Lab (see you in March!)
Wait wait wait - SEE YOU IN MARCH?!?! OH GOD ANOTHER ONE IS COMING!!!!
Anyway, here's the new nail art glitter. This is a brand new product, in my knowledge of Rainbow Honey, I don't think they've had a product quite like this. I got a nail art glitter called "Electric Love". It made a bit of a mess in my Mystery Bag with some loose glitters sitting right in the bubble wrap pack but nothing too severe. Looks like this one consists of opalescent microglitter, neon lime stars, hot pink hearts and squares, and matching lime green and hot pink smaller hex/square glitter. Not sure how applying this will be clean at all - might be a mess! But nonetheless, colour me intrigued. (And neon!)
This is the Sakura Maturi Eau De Parfum Mini Rollerball - and I'll be honest, I don't remember Rainbow Honey offering perfume before. I was pretty tunnel visioned with the MLP polish though, so that could be why. Anyway, apparently this guy is "making a return" for the spring. I personally LOVE the small of Sakura Matsuri - I was first introduced with the scent with the cuticle sticks and I freaking LOVE IT. This tiny package is also super freaking cute. I am dying. Check out the mini cuteness:
And now my favourite part... THE POLISH MINIS! I got Poffin Party, Sparkling Agave (love that name) and Unscented Top Coat. How coincidental is it that Poffin Party matches the palate of Sparking Agave perfectly? Initial thoughts: Sparking Agave looks shimmering and amazing. Really love that shade and the name sake! Seriously can't wait to swatch it. Poffin Party, I gotta swatch - I think dot/circle glitter can be hit or miss and depending on the glitter. I've seen a lot of circle/dot glitter to be quite thick and it's very unflattering - not sure if it's just something I see, or what not. Anyway, I can't really tell from the mini bottle if the glitters are thick or not, but I gotta say that I love that colour palette! Reminds me of a subdued Magic Cake!
So I hope you enjoyed this "UNBOXING" post! I know it's not my nails, but my thumb and index nail are hurting and I think it'll be a couple of weeks to get some growth back.
Do you like these kinds of UNBOXING posts? Should I keep going with it? Did you grab Rainbow Honey's February Mystery Bag? What did you get? Are they the same? Or are there a few permutations going around? Be sure to let me know - as a huge fan, I'd love to know!
