So if you've been following along, I've got more Rainbow Honey this week and up next is a handful from the latest and greatest collection - Summer Mixtape! And in case you're wondering... HELL YEAH THERE'S A SUMMER MIXTAPE! I am surprised no one is mentioning it either because the mixtape kicks ass! Check it out on Rainbow Honey's Soundcloud here. Does it make more sense for you? Because honestly I found the playlist tied everything together for me. Up on deck first is Rainbow Honey Night Sky.
From Rainbow Honey: Let this mix of stars, moons, and shimmery glitters be the fire in your eyes!
In case you're wondering about the crypticness, "Night Sky" is based on the namesake by a band called Chvrches (whom I've actually shot in concert as well) - they're awesome! Here's a direct link to the song. This is purely a glitter topper and it doesn't have any intention for a build-up potential. For the base colour, I actually used another polish Rainbow Honey had sent me in their pilot Mystery Bags from Christmas 2013. It's only called 'Sample' and I don't believe it was ever officially released. (You can see it alone here.) Application wise, Rainbow Honey Night Sky is a fairly densed glitter topper and all you need is one coat. Finishing it off with a top coat gives it a nice effortlessly pretty look!
I love taming my glitter polishes with a matte look, so here's how it looks with one coat of OPI Matte Top Coat:
Overall, this polish was great. Typically I am not a fan of moon glitter, but the stars and easy application made this one a winner. I wore the matte look to the last wedding of the summer that I had to shoot and it was a big hit with the bridesmaids - fellow lacqueristas they were too!
If you like this polish, check out the rest of the Summer Mixtape collection on Rainbow Honey's website and until August 18th, 2014 - you can use the code MIXTAPE20 to get 20% off your purchase.
What do you think of this "summer mixtape" inspired polish? What would you consider your 'track of the summer'? How would you pair up Night Sky?
