Rainbow Honey Best Friend Swatch and Review

Ah so sorry for the delay - I have been running interviews and was all over the place. I'll end the week off here for now with Rainbow Honey Best Friend, and then continue on Tuesday as it's a stat holiday here on Monday in Beautiful British Columbia. Ahhhh, anyhow today I have yet another polish from Rainbow Honey's Summer Mixtape collection. If you haven't already, check out Rainbow Honey's Soundcloud for the playlist based on the collection (or rather the collection being based on the playlist.) The shop is going through a restock today (as of now) but I believe they'll be open later tonight. And now for Best Friend.

From Rainbow Honey: Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white…and in neon glitter!

This glitter topper is inspired by 'Best Friend' by the band Foster the People (whom I assume everyone knows since they're fairly popular!). Here's a direct link to the song in the Summer Mixtape collection - however it's a remix by Wave Racer. If you dig it, I believe Foster the People has an official lyrics video on YouTube. This polish features black and white triangles amongst neon glitter in different shapes and sizes. It also has that signature Rainbow Honey shimmer. No fuss with application - the glitter is fairly dense. There was a bit of placing needed to avoid the bigger glitters stacking on top of one another. It's pretty fun! Here's one coat of Rainbow Honey Best Friend over top of Rainbow Honey Stolen Dance, also from the Summer Mixtape collection.

And because this was just begging for something SUPER fun, I made some quick rainbow nails and used a coat of Best Friend over top. SO MUCH COLOUR!!!

I love the rainbow look because the black and white triangle glitters had a chance to shine! I think these loud multi shape multi size glitter toppers are definitely this summer's trend. With the right application, this glitter can kick a lot of ass! If you want that extra colour on your nails, this polish is perfect. I'm a bit boring though and I don't imagine myself using this kind of colourful polish in other seasons. I'm just boring, haha!

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's trend of bright colour multi shape multi size glitter toppers? Do you have a favourite? How do you like to wear it?

  2. I'm not a big fan of shaped glitter, but I'm into these teeny tiny triangles. I like how you layered such a loud glitter top coat over a soft jade green! <3

    1. I think putting it over a subtle colour is the only way to show off how CRAZY a glitter topper really is! The triangles are growing on me, I'll give you that... But I keep wanting to triforce them...

    1. They're super easy girlio! You just paint your nails in stripes, one colour at a time, going on each nail. Same method I did for my DOGE rainbow nails, hehe! :D :D <3
