Rainbow Honey Equestria Collection Part 2

Picture Heavy Post!!!

Hey all! Sorry for my absence yesterday my daughter was poorly and needed me, but I promise ill make up for it today. I have the rest of the Rainbow Honey Equestria Collection to show you, if you missed part 1 you can find it here. There's a lot of pretties to get through so fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride...!

20% Cooler

20% Cooler is a beautiful baby blue base with shimmer a-plenty and masses of multicoloured glitter. The polish is sheer so its great for layering but you only need one coat to get good even coverage of glitter when you layer it over a base colour. Here I popped it over Barry M Cyan Blue and it made the colours pop! I topped this off with one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Sorry for the blurry photograph but you get the idea!

Pinkie Promise

Next up is the beautifully girly Pinkie Promise. A pink base packed with shimmer and a party of glitter! This has hot pink hex glitter, gold hex glitter, blue hex glitter and lots of bar glitter too, its like a festival for your nails. This polish can be worn on its own and builds to opacity in three coats but here I have popped one layer over Zoya Tru and added a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Like a party on your finger tips!

Here you can really see the shimmer in the polish

The Worst Possible Thing

This is the BEST possible nail polish! This is the one that stands out for me as its so versatile. It's a mixture of multicoloured, holographic and iridescent glitters with a smattering of flakies in various colours. I thought the colours of the glitter would show best layered over a delicious royal purple so I used Wet 'n Wild Buffy The Violet Slayer that my friend Bea sent for me to try (she knows I have a weakness for a good purple!). The swatches show one layer of The Worst Possible Thing topped with one coat of Gelous and one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

I wasn't happy that I couldn't capture the colours of the flakies or the glitter like I wanted to because of glare on the nails. So I decided to pop a coat of Essie Matte About You over the top. Pure magic happened...

Look at those pink flakies! Its like they appeared from no where :-)

Now you can see the different colours of the glitter


The final polish in the collection is Celestia, this was one of the secret gift polishes that Rainbow Honey kindly sent out to those that purchased the whole Equestira Collection.
Celestia is a beautiful iridescent baby blue polish, its so delicate and sparkly that I just couldn't do it justice. It is a mixture of iridescent micro glitters, flakies and shimmer. This is another layering polish and here I layered it over Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream which complimented it beautifully.
The swatches show one layer of Celestial followed by one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

A delicate rainbow of shimmer

So pretty, but I couldn't help wondering if there was more to this polish than first meets the eye. Could there be a dark, mysterious side? I though I'd give it a go over Cult Nails Nevermore and wow...

The rainbow of glitter has come alive!

Then I thought I'll just add a coat of Essie Matte About You...

See the flakies now? :-)

So there you have it the Rainbow Honey Equestria Collection in all its glory, a fabulous range of polish that I really cant fault. They were all beautiful and unique and being sheer they have lots of layering options.

Rainbow Honey polishes are available on Etsy and you can catch details of shop openings, new releases and sneak peeks at their Facebook page and their blog.
