Rainbow Honey Mixtape (partial review)

Good evening lovelies!  Do I have an East Coast (and West Coast at this hour) night owls up and reading posts right now?  Because I have a great one for you!  Rainbow Honey recently came out with their Summer Mixtape Collection and it's full of bright, fun colors that really capture the essence of summer.  The Mixtape Collection has "12 new cemes, shimmers and glitters!"  Something for everyone to love.  I have 3 of them to share with you right now.  The Mixtape collection is available for purchase NOW and each bottle is $10...but...I have a discount code to share with you!  Use MIXTAPE@) to receive 20% off your order.  The code is good until 8/31/14 - not get to shopping (after you read my post of course)!

*PRESS SAMPLE*


I Wanna Get Better is a "peach crelly full of bright and neon glitters."  I am a big fan of the added gold shimmer against this beautiful color.  I also loved all the fun shaped glitters - stars, circles and squares, oh my!  The formula was a touch sheer and I feel I could have gone with one more coat for complete coverage.  The application was fabulous though.  Plenty of glitter came out and spread well on my nails.  I used 3 coats of I Wanna Get Better and 1 layer of topcoat.  





Control, a "hot shimmering fuchsia" is truly hot!  This pink is loud and in your face and I love it.  Control also has lovely shimmery flecks in a mix of purple and gold.  It really stands out against the neon pink base.  The formula and application of Control were both spot on.  I had great coverage and opacity in 1 coat, though I used 2.  The formula was nice and creamy and easy to work with.  I used 1 layer of topcoat to finish.

Elevate, one of the best glitters I've tried from Rainbow Honey is an "Ibiza-meets-New-Wave blend of glitters!"  Here are all the fun things I found in this amazing glitter topper: circles, triangles, hexs, and squares in light and medium teal, pink, purple, white and yellow.  So much going on, but it works so well.  There is also a dose of blue shimmer and as per the last 2 polishes, I love it!  I used 1 coat, plus a little dabbing of Elevate over Control.  The formula was great.  The glitters are really packed in and suspended well.  The ratio of glitter to base perfect and the glitters all spread well on my nails.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat
