Rainbow Honey 2012 Holiday Collection

Rainbow Honey, one of my favorite indie polish makers, came out with a holiday collection a while ago and I was lucky enough to get to review them. There are four shades that are meant to capture the brilliance of the season.

Annual Emotion is a metallic silver made with "aluminum coated flakes" and a light holographic sparkle. Gorgeous and very festive. A little thick but I expected that with such an uber metallic. This is two coats.

Gilded Angel is the same type of polish as Annual Emotion but in gold. You can pick up the holo a bit more in this as it's a silver color so it stands out. It was the best formula in the bunch, applied very easily. Two coats.

Spirit of Wonder is a while cream base with glitter bits in two shades of blue. There is also a subtle blue shimmer and larger holo hex glitters, but honestly those elements get lost in the thickness of the white base, you can't even tell they're there. In the end the polish looked too chunky and it made it hard to apply. Two coats plus topcoat.

Glittering Rapture is one I've shown you before, in my holiday mani post. This time I layered it over Spirit of Wonder, which ended up looking like I just layered it over a white. It brings out the awesome gold flakes and is a nice contrast to the multi-shaped deep red glitters. This is a bit on the thick side so take care. Two coats.

You can purchase Rainbow Honey lacquers at for $10 for a full size bottle or $5 for a mini. Right now shipping is free with orders of $25 or more. Have you picked any of these up?
