Mini Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag Review - July 2016


WhatRainbow Honey Mystery Bag contains cute nail polishes and body care products from RH's upcoming collections. This review is for the Mini bag.
When: Ships at the beginning of each month
Cost: $11(mini) or $22(large) per month . Nail-, Body-, or Soap-only bags also available for $12.50 per month. Free shipping for all subscriptions.

It looks like Rainbow Honey tried something different this month for mini bag subscribers. Instead of the usual two nail polishes and a few body care samples, we got three full size polishes and a cuticle oil extra. Current subscribers were also offered the option of upgrading their mini subscriptions to the Just Nails subscription (three full size nail polishes a month) at no extra charge. I'm torn - I do love their yummy scents (last month's Strawberry Peach Sangria was the best!) but their glitter toppers are sooo pretty. 

Boot Cut Jeans Nail Polish - This sexy dark denim lacquer pairs well with your favorite "skinny" jeans, trendy top and fabulous shoes!
Lemonade Parade Glitter Topper - Packed with fizzy lemon yellow, peach and strawberry glitters, this gorgeous glitter topper is the ultimate ode to a classic summer lemonade with a twist!
Wear's the Party Nail Polish - This super cool, "matches with everything" layering polish is accented with a bevy of retro pink, blue and yellow glitters with shimmer, perfect for a summer's night out!

I know I said I love Rainbow Honey for their glitter toppers, but Boot Cut Jeans is my favorite in this bunch. It's the perfect blue for me and my wardrobe. I have about 50 shades of blue jeans and this color will match all of them! Plus one coat is enough for full coverage :) Wear's the Party is also pretty and will match most of my clothes since it's a cool subdued color (about 95% of my wardrobe is comprised of black, blue and gray tops...how boring, huh?). I was surprised that you don't need to do a lot of fishing in the bottle to get the glitters out of this one. I may have a harder time matching Lemonade Parade but since it's a glitter topper it could actually go with almost anything. See what the polishes look like in the next couple of photos:

Mai Tai Cuticle Oil Rollerball - A lush blend of island coconuts, pineapple, orange and rum. There's no nail woe worse than peeling cuticles. They're ugly, painful, and just plain annoying. So make sure you have your cuticle oil nearby! This smells mostly like pina colada but there's a tiny hint of orange thrown in there for good measure.

If you love funky indie nail polishes as much as I do, RH is reasonably-priced, and their soap and body line smells delicious. Their mystery bags are a fun way to introduce yourself to what they have to offer. You can subscribe to that here.
