Rainbow Honey: February 2015 Mystery Bag

Hi friends!

It’s that time of the month. My nails are now covered in glitter because my Rainbow Honey Mini Mystery Bag has arrived!

Check out what I got for February!

Technical Stuff: Rainbow Honey is an indie nail polish, bath and beauty company. They also offer nail care products like cuticle creams, base coats, and scented top coats.

Every month Rainbow Honey sends out both a Full size, ($25) and a Mini, ($12) Mystery Bag filled with several nail polishes and skin care items based around the scent of the month. I get the mini because I am cheap, and also because I can never finish a bottle of nail polish.

Check out more of my Rainbow Honey reviews here.

And you can sign up on the Rainbow Honey website if you’re interested in trying out a Mystery Bag, too!

Fun Stuff: The scent this month was Carnival Candy. I’m a sucker for carnival and circus scents, (I don’t know why because I hate both. I’m weird, friends), so I was particularly pleased with this offering.

Of course being Valentine’s Day, Rainbow Honey threw in some sparkly pink and red nail polish, and we’ll start there!

Tsukimi, Glow Cloud, and Crimson Nebula.If you think my nail swatches look painted unevenly, you should see my actual nails. PROFESSIONAL right here.

I had some issues with the colors from last month chipping after about a day of wear, so I’m hoping I have better luck with this month’s formula. We shall see. As for the colors:

Tsukimi-shimmery violet sea of holo and iridescent glitters!
Yes, please. This is everything I want in a nail polish: bright colors and glitter, thank you, RH.

Glow Cloud-“ALL HAIL” this wondrous and dreamy mix of flakes and prismatic glitter and shimmer!
I don’t want to speak ill of a polish based on the NightVale Glow Cloud, but this reminds me of Lemon Sorbet from last month. Just less yellow. It adds a cool shimmer to dark nail polish colors like purple, but not super unique to me.

Crimson Nebula-“This sultry mix of holographic star dust builds up to a deeper red with every coat!”
At first this really reminded me of the Master from the December Mystery Bag, but it does become red as you apply more color. Overall, a nice, somewhat, subtle red shimmer.

Carnival Candy Products

Carnival Candy Perfume Oil- “…reminiscent of your favorite memories of pink carnival candy! Our new frangrance will leave behind a delicious sweet scent for this month and all year long!”

This does smell like cotton candy, it’s very sweet. Simple and sugary. I always love a roller ball applicator so that’s nice, too. It’s no SS Foxcroft Fairgrounds or Black Violet Ringmaster, but Rainbow Honey never claimed to be expert perfumers. As a simple carnival candy scent, this is sweet and pleasant. I’ll hang on to this one! (Yeah, I’m a carnival/circus scent snob. #notsorry).

Carnival Candy Cuticle Balm- Their classic formula but with the Carnival Candy scent. I am loving this. I need my cuticles to smell like cotton candy, so now I’m all set. (The cotton candy scent is more subtle in the balm form, so no worries if you don’t feel like smelling like cotton candy.)

Carnival Candy Foot Massage Lotion- This is part of their new spa line lotion, and I really liked it. I walk all day for my job, and then I’m also a runner, (when I’m not juggling my other 567 obligations), so my feet need lots of love. (Information you needed to know about me, right?) This was silky smooth, very subtly scented, and it sank in to my skin after a few minutes. Perfect for right before bed!

Overall:

Carnival Candy was obviously a hit for me. (If RH could do a donuts theme next month, I’d be set!) I am pretty happy to have several products in this scent.I might be reaching a point of saturation on Cuticle Balms, though.

But I still like the nail polish that gets sent every month in the Mystery Bags. At this time, the $12 mini bag is still a really good value for me and any extra products I don’t want I can always find good homes for!

See you next month, RH!

Questions of the Day:
-Have you ever tried Rainbow Honey?
-What do you think of this month’s bag?
-If you could have your dream scent turned into products-what would it be? (DONUTS FTW.)

Love,

Rebs!
