Rainbow Honey - The Worst Possible Thing

The promised swatch post! Rainbow Honey - The Worst Possible Thing is "A sheer layering polish, jewel encrusted just as Rarity would endorse, shimmering with opalescent flakes in purple and blue and a multitude of holographic and iridescent glitters" (official description). I think that's spot on! I can see giant flakes, large hex glitters in purple, medium hex glitters in purple, light blue and dark blue, and the promised holo/iridescent small glitters (all sizes relative to others, of course).

This could be layered over so many colours - black, purples, blues, light pinks and nudes, white...it's stunning. Here it is on a nail wheel:

Left: one coat of TWPT alone
Middle: one coat of TWPT over Avon - Licquorice (creme black)
Right: one coat of TWPT over Maxfactor Forever Strong Pro - Nude Rose (rose pink), which was too dark and muffled the smallest glitters

All photos below are layered over Avon - Licquorice because that was the swatch it showed up on the best. In future I'll try it over some of the other colours I mentioned. I'll probably share the pictures, if you ask nicely.

Some more pictures (some are duplicates of this post, can't go assuming you've all read both!):

Firstly, look at that enormous flakie! <3

So many colours!

I ordered this in the 7ml mini size, so it's a cute little bottle. The brush is short and not as flexible as I'm used to but it didn't affect application.

An out-of-focus picture that shows the enormous amount of rainbow-hued sparkle you get in bright sunshine (it was fleeting, sadly)

Application is good, I applied one good thick coat of this glitterbomb. Minimal shuffling of larger glitters was required because I am a compulsive rearranger ;)

I'm in love with this polish, I think I might end up ordering a full-sized bottle! All their polishes are 'big-3 free' and come in 7ml or 15ml bottles. What do you think? Do you own any Rainbow Honey polishes?

  4. I LOVE this polish too! I got it in the full size and was VERY happy with my first RH polish! The flakies can definitely be huge but sometimes annoying when they end up at the tip of your nail.

    1. They can, I've had to knock a few back onto the nail sternly :)
