Rainbow Honey The Yokai Collection - Swatches and Review - Autumn Limited Edition

Happy Friday everyone!! I have a gorgeous collection to show you tonight!

Rainbow Honey just announced The Yokai Collection, a limited edition release for Autumn 2012. This is a preview of the collection and it will officially go up for sale on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

First up, some bottle shots. I absolutely love the packaging, as well as the care with which they are packaged and shipped. These adorable boxes were bubble wrapped and then wrapped in metallic silver tissue paper and closed with a silver heart sticker. Perfect packaging to go with the brand logo.

Before I show you these amazing polishes I want to talk a little bit about formula and application on all three, as they were very similar (any differences will be noted in the description before each polish). All 3 polishes were fully opaque in 2 coats and were completely smooth with one coat of Poshe. They do NEED top coat because they are packed with micro-fine glitter and are on the "dull" side without it. But one coat of top coat brings them to life. And they are stunning. 

All 3 were also on the thick side, I will probably add a couple drops of thinner to them before wearing them again, not a big deal in my opinion. I do recommend making sure your first coat is completely dry before adding your second coat on all of these polishes, it makes application much smoother.


As usual, my camera does not do these justice. These are so much prettier in person. All photos show two coats of polish with one coat of Poshe. I do apologize for my super short nubs, I chose a really bad time to chop my nails. LOL

First up, Kawako. Kawako is a medium to deep royal blue filled with small silver and blue flakies. The formula on this one was thicker than the other two but not overly problematic.

Next we have Kitsune. Kitsune is a nude or camel colored base with glitter in brown/bronze, rust and orange as well as gold shimmer and micro-flakies.

Lastly we have my favorite from the collection, Oni. Oni is a bronze base that is packed with gold and violet micro-flakes. I even think I spotted some dark purple and fuchsia micro-glitter in the sun (but I wasn't able to capture this in any of the pics). I think some of the flakies may have a duochrome effect because I did see slight flashes of green as well. This is one you have to see in person to truly appreciate. My jaw actually dropped when I saw this in the sun.
