Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk Collection Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! Valentine's Day has come and gone, but I recently received my first Rainbow Honey order. It included the lovely Sweet Talk collection, so naturally I had to share these beauties with you!

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk collection

The collection includes three polishes - one sheer with glitter, one creme with shimmer, and one glitter topper. I also received an extra one (My Love) as a bonus for spending more than $50. My Love was a special Valentine's Day release so I don't know if it is still available.

This is my first experience with Rainbow Honey and I have to say I am really impressed. I would recommend this collection to anyone who likes really girly pink colours. Each polish was very easy to apply and flattering on the nails.

Be Mine is definitely my favourite of the collection. It's a pink creme with a gold flake shimmer. The pink colour is rather interesting - a bit muted, but also with slight peach undertones - and it is a very flattering colour on me. I find some pinks scream "Barbie Hands!!" but not this one. The formula was perfect and I used three coats here.

Sweet Talk is a sheer white polish with pale ice blue, red and purple hexes. The glitter here is tiny to small in size so it is not overwhelming. There's also a subtle pink shimmer but it's only slightly visible on the nail. This is three coats and I finished with a coat of Gelous and Seche Vite because the glitter made it a bit bumpy.

XOXO is a clear-based glitter topper with an iridescent shimmer, gold micro-glitter, and tiny and small red hexes. It also seems to have some holo micro-glitter. It is not very densely packed, but it has lots of shimmer, which I love. I used two coats over Julep Ava here.

My Love was the bonus polish I received, and it is not part of the Sweet Talk collection. This is an amazing shimmery glitter topper. There's an iridescent/pink shimmer, tiny gold and holo hex glitter, and sheer white and pink hearts. This is one coat over China Glaze Sea Spray. The hearts are a bit more sparse and you will need to turn the bottle upside down and shake it to distribute them.

As I said I was really happy with this collection, and I will definitely be wearing these again. If you don't like pink, I think it goes without saying that this collection will not appeal to you. I love that the formula on each one is great. As much as I love indies, I find they can be hit and miss sometimes. The packaging is also wonderful and adds to the appeal of these polishes.

I bought these directly from Rainbow Honey but you can also get them from Shoppe Eclecticco, but they only seem to be carrying Be Mine and XOXO.

What do you think of these? Do you own any Rainbow Honey? Any recommendations for my future orders from them? ;)

  4. I'm in love with Rainbow Honey. I have the Yokai collection as well as many from each collection they have. I own Sweet Talk and XOXO from this particular collection and grabbed their limited "Dearly Beloved" from the over $50 promo. I can't get enough of them and I'd have to recommend Spirit of Wonder if you like Sweet Talk. I love your swatches!
