Rainbow Honey : The Yokai Collection

Dee has outdone herself again! Have you seen her newest collection? Unlike her other collections, The Yokai Collection are not just glitter toppers this time - they are stand alone colors. Really pretty stand-alone colors. Dee contacted me a while back to ask if I would like to review her new collection. Of course I said yes! I love her creations! But instead of getting the polishes long before the launch date (October 13th) I only received my package on the 17th. Which is really quite typical of international shipping.

At first I was thinking, maybe Dee might not send me a package because I am so far away! But when it did show up, I was happy beyond belief! I was grinning - like this :D - the whole time from my post box to my office.

Enough chit chat from me! Let me show you the pretty polishes~


Of course I have to show you Rainbow Honey's famous box packaging! There's an ingredient list, big 3 free disclaimer and of course the little window for you to peek at the polish inside!


The Yokai (妖怪) literally means monster. In the Japanese culture, it stands for the supernatural monsters form Japanese folklore. Dee, picked 3 of these yokais - kitsune, oni and kawako.

Since I got these babies late, I will be featuring them one at a time to give them all the attention they deserve!

First up is kitsune, the magical fox - the nine-tailed fox from Japanese folkore that is! kitsune is a lovely polish. It is a nude-peach polish packed will a whole lot of glitter. There is a good amount of gold glitter and glass flecks, hex glitters of red, green and brown and I think I spied a few holo glitters in there too!!



kitsune, like the magical nine-tailed fox, is a shapeshifter. It looks more on the yellow side on me as compared to the polish in the bottle and on other bloggers. I rather like this quality actually, always something new :)


Application of kitsune was lovely. Even though it is packed with glitter, it applied easily and evenly. All I needed was 2 coats to achieve the opacity in these photos. I did not use any top coat in these photos. You can see that it did dry a little gritty but nothing a thick coat of top coat can't solve!


Oh yes, did I mention these polishes are LIMITED EDITION! That is the reason why I was soooo happy that I got them! Do hurry on to Rainbow Honey's SHOP to grab them before they sell out! Of course, remember to follow them on Facebook as well as their blog for more updates!

These polishes were provided to me for review. All opinions are my own and in no way influenced by the company.

Honestly though, I was beating myself over how I wouldn't stand a chance to get these polishes because of my No-Buy. If I wasn't on a No-Buy I would definitely bought all the polishes in a heart beat!
