Rainbow Honey: The Yokai Collection

I've been absent from the blog and Facebook for the last few weeks but I'm back. And I have some very gorgeous lacquers to share from Rainbow Honey.

I recently received The Yokai Collection from Rainbow Honey, which is a limited edition, three piece collection. Yokai are supernatural monsters in Japanese folklore so this collection makes for a great break from traditional Halloween themed collections that are currently on the market.

I used two coats of each lacquer and one coat of Poshe fast dry topcoat. All photos were taken in natural light, without flash.

Kitsune: The Magical White Fox
Kitsune has a golden cream base that is chock full of autumnal hues -- gold, bronze, and orange -- with a golden shimmer throughout.
Kitsune is an excellent way to do a neutral glitter. The polish is soft and subtle in a good way. Kitsune has a warmth that makes it seem to glow.

Kawako: The Mischievous River Child
Kawako has a stunning midnight blue base with blue and silver glitter throughout. It has a somewhat iridescent quality that you can see in the photo above.

Kawako is a versatile sort of lacquer that would be perfect for a night on the town or paired with business wear. This reminds me of the ocean depths and is definitely a polish I found it easy to dive into.

Oni: The Malevolent Wild Demon
Oni has a hearty brown base with golden flecks and glitters disbursed throughout.
Oni was my favorite of the trio, although I loved each of them. Like Kitsune, Oni seems to glow from within and is the perfect fall color. This one makes me want to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.

Application was great with all three lacquers. They are very dense so it's best to wait a little bit between layers.

Rainbow Honey polishes are available here. The Yokai Collection went on sale yesterday aYou should also check out the Rainbow Honey Facebook page for updates and other great information.

Note: The products in this post were provided to me for my honest review.
