Rainbow Honey's Yokai Collection

Today I have a special treat for you. This is my second full collection review! It's also my first try at taking mani pics in my homemade light box. I think I got the hang of it for the most part. Without further ado, here is the limited edition Yokai Collection by Rainbow Honey, available as of Oct. 13th 2012.

"The Limited Edition Yokai Collection - inspired by some of my favorite mythical creatures" - RH

First up is
""Kitsune" can refer to your ordinary red fox, but our "Kitsune" is a glorious nine-tailed creature: fiery, wise, and absolutely gorgeous. In a cream base full of gold shimmer and flecks you will find an array of glitter in a bonfire palette, ready to spark a fire in your heart." - RH
Think something along these lines:

This polish is just amazing. A blingy nude that borders on glamorous. A great way to wear a nude polish without it being boring. There's even a bit of holo orange glitter in there, and you know how happy holo makes me. This is 3 coats, with topcoat. Opaque in 2 coats.

 With an experimental mattified ring finger. I don't suggest it; it takes away from everything that makes this polish special.

Overall Grade:

Next we have

""Kawako" is our interpretation of the Kappa, depicted as everything from a water sprite to a river demon. Erring on the gentler side, "Kawako" is full of gorgeous silver and ice blue shimmer, with the occasional iridescent blue flake. " - RH
This is Kappa:

This was the first polish I tested in the collection. I was amazed at the opacity! Opaque in 1 coat, perfect in 2. There are indeed a few flakes here and there but on the nail, they are obstructed by the thick opaque base. However all of the micro silver sparkles shine through brilliantly. This polish is like a night sky. I had a bit of trouble photographing this one, but I'm sure you can get an idea of what it looks like from the pictures. 2 coats, and a topcoat.

 Here it is mattified.

 Overall Grade:

 Lastly is
"Let's be honest, Oni are generally depicted as wicked and hideous. Our "Oni" may be wicked and supernatural, but with its myriad of glass flecks and multi-chromatic shimmer it is hard to call it hideous. In fact, the consensus seems to be that it is one of the most beautiful and intense polishes out there this fall!" - RH
Here is Oni:

This one is the least opaque of the bunch and will need 2-3 coats. Over a nice black you might only need 1. I love that this polish looks simple but when you get up close and personal with it, pink and multi-color sparks emerge. 3 coats, and a topcoat.

 Oni mattified, love it!

Overall Grade:

  My favorite of the bunch?
Are you surprised that the one with holo glitters is my favorite?! 

These polishes are all great for fall! Check them out here!
