Not too long ago, I posted my first review of Bubble Beam, paired over a basic black creme. I wanted to test this out on its own, though, and see what it would look like without any base color. The result? A punchy, fun, super-shimmery blue jelly. Check out my swatches below!
Rainbow Honey's new labels don't make for a completely text-free color swatch, but it isn't a big deal.
This color is ridiculously pretty, fun, and complex. It only took me three coats to get to this opacity, which is great because it stuns as a top coat, so I was expecting it to take more work. Do you guys remember the book Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister? This polish reminds me of that.
It chipped after a couple of days of wear, which is pretty normal for glitter and flake-heavy polishes, so it didn't bother me. I never expect glitters to last very long, but usually (as is such in this case) you can wear them as just a top coat and they last much longer. I change my manicure fairly often anyway, so I don't really care.
As usual, the formula on this is great, applying smoothly and requiring only three coats for full opacity. I had no issues with dry times and I didn't need to employ the foil method for removal, which is always nice. My husband sometimes shoots me a weird look when he sees my alien foil hands, so I try to refrain from freaking him out too much. ;) I continue to be impressed by the unique creations Rainbow Honey produces, my friends. There really are no other brands like them on the market.
