Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk Collection Valentine's Day 2013 Sweet Talk And XOXO Swatches and Review

Welllll, wow! It's been a little while hasn't it? I didn't expect to take a two month hiatus from the blog. The holidays just hit me a little harder than I expected and you know how it goes- life gets in the way.

But, I received these two beautiful polishes from Rainbow Honey's Sweet Talk Collection and just had to share them with you (check the end of the post for a $5 off coupon code). I'm completely in love with all the polishes I've used from Rainbow Honey. The polishes are unique, and the branding is professional, creative, and beautiful.

There are three polishes in this collection-
  • Be Mine- "A lovely kiss of pink on your nails with a dusting of microshimmer and gold flecks."
  • Sweet Talk- "A decadently sweet collection of pastel glitters in a white jelly with hidden shimmer."
  • XOXO- "A ravishing blend of glitters and flakes in a clear base for easy use over any manicure."
I received the two I was looking forward to most, Sweet Talk and XOXO for review.

The polishes came in this cute cellophane bag.

I love Rainbow Honey's boxes for their polish.

These are the Goldilocks of brushes- not to thick, not too thin, not too stiff, and not too floppy.

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk in the sun
This was 3 coats. It looks a thicker in some places than others, but that is more to blame on my application than anything else. You could layer it over an opaque white, but I like the slight translucency of the white base.

This was 1 coat of XOXO over Sweet Talk. Man, this polish is gorgeous. It would be my pick of the two polishes and I was really expecting to love Sweet Talk more. Wait until you see this one over a dark base!

This is one coat of XOXO over two coats on Black Plum. Ugh, this is sickeningly gorgeous!

The Sweet Talk Collection is available from Rainbow Honey for a limited time here.  Until February 28th 2013, you can recieve $5 off your order with offer code SWEETTALK$5.

Disclosure: I was provided these polishes for consideration by Rainbow Honey. My opinions are my own and as always, my first priority is you lovely people who read my blog.


  1. SICKENING. I love both of them!

    1. Sick, I know right?! They both make me want to throw up in my mouth a little from all the pretty. ;)

  2. MY LOVE! I am so happy to see you ;) (I've written you an email in my head at least 1,000 times!). I LOVE BOTH OF THESE! Very cute stuff <3

    1. Yay it's me! Sorry I've been such a bad friend. I'm the one who owes you an email!

  3. I like the idea of Sweet Talk, it looks great in the bottle. I can never rock milky colors like that, though, they just look off. XOXO looks pretty awesome, especially over the Black Plum color.

    1. I like milky glitters but I've lost some of my enthusiasm for them as it seems like there are only so many versions you can do. But XOXO is definitely my favorite.

  4. Haven't seen any posts from you for awhile, but as you said the holidays and such can get really busy! Damn, I love how these look over white and dark bases!

  5. I just love their name, forget the polishes. Actually, wait... don't forget the polishes. ;)


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
