Review: Rainbow Honey Nail Polish

Category: , , , , , / 12/25/2014
Did you know that many nail polishes aren't vegan? Many conventional brands, particularly red shades, contain carmine. When you're looking for polish, I recommend getting one that's both vegan and free of the "Big 3"(formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate). One brand that passes this test? Rainbow Honey.

Pros:
  • Super cool themes and polish names
  • Available in many fun colors
  • Big 3 free (formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate)
  • Mini (half size) bottles offered
  • All vegan line
Cons:
Mini bottles from the Final Battle collection
  • Your favorite colors might be limited editions
Summary:
Rainbow Honey makes a wonderfully colorful line of polishes. They are constantly releasing new colors that are more tempting than candy. I picked up a few colors from the Final Battle series, inspired by the video game Final Fantasy VII. (It doesn't get much nerdier than that!) They are stunning colors and the video game theme makes it particularly fun for me.

The polish is free of the "big 3" (formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate), but it still has that "nail polish smell." When I plugged the ingredients into the EWG Skin Deep database, it came out at a moderate 5. This seemed weighed down by the use of fragrance, but that is a "may contain" item so I suspect the actual rating might be lower. As for the performance, it seemed to last a little longer than conventional polishes. I should note, however, that the colors I tried contained a lot of glitter (which can be stubborn to remove). I love how the company offers some "mini" versions (half size bottles for half the price). I hardly ever finish a bottle, so I love this option.

If you're looking for fun nail polish colors in fresh new hues, check out Rainbow Honey.
