Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you from Rainbow Honey's new The Sweet Talk Collection. This collection consists of three delicate colors that scream Valentine's Day. Here is XOXO- a ravishing blend of glitters and flakes in a clear base for easy use over any manicure, in all of its macro sparkly glory.
XOXO is loaded with tiny iridescent white/gold flakes and lots of small and medium red hexes. I wanted to try layering XOXO over a few different shades to give you an idea of how this baby sparkles. First up is one coat of XOXO over two coats of Mint Polish- Original Mint (don't worry! I've got a review post of Original Mint on its own coming up soon!)
Next is one coat of XOXO over four(!) coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure- Polar Bare. I wanted to try XOXO over a soft white jelly so I grabbed Polar Bare since I hadn't tried it yet. I had no idea it would be so sheer! I do love the way this combo looks though. The gold tones in the sparkly flakes definitely shine against the white underwear.
Here is one coat of XOXO over two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure- Thinking of Blue. I'm pretty sure both of these Sally Hansen polishes I used have been discontinued and I got them for super cheap at Rite Aid or CVS. I think this whole line was just revamped with new colors so these two shades might not be readily available in your area.
|The flakes also have a hint of pink shimmer going on!|
Pros- I love the packaging that Rainbow Honey uses. Nice round bottles that come in a cute little box. The formula was a breeze to work with and I had no issues with glitter placement. I had a great amount of red hexes end up on each nail.
Cons- I don't like the way the iridescent flaky bits look over dark colors but that's definitely just me.
Overall- This glitter topper is a winner in my book. You need it!
