Rainbow Honey ~ Unstealable Jewel


Rainbow Honey ~ Unstealable Jewel
Holographic silver diamonds, pink, silver, and microfine glitter in a sheer rose jelly

Unstealable Jewel looks as if it’s difficult to build up to full opacity; so I chose to give it some pretty underwear. I looked around in my Helmer for a while, unsure of which colour I should chose for this pink glitter. I had purple in mind at first, but I just didn’t seem to be able to find a suitable one. (Note to self: Buy more purple polishes!)

I finally decided for a red; a deep, dark, seductive red: Nubar’s “Seductive Red”, which is such a beautiful polish. It was actually perfect after the first coat; I gave it two, mostly out of habit.

I sponged Unstealable Jewel onto the tips, except for the ring fingers, where I applied it onto the entire nails, also to show you how evenly the glitter spread out.


The pics are with one layer of Poshé top coat.


This is a very easy glitter to work with. The glitter spreads out and I didn’t have to fish for the diamond shaped glitters. The only little problem I had was in fact my own fault: A diamond shaped glitter got stuck on my cuticle and I had to push it around to get it away from there. But as I said: I just shouldn’t have gotten the brush that close to the cuticles :)


The only thing I don’t like much about this polish is the short brush. It’s short because my bottle is only a 7ml bottle, and there’s not room for a longer brush. So the problem can be solved by buying a full sized bottle, Haha!


Here’s the underwear alone – there’s no top coat on yet:


Isn’t that just the perfect base for a pink glitter?

Here’s what Rainbow Honey write about their polishes:
Rainbow Honey was born out of a love for color and a penchant for creativity. To create Rainbow Honey, Dee, its founder and Chief Designer, brought together her background in the sciences and her experience in the fashion industry, resulting in unique, colorful and well-formulated custom blended nail lacquers.


All in all this is a really cool glitter. It doesn't dry up as flat as the piCture pOlish from yesterday, but one layer of top coat gets rid of all grittiness.  And I love that I didn't have to fish for the diamonds. Verdict: I'm glad that I'm now the proud owner of a Rainbow Honey polish :)

  2. It's a nice colour but there's something about the finish that's not very appealing to me... I like it best with the top coat on :)

    1. Is it the finish of the red or the finish of the glitter that doesn't appeal to you? :)

  3. What a gorgeous red base! And the glitters look beautiful on top! I particularly like the diamond shaped ones. :-)

    1. The diamonds definitely adds to the prettiness. I like that they aren't "too" chunky :)
