Rainbow Honey ”The Power of Love” – Swatches and Review – plus a little nail art!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! This morning I participated in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure (which I will talk about in a separate post). For the event I decided to dress up my nails with Rainbow Honey “The Power of Love”. I found it was appropriate in colour, name and description (you’ll see below).

The brush is the typical round brush and it works well.

This polish is described as: Find the courage and strength you need in this shimmery pink base full of holographic glitters and crystal hearts.

See why I mean the description fits the event too? 🙂

I wanted to make sure that it came out as pink as possible so I put 2 coats of The Power of Love over a white base. I then finished it all off with 2 coats of top coat.

This is a beautiful glitter mix in a pink crelly base, and it has some golden flakes too. You can see all the details better in this macro shot.

I wanted to see how this colour build up on its own so on my thumb I did not put a white base. I put 3 coats of The Power of Love followed by 2 coats of top coat.

Here’s a comparison by itself and over a white base. It comes out a bit more pink with the white base.

For the nail art I used a nail art brush to draw the pink ribbon with Be Mine.

I’m extremely happy with how they turned out and they were perfect for the event!

The Power of Love was a limited edition created for BronyCon and it quickly sold out when it was released on Rainbow Honey’s site, but I was able to grab one during Rainbow Honey’s restock in September. Melissa from Claw of Cthulhu told me that they apparently changed the formula for the restock to be thicker. If the first release was thinner than this one then I feel that it would have been too thin. I found mine great to work with given that it’s jammed packed with glitters and flakes.

What do you think? Will you be sporting some pink nails this month?
