In my Vegan Beauty Essentials Box from Vegan Cuts, I received a large sample size of Rainbow Honey nail lacquer in Persephone. It’s a red with lots of sparkle and definitely different than any color I already own. Rainbow Honey is a cruelty free and vegan brand with lots of shades of nail polish.
Claims: “Queen of the underworld and daughter of Demeter, this fiery red radiates with gold, copper, and multichromatic shimmer.”
Ingredients: Ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, succinic acid, alkyd resin, sucrose acetate, isobutyrate, isopropyl, alcohol, di-camphor, stearalkonium, hectorite 2, 4 hihydroxy benzophenone. May contain: silica, calcium, aluminum borosilicate, polyethylene, terephalate, CI 77019, CI 77891, CI 77861, CI 19140, CI 77510, CI 75470, CI 77741, CI 77007, Red #27, fragrance
Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Goes on smoothly. Dries quickly. Does not leave a stain on nails. Relatively easy to remove for a glitter formula. Color is very true to that in the bottle.
The Verdict: To be honest, I wasn’t so sure about this shade at first. I usually gravitate towards pastels and light pinks. This red with gold and copper shimmer just felt so… Bold! However, once I had the polish on I actually really liked it. It went on smoothly, dried fast, and the color was just SO pretty! This polish had so much dimension without being glitter overkill.
After trying Persephone, I am now looking into ordering some of their other polishes. The brand also has a great page on their site with both application and removal tips. I think it’s great that Vegan Cuts included Rainbow Honey in their beauty box subscription and their Vegan Beauty Essentials Box!
