RAINBOW HONEY: FAB Summer Set [Tenda, Costa del Sol, & Schrammi]

Rainbow Honey FAB Summer Set

Happy Tuesday! Whatever that means bahaha. Today I have the Rainbow Honey FAB Summer Set, which is exclusively sold by Fab.com. If you purchase this set they will be full sized versions of the minis in my pictures :] I have swatch, review, and little nail art bits at the end for you after the jump!

This set consists of 3 different colors:




Let's jump into the first swatch:

Rainbow Honey Tenda

Tenda is a grassy green creme polish with micro flecks of gold. Sorry the pictures don't capture the gold (except in the macro lmao), it really is a lot more obvious in real life. I really liked this shade of green though!

I did 2 coats of Tenda, no undies or top coat. I was pleasant surprised that this only took 2 coats. I don't review many cremes from indies so this made me happy. The application was smooth with no issues, and dry time was great.

Schrammi is a darker coral creme polish with the same tiny gold flecks that it's green sister has. This was my favorite color out of the two, I just love how the gold looks in this shade of coral. I can also see this color looking great on many different skin tones, very versatile.

I did 2 coats of Schrammi, no undies or top coat. It had the same great application as the other creme polish in the set. This polish also had a great dry time. No complaints from me!

Next is the glitter polish in the trio:

Costa del Sol is the glitter polish in this FAB set. It is made up of gold hex, bar and gold flakies. The one thing I've always liked about Rainbow Honey's glitter polishes is that one coat is usually good to go!

I did 1 coat of Costa del Sol over both Schrammi and Tenda. No application issues and it dried pretty quickly. After the polish dried and I wore it a few days without top coat, I did not notice any bar glitter sticking up.

I decided to put them all together and see what came about. I was a little hesitant to try a gradient effect with the 2 cremes due to their colors but it came out a lot better than I thought!

As I said above, I was a little afraid to put these 2 colors together. Red-ish and green colors together usually give me the heebie jeebies hahaha but all 3 polishes in the FAB Summer Set play together SO nicely! I did a sponge gradient with Tenda and Schrammi and added a coat of Costa del Sol. I was so happy with the results, I couldn't stop staring at my mani haha.

As you might of saw me post on my Facebook, I was itching hardcore to do some tribal nail art. Tribal nail art is my favorite because there are endless pattern possibilities and I love the mix of designs! I decided to go for the tribal patterns because I thought they would look awesome with the colors of the gradient. Here were my results!

I LLLLLOOOOOVEEEEEEEE. Like, really, freakin, frackin, love this! The colors! The glitter through the pattern! OHMYGAH it's just perfect ya'll! I stared at my gradient because I was so in love with it, imagine how much I stare at this lmfao. I'd subtract 20 minutes out of my day dedicated to staring... just kidding haha but you get the point ;]
