Rainbow Honey Glittering Rapture

It's going to be a quick one tonight, guys.  As I've mentioned a few times, we're moving!  This weekend!  My house isn't packed!  Yay!!  Wait, not yay.  CRAP!  Gah!  Tonight we're going to take a look at Rainbow Honey Glittering Rapture from their holiday collection, which is still available on their site.  Follow Dee and the gang on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news and updates.

Color: Clear base with gold and red hexes and irregularly shaped glitters.
Finish: Glitter Top Coat – glitter in a clear base to be worn as a top coat.
Bottle / Brush: Squat round mini bottles (i.e. Rainbow Honey or Jindie) – the cap is a little awkward to hold because it’s so round but also pretty short.  The wand and brush are short, but application is easy.  I haven’t made it to the bottom of one of these bottles yet, but I do have concerns that the brush won’t be able to scrape up all of the goodness once it gets to the dregs of the bottle.

Opacity: Glitter topcoat – not designed for full opacity.
Glitter Application: Medium – requires the dab method, but spreads evenly.
Consistency: Medium – applies easily with the dab method and doesn’t flood the cuticles.  Unlike many of my other RH polishes, Glittering Rapture has amazing consistency.  It wasn't so thick that I had to add a teaspoon of thinner to make it workable.

Overall Ease of Application: Easy – applies well without pooling, dragging, streaking, or balding.  Spreads evenly and smoothly.
Stampability: Not designed for stamping.
Dry Time: Quick – dry to the touch without smudging in under 3 minutes.  This could be unrealistic, though, as I put this over a Gelish mani, which was already dry.

Overall Thoughts: I'm really pleased with this polish.  It's very sparkly and catches the eye.  I really like the shimmer and the effect that the irregularly shaped glitters give to this polish.  It has more depth than a straight up clear topcoat, which is great in my book.  I only wore it over red, but I imagine that it would look great over a multitude of colors.  If you like the way this guy looks, they're still in stock at Rainbow Honey's store!

Do you have any Rainbow Honeys?  Which is your favorite?
