Good morning, lovelies! I got these a little late, so I meant to get this posted yesterday, but since there were some shitty things going on in the blogging world, I totally skipped being responsible and joined in on Marathon Monday. I didn't drink sun-up to sun-up (really? Who is awake to do that?), but I enjoyed a large glass of mojitos. Inspired, of course, by getting a reply tweet from possibly the most gorgeous (but married. Boo), man on the planet.
The polishes I was sent of the Mixtape Collection by Rainbow Honey were Control, Fall in Love, and Elevate. I love that these were inspired by those summer songs you just had to make a tape of to have with you all the time! Speaking of, do you guys remember sitting at the radio with your hand on the play/record buttons waiting for your favorite song? I do! So glad that time in history is done with! So, let's see some polish!!!!!!
Control is a neon pink with blue and gold glass flecks. I just absolutely love this polish! You may be a tad confused by the pictures, though. This polish does change quite a bit with different lighting, which could possibly be attributed to the gold it contains. I won't say it's duo chrome or anything like that, but in artificial lighting it can take on the orange tinge that can be associated with neon pink pigments. That aside, I still love this polish. I used three coats here to even it out. The formula was a little thick, and I added some thinner for future applications.
Fall In Love is a little deceiving. The description calls it a crimson with blue glass flecks. I call it pink. Fuchsia. Something that isn't crimson! It definitely does lean red, but I feel like it is for sure still a pink. The formula on this is described as a jelly, but I'm going to call it a crelly. It has a squishy texture that I adore, but it is a little too pigmented for pond/sandwich/syrup manis.

Finally is Elevate. This is such a fun glitter! It contains pink circles and hexes; blue, white and orange hexes; green and yellow circles; and white TRIANGLES! This is the first topper I've seen with triangles in it, though there are many more popping up! I love all the shapes that are coming out! This also has a blue shimmer in it. This applied like a chunky glitter, I had to dab it on. However, I got a good variety of shapes without having to dig too much.
As usual, I am very impressed with the offerings I was sent! I'm really hoping I can check out the rest of the collection!
