Rainbow Honey Kitsune

I have the last of Rainbow Honey's new polishes to share with you today and in my opinion, I've saved the best for last: Kitsune! Kitsune is a khaki base (think like China Glaze Classic Camel) with rich gold shimmer, plus red holo, orange and brown glitter. It's definitely one of the most unique polishes I've worn in recent memory. I really, really love this one!

The formula on Kitsune applies very easily and is opaque in two coats. The base is jam packed with glitter but still goes on super smoothly. Unfortunately it rained all day here so I didn't have the benefit of direct sunlight, but hopefully these pictures give you an idea of how amazing the gold shimmer in Kitsune really is. Throw in all that extra glitter on top and you have one awesome polish! Are we all that surprised that my favorite of the Yokai polishes also happens to be the most sparkly of the bunch?

I also want to mention that I love the inspiration behind this collection. Each polish is named for a different Japanese spirit. Kitsune is Japanese for fox and in Japanese folklore, Kitsune have multiple tails--up to nine--to signify their power and wisdom. If you're a child of the 90s like myself, chances are you may already be familiar with Kitsune without even realizing it!

Ninetails from Pokemon, anyone?

If you missed any of the Yokai polishes, you can check out Kawako HERE and Oni HERE. All three polishes will be available for purchase at Rainbow Honey's official website on October 13. They're limited edition so if you like any of them, be sure to make your move before they're gone!

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please see my disclosure policy.


  1. These nails, yes. Pokemon, also yes. I had a binder full of those things in 3rd grade. My brother cried when I got Charizard and he didn't.

    1. Oh man, I had a whole binder of Pokemon cards too--which of course I decorated with my Pokemon Snap stickers you could print out at a Blockbuster kiosk. Oh the 90s...

  2. Wow, you're totally impressing me with these RH polishes. This is an indie I'd definitely consider buying from since they have a strong creme base.

    1. I think you'd really like this collection--nothing TOO glittery. Kawako in particular would probably be right up your alley, but really they're all gorgeous!
