August Rainbow Honey - Large Mystery Bag

Rainbow Honey is a nail polish that is sold mostly online. I believe they have one retailer in the US down in San Diego, CA. In March of this year they started offering mystery bags and they were so popular that they made it a subscription service. Each Rainbow Honey mystery bag will have sneak peaks and preview of new lacquers, unreleased samples of future collections and exciting new products made by the Rainbow Honey Lab! They have two sizes of mystery bag mini and full size. The mini mystery bag is $10 plus shipping which I think is $3.95. The full size  mystery bag is $25 and includes shipping. The difference between the two bags, besides price is size of the products. The mini mystery bag will have the mini size bottles of nail polish and smaller versions of whatever is included in the bag. I debated on which one to get because I actually like the smaller bottle of nail polish. I have so many polishes that I never finish a bottle so the small ones are perfect for me. Then I thought for only $11 more I can get full size versions of everything. Decisions, decisions. Finally I decided on the full size mystery bag.

The good:

Price: $25 is kind of a lot on a subscription but $14 (with shipping) isn't so bad. I like that  they have two different price points.

Love what you got: The have a website full of stuff you can order.

Booklet: The include a booklet with info on the products.

The not so good:

Skip a month: I don't see a skip option

August Rainbow Honey Large Mystery Bag

Contents of the large mystery bag. 

FULL SIZE nail polish in 488nm. Value = $10.00,  part of an upcoming 2015 collection

FULL SIZE nail polish Modern Hearts. Value = $10.00

FULL SIZE Royal Fruits scented top coat. Value = $8.00

12 ml Royal Fruits Rollerball . Value = $12.00

Royal Fruits Cuticle Balm. Value = $5.00

4 oz. Summer Juice body splash. Value - $??

The value of the mystery bag is at least $45.00 not including the body splash which I would guess to be in the $8 range. I was kind of bummed to see the top coat in the bag. I know top coats are useful and this one even smells nice but I like getting the new colors. Speaking of new colors isn't the Modern Hearts on pretty? The blue is nice also but I don't think it's a color I would use for a full mani - unless of course I use the Modern Hearts over it. hmmmm. I love, love, love the summer juice fragrance so I was super excited to see a bottle of it in this months bag. I have a few of their cuticle balms now and honestly I haven't used them yet. I will use them but I'm still using a Julep one I have.

Verdict: Even though the top coat wasn't super exciting I am excited about the others items. It's a little pricey but I like this monthly bag.
