Rainbow Connection is from the 2011 Muppets collection which was released for the Christmas Holidays. The collection has plenty of bling for party nails and I adore it! I have most of the polishes from this collection.
I think Rainbow Connection was probably the most sought after due to its multicoloured glitter particles. I did not rush and buy it when the collection first launched in October 2011 as I already have Happy Birthday by Deborah Lippman which is very similar. By November 2011 I cracked. I tried to pick up a bottle whilst shopping in Selfridges London, they had the whole Muppets collection….except for RC- as they were all gone! At this point they had been on sale for just a month and a lot of salons had sold out. In a slight panic I ordered one online straight away.
RC has small, round glitter and larger hexagon glitter in a clear base. The colours in the polish are silver, gold, green, light blue, red, magenta and orange. Due to the clear base coat - to get full coverage from the polish you really do need 3-4 coats. But this glitter also looks fantastic with 1 - 2 coats over a solid colour. I have seen it done with both Black and White and it looks fantastic. I have tried it myself over pinks in the summer for a rainbow candy style look. Both OPI Shorts Story and OPI Got a date to-knight work well for this. I have also used RC on my tips for a crazy French manicure.
Application can be a little difficult- the glitter sticks together and does not always cover the nail evenly. So you need a little bit of time to apply this polish - it is worth it though.
As with all glitters RC is brittle and therefore prone to chipping, but this is not a problem for me as it is easy to patch up. I just carry the bottle in my hand bag just in case. If you like to wear polish for a few days and can not be bothered to do this then this may not be for you.
And when you actually want to remove it - it take ages!
I have scored this one a 5 as it is a Rainbow-tastic delight and can be worn in variety of different ways.
Yes I would buy it again (if it can still be found) I think there are still bottles out there - but maybe not for much longer.
