Bonitas 2015 Forget Me Not Collection, from L to R: Tinman’s Brew, Mo’ Money, Forget Me Not, Do The Flamingo, Golden Girl, and You’re My Lobster

Hi guys! Today I have a review on the amazing Bonita Color’s winter 2015 collection, Forget Me Not. I am incredibly happy with each and every polish, you just don’t get much better than holos, flakies, and jellies oh my! Especially at this price point! These retail at $1.49 and I believe they are only available at Rite Aids.

I’m going to begin today with Tinman’s Brew. This is a silvery baby blue shimmery polish with silver flakes and some scattered holographic glitter throughout. This one was a little sheer on my and was opaque at 3 coats. It did dry down a tiny bit dull so I topcoated with KB Shimmer’s Clearly On Top. I think I might actually prefer this polish as a topper but it is so interesting and I could totally mistake it for an indie!

Next up is Mo’ Money, a deep shimmer forest green with a teal/blue flash. The flash doesn’t translate too well on to the nail but this polish has the most opaque and easy formula of the collection! This is a 1-2 coater, I did 2 coats here. This is not a dead on dupe for Zoya Honor but they are similar enough tat if you are jonesing after the matte velvet but don’t want to pay $9, this may be a good alternative for you!

Next up is Forget Me Not, the namesake of the collection! This one was an instant favorite for me, completely opaque at 2 coats and the blue flakes and shimmer in this one give it a beautiful inner fire! This one, while not a dead on dupe, reminds me a little of Zoya Yves especially while matte.

Next up is Do The Flamingo, a shimmery pink with flakes and scattered holographic glitter. I wasn’t really in love with this one until I got it on my nails I feel head over heels for it! This one is opaque at 2 coats, shown with topcoat.

Next up is Golden Girl, a gold scattered holographic micro glitter, If you don’t have one of these in your collection it is a must have! Fairly dense, it was opaque on it’s own at 3 coats but would also make a beautiful topper. I wish I had had some natural sunlight to play with this in! I can see this being great for the holidays.

Lastly I have You’re My Lobster (I am not getting these names?!) and this is the polish that initially drew me to this collection. This is a bright true red with an almost jelly consistency plus metallic red glitters. I absolutely love this polish!! You can get away with 2 coats but I think it really benefits from a third coat. The depth is gorgeous, especially matte!

  1. The more I see of Bonita polishes, the more I bemoan the fact that we do not have Rite Aid in Texas. These are amazing offerings considering they are a bargain brand – I wish they’d had some of these up on their website so I could order them lol. Maybe they’ll get added to the core line. 🙂

    BTW – “You’re my lobster” is a Friends reference 🙂

  2. These are all so pretty! I wish we had a rite aid in my town, I want all of these. I think bonita is a totally underrated brand, especially for the price. Mini bonitas I found at Big Lots created my easiest and favorite watermarble ever!
