Cupcake Polish Free Spirit Trio & Secret Ingredient Topper

Hello, again! I have a new trio and topper from Cupcake Polish to share with you today. All 4 polishes are gorgeous! This trio even inspired me to do some art. 

These polishes will be available on 2/11 at 8pm CST.
The Free Spirit trio will be sold individually for the price of $13 each. This trio is Limited Edition and single batch and will not be restocked once sold out. You will not want to miss out on these you guys! The shimmers in these polishes are absolutely stunning. 

Wanderer is a purple nail polish that is packed with a heavy gold to green shifting shimmer and holographic microglitters. I really love the shimmer in this. The gold to green looks great against the purple base. 

The formula for the trio was so easy to work with and very opaque. If you tend to do a heavier first coat, you could probably get away with only one coat but I used 2 coats and a quick drying top coat for my swatches. The glitters in these polishes don’t require much scrubbing to remove but the glitters do tend to stick to your skin. Of course, that’s common with any glitter polish. 

I couldn’t resist doing some stamping over the trio. I was inspired by the names for each of these and decided to go fo a hippie/70’s vibe for each polish in the trio. 

Wild and Free is a berry pink nail polish that has a heavy blue shimmer and holographic microglitters. The pink base and blue shimmer made this polish lean more purple in real life and the combo is a great one! My swatches show 2 coats and a quick drying top coat. 

Day Dream is an aqua nail polish with a heavy pink to blue to gold shifting shimmer and holographic microglitters. Blue polishes are always a win in my book and the shimmer is just wonderful. I used 2 coats and a quick drying top coat for these swatches. 

Secret Ingredient is a new addition to Cupcake’s special effect topper line and will be $10. This polish is not Limited Edition and will be around for the foreseeable future. Secret Ingredient is a special effect topper that combines red to bronze to gold to green shifting Unicorn Pee (better known as UP) sister aurora pigment and a holographic effect that transforms any base color you use it over. 
For my swatches, I used it over 3 different creams. I used 1 coat over black, white and a darker purple. It’s so beautiful!!

Simply gorgeous, right?? Cupcake never fails to amaze me with their beautiful creations! Thank you so much for reading!

Pahlish All Holo’s Eve and Holo-ween Remix

Hello, again! It’s my favorite time of the year- Holo-ween! I look forward to Shannon’s Halloween polishes all year and I’m thrilled to share them with you today. There are 9 polishes all together and they are broken up into 2 mini collections. The first is called Happy Holo-ween Remix and Pahlish has revamped 3 of their original Holo-ween favorites from 2014. Then we have 6 polishes in the All Holo’s Eve collection. These polishes will launch here on 9/23 at 7pm central. They will be available as a preorder from 9/23-9/25 and will then be restocked every Sunday until 10/31. These polishes are LE (limited edition) so they will NOT be listed on the site after Halloween and will not be included in the Black Friday sale so if any of these beauties tickle your fancy, be sure to buy them before that day. Shannon also has some special mystery polishes up her sleeve and I’ll include more info about that at the end of this post. Let’s see these new spooky beauties, ok? Ok!

Happy Holo-ween…
