Aloha! Cupcake Polish has an all new collection that makes me dream of Hawaii!
Releasing August 28th at 12pm CDT is the all new Luau collection by Cupcake Polish. This six piece collection is full of holo, shimmer, and micro flecks.
The names of these polishes are so clever and well thought out. The colors are stunning. The application is great. All in all this is just an amazing set!
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “BE MORE PACIFIC”
“Be More Pacific” is a teal blue holo with micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. This one left my nails with a green tint. I don’t want to actually call it a stain. Maybe just a surface stain. It did come off and you will find out how and when a few shades down.
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “HERE TODAY, GONE TO MAUI”
“Here Today, Gone to Maui” is a medium “grass skirt” green holo with gold micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. This one also left a surface stain on my nails. I am showing the swatches in order of how I swatched. First the teal left my nails green. Then this one left them a bit yellow. Keep reading…
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “HULA DO YOU LOVE?”
“Hula Do You Love?” is an orange leaning red holo with gold micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. This one was the third and final stainer. It left my nails with an orange tint. Not fully stained, but not pretty.
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “LEI ME DOWN”
“Lei Me Down” is a medium purple holo with blue micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. I sincerely thought this one was gonna leave me with nails stained a purple color. However, it did not. Not only did this not stain my nails, but when I removed this shade all of the previous staining came off as well. That is why I didn’t really want to call the other three polishes stainers. Strange…I know. But I couldn’t have made that up if I tried. 😉
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “SAND BY ME”
“Sand By Me” is a dark marigold holo with micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. This color surprised me. I didn’t think I would like it nearly as much as I did.
CUPCAKE POLISH LUAU COLLECTION “THE TIKI TO MY HEART”
“The Tiki to My Heart” is a hot pink holo with micro flecks and shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat. This one is a bit darker in person.
I would like to address the “staining” issue a bit more. I always use a base coat when swatching. I have talked to another swatcher and she had no issues. And the way the purple seemed to remove the tint left from the three previous colors was very odd. I am chalking it up to a body chemistry thing…who knows?! All I know is the staining obviously doesn’t last and I will be proudly and confidently wearing these polishes again.
Thanks for reading!
