Cupcake Polish Swatch Spam!
*Purchased by Me*
Helloooo! I have some swatch spam for you today! And, all of these colors are from Cupcake Polish! I've had all of these swatched for a while, and haven't gotten around to writing separate posts for them, so I figured that I would compile them all into one post. Let's get to them!
Cupcake Polish Cheers to 3 Years!
Collection: Limited Edition 3-year anniversary polish
Color/Finish: Light pink linear holo with metallic silver flakies.
Formula/Application: Cheers to 3 Years! had a perfect formula! I was almost able to get it opaque in one thick coat, but opted for two, to be safe. Shown are two coats plus glossy top coat.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 hearts! This is one of my new favorite pinks, and it is so dainty and feminine looking!
Availability: Cupcake Polish Cheers to 3 Years! was a limited polish available only during the month of July.
Cupcake Polish Dallas
Collection: American Beauty Collection
Color/Finish: Dallas is a red-orange (more on the red side) base with an intense linear holo.
Formula/Application: Dallas applied super smooth, and was fully opaque in two coats! Shown is with glossy top coat, under a daylight bulb.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 hearts! The holo on Dallas is super intense, and the formula is perfect! It had a quick dry time, and barely any clean-up was needed; perfect for a quick mani!
Availability: Cupcake Polish Dallas is no longer available in her shop.
Cupcake Polish Love Others
Collection: April 2016 Harlow ONE Series: Cupcake Polish One Love Duo
Color/Finish: Love Others is a peach linear holographic.
Formula/Application: Love Others was thin on the first coat, but built up very nicely! I was able to get it opaque in two smooth, easy coats; shown is with glossy top coat, under a daylight bulb.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 hearts! While this may not be the most flattering color for my skin tone (it blended in with my skin a bit, in person), it is an absolutely stunning polish! The formula was on par with all of the other Cupcake Polishes that I own, and it would make a great base for some stamping, or any other type of nail art!
Availability: Cupcake Polish Love Others is no longer available for purchase.
Cupcake Polish Maria
Collection: Cupcake Polish Queen Collection
Color/Finish: Maria is a blue linear holo with green shimmer.
Formula/Application: Maria was another polish that was almost opaque in one coat! However, as usual, I did two for good measure. Shown is with glossy top coat, under a daylight bulb!
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 hearts! This shade of blue is absolutely stunning, and the shimmer adds that little extra oomph that I love so much!
Availability: Cupcake Polish Maria is no longer available in the shop.
Cupcake Polish Unrequited Love
Collection: Color4Nails Exclusive
Color/Finish: Unrequited Love is a burgundy linear holo with berry shimmer and silver flakes.
Formula/Application: Unrequited Love was almost opaque in one coat, but I used two for full opacity. It dried down quickly and smoothly, and did not stain! Shown are two coats plus glossy top coat, under a daylight bulb.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 hearts! I am a sucker for vampy colors, and this dark burgundy is glorious, especially with those silver flakes!
Availability: Cupcake Polish Unrequited Love is available from Color4Nails for $14.00, but it is currently out of stock.
