Cupcake Polish: October Sweet Addictions Box
Cupcake's October Sweet Addictions box theme is Think Pink! The featured brands are Smitten Polish and Bear Pawlish, and its host Sara's, Cupcake Polish. Also included in the box is a pretty pink heart shaped pendant which has a chocolately brown backside. It was carefully handmade by Sara's mom and packed in it's own coordinating box.
Cupcake Polish - Fight Like a Girl is a vibrant raspberry holo with holo glitter sprinkled throughout. I am really loving this shade of pink and it's super sparkly rainbow goodness! Two coats and gelous then topcoat and there's still a bit of texture poking around, this can be seen in the macro shot. The formula was a bit thick so I added a few drops of thinner for a more fluid application.
Bear Pawlish - Paws for Ta-Tas is a very pretty nearly neon bubblegum pink holo. Something about this shade makes me feel young and feminine, but with a little bit of a punch because there's just something bright and vibrant about this color! Three thin coats with topcoat to cover vnl. Two thicker coats may also work well.
Smitten - In October, We Wear Pink is a neon pink jelly packed with holo microglitters.
My camera does not photograph neons well, especially pink ones so this is as close as I could get - but this puppy is a bright neon pink with tons of holo sparkle! My camera wanted to shoot this more purpley because it was catching the purple holo in the microglitters! I don't feel like I've done this one justice, it's so much better in person! I wore two easy coats and topcoat. The application was smooth as butter and there was very little to no texture before topcoat. No one does a microglitter quite like Smitten!
The Sweet Addictions box for October will be available on Sunday, September 28th at 11am CDT at Cupcake Polish's online shop.
