Hi there, my darlings! So, I have A LOT of strong feelings about today's post featuring Cupcake Polish. Today's post is not just about swatches or pretty polishes so much as it's about a journey. 5 years ago, Sara of Cupcake Polish started a new brand and shortly thereafter, she sent out a call for bloggers. Very new to the blogging world myself with just a few months under my belt, I remember answering her call. I still remember her first PR package, with 3 polishes that remain my favorites to this very day. I also remember being so impressed with the quality and sheer blinding holographic beauty of those first polishes--how could a new maker get it so right, so quickly? Over the years, Sara has proved that she's not a fluke or an amateur. She has consistently released beauty after beauty, each one just as gorgeous as the one before. And I've been fortunate to have been along for the ride! So today's post, for me at least, is a celebration of just how proud I am of her and just how full my heart is with our long-standing association. Without further ado, I present you with Cupcake Polish's 5 Year Anniversary Trio...and Sara has truly outdone herself!

Celebrate is described as a "blush pink nail polish with an elegant foiled finish". 2 easy coats, topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten and Glow's Top Coat. I'm usually not a big fan of foils but this one was not only really easy to work with but the results were fabulous, as you can see below!

Diamond is described as a "multi-faceted iridescent topper packed with multicolored iridescent flakies and platinum silver micro flakies". Yes, this beauty is meant to be a topper and you can certainly add a coat on to your favorite creme but I always like to layer toppers to full opacity, just to see how they look. This baby did not disappoint! 4 thin coats, topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten and Glow's Top Coat. The flakies...oh, these flakies! TO DIE FOR!

Now, I also wanted to see how this polish would look with a matte top coat so I threw on 1 coat of Glisten and Glow's Matte Top Coat...and the results? Pretty magical! I totally don't know which finish I like better!

5 Years is described as a "magenta linear holographic nail polish with holographic microglitters and heavy blue shimmer". 2 easy coats, topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten and Glow's Top Coat. Although I had quite the time choosing, this had to be my favorite of the trio. And, let me just tell you, both my roommates were in awe! As pretty as these pics may be, this beauty is even more gorgeous in person with that fantastic blue shift! Head over heels in love!

With flash!

  1. It's so nice to see someone succeed like this. The Indie world is now so huge and it's hard to find a space in it. I love indies and have a big big collection. I'd love Celebrate to have a place in it.

  2. What a lovely tribute, Babi! I’m happy to hear about Sara’s 5 year anniversary, and clearly she’s doing it right. Love this trio, especially Diamond with the shiny topcoat - it reminds me of Mardi Gras. I also have to check out the sale

  3. These colors are so pretty and I love the tribute!

  4. These are absolutely stunning polishes, and what a lovely tribute!

  5. I'm in the mood for bling these days, and Diamond is stunning. Those flakies are everything!

  6. Your swatches are so beautiful <3 I love those flakies.
