The Luau Collection by Cupcake Polish

Press Sample*

Today I'll show you the awesome Luau Collection by Cupcake Polish, releasing August 28th at 12pm CDT for 13$ each on cupcakepolish.bigcartel.com. There are 6 shades with lovely names and a loooot of holo :D


 Let's start with the swatches!

This is "Sand By Me", an orange holo with pink micro flecks and shimmer. I used two coats with a glossy top coat.




"Hula Do You Love?", a red holo with gold micro flecks and shimmer. Shown here are two coats with a glossy top coat. This one unfortunately stained my nails, but with a little bit of buffering, the stain was gone ;) I used a peel-off base and a regular base coat but that didn't help, so take care of this one. It's not said that if this beauty stained my nails, it will stain yours as well. It all depends on the chemistry of your nails.


"The Tiki To My Heart", a barbie pink holo with micro flecks and shimmer. This is one coat with a glossy top coat.



"Lei Me Down", a purple holo with blue flecks and shimmer. This is one coat with a glossy top coat.




"Be More Pacific",  a bright teal holo with violet micro flecks and shimmer. Shown here are two coat with a glossy top coat.




"Here Today, Gone To Maui", a medium green holo with gold micro flecks and shimmer. This is one coat with a glossy top coat.




This collection is great, the vivid colors blew my mind! And of course, "Be More Pacific" is my favorite ;)

What do you think about this collection?

The Rio Rio Collection by Kinetics

Press Sample*

As you might know already, I'm not that crazy about creme polishes, but you still need them in case you need something less sparkly and more delicate or just for nailart purpose. 
But the following creme polishes just blew my mind with their quality!

Today I'll show you the Rio Rio Collection by Kinetics based in Latvia. 12 vibrant and summery shades inspired by this year's host of the Olympic Summer Games. They are gel-like and dry without any lamp, but there's also a real gel-version of them :) they can last up to 10 days as well, but I didn't test on that cause it would take me ages to swatch them all :D 
Let's start with the swatches!


This is "Under My Feather", a nice peach shade opaque in two coats. Shown here without top coat.



"Think Samba", a vivid orange. These are two thin coats without top coat.


"King Of Red", a bright orange-leaning red. This is one coat (!!!) without top coat.



"One Night Girl", a deep red. This is one coat without top coat as well!



"Bossa Nova", a medium rose. Shown in two coats with top coat.



"Lost In Copacabana",  a rose-leaning lilac. These are two coats with top coat.



"Parrot In The Bar", a bright blue-toned pink. This is one coat without top coat.



"Dream High", a deep plum. These are two coats without top coat.



"Graffiti Legal", a vivid mid-blue. This is one coat with top coat.



"Rio Rio", a nice turquoise shown in two coats without top coat.



"Sambadrome", a bright green reminding me of Granny Smith apples :D These are two thin coats without top coat.



"Guanabara Bay Girl", a very dark, almost black green. These are two coats with top coat.


How do you like them? :)
