It Girl makes the best stamping supplies around so I highly recommend you check out her Etsy shop.

Cupcake Polish Grace

Colores de Carol The Extra Mile – This one is from the January box and the reason why I caved and got the box to begin with. It totally held up to my expectations in person. This is my first Colores de Carol polish, but it certainly won’t be my last!

Mermaid Nail Art Stamping

{Purchased by Me}{Press Sample}

Today’s mani is super exciting because I used a prototype stamping polish from It Girl Nail Art!! It stamped beautifully and well. There is no ETA on these stamping polishes, but stay tuned…for as long as it takes because they are pretty great.

For this mani, I started with two coats of Cupcake Polish Transformation. The mermaid scales design comes from It Girl Nail Art Plate IG108.

Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection

{Purchased by Me}

Today I have the Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection to show you today. This is a collection of spring colors…all of which are a holo finish. And, if anyone knows how to do a holo polish, it is Cupcake Polish!

Cupcake Polish Metamorphosis

This is the only one where the sun was out when I wore it. You can see the amazing holo flare so easily! All six polishes have the same, strong, and gorgeous holo.

Cupcake Polish Unicorn Collection

{Purchased by Me}

When I saw the Cupcake Polish Unicorn Collection, I knew I just had to have it. These are some serious sparkly and gorgeous polishes! My pictures don’t even do them justice! They are so much more sparkly in person – even blinding in the sun! All five polishes are packed with microglitters in a tinted jelly base. The jelly base matches the color of the polish. I only needed two coats for full coverage so these definitely pack a wallop of glitter. The glitter did mess with the brush a little. It would get up there between the bristles and cause the brush to fan out a bit. I needed a little more careful application, but it didn’t affect it too much.
