Hi everyone! I have a partial review of Cupcake Polish's Las Vegas Showgirl Collection for you today. I got to meet Sara, the creator of Cupcake, when I during my stay in Las Vegas for Cosmo Prof CPNA. She is such an awesome lady and I love her laugh, every time I heard it, it made me want to laugh to. And then there is just laughing all around.
I received these polishes while I there for the convention and I love the concept of blingy and shiny flakes and glitter in holo polishes. You can see the over the top that is Las Vegas showgirl costumery in this collection. Out of the five polish collection, I have four to share, the one that I am missing from my review is Copa Girls, a grape purple linear holographic with the same flakes and glitter that the other four contain. To see what that looks like, check out ThingsILoveattheMoment's review.
Application wise, they are what I have come to expect from Cupcake Polishes. They are on the thick side, not surprising by what goes into these polishes, but not too thick to cause issue with application. They are also opaque, needing only two coats for full coverage for each one. I applied one coat of topcoat and that was good enough for swatching but I think that a double layer of topcoat may help with any dry down of the glitter and flakes, especially if you plan on wearing these for a few days.
The Last Vegas Showgirl Collection will be released Saturday August 1st at 11 am CST in Cupcake Polish's shop.
They will be priced at $13 each. And as with previous Cupcake Polish collection launches, you can purchase the entire set of five at a discounted price of $60 for the first 24 hours. And there is a discount code too! Use the code: COSMOPROF2015 for 10% off your entire order, that code is good until 9/1/15.
Cupcake Polish Bluebell Girls
Teal blue linear holographic with sterling silver flakes and holo micro-glitter
Blue in any shade as a holo is an automatic winner for me. But this shade of blue, DAMN. Those flakes and glitter are working it in the base color and both in and out of direct sunlight, you have a stunning polish.
Cupcake Polish Folies Bergère
Bright pink linear holographic with sterling silver flakes and holo micr-glitter
Considering this a Las Vegas Showgirl inspired collection, I would consider this a Flamingo hot pink color. And it's awesome in the sun.
Cupcake Polish Jubilee
Silver linear holographic with sterling silver flakes and holo micro-glitter
Totally a high impact polish! And my favorite of the four, it's just so SHINY. And holo. Basically all I need in life.
Cupcake Polish Lido de Paris
Gunmetal gray linear holographic with sterling silver flakes and holo micro-glitter
Almost black in coloring but those flames and holo glitter lighten the color. I do like the contrast of those flakes and glitter against the darker base.
