Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hi everyone! I have a new collection from Cupcake Polish to share with you today. These six polishes make up her upcoming Butterfly Collection. 

Formula wise, it's very much what I have come to expect from Cupcake Polish. The formula is one the thick side, which I find easy to work with and will result in opaque coverage. I applied two coats for each of the polishes, as well as my standard layer of topcoat. I love the vibrancy of the colors offered and how well they play off of each other. Removal is easy peasy with any sort of acetone or non-acetone, you will not need to break out a easy removal base coat for these polishes.

I took my photos under two different light sources. The first two pics will give you a feel of how accurate the colors are. The third photo is not a flash photo but under a LED lamp and while it does wash out the color of the polish, will give you an idea of the density of the holo flame. 

The Butterfly Collection will be released Sunday, April 24th at 11 am CST in Cupcake Polish's shop

I do not have exact pricing but I expect these to be what previously released Cupcake Polish's are priced at, which is $13 for each full size bottle. And Cupcake does usually have a discounted promotional price for the full set during the first 24 hours of sale, check Cupcake Polish's social media links at the end of the post for that information.

Cupcake Polish Cocoon 
Two coats
Rusty orange linear holographic with golden shimmer
My photos make this look just a tad more red in tone when in person, this is very much a rusty orange. It's my own personal favorite of the collection as there aren't nearly as many orange holos out there as there should be and this is pretty darn awesome.

Cupcake Polish Hatch of the Day
Two coats
Rose pink linear holographic with golden shimmer
This is a bit softer in coloring compared to the other pink in this collection but it also has the highest density holo flame out of the six. It is super crazy holo under direct light.

Cupcake Polish Little Butterfly
Two coats
Emerald green linear holographic with golden shimmer
Wow, this is one heck of a green color. Green is not something I wear too often but I actually have this on today, which happens to be April 22nd, Earth Day, and I am feeling all sorts of fresh.

Cupcake Polish Metamorphosis
Two coats
Deep denim blue linear holographic with golden shimmer
Blue holo polishes never disappoint and this one is wonderful. It's not quite cobalt but still a deep satisfying blue shade that you will want to grab up.

Cupcake Polish Time to Fly
Two coats
Orchid pink linear holographic with golden shimmer
Practically glows in the bottle and on the nail the color is simply fantastic.

Cupcake Polish Transformation
Two coats
Blue toned purple linear holographic with gold shimmer
One of those blue/purple wonders that never quite photograph accurately. It looks a bit more purple in the bottle, especially when placed next to Metamorphosis.
