Cupcake Polish Holiday 2014

Good morning out there in Black Friday land!  Are you up, hitting the sales?  Or are you in your warm, cozy bed avoiding the crazy crowds and enjoying a nice, light breakfast after the biggest meal of the year?  I am on the road to a weekend trip to the snow so yup, I am not partaking in the physical Black Friday madness.  But that has nothing to do with this post.  THIS post is about the upcoming Cupcake Polish Holiday 2014 collection!  It's a total jaw dropper!  Brights, jewel tones, linear holo, shimmer, flakies...so much amazing in one collection!  The Cupcake Polish Holidy 2014 Collection will be available on 12/1 at 6pm Central.  So let's take a break from perusing the clothing and shoe racks, grab your Starbucks Peppermint Mocha with whipped cream and have a seat for this picture heavy post!

Look Who's Stocking Now is a gorgeous and unexpected bright shade for the season!  Look Who's Stocking Now is a "teal linear holo with gold and teal shimmer."  Absolutely.  In.  Love.  Aside form the fabulous color, the formula and application were both equally stupendous!  I used 2 coats of Look Who's Stocking Now and 1 layer of topcoat.

Menorah-ty Opinion is another completely fantastic blue, but a "cobalt blue linear holo with blue and gold micro glitters and a ton of gold flakies."  It's unique and the flakies do not get lost in the holo, which I love.  This was another top notch formula and application.  Zero issues to report.  I reached full coverage in 2 coats of Menorah-ty Opinion and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

Deck The Malls is real stunner!  This is a "green holographic micro glitter polish."  Deck The Malls is bling and sparkly and gorgeous.  It's got a perfect emerald shade - actually it reminds me of Oz from The Wizard Of Oz!  Formula and application were both great.  I would recommend letting each layer dry completely before adding the next.  I used 2 coats of Deck The Malls and 1 layer of topcoat.  It did dry a bit gritty so I'd also suggest a second layer of thick topcoat for a smooth to the touch finish or skip the topcoat for a textured finish).

Ornamental My Dear...what can I say here?  I really loved each of the polishes in this collection, but THIS is my favorite.  It's a "silver linear holographic polish loaded with gold flakies and micro glitter.  This polish is designed to be worn either as a topper or alone."  I went the alone route and am so pleased with how it looks!  Ornamental My Dear had a wonderful formula and application.  I used 3 coats of Ornamental My Dear for full coverage and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

Just Sleighing Around is another stunner here!  It's a "creamy red linear holographic polish."  The real kicker here is that this is totally a 1 coater.  But you know I have OCD about 1 coat so I had to add a light 2nd, totally unnecessary.  Formula was creamy and smooth and applied like buttah.  Again, I used 2 coats of Just Sleighing Around for full coverage and no topcoat.

Yule Be Missing Me round out this holiday set.  It's a "rich purple linear holographic polish."  This is one of those juicy, vibrant shades of purple that I really enjoy looking at on my nails.  And would you just look at that flame?  It's phenomenal!  The formula was great and it applied perfectly.  I used 2 coats of Yule Be Missing Me and no topcoat.
