Good morning to you, good morning to you! My day is beginning, there's so much to do! But let's start this day off right with gorgeous Spring holos from Cupcake Polish! I'm talking about the brand spanking new In Bloom Collection. Maybe you've seen swatches already, maybe you saw my preview on Instagram last night or maybe this is the first time you've heard of the collection! These are all completely gorgeous so let's all do the happy dance that these are almost available. In Bloom is made up of 9 fabulous holos, all with names that make you feel as if you're strolling through a flower garden. In Bloom will be available on 4/17 at 11am CST. They are $13 each or you can pick up the full set for $108 (that discounted price is only available for the first 24 hours). All of my pictures are in direct sunlight, so are you ready for them? I am so forward we march!
Of course I went in rainbow order so up first is A Budding Romance. This is a beautiful red-coral linear holo. I'm very drawn to these reddish shades so it's no surprise this was one of my favorites in the collection. The formula and application were both lovely. Creamy and opaque. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
Back To The Fuchsia is a perfect petal pink linear holo. I actually think this one leans a bit lilac but that was more to my naked eye than the photos. Once again, fantastic formula and dreamy application. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
Here is Bloom Bloom Room. It's another one of my favorites in the collection because I find the color quite unique and interesting. And you know I love orange. It's a sun bleached orange linear holo. Also I love the name. Great formula and application here; creamy opaque and richly colored. I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
Daisy In Love is a nice sunshine yellow linear holo. I feel happy when I look at it. I don't think there is enough love for yellow out there and if you don't have one in your stash yet this would be a good one for you. Like the last few, it's creamy and opaque and covers perfectly in 2 coats. No topcoat used.
Instant Re-Leaf is a really cute name. I'm thinking it has something to do with allergies? Or possibly after sun aloe? While I don't know the meaning behind the name I do know this is a great green linear holo. It's not pastel, but not neon, just a perfectly wearable green. Very Spring-y. Formula and application were stellar. 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
What In Carnation? is a serene aqua linear holo. I have a feeling this will be one of the more popular colors from the collection as everyone wants to feel summery around this time of the year. Summer is so close we can taste the salty beach air! But until then why not sport this perfect color on your tips? I'm a broken record but again, prefect formula and application. I used 2 coats for complete opaqueness and no topcoat.
Plant Parenthood (hardy har har) is a cornflower blue linear holo. I always love this shade of blue, though I feel I have seen it frequently this season. It's one of those colors that is flattering on everyone and is the perfect compliment or contrast to many spring garments. I also think it'll be a great color for the summer. No problems with formula or application. I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
Lilac You Mean It is a real beauty. Soft purple linear holo with a wonderful formula. What more could purple lovers ask for?! This glided on perfectly and was opaque in 2 coats. No topcoat used for the pictures.
Last but not least is KaBloom. This is a dark charcoal grey-black linear holo. I often find myself wanting a nice dark/black holo and this one fits the bill well. It's amazing to look at the rainbows against the dark base color - really shows off how awesome holos are. Formula and application were awesome. 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat. Also apologies for no macro of KaBloom - it was the only one that didn't turn out, maybe I'll have a chance to add one later!
