Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection; Spring 2016

Good evening lovelies!  I wanted to share a second post with you today because I thought you'd want the heads up on this new collection from Cupcake Polish!  It's called the Butterfly Collection and it's all linear holo goodness.  I really like the shades in this 6-piece set, they aren't neon but aren't pastel.  They are the perfect in-between pop of color to help your tips stand out on these sometimes gloomy Spring days.  So let me give you the run down on the deets for this collection.  The launch is TOMORROW (4/24) at 11am CST.  They should retail for about $13, and there is typically a discount promotion for the whole collection that runs for the first 24 hours.  Since I don't have the exact information for the pricing make sure you check the Cupcake Polish Facebook and Instagram pages.  So let's delve in and check out these holos!

Time To Fly is a magenta-pink linear holo.  I'm pretty sure this will be the favorite of the collection.  It's an amazing color, vibrant and saturated and so flattering.  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.

Hatch Of The Day is definitely a pink shade with a slight touch of purple in there.  Maybe it's a vibrant mauve?  Anyways, with a holo effect that strong who's knit-picking the color?  Again, wonderful formula and application.  2 coats plus a layer of topcoat.

Cocoon is a rusty copper linear holo.  In the direct sunlight it does lean a bit more red.  It's a stunning color that reminds me of burning sunsets in the Summer and fallen leaves in the Fall.  So yeah, this baby is going to get year round wear from me!  Formula and application were both stellar.  2 coats for full coverage and I finish with topcoat.

Little Butterfly is an earthy green linear holo that reminds me of freshly rained on plants.  My brain even conjures up the petrichor scent when I look at this shade of green.  Definitely a fresh color.  Formula and application were great!  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.

Transformation is a purple linear holo with a slight blue undertone...maybe that makes it slightly blurple?  It's a nice deep shade that'll surely please those that long for dark shades every season.  Formula and application were top notch.  I only needed 2 coats for full coverage and finished with topcoat.

Last but not least is Metamorphosis, a true blue linear holo.  Yes!  So much yes!  Love the color, love the holo flame, it's all awesome!  This color makes me think of vacation, as most blues do because I think of water and beaches.  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.  Formula and application were aces.
