Cupcake Polish: The Olympic Collection, Summer 2016

Good afternoon dears!  I have quite a bit lined up for July so I'm doubling up on posting today.  I'm sure you don't mind, because really, who doesn't like looking at nail polish all the time?  I know I do. Seriously.  I'm always looking.  Anyways, aside from always swooning and being excited for polish I am also pretty damn excited for THE OLYMPICS!!!!!  I will literally disappear and watch hours upon hours of the Olympics.  I get totally sucked in.  I especially love track and field, swimming, water polo and gymnastics.  But I'm sure you know my heart belongs to soccer.  Cupcake Polish wanted to commemorate the 2016 Summer games in Rio by creating a collection of holos and they are awesome!  I love that these holos are gorgeous, bright colors but I also love that they are the colors of the Olympic rings.  The 6-piece holo Olympic Collection will be available on 7/10 at 12pm Central.  Set your alarms so you remember to snatch these vibrant beauties up!  Now let's jump into the swatches.

Yellow yellow, such a lovely sunshiney, happy color!  This is Row Me To The Gold, a perfect yellow linear holo.  I will actually watch rowing this year because one of my college roommates will be competing!  How cool is that?!  Formula and application were both fabulous.  Creamy and opaque and truly, this is such a pretty yellow!  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Not My Vault is an orange linear holo. Of course this is inspired by the track and field event.  Pole vaulting is pretty interesting.  I think I'd be scared to be in the air that high.  Can you imagine how much it would hurt if you fell and missed the mat?  But back to the subject.  Not My Vault had a wonderful formula and application.  I had full coverage in 2 coats.  No topcoat.

One In a Brazil-ion is a nod to the hosting country of the 2016 Summer Olympics.  It's a a red linear holo.  It kind of reminds me of a strawberry-ish color.  I really liked this color with my skin tone.  Formula and application were perfect.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Alright, I love this one because it's green but also because it's the soccer inspired polish.  I'm A Soccer For Green is a pitch green linear holo.  Perfect!  This is a great shade of green.  Formula was creamy and opaque.  Application was like buttah.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

You can probably guess this cool blue is inspired by the water events.  Swimming, water polo, synchronized swimming, diving.  Pool It Together is a blue linear holo that is reminiscent of the deep end of the pool.  This color looks pretty refreshing right about now on these hot Summer days.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

And last but not least is Track Me Down.  Yup you guessed it...running!  Another love of mine (ok really I love all the events).  This is a black linear holo.  I love the rainbow flame.  It's even noticeable  in indoor lighting.  Awesome formula, easy application.  I used 2 coats, no topcoat.
