Cupcake Polish: Luau Collection, Late Summer 2016

Good evening all!  If you saw my Instagram post earlier today you knew this post was coming!  And I managed to get 2 kids soccer games out of the way, lunch with a friend and now I'm back home to do just what I said...share this totally awesome new collection from Cupcake Polish.  The Luau Collection is a 6-piece collection, vibrant holos with shimmery flecks, inspired by the tropical Hawaiian islands.  I have a very special place in my heart for Hawaii, I love vacationing there and being part of the relaxing island life vibe.  The Luau Collection will be available for purchase on 8/28 at 12pm CDT.  The polishes will be $13 each.  You can save 15% using the code COSMOPROF2016 on your entire order!  That code is good until 9/1.  Let's dive in and check out the polish!

Up first I have The Tiki To My Heart.  It's a vibrant hot pink holo.  It reminds me of Hawaiian flowers.  The formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat.  





Sand By Me is a fabulous marigold shade holo full of pink sparks.  It actually reminds me of the color of the sky as the sun season the islands.  Gorgeous color, one of my favorites, it will be reached for many times this Fall.  Formula and application were both fantastic.  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.  





Here Today, Gone To Maui is a medium toned green with gold sparks.  Hawaii has so many places that are lush and green with vegetation, one of those places is the Road To Hana on Maui.  Palm trees and bushes in abundance.  This vibrant green reminds me of those places.  Formula and application were both wonderful.  I used 2 coats and topcoat.  





Lei Me Down is a beautiful grape purple holo with blue sparks.  Perfect shade of purple, also a color you'd see in the sky during a sunset.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topped it off with topcoat.  





Be More Pacific is a stunning ocean blue-turquoise holo with blue sparks.  It's the color of the perfect, warm ocean that everyone wants to swim in while visiting Hawaii.  Formula and applicant were both dreamy.  2 coats, 1 layer of topcoat.  





Rounding out the collection is Hula Do You Love?, an orange-red holo with gold sparks.  It's got a bit of that lit from within glowy look and it reminds me of slow moving hot lava.  Another of my favorites from the collection.  Alas I do have to warn you - this beauty is a stainer.  My nails were red after removal, even with base coat.  Don't let it deter you.  Just double up on base coat or start with a thin coat of a matching shade.  I used 2 coats and topcoat to finish.
