Good morning lovely readers! This post makes me happy. These Cupcake Polishes are so bright and fun and happy and they make me smile. They also make me yearn for more of these fantastic bright neon colors! It also makes me wonder what Sarah has up her sleeve for Fall and Halloween colors. Several of the Best Summer Ever and American Beauty collections are available in the shop right now. The Cupcake Polish holos are $13.00 each. So take a gander at these 2 and mosey on over and see if anything grabs your eye!
Itsy Bitsy Teeny Bikini from the Best Summer Ever collection is a neon yellow linear holographic polish. This baby is bright! Get out your sunglasses! I totally love this color! Itsy Bitsy Teeny Bikini has a fantastic formula and application. I used 3 coats for full coverage. It did dry a bit dull but 1 layer of topcoat shined things up perfectly!
New York from the American Beauty collection is a turquoise blue linear holo. New York is a beautiful shade of blue and has a nice strong holo flare. There is a warning on the site that this could possibly stain because it's highly pigmented. I followed my regular routine with 1 layer of base coat and had no problems. New York had a wonderful formula and applied like butter. I used 2 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.
I thought I'd share a little nail art I did using both Itsy Bitsy Teeny Bikini and New York together! For my middle "art" nails I painted each nail halfway with one color then then other. Before the polish dried I drew little swirls by dragging a toothpick through the wet polish. If you want to see more needle marble art I'd suggest checking out Pointless Cafe - Sheila is a master of the art! So I used about 2 coats of each color, and topped with topcoat after using the toothpick.
