Cupcake Polish The Luau Collection

Press Sample

Let's start off your week with a collection of 6 gorgeous holographic shimmer polishes from Cupcake Polish. Inspired by luaus and the islands, this collection reminds us to enjoy the rest of the summer! And if that weren't enough, I have a coupon code for you at the end of the post for when you order this collection!


Cupcake Polish The Luau Collection



Before I start, I wanted to mention that I used top coat on ALL of the polishes. These are not your standard holos and have gorgeous shimmer, so the top coat elevates the shimmer without diminishing the holo. 

Sand By Me: 2 coats. I just have to say how much I love this polish, both indoors and out. It's a golden orange color that is just so flattering with a gold and pink shimmer. I love this polish. It's definitely my favorite and if you can only get one, get this one! I have absolutely nothing like it in my stash.

Hula Do You Love?: 2 coats. This red is so vibrant. I love that it's more red-orange than straight red. There's a strong gold shimmer. Again, I don't have a red holo this shade WITH shimmer. The shimmers make these totally special. Make sure you wear a base coat--this polish is very pigmented and did stain my nail beds.

Here Today, Gone to Maui: 2 coats. This is a beautiful shade of grass green, but with holo and shimmer, it's emeralds. It totally reminds me of palm trees on islands. The gold shimmer is beautiful and the holo even freaked out my camera. And a plus, no staining at all.

Lei Me Down: 2 coats. This is a vibrant purple holo with iridescent blue glitter. It's the only one that has chunkier glitter, but it's still smooth. Because of the glitter, it was a bit thick to apply. Next time, I will probably add thinner. I like addition of the glitter.

The Tiki to My Heart: 2 coats. This one is a bright pink, but it is not neon. I compared it with my bottle of It's Not What You Pink and they are very different. This holo also has a subtle blue shimmer to it.

Be More Pacific: 2 coats. This name made me laugh. It is such a perfect ocean blue on your nails. It looks like jewels on my nails!

So what do you think of the Luau Collection? I think the inspiration is spot on! My favorites are Sand by Me, Hula Do You Love, Here Today, Gone to Maui, and Be More Pacific. Yes, I realize that's 4 out of 6! These also go together beautifully for nail art--check back tomorrow at 8:30am!

    1. These are definitely more linear than scattered but the shimmer makes them more unique
