Cupcake Polish ~ Scarlett’s purple and Sasha’s Blue



Cupcake Polish ~ Scarlett’s purple and Sasha’s Blue
The Dog Duo

Today I am going to show you swatches of two Cupcake polishes. They’re both microglitters and they’re both Norway Nails store exclusives.

Here’s a picture that Wenche from Norway Nails took of the set:
 

The reason I’m not just taking a picture of the set myself is that I love the little dachshund behind the polishes! :D

First polish up is Scarlett’s Purple. It’s a purple jelly with purple holographic microglitter. The formula is good; perhaps a little bit on the thick side: Just the way I like it! :) Coverage is good too, I ended up using two coats for these swatches. The drying time is good. The polish dries up slightly gritty because of the microglitter. I applied one layer of topcoat to fix that. If you want your nails completely smooth, you might need two layers of topcoat. That’s not how I roll though!

I had no direct sunshine today, boo. So here’s a picture taken in ordinary daylight. It’s two coats and a layer of topcoat:


This is a great glitter, look at that sparkle! I can’t even imagine how crazy blingy this must be in the sun!


I took a picture with flash just to see if I could simulate a bit of sunshine!


Verdict:
Beautiful, blingy, I love the colour.


The second one of the Dog Duo is Sasha’s Blue. It’s a bright blue (slightly teal) jelly with holographic microglitter.

The formula is even better than Scarlett’s Purple. It’s way easier to apply and it covers just a bit better. I still used two coats and the drying time is equally good. It doesn’t dry up quite as gritty as Scarlett’s Purple, so one layer of topcoat is enough for total smoothness.

Still no sunshine, so here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat in ordinary daylight:


Wow, right? I think it looks amazing!


Here’s a flash picture. It shows off the microglitter, but it wasn’t really necessary to show its true beauty.


Verdict:
Wow, just wow!

Who is Sasha and Scarlett, you might ask. Dogs, obviously - this is the Dog Duo after all.

Let me introduce Wenche's dog Sasha:


And Scarlett when she turned 6 months.


The pictures are both Wenches and she agreed that I could use them in this post :) 
Aren’t they just cute both of them?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Jelly with holo microglitter
Overall impression: I love this duo
Buy again: Yes!
