Cupcake Polish ~ The Awareness Trio

Cupcake Polish ~ The Awareness Trio
Animal Rights, Mental Health and Depression

Today I am going to show you swatches of three Cupcake polishes. They’re all microglitters and they’re all Norway Nails store exclusives. I’m going to show you three pics of each polish: A daylight picture, a picture taken in the sun, and a picture taken in lower lights.

But first, let me show you what this trio is about:

The first one I’m going to show you is “Awareness: Animal Rights”. It’s described as hot orange with a lot of holo microglitter. That description is spot on, it’s hot orange for sure!

The formula is good and the polish is easy to apply. It took two easy and fast drying coats to achieve full opacity. No underwear was needed.

Here’s what it looks like in ordinary daylight. It’s amazing!!

The sunshine made the holo glitter go crazy. I love bling like this!

The low light picture shows the colour of the polish more. I dig it!

The second polish is “Awareness: Mental Health”. It’s a lime green polish packed with hologlitter. Lovely!

The formula is a bit more of a diva than “Animal Rights”. It is more prone to bald patches, and I needed three coats to make sure the nail didn’t peak through. Drying time is good.

The daylight picture shows that the microglitter demands to sparkle!

Here’s the sunshine picture:

Again: The low light picture reveals the true colour of “Mental Health”.

I consider to layer this next time, mostly to save the precious drops of polish :D

I saved my favourite of the three till last: “Awareness: Depression”. It’s grass green glitter with holo microglitter.

The formula is just like “Animal Rights”, so two coats is what it took to get rid of all visible nail line. Good drying time too!

This one is just as sparkly as its sisters; here’s the daylight picture to prove it:

The sunshine picture is here. The sparkles made my camera go crazy, haha!

This low light picture reveals the true colours of “Depression”.

General verdict:
These are all great glitters. The formula is good – I don’t know why one of them has a different formula, but oh well. It is what it is *shrugs*
The sparkliness in this trio is amazing, and it’s also quite remarkable how different they look in different lightings. I love all three of them, but the grass green “Depression” is my favourite, both colour- and formula wise.

Number of coats: 2 (and 3)
Drying time: Good
Finish: Jelly with holo microglitter
Overall impression: Great polishes all of them!
Buy again: Yes!

  1. I was tempted to buy it, but I was afraid the greens would be a bit too yellow based for my liking, but Depression is really pretty.
    The orange looks like gold, but if you say it is orange, I believe you LOL
