Cupcake Polish ~ Blood Hound

Cupcake Polish ~ Blood Hound
Dark wine red/burgundy linear holo with golden shimmer

Blood Hound is from the Modern Vampire collection from late Autumn 2015.

The formula is a bit on the thick side which is unusual for a Cupcake. I usually don’t mind that but I found it incredibly hard to get close to my cuticles without actually painting on the cuticles. I did the best I could though. I used two coats for my mani. The drying time is really good.

Here’s two coats taken with flash:

This is taken in lower lights.

This is way too dark for me to wear on its own so I spiced it up with some stamping. I found a floral motif on a fauxnad stamping plate called JQ-L04 and I stamped with one of my new stamping polishes from El Corazón: First Kiss.

Here’s what my final mani ended up looking like, including a layer of topcoat:

I actually tried to make the stampings different from nail to nail but I failed. I don’t mind much though :)

The stamping helped a lot. Blood Hound is too dark for me and I will probably find her another and more caring home.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: I like the rainbows, but the colour not so much
Buy again: No, it’s too dark for me
