Cupcake Polish ~ The
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
I saved my favourite of the three till last: “Awareness: Depression”. It’s grass green glitter with holo
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,
This low light picture reveals the true colours of “Depression”.
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
Overall impression: Great polishes all of them!
Buy again: Yes!
