This post is all about Cupcake Polish and their newest collection – Holiday Magic!
This collection consists of six insanely holographic pastel shades with added holographic micro glitter and slight metallic shimmer. Holiday Magic is set to release tonight, 12/1, at 8PM central!
Before we get into the swatches, I’m going to change things up a little bit and talk about the formulas first as they were very consistent throughout the entire collection (and I don’t want to sound like a broken record haha!). Oh and by consistent, I mean totally freaking awesome! These polishes are slightly thinner than previous Cupcake Polishes that I’ve used but still cover just as well! They are all extremely easy to control and I barely had to do any clean up! Dry time and leveling is amazing so swatching these were a breeze! Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s take a look at the individual shades. ❤
All swatches were taken indoors under a combination of Cree daylight and LED bulbs using a Samsung NX300 camera.
First up is Cheer – a pink toned lavender linear holo with holographic micro glitter and metallic silver shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. This is such a pretty purple shade! The pink undertone gives it a warmth that works very well with my skin tone. I love the added metallic silver shimmer as it gives this polish a gorgeous sheen that’s glows in indirect lighting! And of course, the holographic elements are awesome!
This polish cheers me right up! 😀
Jingle is a pastel lime green linear holo with added holographic micro glitter and metallic gold shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. I was really surprised at how great the coverage is in this polish. Even though this polish isn’t your typical lime green shade, it’s still pretty bright which I’m totally loving! I think this shade is so fun!
So much holo! I LOVE IT!
Joy is a medium blue linear holo with added holographic micro glitter and metallic silver shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. This polish is a little sheerer than the others so you may need a third coat depending on how you apply your first coat. The added silver shimmer gives this polish an icy feel that is perfect for the winter season!
Oh my!! ❤
Merry is a dusty pink linear holo with added holographic micro glitter and metallic silvery pink shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. My friends, you are looking at one of the most intense pink linear holo polishes that I have ever seen!! Now I’m not the biggest fan of pink polishes but this one has me jumping for all kinds of joy! There’s just so much holo EVERYWHEREEEEE!
I just can’t with all the holo that’s packed into this polish!
YES. THIS IS REAL LIFE…!!!
Noel is a wonderful turquoise linear holo with added holographic micro glitter and metallic blue-green shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. I looooove turquoise so naturally I looooove this polish! This polish is very vivid yet still great to rock during the holiday season. It’s tough picking an absolute favorite from this collection but I think this is it! It just makes me so happy!
Last up is Peace – a pastel blurple linear holo with added holographic micro glitter and metallic silver shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. There’s something about the cool tone of this polish that makes this one of the prettiest blurple polishes that I own! This is another shade where the added metallic silver shimmer gives it an icy feel.

While Holiday Magic is not your traditional holiday collection, I am totally loving it! I think Cupcake Polish knocked it out of the park! The soft pastel color scheme is still very festive and the added metallic shimmers give each polish a glow that is magical. The holo is very prominent in each shade as are the added holographic micro glitters. Formulas are basically perfect and all were opaque in two super easy coats!
My personal picks are Noel and Joy. If you’re a pink lover, you NEED Merry. If you’re a purple lover, you NEED Peace. 😛
As stated above, this collection releases tonight, 12/1, at 8PM central and will be available here. Each polish will be priced at $13 with the full collection being $72 for the first 24 hours ($1 off each polish).
