Moore Swatches: Cupcake Polish – Cacti Trio


Straight out of Dallas, TX, Sara, owner and creator of Cupcake Polish announces the newest trio that will give you all the southwest summertime feels! The Cacti trio features three glorious polishes that are packed with shimmer and intrigue.

These polishes showcase a variety of special effects which makes it even more special! Desert Bloom is a gorgeous thermal polish that transitions between 2 brilliant, summery shades, Prickly Pear is the second ever solar nail polish and Succulent, is a magical teal jelly polish. Whether you are cooling off by the AC or soaking up the summer sun, these babies are magic in a bottle and the true definition of beauty! 

In addition to these three limited edition polishes, Cupcake Polish has teamed up with Ginger Fizz Boutique to create a matching wax melt of the month to go along with this trio!  This month’s wax melt is an agave nectar scent that is amazing!

Please note, these polishes and the wax melt for this month are VERY limited in quantities! All polishes are single-batch, limited editions that have no recipe and will not be re-released after they sell out!


**All swatches are done using Commitment Issues (liquid latex peel off base coat) by Vapid, Top Coat (glossy QDTC) by Glisten & Glow and Matte Topcoat by Sassy Sauce Polish (matte topcoat). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts – Cupcake Polish – Cacti Trio

Overall:  I didn’t receive the wax melt that will be offered with this trio but I have had the utmost privilege of smelling wax melts offered by Ginger Fizz Boutique and they are out-of-this-world exciting. They are long lasting without being overpowering.

I’ve been a fan of Cupcake Polish for years but this trio blew my mind. I don’t think I have ever used a solar polish before and I have to admit, it was really fun. Only thing is I swatch on a not-so-sunny day and therefore used a LED light I had laying around from my days of gel, but it worked all the same as the sun.

And the thermal…#forgetaboutit! It is absolutely stunning and the color combination is a masterpiece and exactly what is needed for the summer.

Formula / Application: For the solar polish, any UV light source should work to charge the transitioning color.  This includes UV gel curing lamps, UV flashlights, or UV lasers.
If you might find the solar polish (Prickly Pear) slightly gritty formula with tricky application, try waiting for the layers to completely dry in between coats to help fix this problem.

Cupcake Polishes are handmade, long-wearing, full coverage, and 5-free.

Ginger Fizz Boutique wax melts are highly fragranced in a soy wax blend and are approximately 1.5oz.

Opacity: swatches shown in 2 coats

Price: Polishes are $13 each and the wax melt will retail for $2.  Trio w/ wax melt with be a discounted price of $35. 

Availability: Monday, June 4th at 8pm CST
