Cupcake Polish - Radioactive Collection

Well hello there!

As you have probably noticed, I had an extended break from nail polishing last month.  It really wasn't planned or intended but needed.  But I am back to share with you a new collection from Cupcake Polish that released today!  I hope to bring you even more collection reviews and nail art to round out the summer.  The Radioactive Collection consists of six new shades with flakies and holo and bright colors to end the summer on a high note.  Let's take a look!

Gamma - A bright, hot pink jelly that is packed with blue/purple shifting flakies and blue shimmer.  Holy moly!  This baby is bright.  The blueish shimmers and flakies really pop against the bright pink background.  The formula is on the thick side but covers well enough for me in two coats.  If you have longer nails then you may like a third.  That pretty much goes for all of the polishes in this collection.

Fallout - A teal based multichrome with slight metallic finish and blue shimmer.  This is a strong shifting multichrome which still has an overall soft effect on the nail.  The main color is teal but it will shift from teal to green to blue to magenta.  Again, slightly thicker formula but two coats covers the nail completely.  My first two photos are under a single direct light while my last macro is under two light sources to show off the shift better.

Nuclear - A deep teal/jade jelly with warm shifting shimmer and shifting microglitters.  I just love coppery colors paired with deeper greens and teals.  The contrast of the warm toned shimmer/glitters with the cooler toned teal base is always appreciated.  The formula is a little thicker and the jelly base makes it a little sheer.  I was happy with two coats (as I am showing you here) but many would prefer a third coat.

Half Life - A deep but bright blue jelly packed with green/teal shifting flakies and green shimmer.  Bright blues like these are fun to wear year round.  The color comb of base and flakies is similar to a shimmering sea.  Again, thicker formula here but I felt that two coats was just fine for my short nails.

 Atomic - A deep, warm toned purple jelly packed with gold/green/red shifting flakies.  Oh my...this is so cool.  I am sure this shade will be the hit.  The flakies just jump right out of the nail against that deep purple base.  It has such depth on its own with a glossy top coat but add a matte top coat and watch those flakies shine.  This is two coats with both glossy and matte top coats here.  The formula is also slightly thick.

Beta - A charcoal grey linear holo with a rainbow of iridescent flakies.  You have to know that I am in love with this shade.  Grey polish is my jam.  Plus some flakies and holo!  This covers well in two coats but still had a slightly thicker formula.  The flakies are visible in real life against that super holo backdrop.

What do you think of this collection?  I am digging the bright pink and the grey holo for sure.  But that purple with the matte top coat is pretty spectacular, too.  Which is your fave?  The Radioactive Collection launched today.  Each shade is $13 each from the Cupcake Polish site.  Go grab your faves today!
