Cupcake Polish Falling Back in Time Collection Swatches and Review

Good evening, dear readers! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you might have already seen the sneak peek photos I have shared of polishes from the new Cupcake Polish Falling Back in Time Collection. The gorgeous 6-piece collection is set to launch this upcoming Sunday, and trust me, dear readers, you're going to want them all! I usually have a few top picks from polish collections, but each one of these are so beautiful, I just love them all. I hope you're ready for a picture-heavy post because I have A LOT of photos to share with you! Let's do this!

Next Taupe Model

Bonus Cupcake Photo!
Next Taupe Model is a lovely medium purple polish with fine copper microflakes. I love the added complexity of the copper! The formula is also really nice and creamy. I used two coats plus top coat in these photos, but if you tend to paint with a heavier hand, you might find you only need one coat for opacity.

Rusting Over a Boy
Indoor Lighting
Sunlight
Bonus Cupcake Photo
Rusting Over a Boy is another fabulous shade in this collection, and definitely the colour that I think of when I think fall. This rust-coloured holo is packed with gold microflakes and is gorgeous! The formula was perfect here as well, and I used two coats plus top coats for this photos. This one can also be a single coater if you tend to use thicker coats.

Too Haute To Handle
Indoor Lighting
Sunlight
Bonus Cupcake Photo
A golden light copper shade, Too Haute To Handle is the perfect not-quite-nude shade. The base has added copper and gold microflakes that add a little extra sparkle to the mix. The formula was perfect on this one as well! I used two coats plus top coat, but you might be able to get away with a single coat of Too Haute To Handle.

Neither Here Noir There

Neither Here Noir There is Next Taupe Model's darker more mysterious cousin. While Next Taupe Model is more of a red leaning purple, Neither Here Noir There leans a little blue (although it is definitely a purple). It also contains gorgeous glowing purple microflakes for an extra touch of brightness. Neither Here Noir There applies nicely as well, and while I used two coats plus top coat, you might only need one coat if you tend to use thicker coats.

As Good As Rose Gold
Indoor Lighting

As Good As Rose Gold is the most complex polish in this collection. The base is actually clear, and the polish gets the colour from ultrafine holographic pink glitters. There is an assortment of pink glitters in shades and sizes, and it is completed with light gold microflakes. I can't quite decide if the shade works on me, but it is so pretty I don't even care! It applies nice and evenly, and I used two coats plus top coat for these photos. You will need the second coat for this one, and it does dry to a slightly gritty texture. Top coat smooths it out very easily if you refer smoother nails.

Remembering Blue
Indoors
Sunlight
Unfortunately I have no bonus cupcake photos with this beauty. After being taunted with delicious cupcakes, they just HAD to get eaten!

Remembering Blue is a lovely light icy blue holographic polish with golden microflakes and glowing blue sparkle. I was a little worried this one would be too cool against my skintone, but the microflakes warm it up just enough that it works but still has the icy blue look I love. Neither too thick or too thin, Remembering Blue applied easily for me. I used two coats plus top coat for these photos, but again, if you tend to paint with thicker coats, you might find that one is enough for you.

I am so excited about all the colours in this collection! Every polish has a beautiful little twist to make it fun and intertesting, and this is arguably my favorite collection from Cupcake Polish!

The Falling Back in Time is scheduled to launch this Sunday, September 7th at 11am CST on the Cupcake Polish website here. Each bottle retails for $13, and you are going to want them all!

Can you pick a favorite polish from this collection? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful night!
XO!
