Cupcake Polish Sweet Addictions Box: October Edition

Good evening, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well, and you have been having a wonderful week thus far. For tonight's post, I wanted to share the new Sweet Addictions Box for the month of October. For those of you that are not familiar with this box, it is a monthly box that is coordinated by the lovely Sara of Cupcake Polish. Each month, the box is given a theme and contains an exclusive to the box Cupcake Polish nail polish in addition to polishes and products from two other independent brands. The other indies are guest brands that rotate into the box at any given point. The theme for October's box is Think Pink to raise awareness for breast cancer. Let's check out what is in the new box!
As expected with this theme, everything is pink and definitely gorgeous!

Cupcake Polish
Fight Like a Girl
Indoor Lighting
Sunlight
As if a lovely fuchsia base wasn't enough, Fight Like a Girl has additional holo microglitters that really make this polish sparkle. This is one stunning polish! It applied very easily with two smooth coats. It dries a little unevenly because of the microglitters, but it smooths out nicely with a coat of topcoat. I'm crazy about this polish, and I am glad to see it in the box!

Bear Pawlish
Paws For Ta-Tas
Indoor Lighting
Sunlight
Paws For Ta-Tas is an intense neon pink holographic polish, and it is very lovely. This is my first experience with Bear Pawlish, and I am quite pleased with the formula of this polish. It applied very easily with two smooth coats, and the colour is amazing! The name is also really cute and makes me giggle.

Smitten Polish
In October, We Wear Pink
Indoor Lighting
Sunlight
In October, We Wear Pink is a beautiful sparkly bright pink microglitter polish. This shade of pink makes me think of strawberry candy, and I am definitely loving this polish too! The formula was nice, and I used two coats of this polish. I then topped my nails off with HK Girl topcoat to smooth them out. It's another fabulous addition to the box!

Heart Charm
This month's box comes with the cutest heart charm, measuring slightly under 3cm tall. This charm was actually made by Sara's mother for this box, and I am honored to now have my own heart charm. I had the pleasure of meeting Sara's mom (and the talented Sara as well!) while attending Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas this summer, and she is so sweet! I think I'm going to pick up a satin cord to wear with it as a necklace. Now to decide if I want more pink...

The October Sweet Addiction's Box is every pink lover's dream come true! Even though each polish shares the same colour, they all have their own unique spin to them that makes them look very different from each other. All the polishes had wonderful formulas, and the heart charm is simply adorable!

The October Think Pink Box is scheduled to launch this Sunday, September 28th at 11AM CST at the Cupcake Polish website. A blanket donation of $250 will be made this month for breast cancer awareness, regardless of how many boxes sell. It truly is a fabulous box, and I suspect it is going to sell out quickly. Be sure to mark your calendars so you don't miss out!

Do these polishes inspire your pink manicures for October? I'd love to hear what you're planning!

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

  1. I'm usually not a fan of the color pink, but these look so amazing! Makes me want to add to my Pink if You Love Me (my only pink holo so far). Really love the Bear Pawlish one. New indie to look into :)

    1. A year ago (maybe a little more), you never would have seen me wear pink. Now I love them as long as they aren't too pastel.

  2. I'm the host of a theme week called United In Pink that will run 20-26th of October. This box would be perfect for that so I will probably buy it.
