I was watch Back to the Future Part 1 & 2 last night, so this post is pretty fitting. Let’s hop in my time machine and take a ride…
The year is 1983. The hair is big and the clothes are bright. You start to hear whispers… whispers of a new comer… a bad looking gentleman with many talents… you turn on your TV and…
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we are back where it all started with The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross.
To pay tribute to a legend and to make sure you are prepared for fall, Cupcake Polish introduces a Bob Ross inspired collection featuring six gorgeous full-coverage holographic glitter polishes in a fun fall inspired palette. Every polish in this collection is packed with super sparkly holographic micro glitters that are formulated to lay flatter than normal glitter (so the polishes are not very textured when they dry completely!) that remove easily with acetone.
The collection releases on Monday, October 7th at 8:00pm CDT. The polishes will be available individually for $13.00 each. Grab your set here!
Let’s take a look at the collection. All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer – Commitment Issues and Get Your Shine On High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.

Pursue Your Talent
Pursue Your Talent is described as a mohagony brown colored full coverage holo micro glitter polish. Opaque for me in two coats.
I always use a peel off base coat when swatching to limit the amount of acetone that I have to use and to speed up the process so that I can get through multiple polishes in one sitting. Because I normally run the other way when I think of removing microglitter polishes, I decided that a removal test was needed. I used two coats of Beauty Is Everywhere with a sticky base coat and a quick dry top coat on one finger and two coats of Happy Little Accidents with a quick dry top coat on another finger.
Both polishes took a little scrubbing to fully remove and I shredded a cotton pad or two, but it was a relatively quick removal. If I’d had felt on me (gotta make a Joann’s run), It definitely would have gone faster. The tester finger with the base coat all cleaned up slightly faster than the finger without, so another pro in the base coat column.
All in all, I would agree that these are not the want to pull your hair out type of microglitter polish. You will still have to work a bit for removal, but you definitely should break a sweat!
