Another #ManiMonday to Start Your Week

Press Sample

This is going up a little later than planned, but it’s still Monday! So here is another #ManiMonday to start your week! This week I focused on Nick’s favorite candle of the group and the polish that matches it beautifully!

This week we’re focusing on a Diamond Candles in the scent Eucalyptus Lime and Cupcake Polish Magic! Eucalyptus Lime is Nick’s top pick and it’s got an amazing citrus scent and a kick of eucalyptus. It’s incredible to wake up to and if you have allergy issues, the eucalyptus scent really helps with a little clarity. We’re burning it right now and it’s very cheery.

If you missed last week’s feature, Diamond Candles  are large (21 oz) soy candles in a variety of scents to choose from and each one has a ring nestled inside the wax. Once you’ve burned the candle for a bit, you will see the foil pack the ring is in and you can use tweezers or a spoon to take it out of the wax and reveal the ring. The rings are totally random, so you really don’t know what type it will be until you open it.

Each Diamond Candles jar has a gold foil sticker inside and it helps you locate where the foil packet with the ring can be found. I burned my Eucalyptus Lime candle for about 5 hours before I got low enough to get to the ring. The ring you receive might be worth $10 or it might be worth $5,000 – it’s always a surprise!

I got a ring this week that has a yellow stone and a clear stone! The ring matches the candle, so that’s cute.

Cupcake Polish’s featured shade this week is Magic! Magic first debuted in the Unicorn Collection in January of 2016! Magic is a lime green jelly base packed with silver and light green holographic microglitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. It’s super sparkly and super fun!

I’m kind of loving how the candle, ring and polish all fall in line with each other! They are matchy matchy!

Diamond Candles are soy candles, so they burn for a longer period of time than traditional candles. It took about 5 hours of burning before I saw the hints of a foil packet containing my new ring. Then I blew out the candle, grabbed a spoon and went on a treasure hunt to get it out.

It usually takes me about 4-5 hours to burn down to where the ring is located!

Keep in mind, we’re getting closer to the holiday season and you can get an easy jump start on your holiday shopping (plus grab a few goodies for yourself!) by mixing and matching Diamond Candles with a Cupcake Polish and gifting them together.

Diamond Candles are $24.99 and you get a long lasting, pleasantly fragranced soy candle with a surprise ring inside. They come in a variety of scents to please just about anyone on your shopping list. Eucalyptus Lime was featured for this post.

Cupcake Polish is $13.00 for a 15ml bottle and comes in a variety of shades and finishes. Magic was featured in this post.

You can go through both shops and mix and match candles to polishes for all seasons as well.

Cupcake Polish will also be giving away 1 bottle of the featured polish each week. Use the widget below to enter! Must be 18 or older and have a US shipping address! Ends Sunday September 24th at 11:59 PM PST.

Stay tuned next Monday for another Diamond Candles & Cupcake Polish #ManiMonday feature!

I would love to have those candles but I am not able to burn candles due to Oxygen being used in my home. But I can polish and love to do so. Love your reviews. They are very helpfull.

If I could only wear one color of nail polish it would definitely have to be a shade of blue!

Holly September 19, 2017 - 7:27 pm

That’s easy – I would pick blue! I wear blue polishes most of the time now anyway. Thanks for the chance!

Hmm.. If I had to pick one color I’d have to go with blue, but the rest of the cool tones would come in a fast second place. Thanks for sharing the love!

If I could only wear one color family, it would have to be pinks (though blue is a close second).
