Oh my goodness you guys – it’s my final ManiMonday with Cupcake Polish and Diamond Candles! This was a fun series I did for the month of September that myself, my boyfriend and my son got in on. For the final Mani Monday – I saved Jacob’s favorites! You saw my favorites in week 1, Nick’s in week 2, and while we enjoyed week 3, it just didn’t hit “favorite status”… but week 4 is all about my son!

For week 4 – we have Diamond Candles in the scent Apple Slice and Cupcake Polish Plumpy!

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 Apple Slice 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!

This week’s ring was a pretty amethyst colored stone in a higher setting surrounded by clear gems. It’s actually one of my favorite rings from the series.

The Cupcake Polish featured this week is Plumpy! Plumpy debuted in the Cupcake Polish Store with the Candy Land Collection earlier this year! Plumpy is a grass green jelly base packed with silver holographic microglitter.

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. Apple Slice was featured for this post.

Cupcake Polish is $13.00 for a 15ml bottle and comes in a variety of shades and finishes. Plumpy 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 October 8th at 11:59 PM PST.

Thank you so much for celebrating #ManiMonday with me for the last month! And thank you so much to Cupcake Polish & Diamond Candles for facilitating this fun series!

    “Poor Old fool,” thought the well-dressed gentleman as he watched an old man fish in a puddle outside a pub. So he invited the old man inside for a drink. As they sipped their whiskeys, the gentleman thought he’d humor the old man and asked, “So how many have you caught today?”

    The old man replied, “You’re the eighth.”

    Three priests were in a railroad station on their way home to Pittsburgh. Behind the ticket counter was a very sexy, shapely, well endowed woman wearing a very tight, skimpy sweater. She made the three priests very nervous, so they drew straws to determine who would get the tickets.

    The first priest approached the window. “Young lady, I would like three pickets to titsburg.”

    He completely lost his composure and fled.

    The second priest goes to the window. “Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nipples and dimes.”

    Mortified, he too fled.

    “Morons….” the third priest mutters and moves to the window. “Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nickels and dimes. And, if you insist on dressing like that, when you get to the pearly gates, St. Finger’s going to shake his Peter at you.”
