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.
