Guess what time it is? Time for #ManiMonday! So let’s kick it off celebrating #ManiMonday With A Girls Best Friend!

What are a girl’s best friend? Cupcake Polish and Diamond Candles of course! This week we’re focusing on a Diamond Candles in the scent Blueberry Tart and Cupcake Polish New York!

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 Blueberry Tart 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 I received a really beautiful ring with a blood red stone and 4 small diamonds surrounding it (2 on each side)

The Cupcake Polish featured this week is New York! New York is a bright, medium aqua blue linear holographic. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

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. Blueberry Tart was featured for this post.

Cupcake Polish is $13.00 for a 15ml bottle and comes in a variety of shades and finishes. New York 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 1st at 11:59 PM PST.

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

I have a dry marble design on that I did for Polish Con. I used OPI Kyoto Pearl (cuz I liked the pearl base) then dry marbled with Road to Polish Con polishes from week 5 including Spirit of Chicago by Glisten & Glow, Odyssey II by Different Dimension, & Mystic Blue by Cupcake Polish. I will be redoing them tomorrow using one of the new beauties I bought from Polish Con….yet to be determined.

I have a blue radial gradient using polishes my friends mom bought for me while she was in Paris! They are amazing one coat wonders! Then I stamped a swirly heart image from the Pueen Fairytale Lover 01 plate using a holographic blue by Hit The Bottle called Hololulu Blue! It’s probably one of my favorite manis ever! Thanks for the giveaway!

Autumn’s First Kiss by My Stunning Nails; it’s nice-ish, but a little disappointing as I thought it would be far more red or red-orange bright from the swatch photos and it is clearly more russet veering copper, I wish there had been more than one swatch of it;-p

Holly September 27, 2017 - 7:44 pm

I’m wearing Tonic’s Come Wander. Thanks for the opportunity!

Kate K September 28, 2017 - 7:45 pm
