*Products shown were provided as press samples in exchange for photos and feedback. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

The Galaxy Macaron Collection consists of a fun assortment of six macaron inspired shades with galaxy sparkle! I'll share my overall thoughts on these polishes following my swatches since they all the share the same buttery formula. Along with this beautiful collection, maker Amanda is also bringing back the SPrinkle of the Month for September... but with a new twist! SPrinkles will no longer be limited to stamping polishes alone, as Amanda felt the need to stretch her creative muscles a bit and branch out into more possibilities. This month's SPrinkle is a fun celebration to honor Amanda's birthday, which is on release day, the 12th! The Galaxy Macarons along with September's SPrinkle will release Saturday, September 12th, at 8:00 am PST at shopcuticula.com.

Overall thoughts: Since all the polishes of the Galaxy Macaron Collection have the same wonderful formula, I will summarize my thoughts here. This collection is simply stunning! The beautiful, creamy bases are absolutely jam packed with flakes. The flakes themselves give these polishes such a luxurious and sophisticated feel. Application was a breeze, being super smooth and needing little to no cleanup. They also have ideal opacity, only needed 2 coats for full coverage. Upon first impressions of the bottles alone, my jaw was on the floor! I absolutely fell in love these immediately! It's just such a cohesive group of shades. Now, I'm not typically a pink kind of person, but "Star-casm" turned out to be my personal favorite of the group, followed closely by "Now or Nova." But, having said that, they are all just so classy! You really can't go wrong with any of them!

September's SPrinkle of the Month

"Fin-fetti Cake"

An aqua mint crelly base with metallic micro flakes in rose gold, aqua, blue, purple, and red. The name and inspiration are a fun play on fun-fetti cake and mermaids! Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Limitless QDTC and Cloud Cover matte top coat.

Thoughts: What a sweet birthday polish! The minty-teal base definitely gives me retro vibes, making me think of '50s vintage appliances. Love it! It applied very nice and easily with a very nice distribution of the flakes. If you pick this one up, be sure to drop Amanda a 'Happy Birthday' in your order comments! 😉

Again, the Galaxy Macaron Collection along with September's SPrinkle will release Saturday, September 12th, at 8:00 am PST at shopcuticula.com.
