JulieG Cupcakes and Castles

We have all done it. We've bought polishes for very silly reasons. One of these reasons usually pertains to the name. The name is just too darn cute or funny we can't pass it up. This is how I felt about this JulieG polish. The color did appeal to me, but the name was the selling point!

Cupcakes and Castles

Cupcakes and Castles is a sheer baby pink with a subtle aqua microshimmer.

Seriously? How could I not have a polish called Cupcakes and Castles? The name itself evokes happy rainbows, clouds, sparkles, and fuzzy panda bears. Yes, panda bears. I really love this color. The best part about it is that it is build-able. I used 3 coats here, so it's not one of those sheerer pinks you'll be painting on endlessly in hopes that it will be your last coat. This is cooperative! I also really love this subtle microshimmer. I like the contrast of the aqua with the pink. It gives this polish some personality.

Happy Monday!


  1. I have to agree ;-) A few weeks ago, I've bought a polish because it is called "Captain Sparrow's Boat"!

  2. Of course we have all bought polish based on the name!  That's why I'm buying the new Orly Cupcakes and Unicorns when it comes out!  I have to have a polish with the word unicorn in it!

    This color is lovely though, it reminds me of NOPI's Kim-pletely in Love.

  3. So gorgeous! I like the subtle shimmer :)

  4. I totally buy polishes for the name.  Often.

  5. ive passed this in the store before, the effect is so subtle. definitely rethinking it!

  6. That's a super name, man.
