Manicure Monday with Cult Cosmetics

We’re a little late with today’s Manicure Monday post, but it’s a good one! Last time we told you about Cult Cosmetics we talked about Black Box, their subscription service. This time we are sharing with you their brand new line of nail polish! I was so excited when I heard that they were coming out with their own nail polish! From what I have seen they only carry top quality polish and tools in their kits, so I couldn’t wait to see what they had come up with!

Sorry about the polish on the bottles, my 3 year old thought they were pretty too :)

I received Joshua Tree, Hollywood Forever and their Botanical Base Coat. I LOVE the base coat! I know, it is horrible when I say that I often don’t wear a base coat when I do my nails other than when I do gels. Most of them just peel right off my nails. As soon as I started painting with this base coat I knew it was different. I could tell immediately that my nails were stronger. The only issue I had with this base coat was that I got these little bumps in my manicure from it. I’m not sure where they came from but both times I used it they showed up. There are very few and the benefits outweighed the bumps, but it is very possible that it was just dust or something that my daughter shoved in there when I wasn’t looking.

My first manicure with this polish included the base coat and Joshua Tree. This is how it turned out:

If you look closely you can kind of see the bumps I was talking about, but I was very impressed with Joshua Tree. I probably could have gotten away with just one coat, but I decided to keep it safe and add two coats. It turned out amazing and actually lasted quite sometime. I was very surprised with how strong my nails were using this polish! I don’t think I have ever had a product make my nails as strong as these do.

Next up I used the base coat, Hollywood Forever, and a black polish I had laying around (just to show you a little better).

This has to be my favorite of the group! It reminds me of Flakies which is a polish that I never got a chance to get my grubby hands on! This is definitely a polish that I will be using a lot. It looks blue in the pictures but if you turn it to a different angle it changes colors. It lays pretty flat so you don’t have to worry about a texture feel, especially if you add a top coat. Hollywood Forever is now on my favorites list in my polish collection! I just hope they come out with similar colors in their collection!

You can find these and other amazing colors from Cult Cosmetics on their website here. Hopefully I will be able to share some more of these with you very soon!

  4. As a nail artist with over 17 years of experience, the little bumps in your nails polish come from 1. too thick a layer, 2. not clean nails, 3. with multiple layers the first layer might not have been 100% dry. If it keeps happening, I’d like to know.
