Cult Nails In a Trance & Awakening

Another Amazing person I got to meet at CosmoProf was Maria from R3Daily who created Cult Nails. It was fun chatting with her and hearing her story about how she took a chance and decided to create Cult Nails. Now i have to admit that most of the chatting with Maria happened after we had dinner and drinks with Katie from the painted nail. Which translates to I was pretty "happy" (tipsy). hahah okay I wasn't that bad I only had two cocktails! We tried to find somewhere to go dancing but honestly we failed really bad and just ended up going to some other bar and had another drink or two, but back to my story, Maria told me she took one of her daughters to a Fortune teller (or a palm reader) for her birthday and the lady really wanted to read Maria's Fortune but she didn't want her to since she was there mainly for her daughter but the lady did not give up. The Fortune Teller said she had a strong pull to Maria so she finally said okay, now being "tipsy" i don't remember the exact thing she told her but it was something to the effect that she sees all these colors around her and how this will bring her success. I remember Maria mentioned she was having all these intense dreams about starting her company around that time too and seeing the fortune teller just confirmed that she had to just do it.

 Now that i've officially told you guys the worst story ever since i remember half of it myself i think it's time to shut up and share with you guys two colors from Cult Nails Fail Collection! I hope you enjoyed my drunks guide to the creation of Cult Nails!

Cult Nail Polish can be purchased online at Cult Nails . They retail $10.00 a piece and every now and then they have promos so become a facebook fan HERE to keep up with the latest Cult Nails News!
Some nail art I whipped up using the two colors. I call it "Stormy Waters"
In A Trance (Sun)


This is not a color I'm naturally drawn to but I have to say once on the nails it was very nice. I was surprised at how well it went with my skin tone since I sorta pegged it as a color that would only look good for darker skin tones. It's such a lovely rich olive color. Even the Husband noticed it and liked it! I don't have any exact dupes of this color but I feel like there are a few similar colors to this one. Oh I also have to say that while wearing this I often thought of snake skin and teenage mutant nina turtles. 
Sun, love the golden shimmer that comes out to play in the sun!

With Flash, This one is considered to be the basic in this Fall collection. It's a dusty teal Creme and once again not a color I'm drawn to but I am impressed with the creme formula on this one. Only took two coats to get opaque. I like this color because a lot of these darker colors like this tend to cross the line and just end up looking black. I don't consider this so basic since i've gone through my collection and i don't have anything close to this shade. It's a much darker teal than I'm used to seeing. If you guys are aware of some similar ones let me know!

The other two colors I used for the "wave accents" were Jesse's Girl Glee and Sally Hansen's a Girl's Best Friend

  1. LOL teenage mutant turtles.  I love the nail art you did. :) I love both polishes they are very pretty. ;)

  2. Love the combo! Looks so good!

  3. So pretty :)

    my nails grow long pretty fast but they break all the time! can you do a post on nail care/maintenance? Thanks!

  4. Thank you! i would have never thought to put these two together but they complement each other

  5. That sounds like a good idea, I'll try to do a post about it in the next few weeks(might be sooner ). But honestly i don't do much other than keep them polished, I usually have like 4-5 coats of polish on at all times including the base and top coat and i use lotion a lot.

  7. Loving the wave! I never get access to Jessie's polishes - no retail outlet and their web site it's impossible to tell what shade is good or not.
