Cult Nails Swatches!


Hi guys! Today I have 4 Cult Nails polishes to share with you! I picked up 3 of these at the Cult Nails booth at The Makeup Show a couple weeks back and 1 was given to me by Maria at the show in a little blogger pack! I was pretty excited when I found out Cult Nails was going to be at The Makeup Show because I had been wanting to get a couple more bottles of their top coat (one of my favorites!), you know I couldn't pass up picking up some polish while I was there!

Charlatan is a duochrome top coat that flashes everything from magenta to blue depending on how you layer it. I originally wasn't going to get this but I needed 1 more polish to get the deal Cult Nails was having at their booth so Alyssa from Pretty Little Bottles who was there working with Maria talked me into this one. I have to say, it's pretty gorgeous...I'm glad she told me I needed this one! It reminds me a lot of the CND Effects, specifically Sapphire Sparkle. This is a lot more bang for your buck though than the CND Effects are, I feel like there is a lot more shimmer in this. I used 1 coat over Nails Inc Black Taxi for the photos below.

Deal With It is a bright green with a golden shimmer running throughout. This is the polish that was in the little blogger pack from Maria. I cannot seriously believe I didn't already own this, it's awesome! The shade of green reminds me of Nickelodeon slime, I think that's maybe why I love it so much haha! The formula was good, a little sheer but it built up without any issues. It did dry down looking a little bit matte so I used top coat for the photos. I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Seduction is a sheer purple packed with multicolored flakies. This is another that I can't believe I never bought before The Makeup Show. It is somewhat similar to Cult Nails Unicorn Puke/Clairvoyant but the flakies flash different colors. Unfortunately it looks like this has sold out on the Cult Nails website, not sure if Maria will be bringing it back or not. I used 1 coat of Seduction  over Seche Empress (dark purple creme)

Temptest is a white creme. Other than Wicked Fast this was the one polish I went to The Makeup Show knowing I would get...we can all thank (or blame) KellieGonzo for it. A few days before the show I saw Kellie's post saying how fantastical this white was and I trust her opinion so I needed it in my life.  Kellie was right...it's fantastical. The formula is pretty much flawless and nearly a 1 coater. It's so nice and creamy, I had no problems with application. Color me impressed....it will probably be my go to white for a while. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

  1. Jen, I have Charlatan and Seduction. I wore Charlatan over a black base and let me tell you, I got so many compliments. The girl at Walgreens literally gasped when she saw it. She kept saying it was the most gorgeous thing she ever saw! It is awesome. I can't believe how pretty it is. Glad I bought it. Haven't tried Seduction yet...

  11. I just received my first order ever of Cult Nails in the mail today with Seduction in it. Can't wait to try it on! I have Layla Ceramic effects 52 and I thought this would be similar, but the Seduction looks much more sheer. I have a deep purple I want to layer it over. Squee!

  16. Took me a while to figure out which polish Charlatan reminds me of: Deborah Lippmann Dream a Little Dream of Me is very close, best as I can tell from swatches (I have the DL but not the Cult).
