Cult Nails Passionate Dreams Collection for Spring 2014

Cult Nails Passionate Dreams Collection

…She dreamed of the day when she would find him, the one. And find him, she did. He passed her in the park on her morning walk. She’d been watching him as he approached. With his head down and his hands in his pockets, he hadn’t given her so much as a glance. But there he was, the absolute man of her dreams. His stride was flawless and graceful, but manly. His build was average but he carried himself with confidence, not cockiness. And his eyes. Oh his eyes! When he looked up to apologize for almost bumping into her, she could feel his eyes looking deeper into her soul than she ever thought possible. His stare was intense. Heart stopping. Lethal. That was the moment. The feeling his gaze left her with was enough to ignite her passion. Then she felt it. The pounding in her heart. Her breathing became shallow and quick. Her senses were exploding at the thought of him simply speaking to her. Then, it happened. She looked back at him and their eyes met once more. It was undeniable; but as quickly as he approached, he continued on, blending in with the background until he was eventually out of sight.

CULT NAILS™ brings you the PASSIONATE DREAMS collection. With names like LETHAL, IGNITE, ANGEL WHISPERS, and KISS, this collection brings emotions of desire, lust, and passion, and the colors are no exception.

Nail Lacquer ($12.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Angel Whispers A soft, pale pink crème provides the base color for this texture polish. Even though the finish may feel slightly rough, its color and signature Cult Nails shimmer create a softening effect reminiscent of an Angel’s wings.
  • Lethal Like staring into your lover’s eyes, you won’t be able to look away when this silver foil is on your tips.
  • Ignite Blending a black jelly base with silver glitter, it’s like closing your eyes for that first kiss, and seeing stars. Ignite is pure passion fuel.
  • Kiss No love story is complete without a kiss. Crafted to invoke emotions of lust and desire, Kiss is a vibrant red that dries to a wax-like finish.

Availability: Pre-sale January 17-31, 2014. The 4 piece set will sell only as a collection during the pre-sale time for $35.00. Remaining colors, if any, will be sold individually beginning February 15, 2014 and will retail for $12.00 each at cultnails.com

5 Shades of Radiant Orchid for Lips & Tips

Now that 2014 has kicked off, and I’m sure you’ve heard that Pantone’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid.  I know we’ll see plenty of new introductions of the color throughout the year, but I know that we’ve seen the color before–and you may already have some in your stash!  Here are a few of my picks for wearing radiant orchid on your lips or your tips…

What are your favorite orchid-hued lip colors and nail polishes?

Top 10 of 2013: Best Nail Lacquers

I have to admit: this was a complete challenge. In fact, it felt unfair trying to narrow down favorites to a mere ten when I was considering around 300 different shades from the past year. As what tends to happen when I start to feel indecisive, I went for favorites across brands and weighted uniqueness slightly more heavily than other factors. But there were some really outstanding formulas released this year! At year-end, I have to give major props to Cult Nails and OCC, both of which had a lot of contenders.

What were your favorite polishes you tried this past year?

Cult Nails Warehouse Sale Mega Post of Photos, Swatches & (Quick) Review-a-thon

Cult Nails is having a “warehouse clearance” sale of colors that have been discontinued. This post features photos and swatches of shades that are available for $5, 6, or 7 a pop that I haven’t reviewed previously (just got these this week!).  I’ve also included links to all previous shades that are discontinued that I’ve reviewed before.  There are three–Blaze, Mazo, and Party Time–that I don’t have, but I did order them and if I get them before they’re sold for good, I’ll be happy to post.

Cult Nails Disillusion & Lamestain Nail Lacquers

Cult Nails Disillusion Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “black jelly base [with] magenta mylar shreds.” It is a black jelly base with medium to large fuchsia mylar flakes/shreds suspended within it. I don’t have anything quite like it, but NYX Dark Glitter (P, $4.00) contains red glitter suspended in a black jelly base, so it’s possible they have one like that but with fuchsia (but they are not mylar shreds). See comparison swatches.
