Cult Nails Coco’s Untamed Collection


Cult Nails Coco’s Untamed Collection

Cult Nails announces Coco’s Untamed Collection! As many of you may know, Cult Nails is a family business and when Maria sits down to create polish colors, it’s not uncommon for her daughters to have a seat and start creating their own polishes as well. They typically create a polish or two that they want to immediately wear, but Coco became a diehard in the home lab and would create polish after polish like a mad scientist!

If you have nails and you are near Coco, your hands will most likely be polished to perfection. The easily distracted Coco knows no boundaries when it comes to nails and polish. You will just have to deal with it as she paints your nails. We had this Spontaneous 12 year old pick her top 5 favorite creations and we are releasing them as her collection! Since she created the colors, we thought it was only fitting that she also name the colors. So Coco and her marketing team (Her BFF Anna) set aside about 30 minutes and began the hard work to name this collection.

When Maria asked Coco what inspired the colors, she gave her a look that said it all. The colors themselves were the inspiration.

  • Annalicious Shimmery red with an orange influence packed full of red and gold shimmer
  • Deal With It Coco’s favorite color: lime green loaded with gold shimmer
  • I Got Distracted Black jelly polish with holographic glitter interrupted by intense green glitter
  • Spontaneous Dark, deep, dusty purple creme with vibrant purple glitter
  • Untamed Bubblegum pink sheer jelly polish with subtle multi-colored shimmer

Availability: July 11th, 2012 @ cultnails.com; pre-sale begins 7/11 ($40 for collection) and ends 7/17, $10 each and available individually on 7/18

OCC Skin: Conceal (Concealer)

OCC Skin: Conceal ($20.00 for 8.5 grams) recently launched with twelve shades (which is impressive for a concealer range). There are six yellow-based shades and six red-based shades. Each concealer is packaged in a clear plastic screw-top jar, and inside is the concealer. The concealer is in a hardened block, but it’s creamy to the touch and as you dip your brush in it. The texture isn’t too creamy, which can lead to a lot of settling or sliding around during the day, but it isn’t so dry that it’s difficult to blend out. It has amazing opaque coverage; it will hide just about anything, and it never feels heavy, looks cakey, or requires a lot of product. Just a quick pat of concealer on any area will conceal most imperfections.

Cult Nails Charming Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Charming Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a smoky lilac with subtle pink undertones and a very fine iridescent fuchsia-purple shimmer. NARS Pokerface is pinker. Illamasqua Faux Pas is darker, but has a similar smoky/muted quality. Zoya Lotus has a lot of red in it.  I couldn’t think of a close dupe for this shade.
