Cult Nails You’re My Dandy Lion Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails You’re My Dandy Lion Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft, but bright, yellow with a perfect finish.” It’s a buttery, warm yellow with a creamy finish–and very true that it’s bright yet not neon and there is a softness to the color as a result. There is a subtle pearl shimmer to it, but it’s nearly impossible to see. NARS 15 Minutes is lighter. NARS Amchoor is darker, brighter. MAC Al Fredo is darker and sheer. Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road is also a bit darker and sheer. Deborah Lippmann Yellow Fever is a bit darker and warmer.

Cult Nails Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “wax finish taupe.” It’s a mauve-ish taupe with a very faint shimmer that is barely visible if the polish is applied on its own, and then the shimmer is more noticeable if a top coat is applied. It has a waxy or rubbery finish–mostly matte but not a chalky, flat matte. Chanel Frenzy is browner and a cream, so it doesn’t have the wax finish. Barielle Belly Dance is very similar if Let’s Get Dirty has a top coat layered over it.

Top 10 of 2012: Best Nail Lacquers

Top 10 of 2012: Best Nail Lacquers

I really don’t know how I managed to keep this list to ten, because I feel like I fall in love with a new polish every week. There were SO many more amazing polishes that aren’t on this list, though. I tried to go across brands and put together a list of ones that really struck me or were more original.

What’s was your favorite nail lacquer of 2012?

Cult Nails Happy Ending Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Happy Ending Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) contains shredded multi-colored flakes suspended in a clear base. There’s aqua-blue, copper, gold, and lavender from what I can see–I swear I see a hint of green, but I think it might be the gold. I don’t have anything like this, and I’m not even sure if I have more than one or two shredded polishes on hand. Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday is the closest I could think of, but it’s multi-sized glitter particles (squares and hexagons) with a lot of green in it. Even though the sizes/shapes are different, I think the two yield at least a comparable feel: a big ol’ glitter-party on your nails.
