Cult Nails Hypnotic Collection for Fall 2011

Founder, Maria Morisson, on the inspiration behind the collection, “I looked for no specific inspiration for this collection. Instead, I simply allowed the colors to pull me in… to hypnotize me. With each release, I try to introduce several unique color choices while offering shades that range from basic to fantastic. Each of the colors in this collection entranced me in their own way while I perfected what I wanted to bring you.”

  • In a Trance Reminiscent of an aged skeleton key, this color shifts from olive green to muted gold with an enchanting shimmer
  • Enigmatic Indoors, the purple base takes on a brown hue and lets the silver shimmer steal the show; in sunlight, it draws flashes of red, blue, pink and purple sparkle
  • Awakening Muted or dusty teal that has a rich crème finish
  • Hypnotize Me Sheer green jelly with vibrant blue and green glitter; can also be layered for a shade, finish, and effect that is quite hypnotic all on its own.

Cult Nails lacquers are available for sale online at www.cultnails.com. Each 0.5 fl. oz. bottle sells for $10 USD. During the pre-sale event, the Hypnotic Collection will be sold only as a set for $30 USD, a savings of 25% off the regular price. Cult Nails™ lacquers are DBP, Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Camphor free and are not tested on animals.
