Cult Nails Blaze Nail Lacquer
Cult Nails Blaze Nail Lacquer

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a Cult Nails’ swatches mega post, as they’ve significantly discounted shades that have now been discontinued but was missing three (and then bought them!).  As promised, here are photos and swatches of those three–they’re still available through 12/31 (or while supplies last).

Cult Nails Blaze Nail Lacquer ($6.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blend of glowing gold and copper glitter.” It consists of pale gold and copper micro-glitter suspended in a clear base. Two coats could work alone, but it’s better used as a layering top coat–I did one coat over black as an example. Each coat is fairly dense, but the consistency wasn’t too thick to be used as a layering top coat or with two coats of it on its own. Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Charm (112) (P, $18.00) is more metallic, less glittery. China Glaze Electrify (LE, $7.50) has much larger glitter pieces. See comparison swatches.

Mazo Nail Lacquer ($5.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fair sheer nude with an elegant gold shimmer.” It’s a yellowed beige with fine yellow gold shimmer. It was semi-sheer to semi-opaque on nails after two coats. It applied evenly for the most part, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. MAC Hangin’ Loose (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more beige. Chanel Beige Petale (LE, $27.00) is sheerer. Rescue Beauty Lounge Ani (LE, $20.00) is less yellow/warm-toned. China Glaze Fast Track (LE, $7.50) is a bit darker and browner. See comparison swatches.

Party Time Nail Lacquer ($7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “intensely pigmented blue creme with a hint of green.” It’s a vibrant, medium blue with a cream finish and natural shine. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but at certain angles, you could see a faint hint of visible nail line. This one will likely stain nails; just swatching this (so it wasn’t on for more than an hour) left behind a slight stain. The consistency was on the thinner side but had no impact on the application. Dior Bahia (792) (LE, $24.00) is darker. Zoya Liberty (P, $8.00) has a matte/glittery texture. NARS Koliary (LE, $19.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Noble (P, $17.00) is also lighter. SpaRitual Ebb & Flow (LE, $10.00) is lighter, brighter. Rescue Beauty Lounge Faraway (LE, $20.00) is lighter, has slight shimmer. Zoya Phoebe (P, $8.00) is matte. See comparison swatches.

  1. Blaze is gorgeous, especially over that black nail polish. :)

  2. Love Party Time, but blue nail polish is an obsessive thing with me. The rest, well, I’m rather tired of layering polishes and have been keeping it simple. Still, Cult Nails is a much loved brand.

  3. All 3 shades are so pretty! Makes me want to get my nails done lol. I’ve been wanting to do an all glitter look since it’s Christmas but I’m not sure which polish I want to use. The first one makes me want rose gold lol

    Blaze looks amazing over Cult Nails Quench!!!

  5. I’ve never tried this brand, but I keep seeing awesome colours from them… I wonder if they ship here…

    Love the blue, it’s a refreshing change from all the gold/silver/green/red I’ve been revolving around this close to the holidays!

    Hello Christine

    I love your website, it is so wonderful (and addictive !) I live in France and here we don’t have access to “Cult Nails” “Illamasqua” or “Zoya”

    but we have “Essie” and “OPI” brands, would it be possible that you make some reviews on these nail polish brands too ? it would be so nice !!

    Xo Xo Agnes and thanks again for your wonderful job !
