Cult Nails Living Water Nail Laquer ($10.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blue jelly polish with ice blue and emerald green glitter inspired by the phosphorescent sea-water.” It’s a really blackened blue color base (more black than blue, even with flash) with pale blue, emerald green, and teal micro-glitter.

If you prefer a smooth finish, be sure to use a thicker top coat like Seche Vite (I took all the natural light photos without a top coat so you could see the natural finish) so you won’t feel the slight texture of the micro-glitter. I needed two coats to get opaque color, and the formula dries quickly but almost needs to set before going for a second coat.

For me, it dries to a semi-matte finish on the first coat, but the second coat held more shine (without a top coat), though I’d still recommend a shiny top coat for best results.  I did a wear test with this shade, since I haven’t tested enough of the brand’s shades to make any generalizations, and it wore for a week with minimal tip wear but no chipping.

P.S. — They’re actually have a buy three, get one free sale through Tuesday, just use code NEVERFORGET! :)
