Cult Nails Untamed Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Untamed Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink sheer jelly polish with subtle multi-colored shimmer.” It’s a light-medium cotton candy pink with subtle blue undertones and light glitter (looked mostly white to me). MAC Saint Germain is a bit lighter and has a cream finish. MAC Vagabondage is a bit lighter as well and also has a cream finish. Zoya Rory looks a bit lighter because it has a ton of shimmer in it–cooler-toned, too. Zoya Lara is much darker. MAC Ice Cream Cake is a smidgen bluer-based and has a cream finish. MAC Galore Pink is less blue-based and has no shimmer.

It has that squishy, plush look of a jelly finish, and it is designed to be sheer, though it’s mostly opaque after two coats. If you wanted opaque color, I would recommend doing three coats. The consistency is just shy of being on the thicker side but typical to jelly finishes. Untamed isn’t dominated by the glitter, so it still looks mostly like a pink jelly polish more than anything else.  It does dry down to a naturally glossy finish and does so faster than the average polish. I typically get a full week or more with Cult Nails’ formula, which is absolutely stellar as far as wear goes.

Untamed

A+
The jelly finish really works with this color, especially because when this type of color is done in a cream finish, it is prone to streaking and running on the thicker side. You can get the color you want here but without the streaky mess.

    For a pink, this is pretty nice!

  2. Could someone explain what the thing is about jellies?  Is it that they dry faster?  Thanks!

    Wow. Cult Nails seems like such an awesome brand- quality and cheap!

  4. Very Barbie! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But I wouldn’t combine this color with a frilly girly outfit ;-)

    i feel like a lil kid but yeah, soooo cute!
    although it’d be slightly associated with tacky here cause of the shimmer(there’s this ‘tacky’ trend that too many girls here adopt(usually superficial, mean, annoying ones):bleached blond hair although black too, orange to brown fake tan(or real, yikes), too dark and orangey foundation for their skin, pale hot pink lipstick even tho it’s not flattering on most, a lotta glitter and gold, huge fake nails(usually pink), overdone with pencil eyebrows, tacky clothes. they’re a good laugh).
    i’d risk it, haha, it’s so unfair to worry that i’d be associated with them just cause i wear pink lipstick or nails, lol.

  9. Yeah, too little-kiddy for me. Not sure why…jellies just seem to do that for me, especially if they’re pink with shimmer! Too bad.
