Cult Nails Warehouse Sale Mega Post of Photos, Swatches & (Quick) Review-a-thon

Cult Nails Alter Ego Nail Lacquer
Cult Nails Alter Ego Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails is having a “warehouse clearance” sale of colors that have been discontinued. This post features photos and swatches of shades that are available for $5, 6, or 7 a pop that I haven’t reviewed previously (just got these this week!).  I’ve also included links to all previous shades that are discontinued that I’ve reviewed before.  There are three–Blaze, Mazo, and Party Time–that I don’t have, but I did order them and if I get them before they’re sold for good, I’ll be happy to post.

Baker is described as a “rich butterscotch/tan creme with gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, yellow peach with soft gold sparkle. It was semi-opaque after two coats, and application was very slightly streaky at times. See comparison swatches.

Blackout is described as a “deepened slate grey creme.” It’s a deep, dark, soft black–a gray black, if you will–with a cream finish and a glossy shine. It was fully opaque after applying two coats. See comparison swatches.

Swanbourne is described as a “deep, alluring brown creme laced with flashes of golden shimmer.” It’s a rich, chocolate brown with subtle warm, reddish undertones and copper-bronze flecks of shimmer. It was fully opaque in two coats and was a dream to apply and work with. See comparison swatches.

Tulum is described as a “luxurious milk chocolate creme … with gold shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, muted beige-brown with golden micro-sparkle. It was opaque after two coats of polish, and it applied fairly evenly and smoothly. See comparison swatches.

Doppelganger is described as a “sheer top coat that transforms your existing polish by giving it a ‘dusty’ feel while adding a familiar multi-colored shimmer.” It adds a layer of bluish-white cloudiness plus multi-colored shimmer–almost looks like a nebula applied over black with a very thin coat. The consistency was on the thicker side, so it can apply too heavily for a layered look. It’s quite pretty on its own, too–reminded me of bridal nails with more oomph.

Alter Ego is described as a “sheer top coat that will cast a gold and green tinge over your polish.” It transforms into a fine shimmer of oiled bronze when layered over another color. I applied one coat over Nevermore, Cult Nails’ black cream.

Deception is described as a “sheer top coat that lays a pink/purple sheen over your existing polish.” Layered over another polish, it adds a fine violet shimmer. I applied one coat over Nevermore, Cult Nails’ black cream.

Two Timer is described as a “sheer top coat that enhances your existing color by casting a beautiful emerald shimmer over it.” It transforms into a fine shimmer of emerald green when layered over another color. I applied one coat over Nevermore, Cult Nails’ black cream.

Additional Discontinued Shades: (Shades I’ve reviewed are linked) Ay Poppy!, Blaze, Center of Attention, Dance All Night, Feelin’ Froggy, Hypnotize Me, In a Trance, Let Me Fly, Mazo, Morning Glory, Party Time, Spontaneous, Walk of Shame, You’re My Dandy Lion
