Cult Nails Deal With It Nail Lacquer
Cult Nails Deal With It Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Deal With It Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lime green loaded with gold shimmer.” It’s an electric lime green with subtle yellow undertones and golden chartreuse shimmer. The closest dupe I could think of was China Glaze Cha Cha Cha, which isn’t quite as bright, and it is definitely less pigmented–it also has more shimmer (almost more metallic-like). China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada gets the level of brightness, but it’s a much lighter and less yellow-toned green.

This color is wicked; there is just so much brightness coming through. It’s neon but it has more dimension than a lot of the neon creams do. I wish it was a wee bit more pigmented, because there was some visible nail line after two coats. The formula isn’t too thick or too thin, so a third coat is totally do-able if you want really opaque results. Most of Cult Nails’ lacquers dry to a fairly shiny finish, this one is a little more matte (I suspect because of the neon qualities, as most neons dry semi-matte or matte), but it does dry nice and quick relative to most polishes. I typically get a full week or more with Cult Nails’ formula, which is absolutely stellar as far as wear goes.

I wish it was a little more pigmented, but it is nearly there--you couldn't tell at a glance. I like that this green isn't too yellow, though, so I think it would work on a wider variety of skin tones. Very summery!
