Cult Nails Grunge Nail Lacquer
Cult Nails Grunge Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Grunge Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “military green creme.” It’s a light-medium, muted green with subtle, almost cool, undertones and a cream finish. It’s incredibly pigmented–it was almost totally opaque in a single coat. It dried down to a lightly shiny finish, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. If every polish was like this, our wallets would be doomed–it’s so, so well-formulated. Zoya Gemma (P, $8.00) is darker. Zoya Bevin (P, $8.00) is less green, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Wack Slacks Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bold blue creme.” It’s a rich, medium-dark blue with a purple tinge and a cream finish. Like Grunge, this was incredibly pigmented–this was opaque in one coat, but I did two coats for the swatches. The consistency was nicely balanced, not too thick or too thin, and spread evenly across the nail without streaking. It might be one of the best cream polishes I’ve ever used. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pond (P, $10.00) is bluer, brighter. MAC Blue Gaze (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Breezy Blue (LE, $16.00) is similar. Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like (LE, $19.00) is sheerer, slightly bluer. See comparison swatches.

Feedback Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft gold, pink, orange mylar flakes.” It’s as described: a mix of gold, pink, and orange flakes that shimmer and reflect as the light hits them. The consistency of the polish is very, very thick–almost gel-like–and the best application seemed to be pushing and pulling the polish into place. One coat has enough flakes that only one coat is necessary for topping your favorite nail color. I haven’t used a lot of flakey top coats like this, but so far, I haven’t been a big fan. Cult Nails Walk of Shame (P, $12.00) doesn’t have flakes and looks darker overall. Cult Nails Happy Ending (LE, $12.00) is multi-colored but is similar with respect to the shapes. See comparison swatches.

Oooh. I have too many military green’s in my collection to justify buying another one for myself…but lately my sister keeps borrowing them every time she visits. I think I know just want to buy for a stocking stuffer now though 🙂
