Cult Nails I Got Distracted Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “black jelly polish with holographic glitter interrupted by intense green glitter.” It’s an inky black base color with green-teal micro-glitter and holographic shimmer. I couldn’t think of any dupes for this one (not to say there may not be some–I would love your input!), and the closest I could come up with was NARS Night Breed, which is similar in composition, but it’s all silver shimmer/glitter.

Of all the shades, this is probably the one that catches your eye the most. There’s something about that intense, deep dark black base color and the holographic shimmer that grabs you! When I first swatched it, I had to post a quick picture of it on Instagram. It’s even more impressive in person, because you can see the way it really sparkles. It’s nearly opaque in one coat, though I did two swatches in the photos just to be sure (sometimes what looks opaque to me in person is almost opaque in photos!). The polish is on the thicker side, though.

It actually has an interesting finish without a top coat. I took the diffused flash photo with it dry but without a top coat (the other swatches have a top coat). The polish has some texture, so you’d want a thicker top coat for a smooth finish. I thought it looked like asphalt in a very pretty way. It’s shiny on its own, but it doesn’t look as smooth without a top coat. I typically get a full week or more with Cult Nails’ formula, which is absolutely stellar as far as wear goes. I’ve had this shade on my nails for the past five days with almost no noticeable tip wear.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

It’s not a very ergonomic handle – for nail polish, the 1 point off is usually the result of the handle being not ergonomic and/or no rubberized (so it’s not as easy to grip/hold).  Orly is an example of a great polish handle!

 @LJ777 They are only sold from the Cult Nails website, but they do ship internationally – I’m in the UK and ordered several packages with no problems, and only once when I had an order of 5 polishes did it get a customs charge.

Ugh I should have waited and gotten this instead of Butter’s The Black Knight. ): They look almost the same, but this one has two different sizes of glitter and Black Knight has a few more colors.

How do you create the line around the nail polish on your nail? I’m just curious, I know it’s not good to let polish pool up at your nail bed, so I wanna know everyone’s secret! Lol 

 @OliviaGrace You can only get it from their website, but they ship internationally, and accept paypal among other things – I’m in the UK and I’ve bought from them several times with no problem. Large orders may attract customs charges, though.
