Julep's Parker and Cult Nails Captivated

First I want to thank anyone who has read my blog so far and has come back. I am very new at this but I really do enjoy being able to share my love of polish with others who understand my addiction.

I also wanted to say that all the nail polish I show on here may not be the latest or most expensive polishes out there. When it comes to polish I really don't discriminate. If I like the color then I will buy it no matter if it is a brand people consider cheap and completely brush aside. Good polishes come in all different shades, colors, brands, and price ranges. No matter if it came out this month or two years ago this blog is going to be about my new nail discoveries. It may  be something you know and love already or something you never thought of trying but I think it's always worth a shot.

Give polish a chance people!

With all that said I am going to keep the rest short and sweet. The manicure I currently have on my hand is three coats of Julep's Parker topped with one coat of Cult Nails captivated. I will do a full review on Parker possibly some time this week. I like the color but I just didn't like the application and the results. That's why I covered it with glitter. Glitter just makes everything better!

Cult Nails Enticing

Today was such a long day at work but there were a couple moments that just really made my day. I like to feed the geese and ducks behind my office and today one of the geese actually came right up to me and ate out of my hand. I had to hold back me squeal of joy to not scare him off but it was really an awesome experience.

On to the manicure I currently have on my hand. I started off with Enticing by Cult Nails. This is really a beautiful pale pink color that is ultra feminine and girly. It did take me three coats to get is as opaque as I wanted but really that wasn't bad. Mine seemed a little thick when I was putting it on but it did even out in the end. That could be my fault though because I tried a new basecoat out for the first time.

This color is really great but I just didn't feel it was the right color for me. So to make it a little more my style I added a coat of Essie Set in Stones and OMGoodness I am in love. These two colors really compliment each other so great! I think it was just a little too much pink for me but the large chunks of silver glitter really break it up and make a great accent. If you have these two I definitely recommend the combination. Let me know what you think.

Scandalous from Cult Nails

Cult Nails has become my new addiction and the great new colors are not making it any better. To make matters worse they just had a $5 sale to celebrate 5K facebook fans which of course I could not resist. I picked up three new polishes to add to my growing cult nails collection.

Scandalous is from the Divas and Drama collection and is actually a surprising favorite for me. I am just branching out into corals and trying to get away from my comfort zone and I have to say I really like this one. I bought the entire collection because of the great pre-sale price but was mainly just excited for the gorgeous blue and of course a flakie polish! I did a quick swatch of them all but ended up going with Scandalous first for my full manicure.

Yes I know I missed some spots in the clean up but I think you have to admit this color is gorgeous on and off the nails! It is a little on the sheer side but builds up nicely. After two coats I still noticed some visible nail line so I decided to go with a third coat and topped it off  with a layer of seche vite. I definitely think this is a color I will wear again throughout the spring and summer. I think it just might be going on my toes tonight.
