Sorry, ladies… this gal has been off her beauty blogging game for awhile but she’s making a comeback. It starts with a Mani Monday, on Tuesday! Better late than never, right?
This week’s mani was done with Cult Nails In a Trance. This is not a shade I would typically wear but after reading Michelle’s post on military greens, I realized I had this shade already and that I should give it a shot. I’m very glad I did because I am loving this color.
I got to meet the founder of Cult Nails, Maria, at Cosmoprof last month. She’s a great gal and what I love most is that she started as a blogger. Read her blog and you’ll be envious of her gorgeous nails as I am. It’s interesting to hear about creating a collection from her perspective, it is not something we often hear.
As for In a Trance, the shade’s golden tones sparkle in the sunlight but in indoor lighting, you really see how on trend this shade really is. When I look at it, I’m instantly reminded of MAC’s Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow, it is as if this is the shade’s nail polish counterpart. I love this against my skin tone, it is not too dark and the green glistens against the gold shimmer. I also really liked the formula, it was thin enough so that I could control the application easily and leveled out nicely. For a gal who often applies her polish way too thick, this is worked well for me. I have swatches of a few other shades to show you and I’ll be posting those soon.
So what’s on your nails this week? Ignore my cuticles, it’s a daily battle. Let me know in the comments!
