Cult Nails Spontaneous
After months on hiatus, I'm finally back with a new post in the blog, The past few months have been extremely busy. A new demanding position at work, and with kids home during the summer months, left me with very little time for myself. All work and no play has made me a not-so fun person. I missed sharing my nail polish obsession, so I hope to be back and posting more regularly. Now, back to nail business...
While I may have been away from my blog for months, it certainly did not hinder me from acquiring new additions to my collection. A new brand for me was Cult Nails. Maria, founder and creator, released a very special collection this past July. Coco's Untamed Collection was created by Maria's, then not-quite thirteen year-old daughter, Coco. The collection consists of five beautiful colors. Being that I am a purple lover, Spontaneous immediately jumped out at me.
Hello purple beauty! Spontaneous is a smokey deep purple creme filled with bright purple micro-glitter. The contrast between the muted tone purple, and the vibrant violet glitter, is simply amazing.
While indoors, the deep purple shade is very sultry. Under direct sunlight, the purple micro-glitter shimmers like crazy! So beautiful!
Being new to the brand, my first attempt with the application was a bit tricky. Maybe it was the brush, since I didn't find the formula too be too thick or too thin. I did feel a bit challenged during my first coat because I could not get it to apply evenly on the nails. Nothing a second and third coat couldn't fix though. It did dry to a slightly gritty finish. Again, easy and nicely fixed with a good top coat like Poshé
I'm loving this color; I am very sure I will be reaching for this color again.
