Cult Nails - Toxic Seaweed

Hi everyone!!  I have a quick post I wanted to share with you all because it's a polish that may go quickly.  I recently took advantage of a pre-sale of Cult Nails' new collection, Let's Get Nekkid.  This collection contains five "nude" shades:  Mazo, Baker, Toxic Seaweed, Tulum, and Swanbourne.  For the details of how this collection came about, check out this post.  You'll also see swatches there.

I was able to get the entire collection with the pre-sale, but I'm only sharing swatches of Toxic Seaweed today because it is a Limited Edition polish and based on the buzz on Twitter and Facebook, it seems like this one will run out soon.  So I just wanted to give you all a look to help you decide whether or not you want to add it to your stash.

Toxic Seaweed is a forest green jelly that contains green and gold glitter and golden flakies.  It applied very easily and evenly.  It also dried fairly quickly.  In these pictures, I used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 2 coats of Toxic Seaweed, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

To be honest, I didn't want Toxic Seaweed when I first saw it. I'm not really a green lover and I just didn't think it would look that great on me.  I decided to get it because I was getting a great deal by purchasing it in advance.  I'm happy that I got it though, because I really like it so much more in person.  I love the gorgeous shimmer in it from the glitter and flakies.  It's also very unique.  I have nothing like it in my stash.  I'm very happy with this polish.

You can also check out Crystal's blog here to see additional swatches of the Get Nekkid collection.

The entire collection can be purchased for $50 on www.cultnails.com.  Individual polishes are $10 each.

What do you think of Toxic Seaweed?  Do you plan to get it?

  8. I like this a lot! I think it's great to branch out and try some colors that are out of your comfort zone. I also like receiving polish as a gift for the same reason.
