Cult Nails - Divas and Drama Collection

Hi everyone!!!  Happy Friday!  I'm happy that I made it through another week in my right mind ;0).



Many of you may have started to see swatches of these polishes already from the new Cult Nails collection, Divas and Drama.  I pre-ordered mine and received it this week.  I love the colors in this collection.

For all of the swatches, I used no base or top coat.

First, let's start with Enticing.  It is a light pink shimmer that is very sheer.  The formula wasn't the greatest for this one, which I was disappointed by.  It was on the thicker side, which wasn't too bad.  However, the application was very streaky, even after the third coat.

I think this is a really pretty polish, especially with the shimmer, but I don't see myself wearing it on its own.

Scandalous is a light peachy/coral jelly with a great formula.  It applies evenly and smoothly and dries quickly.  Of course, because it's a jelly it was pretty sheer.  With three coats though, it was close to full opacity.

Manipulative is a mint green shimmer.  It was a bit streaky with the first coat, but evened out nicely with the second.  The formula was a bit on the thick side, but manageable.

Seduction is a deep purple jelly base packed with blue and gold flakies.  It's so colorful.  Sometimes I think I see red in it also.  It applied well and was surprisingly opaque after three coats.  Here are pics of Seduction on its own:

I also layered Seduction over Scandalous (2 coats on the index and ring fingers and 1 coat over the middle and pinky fingers):

Finally, I decided to play around and sandwich Seduction between Scandalous, so I added a coat of Scandalous on top:

I thought it worked out pretty well together.

  7. I haven't tried mine yet. Enticing doesn't look as sheer as I was expecting it to be.

    1. Yeah, I thought it would be extremely sheer as well, but after the third coat, it wasn't bad at all.

    I skipped this collection mainly because of Enticing. I knew she wouldn't me my kinda polish. Glad I was right. Scandalous is fab!

  15. How weird is it that Enticing is a shimmery sheer but is still thick?! Maybe add a little thinner to it and see how that works. I love all of them on you, though. Especially Manipulative, it really pops!

  20. I really REALLY enjoyed your review of this collection!
    Seduction is my favorite of this collection, and your sandwich with the flakies is DIVINE! I will be trying that myself!
    I think the pink base would look great with some glittery tips or maybe some brown stamping over it? ;)
