For those who haven't come across Cult Nails before, it's the nail polish company created by R3 Daily blogger Maria. In 2010, Maria developed her own line of nail polishes with a green philosophy - all polishes are vegan friendly and packaged using recyclable materials. The nail polishes are Big 3 Free and don't contain Phthalate or Camphor which is fantastic. They are a cruelty free company and do not test on animals.
My Kind of Cool Aid was the very first Cult Nails colour and was released on January 11 2011 in its Inaugural collection. It's described as a purple/gray - a "gravender" creme polish with a delicate shimmer. It is an ABSOLUTELY gorgeous shade! It leans more grey on me and is the perfect shade for this time of year in Sydney. It's work appropriate but the shimmer sets it apart and makes it extra special. I LOVE SHIMMER!
The bottle shape is very similar to Catrice bottles so it took a moment to get used to using as I prefer the normal bottle caps. I love the look of the round bottles but the cap throws me! The brush is nice and firm but very flexible and fantastic to use. It's very easy to control the polish and no clean up was needed whatsoever. The formula is a dream - it glided onto my nails and only 2 coats was needed for opacity which is pictured in all photos (no topcoat). Dry time was average and it dried to a high gloss finish.
As usual I can't leave any mani alone so I added some subtle stamping with China Glaze Awaken using Konad plate m71. You couldn't really notice the stamping unless you looked closely!
My Kind of Cool Aid can be purchased from the Cult Nails online store for $10. I purchased my bottle during a sale which Maria does from time to time so make sure you keep an eye out for them! I think it's so awesome that a fellow blogger has followed her dream and created her own line of nail polishes!! I think it's every little girl's dream x)
What do you think? Have you tried Cult Nail polishes yourself? Thanks for looking as always!
