Cult Nails Hypnotic Collection


While at Cosmoprof this year, I had the pleasure of meeting Maria of Cult Nails fame. While I've heard wonderful things about her polishes, I had never gotten to see or try them in person...until now. Maria was generous enough to gift me a couple of her latest collection, the Hypnotic Collection, and  I am super excited to show them to you! These polishes far exceed my expectations, and the polish I didn't really think I'd like (it's so sheer, and my nails are so stained!) turned out to be the gem, and my favorite of the four!

The four colors included in the Hypnotic collection are In a Trance, Awakening, Enigmatic, and Hypnotize Me. 












Murky olive green shimmer that has hints of gold and coppery awesomeness.

This is the color I was SUPER excited to check out, and it surely didn't disappoint. When the sun hits this polish, it is stunning! A perfect color for fall, I wouldn't miss picking it up if I were you. 

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA 

Finish: Shimmer, 2-3 coats to be opaque








Winey purple with silver sparkle.

This silver sparkle in this seems to pick up different colors of the rainbow - at first I thought it was holographic, but it's not. Very pretty though! 

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA 

Finish: Shimmer, 2-3 coats to be opaque






OMG, look at that amazing deep blue sparkle!






Dusty teal creme

This, although simple, is a gorgeous color, and I wore it for 5 days straight!! Paired with Hypnotize Me, I truly couldn't keep my eyes off it (especially in sunlight!) This polish IS fairly sheer, but it did build up very nicely in only 3 coats. 

Opacity scale (1-5): 2

Use for Konad: TBA 

Finish: Creme, 3 coats to be opaque




Sheer green base with green and blue glitter. 

Though I would probably never wear this color on its own, since my nails are so stained, I absolutely adore this color over Awakening.  LOVE. IT. The glitter in this polish morphs from different angles and over different colors. This is a MUST purchase. Bear in mind that, like most glitters, this dries to a semi-matte, textured finish, so you'll definitely need a top coat like Seche Vite.

Opacity scale (1-5): 1

Use for Konad: TBA 

Finish: Glitter, a million coats to be opaque :-D


Cult Nails polishes can be found at www.cultnails.com and are sold for $10 per bottle.

  3. Loving ALL of these. So, so pretty. The Awakening and Hypnotize Me combo reminds me of the LE CND combo from last year- Urban Oasis and Teal Sparkle.
    (though Teal Sparkle was rather more pedestrian than Hypnotize Me...)
    In A Trance is unbelievably tremendous!

  4. Okay, I got 'em. In A Trance and Hypnotize Me...plus... Let Me Fly and Living Water (they were having a sale, after all!) So when China Glaze- Trendsetter shows signs of wear (not yet!), I'll take the Cult Nails plunge! These are GORGEUOS polishes.
