Cult Nails Morning Glory from In The Garden Collection

Morning Glory is a part of Cult Nails‘ In The Garden Collection.  I’m a sucker for pre-sale savings, so of course I had to order it.  This set consists of a range of bright Spring colors.  This particular shade is a bright pink/fuscia.  It’s definitely not a neon, but it’s got a lot of color and won’t go unnoticed.  This polish, as well as two others in this collection have a was finish which is shown in the first two photos below.  This is my first time wearing a wax finish and it reminds me almost of a polish with a matte finish or topcoat applied.  I can certainly see this color being used heavily during the spring and summer months.

Here is Morning Glory with a topcoat.  I really do love this color and hope that my icky photos really convey what a pretty medium-dark pink color this is.  I am not usually one to wear pink polishes, but this one is reminiscent of my wild and crazy days back in the 80s.  Good times.  Heavy metal, aquanet, big hair, spandex, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Wham, Culture Club and fishnet stockings.  Godfather’s Pizza and the Fiesta Taco in the Kendale Lakes Mall.  Had my first job at the Baseball Card Store in that mall; second job actually.  But I digress.  Here is Morning Glory in full shine mode.

Thanks for reading, I hope you all had a nice weekend.  With any luck I will get some more of this set posted before long.  I’m actually currently wearing another color, and can’t wait to share.

Easter Manicure

Hello everyone!  Happy Easter to those who celebrate and happy Sunday to those who don’t.  🙂

Today I have Nails Inc Lower Regent Street with a nice topping of Angel Burp by I Love Nail Polish.  Lower Regent Street is a bright fuschia pink that is described as a deep cerise pink on the website.  It gave complete coverage with two coats, and dried to a nice shine. As I’ve come to expect, the application of Nails Inc. polish was a dream! The addition of Angel Burp gave this bright pink a bit more of a Springtime/Easter feel.  This clear polish is a mix of opalescent/iridescent hex and square glitters and a nice bit of microfine glitter.  This first shot shows the manicure, topped with TWO coats of Seche Vite in daylight.

Here is the same manicure shown under the light of a camera flash.  This view definitely gives you a  better view of those wee little glitters I told you about.  These are both gorgeous polishes that I am sure I will get a lot of use from.  Also, the I Love Nail Polish bottles have a nice rubberized cap!!  That makes polishing so easy as the cap feels quite secure in the hand.  I’ve really come to like this feature that I’ve seen so far in Orly and now I Love Nail Polish.  Nails Inc.
