Cult Nails It’s a New Day Collection

Happy Sunday all!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and feel rested and refreshed and ready for the week ahead.  LOLOLOL  I know, I know, but still.  

Today I have a polish collection to share with you from one of my favorite polish makers, Cult Nails.  Maria makes wonderful polishes that I always seem to find the irresistible urge to buy! Her frequent sales and discounted collection pre-sales help to make this possible. ^_^  Today’s collection is the recently released It’s A New Day.  Funny story about this one, I placed my order a couple days before the end of the pre-sale and was excited to get my shipping information confirmed when the items were packaged.  They were shipped on 4/30 with an anticipated delivery date of 5/2.  May 2nd came and went and no polish. They seem to have taken a detour between the Orlando sort facility and my home in south central Pennsylvania as they were eventually delivered on May 12th after a trouble ticket and a couple calls to the USPS.  Did they go to Disney, Universal Studios or check out the New Harry Potter attractions?  Maybe visit some of my friends that still live in Florida?  The world may never know.  But I digress.  Now, on to the beautiful spring polishes……  Continue reading

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.

The colors this month include a the brightest pastel colors I’ve ever seen.  Below are names and descriptions of each color.  Can I tell you how much I LOVE these polish names!!!  Yes??  OK.  I REALLY LOVE these polish names!!  🙂

  • Yellow Submarine is a pale, egg yolk yellow with the slightest silver shimmer
  • Flower Power is a pale green creme, what comes to mind when I see this color is a grasshopper in a children’s book 🙂
  • Groovy Love is as close to the color of lilacs as you can get in a lovely creme polish
