Cult Nails | First Look! Color Changing Top Coats

Cult Nails | First Look! Color Changing Top Coats

Cult Nails is releasing new, color changing top coats to the general public in September.  gloss48 members get exclusive first look access AND a fabulous discount on the new line and a smattering of colors from the Cult collection starting at 11am ET on Friday, August 24th.  Hurry – quantities are limited.

Nail guru and blogger Krystal from PolishGalore took the new top coats for a test drive for gloss48.

Cult Nails core line is Big 4 Free (DBP, Tolune, Formaldehyde and Camphor), is normally opaque in 2 thin coats, is long lasting, vegan and cruelty free!  Creator Maria Morrison has worked hard to bring new, exciting colors and finishes to the nail polish world, and she doesn’t disappoint with these new top coats!

These color altering top coats are not to be confused with her current fast drying top coat “Wicked Fast” which helps seal your polish and keep your nail polish from chipping or shrinking.  Instead, these are sheer polishes to be added on after you have painted your nails with a colored lacquer of your choosing.

For my manicures, I started with a clean nail prepped with Cult Nails “Get It On”, which is their perfecting base coat.  I then chose Nevermore, a black 1 coat crème, as my colored lacquer.

First up is Alter Ego, a beautiful sheer pink pearl with a golden shimmer… or is it?  To check out the Alter Ego effect, add one thin coat over Nevermore and now you’re rocking a beautiful olive green with lots of little microsparkles!  (For those Culties who remember, this is reminiscent of the Cult Nails lacquer Always Winning!)  For some wicked easy nail art, try only painting part of your nail with the Top Coat in a French manicure style, or as a half moon manicure.

Next is Two Timer, a sheer yellow pearl with green shimmer, but wait!  Just one coat of Two Timer over Nevermore produces an amazing jade shimmer – perfectly appropriate for fall!

But don’t just stop with black!  Try pairing one of the top coats with a blue or red to produce new color effects to suit your needs!
