Cult Nails It's A New Day Collection

Pin It
Wow, I've been gone for a while now guys. 
I do not even know when I blogged last... 
First I was uninspired, then I just got busy. Funny how having a full time job makes me more inclined to fall straight in to bed when I get home, rather than set up my light box, pull off a manicure & snap away, hey.

I've sort of missed being out of the loop in the beauty/nail blogging world - even if my wallet has been rather chuffed!!

Tonight, I have the last nail related purchase I made before taking a break from it all:

It's A New Day came out in April (I had to search that on the interwebs because I seriously had no idea when I got these - it feels like a lifetime since a nail polish parcel arrived on my doorstep).
Designed as a spring collection it contains surprise, surprise, some pastel-esque hues.

Cult Nails Evolution

 Evolution is the star of this mini collection. A semi-sheer pale peach crelly - it takes about 4 coats to give full coverage, but the squishy shine is worth that extra dry time! Whenever I wear this dream I get loads of compliments. It is gentle enough to look almost neutral, but the hint of peach still makes it stand out - the best office appropriate compromise!

Cult Nails Falling Hard

Falling Hard did not play nice with my camera. In person, this is a cool, purple leaning light-medium pink; but my camera sucked most of the colour out of it. This is in the wheelhouse of Essie A Splash of Grenadine, which I also have, but it has a creme formula and covers nicely in 2 coats.

Cult Nails New Day

New Day is a pastel sunny lemon creme. It doesn't have as problematic an application as some yellow pastels, but I still felt the need to do 3 coats and add some Seche Vite to smooth out the finish. Considering I purged all my yellows last year, it is quite nice to have one again - just in cases.

Though these are some nice staples for any collection, none of these lacquers are terribly unique. However, the collection came with a stamping plate that I couldn't pass up! It has an argyle pattern!!!!!!!
I have only tried out the handwriting stamp - and I didn't use my Seche to topcoat so it smeared bad - but I know I'll try more in the future.

Let me know if you can figure out what that wee paragraph says - all I can get from the photos is "...joined the" & "... and fell". I think Love might be one of the missing words?

Just so you know, I hope to post a couple of times a week from now on. I still do my nails most nights, I just haven't been getting in to the nail art because it takes too long and I get sooooo sleepy!
I've got some products reviews I ought to have posted a few months back, so stay tuned my pretties!

  1. Yeah, our lives get so busy, especially when you have a full-time job outside the home. I don't know how nail bloggers do it! Hopefully, the pretties will get your attention once again soon!
