Forget Me Not Friday - CULT NAILS: Manipulative & Masquerade

Pin It
Cult Nails Manipulative (L) and Masquerade (R)

It's Friday again, YAY! Today, I'm swatching Cult Nails Manipulative and Masquerade. I wasn't sure about swatching these 2 or not since they're discontinued and are only available via blog sale. But they've been staring at me, begging to be used LOL. These are so lovely and I can't wait to share :D

Manipulative is a pale, dusty blue-green with some subtle shimmer. This was released in 2012. I grabbed this in a blog sale last year because I didn't grab it before it sold out. Although I have 10 million blue-green, dusty turquoise type of polishes, I had to have this one.  It's SO gorgeous and I'm very happy to have it :D The shimmer is what does it for me. Stunning.

I did 2 coats of Manipulative. The formula was awesome and more opaque than I thought it would be. No issues with dry time either. This polish is quite magical in formula!

This polish is literally off the chain. I'm dying. Masquerade is a dark green jelly base with shifty, duochrome shimmer that flashes from pinkish-purple to gold. This was a limited edition release in 2013. As you see, I had to have it. This is as gorgeous on the nail as it is in the bottle.

I did 3 coats of Masquerade, I probably could of done 4. Since this is discontinued I think next time I'll layer it over a dark green pair of undies. Application was smooth and had no issues. Dry time was awesome for a jelly. Can't complain :D

I'd link you to Cult Nails info, but sadly they are no longer in business :[  Guess this makes for a great #flashbackfriday post LOL. Hope you enjoyed these lovely colors as much as I did!

Happy Friday!
I purchased these items with my own money.
