Birthday Polish: Cult Nails I Got Distracted

One of the first indie brands that really caught my attention when I became a nail polish hoarder enthusiast, was Cult Nails. It was like a nail blogger fairy tale with Maria starting out as a blogger and then working her behind off to create an amazing brand. That was the initial appeal for me until I saw all of her amazing polishes. I mean, seriously…they are amazing.  So when I got my lovely birthday gift from Frosso and I realized it was Cult Nails I Got Distracted, well I was beyond excited. A little funny story about this package: a week before I received it, I had seen this on twitter and facebook:

When I saw it, I thought to myself: “Wow that is so cool and so pretty!!!” Imagine my surprise when I opened up the package and realized it had been my package that I had seen. hahaha! I love it. Frosso is one of the very first bloggers I met when I started my blog and I just adore her blog. In fact, she is having a really fantastic giveaway right now to celebrate her One Year Blogiversary so make sure that you go check it out.

Now, let me show you the beauty that is I Got Distracted:

This is two coats without a top coat. It dries super gritty and kind of matte, but I find the texture really interesting! I know that Frosso gets a kick out of me oohing and ahhing over glitter nail polish because I was such an insane glitter hater a few months ago. But really…I had to come to my senses because who wouldn’t go nuts for this? It’s absolutely gorgeous.

I decided to also show you how it looks with some top coat:

Ohmygoshthisisgorgeous. What else can I say? I also received a bottle of Wicked Fast top coat in my lovely package. I tend to alternate between using Seche Vite and Poshe so I was a little cautious about trying a new top coat. Well, let me tell you that it’s fantastic, but it did not work well with this polish on its own. I Got Distracted is one of those thirsty glitters that sucks up top coat like there’s no tomorrow. I had to apply two thick coats of Gelous to completely smooth out this glitter and then I applied Wicked Fast to make it all extra glossy. Here is a bonus super blurry picture so you can see the holo gorgeousness.

So there you have it: my gorgeous birthday polish from the lovely Frosso. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Have you tried Cult Nails yet?
