Cult Nails Haul - Hypnotic Collection

Morning!

Sorry this post is so late today! I was having a slow start this morning, but now that I’ve had my iced coffee and fruit salad I’m good to go. :-D Continuing with the Cult Nails Hypnotic collection, I’ve got Enigmatic to show you all today. Enigmatic is a lovely brown based purple shimmer, I don’t have anything quite like it in my collection. And I have a LOT of purple shimmers. ;-)

I also wanted to say how much I LOVE the Cult Nails packaging, you can see the contents of my latest purchase in the picture above. Each shipment of Cult Nails polishes is made with recyclable and/or reusable materials. I love that each of my packages came with a large handful of cotton balls that I can use for removing my manis. :-)

I used Sally Hansen Nail Quencher base coat for these swatches. No top coat was used unless otherwise specified.

Enigmatic is a lovely medium purple polish with tons of shimmer. What makes this different from all of my other purple shimmers is the brown leaning base that it has. You can see it a little bit here if you enlarge the photos, but it’s especially noticeable on my macro shot of the polish. I had no problems with applying Enigmatic, it was thin but spreadable. This is three coats with no top coat, but I could have stopped at two. And just like Awakening, Enigmatic dried quickly and incredibly glossy.

Here’s a picture of Enigmatic that was taken with my camera flash. I love how the purple really comes out to play with flash and in the sunlight. You get the hints of the pink shimmer that you really can’t see indoors (enlarge this one for a better look).

Macro shot, I just love the flecked shimmer in this one. :-D I think Enigmatic is the perfect name for it because it’s a bit of a chameleon! You can definitely see the brown base around the edges on my nail.

Here I layered one coat of Hypnotize Me over three coats of Enigmatic, I used Seche Vite as my top coat. I think is my favorite layering combination out of the three other fall colors from the Hypnotic collection. The luminescent glitter in Hypnotize Me really pops against the darker hue in Enigmatic and again I can only describe the look as ‘glowing’. *swoons*

And here’s the macro shot that you positively need to enlarge. :-D


Final Thoughts:

Once again I had no issues with this polish and I’m happy to add Enigmatic to my stash. I think this color layered with Hypnotize Me is stellar, I’ll have to try it as a pedicure in the near future.
