Cult Nails Hypnotic Collection – Part 3
I hope everyone is having a good Monday so far, I have today off so I’m having a great day already! I have a few errands to run, but then I’ll be spending the rest of my afternoon swatching and having a Supernatural marathon of season 6. ^_^ Supernatural is one of my favorite shows, so I’m catching up on the previous season before I see what happens in season 7.
Last but certainly not least, we’re at part 3 of my Cult Nails Hypnotic collection swatches (you can see Part 1 [HERE] and Part 2 [HERE]). Today we’re looking at In A Trance, I think this one might be my favorite out of the four polishes. Keep reading and you’ll quickly see why.
I used Sally Hansen Nail Quencher Hydrating base coat for each of today’s’ swatches. Clicking the images will bring you to the original sized photos.
In A Trance
In A Trance is an absolutely gorgeous olive green polish with a golden shimmer. As Nicole said to me the other day, this is such a ME color. I could probably live with only painting my nails with olive green and seafoam hued polishes forever. This polish was a breeze to work with, the formula was very smooth and spreadable. I used two coats.
Here’s a macro shot. I love that the golden micro-shimmer stays visible no matter what type of lighting you’re in. Click this baby for some ultimate eye-candy. ^_^
In A Trance + Hypnotize Me
Here’s one coat of Hypnotize Me layered over two coats of In A Trance, I did use Seche Vite top coat because Hypnotize Me dries dull. You can read a more full review of Hypnotize Me on Part 1 of my Hypnotic collection posts. This layering combo didn’t really do much for me, the contrast of green on top of green left me feeling meh.
Here’s the macro shot on this one. I honestly think that In A Trance is too pretty to be layered with anything else.
I really enjoyed the entire Hypnotic collection, but for me the stand out color is In A Trance (green lover here, I’m a little biased ). It’s a tie for second place with Awakening and Enigmatic, I honestly can’t decide which of the two I love more! The formula on the three I just mentioned was fantastic, smooth and buttery. The only one I can’t see everyone loving is Hypnotize Me, especially if you’re not a fan of thick glitter polishes.
