Cult Nails Charming

     Today's polish is Charming from Cult Nails. I've had this on my wishlist since the Fairy Tale Collection first popped up. I'm a sucker for purple polish! My wonderful secret swap partner gifted this beauty to me.

     On the Cult Nails Blog, Charming is described as  "a sheer purple creme with a purple metallic shimmer that can be used for layering or you can use multiple coats for an opaque look."  I'm  not sure I would consider this a creme. It's more of a sheer jelly polish with a purple/blue/pink shimmer. It has such a glowing and squishy feel to it.

     When I first went to apply this polish, I noticed it was much more sheer than expected. Before I made the dreaded mistake of VNL (visible nail line), I opted to back up and add some underwear. The swatches below are two coats over one thin coat of Essie Play Date. I added a coat of Seche Vite to top it off. 

     I'm not sure if it's my laptop or not, but this is reading more blue than violet. I'll be sure to add natural light picture tomorrow. Stay tuned!

  1. This is one the way to me. Can't wait! Good to know about it needing a color underneath.
