Cult Nails Masquerade

So, it’s been a while, but I’m back(ish)! My posts will probably be more sparing now, but I’m easing into things with a crazy gorgeous polish that is also, um…kind of not available anymore. And I didn’t even realize it until I started this post, so I’m sorry! But it’s a gorgeous polish, and I’d already taken pictures, and maybe if we all ask Cult Nails nicely, they’ll make more of the Masquerade collection? 

Whew. So after that longwinded intro, let me introduce you to Masquerade: 

Three Coats masquerade with one coat Seche Vite on top.

The base color is a deep teal jelly that leans green, and it glows with a purple-green-gold shimmer. Sophisticated with a bite.

I didn’t have any direct sunlight when I was photographing it today, but even in undercast lighting, you can still see the shimmer at play here. It jumps from purple, to pink to gold, and even green. Stunning. 

And now for something completely different. Introducing Masquerade: the animal edition!

I was taking a picture of one of my sloth buddies today, and realized I’d gotten my nails in the shot. And then suddenly I thought, well, why not showcase nail polish and animals all in one? Because yeah, I get really distracted at work and these are the things that go through my head. 

So if you were curious how Masquerade pairs with, say, armadillo, then wonder no longer. 

Priscilla Dilla, the armadillo who loves food more than anything.

And Beetlejuice (my favorite bird in the whole wide world) was a big fan of Masquerade. Okay, so really he was just happy to be getting a neck rub. I’m not even sure if birds can see colors, now that I think about it. Moving on. 

And you might think Big Nose the sloth was just interested in jicama here, but you’re wrong. Really, she was like, ‘dang, those nails are awesome!’ But she thought it really slowly, because, you know, she’s a sloth.

And there you have it! It’s been a while since I’ve written a nail polish post, so I apologize if I’m a bit rusty. But overall I’m a huge fan of this polish! It was my first experience with Cult Nails, and I’m impressed. Went on smoothly with no streaking, dried quickly, and looked gorgeous. It wasn’t quite as durable as some of my other polishes, but not enough to be a dealbreaker for me. 

The Masquerade Collection is currently sold out, but Cult Nails has a lot of other stunning polishes AND free shipping in the US! Check out their website to learn more. 

Until next time, indie polish fans! 🙂
