Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid really is my kind of cool aid! It’s this gorgeous shade of not quite lavender, not quite grey. It’s cool toned, which works perfectly with my skin. Then to keep this from being just another lavender/grey, there is this incredibly delicate shimmer that runs through it. Honestly, I died. It’s a beautiful color that doesn’t look all strangely putty-like with my skin tone. You know what I’m talking about – if a color is too grey it looks sickly and if the color is too lavender it runs the risk of looking like you glued Easter colored Skittles on to your nail.
I was a little hesitant when I applied the first coat of Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid because it was slightly chalky and extremely thin. However, it dried in under five minutes so I was happy with that. I slapped on a second coat and it came to life right then and there – I could see what the hype was. Two medium thin coats and this color was completely shining and WINNING for me.
The shots below are in the shade and sunlight. In the shade shot it looks pretty and very mellow, but once you put it in the sun it just sparkles. It dazzles. It left me breathless! I love that the color held up in the sun. You know how it is sometimes – some colors look all hot and awesome in the shade but once out in the sun they get all washed out and pathetic looking. Not with Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid!
