Here I was swatching the new Cult Nails collection, when I get to Flushed, not surprisingly I couldn't justify taking it off! Needless to say my swatch fest ceased and Nail Art began.
Flushed is a limited edition color that was recently released in the Behind Closed Doors collection. It is described as follows:
"Flushed is true "Blurple" (blue/purple) buildable sheer with an intense purple/pink shimmer effect that appears to glow through the polish." - Cult Nails
Application was flawless, which is usual for Cult Nails polishes. I used three thin coats but full opacity can probably be achieved with two. This is without topcoat.
I added some stamping using butter LONDON's Lillibet's Jubillee and stamping plate SE20. Lillibet's Jubilee is described as follows:
"A silvery, lavender metallic foil, heavily infused with holographic glitter" - butter LONDON
Flushed has so much depth the pictures don't do it justice! In some lights it leans more blue than others and you can really see the sparkle!
Yesterday morning I added butter LONDON's Frilly Knickers over the stamping for some sparkle.
As you can see from the photo Flushed has worn beautifully. I often get tip wear the same day I apply polish, even when wrapping the tips, and this manicure is going on three days with no tip wear!
Cult Nails polishes can be purchased for $10 here.
butter LONDON polishes can be purchased for $14 here
As of today Flushed is currently sold out, I have no information as to its return.
