I love watercolors. I love French manis. I figured, why not try a mashup?! Since I just received some polishes from Cult Cosmetics, I put two and two together and came up with a pretty little twist on a French manicure with some splashes of color. Here are the polishes used for this manicure.
The formulas on all of these are amazing on their own, and super fun to work with for nail art. The white base I used here, El Porto, glides on opaque in one coat. I’d pretty much have to say if you’re collecting Cult Cosmetics polishes, you MUST own this one!
First, add clear top coat over white. Then for the watercolor effect, I used one color after another, by placing a drop or two on a glass dish. Using a small brush, dab small amounts of chosen color where you want it, then quickly dab brush while it still has a bit of polish on it into a bit of polish remover. Dab excess drips onto paper towel, then dab paint splotches. First color I used was PCH
Then continue with your other colors. Here are the rest of the shades used plus a little topcoat of the iridescent flakies topcoat, Hollywood Forever!
What an easy way to do a French mani without being tedious!
One last note (and be prepared to see more fun nail art using amazing polishes from Cult. Every one of these shades I used today are opaque in one coat, but you can use two if that’s how you roll! Each one is glossy but using a good clear topcoat for extra longevity in your busy life is helpful! 🙂 No staining in any of their polishes that I’ve experienced. See the info below and take a gander at all their boxed sets and individual polishes available.
Cult lacquers are premium, 5-FREE, Vegan, cruelty-free single coat polishes and makeup products. None of their polishes are animal tested and they are made in California, USA.
These products were sent to me for review and all opinions are my own.
