By the way, La Cita is pretty much a 2-coater as is Avalon. Pale Hollywood Hills is sheer so plan on three coats for full coverage. You can pick up these babies and many others at CultCosmetics.com.

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.

My “String Theory” mani using Cult Cosmetics lacquers!

I have seen doticures and stringy mani designs all over the ‘Net and Instagram in the last year. I’ve done the doticures but thought these shades from Cult Cosmetics would be fun to experiment on this fun modern art idea. I call this one “String Theory”!

String Theory! The bottle I'm holding here is Avalon. The white base is El Porto and the coral red is Laguna.

Shades I used were: Laguna, El Porto and Avalon. All marvelous formulas on their own I might add! Let me also say you can create your mani like this using any combo of shades. I thought this one would be fun for a summery look.
Here is Laguna, El Porto and Avalon. Great shades for your summer nail art creations!

By the way, in case you didn’t know, this is the definition of string theory…the scientific kind! In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings.

I topped it all off with a clear topcoat to seal the deal. I know. You’re asking, “…oy, I bet the cleanup is a B&@*%! Nope. Just take a cosmetic swab and gently, don’t overdo it, swab on petroleum jelly around the cuticle area before you begin your stringing. On that note, to accomplish the stringing of your polish, dab on a few drops, I used about 5, onto a piece of foil. Let dry to stickyness until you can stab a dotting tool and the drying polish pulls up in thin strings, I used one provided to me my Cult Cosmetics! Lightly pull the strings of polish across the surface of the nail. It may take a bit of practice but it’s not difficult at all. Take your clean swab and dip into a bit of polish remover. Swipe any bit of stringed polish on your cuticle or finger. It will most likely already be dry and it comes off without any mess. Easy!

Now that I’m not afraid of doing this look, I’m planning on some chocolate confections looks for fall!

Summery surprise in my BlackBox!

Summery surprise in my BlackBox!

Ocean blue hues inspired the beautiful PCH (or Pacific Coast Highway in case you’re not familiar with the gorgeous coast of Cali). I grew up in California and although I don’t miss the busier, more congested locations of the sunny State, I do have fond memories of the temperate climate, stunning coast and ohhh, the shopping!

Also included in my box was the coral creme polish called Avalon, which Cult Cosmetics says is “…inspired by the styles of the Hollywood DJ scene…”, but when I saw the name on the bottle I immediately thought of the quaint city of Avalon on Catalina Island. I’ve only been there once but it’s Mediterranean style and laid back atmosphere is hard to forget. This delicate but not understated coral one-coater is stunning. Swatches coming soon.

The pleasant surprise was this beautiful palette by BH Cosmetics. It contains 16 nicely pigmented eyeshadows (both matte and shimmer) and 4 generous face powders, including a highlighter, bronzer, peachy blush and a neutral tan. A perfect combo for that sun-kissed look. The eyeshadows range from a pearl cream highlighter, to deep blues, teals, greens and browns. The whole beachey package is heavy and well made, with magnets for securing each flap, and a nice mirror. The only issue I have with the palette is the magnets are very strong and it’s difficult to keep the whole trio open without it closing itself back up again, all on it’s own. I ended up placing an object between the creases to keep it open. But I think maybe in time these may loosen up.

The BlackBox by Cult Cosmetics of California is a monthly subscription service. I’m not going to quote the monthly fee because it may change by the time someone reads this later on.

You can find more info and pricing at http://www.cultcosmetics.com. Cult Cosmetics polishes are Vegan, 5-FREE, never Animal-Tested and are proprietary One&Doneā„¢ single-coat formulas.

Here is a quote from Cult: “One & Doneā„¢ promise: CULT makes a polish that goes on full and thick the very first time. Too many nail polishes require 2-3 watery applications before you get full coverage. Not CULT – it goes on onceā€¦and you’re done!”
I can verify their polishes are amazing! The formulas are a dream to work with.
