Neptune’s Bubbles mani inspired by Cult Cosmetics lacquers!

I was thinking about the cool clear ocean this morning, naturally while I was looking for some nail art inspo. I pulled out a few faves from my Cult Cosmetics collection and BOOM! A bubble mani featuring some cool blues. One of the quickest ways to take your mani from “meh” to “Oh My! is with nail dotting tools. Say hello to my undersea mani I call, Neptune’s Bubbles! Not that Neptune has anything to do with our ocean. But the blues, it’s all about blue! Did you know?…”Neptune’s atmosphere is made up of hydrogen, helium and methane. The methane in Neptune’s upper atmosphere absorbs the red light from the sun but reflects the blue light from the Sun back into space. This is why Neptune appears blue.” It’s a gassy planet, but hey, it’s blue!

I'm pretty stoked about how my seaside mani turned out. I called it, "Neptune's Bubbles"! Over each nail I used the iridescent flaky topper called Hollywood Forever. Pinky nail is dark and shimmery House of Blues, middle finger is a creme, Catalina and pointer finger I used The Roxy. The accent nail (my inspo for Neptune's Bubbles) I used all four with a dotting tool.

Here are the polishes used in today’s mani.

House of Blues, sorry, no link to this beauty. I couldn’t find it on the web site so it may be discontinued. If you do find it let me know! It’s a gorgeous cobalt blue shimmer, and a one coater. Just like the two cremes here, each only require one coat and super glossy.

Catalina, described as, “Catalina is like a vacation to your favorite island. On a warm day, feel free to wear this bright and dreamy blue – and nothing else!”

The Roxy, described as, “The Roxy is the new language of LA sass! This vibrant, feminine hue can take your mani from gentle to intense, depending on your mood. Name inspired on the renamed venue in Sunset blvd . Name inspired by the legendary nightclub on the Sunset strip. Bob Marley & the Wailers, The Ramones, RHCP and Gwen Stefani are some of the amazing musicians who played at The Roxy.”

Hollywood Forever, described as, “Hollywood Forever is a light-shattering polish for next-dimension nails. Its opalescent glow and shining shades go on like magic over any base color.”

Gee, now I’m thinking of some other color combos for this cute look. How about you, have you tried a bubble dotted mani? By the way, these are available now for $12.50 ea, and Cult Cosmetics also carry polish kits, nail art tools and more!

Funky dry marble with a great Cult Cosmetics duo!

This will be short and sweet, but I had to share with you this delightful couple. I love using El Porto, a perfect white canvas for any nail art. And I’ve been wanting to do another water marble anyway. Here I used this plush purply periwinkle called Catalina.

Cult Cosmetics polishes are so easy to use for nail art. They are a dream to work with and so glossy!

All you need to do is lay a medium coat of your base color then immediately drip on a few dots of your marbling color, then lightly swirl, with a fine dotting tool, brush or stick. If you make a mistake, no worries. Reprint when dry and start over! Finish with a clear topcoat when your colors are totally dry. Voila! Here are the two colors I used. I’ve be asked to post a tutorial for this look so I promise you when I get time, I’ll edit this post and display the photos here on this blog post.

Catalina and El Porto. Yes, those are some Morning Glories from around my house. I've got tons of them! :-)

A Watercolor Frenchie using polishes from Cult Cosmetics!

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.

Polishes used for this watercolor Frenchie, from top then left to right: PCH, Catalina, Hollywood Forever, Breakwater and El Porto.

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!

El Porto for a great beginning!

El Porto for a great beginning!

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

I love this shimmery deep teal! It's actually more like a metallic.

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!

Hollywood Forever. So many ideas for this one! I can't wait to use it over a deep dark shade!

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.
