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! :-)

“Going Native in PCH” Cult Cosmetics Lacquer NOTD

“Going Native in PCH” ☺️ Today’s tribal look was a fun one. I sat down with three polishes from Cult Cosmetics not having any idea what look I was going for. I went for a nouveau tribal look!

I love this holographic topcoat Coachella! It's glorious over PCH.

Color Club Art Club Striping lacquer in White, El Porto, PCH and Coachella!


I began by using this perfect formula, cool toned green shimmer in PCH, white El Porto, and holo topcoat Coachella by Cult Cosmetics. Coachella is a lightweight holo topcoat that is perfect for adding linear holo sparkle to any color. El Porto is a highly glossy pigmented white. A perfect undie or gorgeous on it’s own!

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!

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! πŸ™‚ 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.
