Cult Nails After Glow

Sorry for the lack of posts this week! After being organized for one full week... I couldn't repeat it! Just one of those weeks, I guess. And tonight is the series finale for Fringe (one of the best shows on TV!) and I just sobbed my way through the last ten minutes-- we're talking ugly crying here.

Tonight I have one of the polishes from the Cult Nails Behind Closed Doors collection-- After Glow. Sexy! This is a gorgeous metallic copper polish, described as a "deep copper with intense pink shimmer." In the bottle, After Glow has duochrome flash-- the pink shimmer shifts to gold.

I found the formula on After Glow to be a little on the thin side, and it goes on fairly sheer in the first coat. But it builds up nicely-- I used three coats here. I think it's really pretty, but I felt the pink shimmer was a little lost on the nail, and there definitely doesn't seem to much of a color shift either. So this was somewhat of a disappointment after seeing it in the bottle, but I still think it's stunning. Very flashy and shiny in person.

Ugh, not a fan of my photos here. Sorry about that! I need to reswatch this. You can at least the flashes of pink in the polish!

  1. I liked this polish quite a bit more than I was expecting. It's such a pretty color.
