Cult Nails Charlatan

Last but not least is Cult Nails Charlatan! This is a seriously gorgeous polish that is described as a "sheer top coat that completely changes your existing manicure by adding a fantastic glow that shifts from magenta to violet." I would say that Charlatan has a pink base with glass flecks that shift from pink to blue to purple. It's very pretty and exceedingly vibrant in real life-- my pictures don't do it justice.

Charlatan, like the other top coats from this collection, is very easy to work with. Here I have used one coat over American Apparel Hassid. The multichromatic shift is highly evident in person-- although my pictures show a lot of blue, you can definitely see the pink in real life. I'm glad that I was at least able to catch some of the purple shift in my photos. This is stunning in real life. I think it would amazing over a purple or a blue.

Glad I'm able to get this post off! I'm feeling very accomplished tonight (in part because I left work a little early): I decorated my sugar cookies, wrapped presents and even got to play with my new stamping plates! (Yes, I got stamping plates-- from my work Secret Santa! Awesome! I'm so excited to play with them!)


  1. A glassfleck topcoat, how cool is that! Go you for being so productive :)

    1. Charlatan is so pretty. I really need to try it over some other colors!
