Hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter weekend, even if you don't celebrate the holiday. We had gorgeous weather here in Seattle and my parents were in town visiting, so I've been pretty busy! I also didn't have time to paint my nails for Easter, which is kind of lame, but it is what it is.
Tonight I have one of the Cult Nails 2nd Anniversary polishes for you-- Tempest! Cult Nails describes Tempest as a "pure white, high gloss polish perfect for a manicure and great for nail art!" and this is pretty spot on. I actually have played around with this for nail art (stamping, specifically) and it worked well for that. They say this is almost a one coat white, but more on that later. I found that Tempest was a bit streaky when I was applying it and I ended up needing to use about 3 coats (depending on the nail) to get the coverage I was looking for. Overall, though, it was fairly easy to apply and was really nicely pigmented without being super thick.

Now, I love Cult Nails, but I couldn't make this a one (or one and a half) coat white. Is it me?! I think my application technique needs work, because in general this was a great white polish so I think with some practice I could make this work. However, Tempest is very white and I don't know how often I'll be reaching for this as a full manicure.
