Cult Nails Love at First Sight

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted this yet--I'm a little shocked, honestly. Today I have a polish from the now defunct brand (something I'm still sad about) Cult Nails Love at First Sight, which was originally released in May 2013 as part of the Dance All Night collection. My husband bought this collection for me for my 30th birthday and I wore Love at First Sight on my toes when I gave birth to my boys. And then I wore it a year later as my manicure for their first birthday! This swatch is actually from October 2014, so I was really late photographing it anyway! Whoops!

Love at First Sight is a bright lilac purple creme, with a slight hint of duskiness to it. Now, usually I don't like purples with pink tones to them, but something about this one is just stunning and I love it. As per the standard with Cult Nails, this went on easily and smoothly and I only needed two coats. Gotta love that!

Artificial light (flash):

This is one of those polishes I love so much that I actually bought a back-up when Cult Nails was having their going out of business sale, which is honestly something I never do! But this polish has a special meaning to me and I love the color (plus the sale price) so it was a no-brainer. This polish is actually still available for sale at Harlow & Co, and thanks to the exchange rate you actually get a bit more of a discount if you are ordering from the US.
