Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed - Swatches and Review

Pin ItHow amazing is that bottle shot?  Toxic Seaweed is from the new "Let's Get Nekkid" collection from Cult Nails.  It is an amazing mishmash of glitter and flakies in a jelly base.

Here is how Maria described this shade:
This was a lab screw up that I loved, but of course had to make some changes to. We gave them a color and they missed the base, but then we added more glitter and brightened it up a bit and we had a Cult winner. I will tell you now, this has the same flake issue as Clairvoyant. So when this one sells out, it will not be coming back. This is truly a limited edition polish - completely out of my control. When it is gone, it is gone. So sad to just think about. But originally when I started Cult Nails, I wanted all colors to be limited edition and always have a rotating stock, so I guess I am getting some of that now. LOL! We are working on sourcing a different ingredient, but I can't make any promises so we are just playing it safe and calling it Limited Edition.

I was so happy when this polish arrived yesterday, I applied it directly over my current mani, Essie Topless and Barefoot.  I applied two coats, giving them an extra minute to dry in between, and topped it off with Revlon's Quick Dry Top Coat, my favorite top coat as of late.  It was completely smooth, no need for a special glitter tamer here!  

Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed is still in stock, so hurry over to http://shop.cultnails.com and pick up yours before its too late!

I can't wait to try this on its own, as well as over other polishes!  What kind of layering combo's do think would work well?
