Cult Nails Power Thief

My first Cult Nails polish!  Can we all share my excitement for a minute?


Thanks to my local girlie, Marisa, from Polish Obsession (shout out NYC bloggers!) I was lucky enough to literally get my hands on Power Thief.


I knew I wanted Power Thief from swatches I've seen, but in my head I had always just logged it as a shimmery brown, which I always love.  However, this is waaaay more than that.  What you can't see and what I couldn't really photograph is that the shimmer is blue!  A blue shimmer in a yummy mocha creme base?  Can you say delicious?


The formula, however, was just okay.  A tad on the thicker side, it made up for itself with a fairly user friendly brush.  Since this is my first Cult Nails, I don't know if that's the standard consistency or just for this polish.  Regardless, the formula wasn't horrific enough for me never to use this polish again.  The color is just too ridiculously beautiful!


This is three coats.



Marisa, I'm sending a virtual hug your way for the opportunity to try this little guy out.  Thank you, girly!

What do you ladies think?  What other Cult Nails polishes have you tried or would like to try?

  4. I've never bought one myself (this was a gift, like I wrote), but from what I've seen they tend to have sales all the time.

  5. I'd say a vaguely similar polish would be Essie Mochacino but the color is slightly lighter and the shimmer is certainly not blue.

  7. This color is so pretty. I can't say I'll never own a Cult Nails because the polish choices are so pretty. I do know they have good sales often so if I want to buy, I'll plan accordingly.

  8. There are a few that I also think are cool, but I'll wait for a major blowout sale to buy.

  9. Yayyy!!!  Sending a virtual hug back ;0).  The formula for mine was very good.  I wonder if it was just your bottle? Hmmm...  Glad you like it though.  It looks great on you!
