Cult Nails Manipulative

Morning dears! 


So yesterday I spent the whole day moving and unpacking. It's so tiring! My nails also suffered a little damage, I got a few chips so I'm sporting nubbins again! 


This week is going to be Cult Nails Divas and Drama collection week! I'm going to be posting both swatches and nail art using all of the shades in this awesome collection. 


First up I am going to show you Manipulative. I'm starting the week off with this shade because my awesome friend Goisa over at Life in Color has started something called Monday Blues where we showcase a blue colour on Mondays!

Manipulative is a dusty blue opaque creme with a hint of green and a gorgeous subtle shimmer that really stands out in the sunshine. You all know I am a hug fan of blues and this is no exception.

Maria was inspired to create this colour when she was vacationing with her family, she says, "We went to a local beach and the water was this amazing milky blue color that kept showing hints of green. When the sun would hit the water just right, this amazing shimmer throughout the water was noticeable. I must have taken a hundred photos of the water and as soon as we returned home, I set out to replicate it in a polish."


I think she completely captured shimmering water. This colour really is breathtaking. I used 2 coats for these pictures and had no trouble with the formula. It was beautiful and was almost a one coater, just needed the second to even everything out.

For my nail art for this polish I grabbed some of my black rhinestones and started placing them in a line on about a third of the way in my nail.

I love how edgy the rhinestones look against the polish. I wanted to do some nail art that captured the name, Manipulative. I felt that something edgy would represent this well.

Even though I loved how this looked I got a sneaky idea. I grabbed Sneeze Breeze and striping brush and went to work.

I'm loving this so much!! I feel like Sneeze Breeze was such a perfect compliment to Manipulative.

Manipulative is a beautiful blue that is 4-free and cruelty free. It can be purchased from Cult Nails for $10 USD. I strongly encourage you to go buy the beauty! 

What do you think of Manipulative? Do you like wearing these kind of dusty blues?

Do you like my edgy nail art?
