Spring Awakening


While watching Fashion Star last night I decided to do my nails. Didn't I just say yesterday that I need to not do my nails so late at night? Will I ever learn? Actually I am really loving the manicure I created last night. It is super simple. I received these gold flakes almost a year ago and used them only one. I finally have been playing around with them more and am loving them! So much so that I ordered a wholesale lot of these to put on the site. I'm not sure when I will add them, but I am hoping to add an entire nail art section. What do you guys think? I know Juan is probably not wanting that, but I MIGHT. We'll see. My first priority is the polish and creating brand recognition. I want you to open a magazine and see Cult Nails in there! I want to focus on creating a remover and hand cream etc... So many things to do!  One step at a time. 

Anyway, I just used tweezers to pick up the flakes and place them on my nails while my nails were still wet and then I gently pressed down. I just did a line going down the side of my nails on each nail. I contemplated a different design on each nail, but once I did one nail, I knew all the other nails needed to look the same.

I'm wearing Awakening on my nails. Awakening is a jelly creme. Meaning it applies sheer and builds to opacity. It gives the polish such an amazing depth and shine. I haven't worn this in a while. I forgot how much I love this color. As much as I make blues and greens, they just don't always look that amazing on me. But this one walks the line because the color is a bit darker and so it works perfectly with my skin tone. I am LOVING this look. It is fun, edgy and yet still classy! I'm leaving this on for a few days.




What do you think of this quick manicure? Would you use gold flakes for nail art?
