Cult Nails Nevermore Nail Lacquer, Charlatan and The Deceptive Collection!!

Today I want to show you The Deceptive Collection from Cult Nails. They are a collection five spectacular top coat nail polishes and I'm going to show them to you with the most fabulous one coat black nail lacquer ever, Nevermore. I have so much to say and show you, I'm just so excited that I can't hardly slow down to form the words. What you need to know first is that the Deceptive Collection of nail lacquers is on a preview sale from September 1st, 2012 to September 8th, 2012. You can get all five lacquers for just $40; a 20% savings!  So hurry and do it and then come back and finish reading the post. :)

Let's talk about Nevermore first because it makes such a delicious base for any of the colors in the Deceptive Collection. Nevermore is completely opaque in just one coat. It brushes on perfectly, leaving no stroke marks, and gives brilliant coverage. It is the shiniest black lacquer I've ever seen. Wearing it alone makes me feel so "Hollywood". I never feel as fancy as I do when I'm wearing an awesome black polish. It feels as dressy to me as the standard little black dress. I can't even tell you how much I love this black. It's like the shiniest black vinyl you've ever seen. It doesn't even need a top coat. It's utter perfection in a polish.  Like all Cult Nails lacquers, Nevermore is Big 3 free.

Look how shiny this is!! One coat! And no top coat. While I could use one, I just didn't need to.

In the next picture, I'm holding Cult Nails Happy Ending.  It's a multi-colored flakey glitter that is unlike any that you've seen so far.  It has very different colors.  It's my favorite.  This is a teaser...I'll show you soon.  It's limited edition so you may not want to wait.

And back to the Deceptive Collection...what a great name. If you judge the polish colors by the look in the bottles, you'll be completely deceived as to the colors created when used as a top coat. From left to right, the colors are: Doppleganger, Two Timer, Alter Ego, Deception and Charlatan. They are swatched in the same order on the swatch wheel over Nevermore.

Doppleganger looks white in the bottle but in a super macro shot, you can see the colors that glow in the top coat. It gives a blue glow over Nevermore and even that blue is so incredibly complex, having micro blue, green and pink/red particles.

In the following picture, it is second from the left.

You can see in another super macro picture how the color is made of a very complex mixture of hues.

Pretty.

The second color in the lineup as I have them is Two Timer. It looks gold in the bottle and yet...there is an overwhelming green glow when applied. It's such a beautiful green.

In the next swatch, Two Timer is on the left and Doppleganger is on the right.

Alter Ego is the third in the series. Alter Ego is truly the master deceiver, appearing pink in the bottle and showing it's true personality to be an antiqued bronzey golden green when applied. Surely it tricked you as much as it did me!

It's second from the left in the next picture.

And back to the previous left to right order as in the original pictures.

The fourth color, Deception, looks peach in the bottle. Surprisingly, this color comes out purple when applied.

Deception is the color on the top in the next picture. Charlatan is on the bottom.

Deception is second from the right in the following swatch photo.

The fifth lacquer in the collection is called Charlatan. And it is quite the deceptive nail polish. A vivid pink in the bottle, it is so complex on the nail, flashing pink, purple, fuchsia, and blue.

This is another of the polishes by Cult Nails that should come with the disclaimer that it's dangerous to wear it and drive. It is so stunning and intricate that you can't take your eyes off of it. I have to warn you!! It completely caught me off guard.

I just want to leave you with this photo showing you why you need to be really careful if you wear this polish and get behind the wheel. So much beauty!! So many colors!! Such distraction!! Consider taking a cab.

This collection is full of such fabulously deceptive lacquers. They are complex and beautiful with a perfect finish that is both smooth and shiny. (I'm not wearing a top coat in the pictures.) I've been wearing Nevermore three days and two days with the top coat of Charlatan and I have no chips at all, even with all the constant removal of my invisalign trays. Cult Nails nail polishes have great wear and shine. You can purchase them online.  And don't forget the special sale on the Deceptive Collection this week.

Do you have any Cult Nails polishes?  Which is your favorite?
