31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2.0, Day 6: Monochromatic! featuring Cult Cosmetics

Hey guys! I know it's sort of late, but I am still on time for Day 6 of the challenge! Today's prompt is "monochromatic", and I was really stumped, so I decided to go with a simple abstract French tip manicure using some pink polishes from Cult Cosmetics. I fell in love with these polishes, so I just had to swatch them, too - read on for a 15% off coupon to Cult!

So, I know this look might not seem monochromatic, because I included the metallic accent, but this polish actually has a definite pink tone to it (you'll see in my swatch!). Anyway, I started off by painting on two easy coats of Cult Cosmetics Belmont Shore, and then, with a striping brush, I freehanded on Cult Cosmetics Los Feliz and Cult Cosmetics Abbot Kinney. I topped it all off with top coat.

I'm totally loving these colors together, even though this design is really simple. It was nice to see that I am capable of making straight lines without tape, though!

Anyway, I used all Cult Cosmetics polishes for this look, and they all had an incredible formula, so I decided to swatch them as well:

Belmont Shore is a bright, slightly cool toned Barbie pink cream. This one is almost a one coater! I love how smooth and glossy this formula is as well - I definitely didn't need top coat for this one because it was so shiny, but I ended up adding it out of habit. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Abbot Kinney is a gorgeous metallic foil with a pink tinge to it. I didn't expect to love this one as much as I do, but I think it looks fantastic on my nails, and I think it's a great foil for autumn. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Loz Feliz is a gorgeous maroon cream. Again, what a perfect color for fall! I can't get enough of these dark colors for the colder weather, and I will definitely be reaching for this one a lot this season. Shown above is two coats plus top coat.

I love the formula on all of these polishes, and I am glad that the caps can be pulled off for easy application. I can't wait to try out more Cult Cosmetics polishes. All of these colors can be purchased from Cult Cosmetics for $9.99 USD each, and you can use the code KELLI at checkout for 15% off your entire order!
