Simple Grunge Nail Art with Cult Cosmetics

Happy Sunday, everyone! Sundays are my favorite time to relax and be lazy, so today I painted a super easy grungy manicure to show you guys, using some polishes from Cult Cosmetics.

To get this look, I started with a base of Cult Breakwater, a gorgeous medium purple creme. Once that was dry, I wiped most of the polish off of Cult El Porto and Cult DTLA's brushes, and swiped them onto my nail for a grungy effect. I topped it all off with top coat to smooth out the design.

Super easy, right? I love this design because it comes out looking different every time I try it. I think it looks a bit like tweed, doesn't it? This is actually the same technique that I used in my popular grungy flower nail art.

It helps to pick colors that are very opaque, for this technique. I chose all Cult polishes because they're pretty much fully opaque in one coat!

For those of you who are wondering - I know I have been slacking on the nail art front lately! I had to take a break from the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2.0 because there was so much to swatch for fall/winter, but I will be getting back to it this or next week, I promise you! So that's why I made this simple nail art look to hold you guys over until then ;)

Here are the polishes I used for this manicure. You can purchase them from the Cult Cosmetics online shop for $9.99 USD each - don't forget to use the code KELLI for 15% off your entire order!

These polishes were provided for my honest review.
