Review: Cult Nails - My Kind of Cool Aid

I've been really excited about R3 Daily's brand of polish Cult Nails. Seriously, it's rare (I think) to read about the genesis of a nail polish company, from conceptualization through to completion. It's such a dream come true and I really hope you've been following this blog and brand like I have.

Now for my first taste: My Kind of Cool Aid

Didn't see the stray hair on my pinky until it was too late.
To be honest, when I first saw this color on the R3 Daily blog my first thought was "Ok... not the dream color I would have expected a fellow polish and beauty blogger to start a line with." Then I thought about it - I'm not sure I would know what type of color to start a line with. So I really can't judge based on that. As a polish (pretending there's an entire array of polishes backing this one up), My Kind of Cool Aid is FANTASTIC!!!

The color is a grayish purple blue. There is what seems to be shimmer in it but it's so subtle this is more like a cream or something different entirely. I'm not convinced the shade is unique, but the finish is interesting.

Two coats. Applied like a dream. I even like the brush!

Here's where I'm freaking - my nails actually failed before the polish! This wore like iron! I had it over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped it with a (tainted... so sorry MKOCA) layer o Seche Vite. This sucker stayed put!

Bottom Line
This one is worth the $10 for wear, even if the shade didn't seem like it's that unique. I hope that Cult Nail's other polishes wear as well as this one. If they do, then I'm hooked!
