Cult Nails Scandalous Polish



Cult Nails Scandalous

After seeing this beautiful polish swatched on this post on Also Known As blog, I had to have it. However it looks different on me! I still love it. It is a jelly-ish, pale orange polish. This is 4 coats topped with Seche Vite. It actually reminds me of Chanel's Orange Fizz, or its dupe, Essence What Do U Think? I had the Essence polish (which is a tiny bottle!). It recently went bad on me, so I consider this its replacement. 

Wear on this polish is amazing. I am on day 3 and only have a bit of tip wear, even after a weekend of kitten rescue, cleaning, and cooking.

Do you know what polish didn't fare well? Butter London's Disco Biscuit. I was SO disappointed in this polish, I didn't even take photos for the blog. It's a beautiful jelly glitter color, but it was chipping within a day, even after the most careful manicure. Then because it chipped, I had to remove it, which was a huge pain and takes like 20 minutes of scrubbing to get it off. I just swapped it on Makeup Alley's site, I couldn't bear to look at it any more.

By the way, did you know throwing away nail polish in the trash is illegal? I am about to get rid of 10 dried-up polishes, but the chemicals in them make them a special disposal case. Each state/county has hazardous waste disposal drop-off sites, so do a search for one in your area. That is what I am doing!


  1. oh my gosh, i didn't know that. good to know.

  2. That's such a pretty color!
    I have Butter London's Disco Biscuit as well. Such a lovely color! I've only worn it once, so I don't remember how long it lasted on my nails though.

  3. That color is so incredibly stunning for summer - love love! :)


Please add to the conversation! I'd love to hear from you.
