I recently decided to plan a week of wearing only Cult Nails polishes – I just felt like it, because I have quite many, but I have somehow neglected them in the past.
One of the polishes I wanted to wear was Charming, which was part of the Fairy Tale Collection. It’s a medium purple, very glossy and soft. I used three coats, because I still don’t like it if nail polish isn’t opaque. I have tried to wear soft shades and jellies at two coats and sheers and what have you, but I just.don’t.like.it.
I had quite some application issues with other Cult Nails polishes (which is mainly the reason I gave up on wearing them), but Charming worked well. I had not complaints!
The Cult Nails polishes usually shrink terribly on me. It’s not the topcoat (I used their own, and various others), because it doesn’t make any difference which one I use. I found that very unfortunate, because for so many other bloggers, Cult Nails polishes eem to work so well. Charming didn’t shrink too much, so I have hope. Maybe as the polish brand comes from Florida, the polishes work better in sunny weather?
I decided to embrace the purple. You know that is difficult for me, so please be proud! I chose shoes from Voltan, which are super cool and a bit old-fashioned. I think they are pretty awesome, but I can imagine my taste is not for everyone.
The pants are those wollen pants from Banana Republic, which add a couple of kilos, yes, but they are also amazingly comfortable and warm. If I have the choice between loosing a bit of my behind to cold or adding a couple of kilos by keeping me warm, I will choose to wear these pants again. Warmth before beauty!
The blue cardigan is from Montego. I have been wearing it a lot, it is soft and easy to iron, plus it’s navy, which fits so many other clothes of mine. The coolest part of this outfit is definitely the blouse, which has a crooked line of buttons and a high collar that offers you various ways of wearing it. I like it best open. The blouse is from Cora Kemperman, I think this may have been my first piece from her.
To top it all off, I’m wearing dark purple eyeliner from Inglot. The rest of the make-up is invisible thanks to the blinding sunlight… I can’t wait for the sun to be a bit less prude and come out to play a bit more often. I miss my Vitamin D.
