First Ever Cult Nails Haul!

Hello Loves! (Just as a warning this is going to be picture heavy!)

Today I am going to show you what I purchased from Cult Nails!

As most of you know, or at least anyone who is in the Nail Polish world knows that it is Cult Nails Second Anniversary. A 2nd Anniversary trio was put out for sale so I decided what the heck I'm going to purchase it! Before I get into the haul though, let me just give you some background info..

Cult Nails is a 4-free as well as Cruelty Free nail polish brand. Maria (owner/founder) is located in Florida. I LOVE supporting Florida brands.. since I live in Flo-rida as well. Funny enough where the brand is located is DIRECTLY on the other side of the state, you could draw a straight line and connect the two. (the little things in life) Enough about that.

I purchased a total of 5 polishes and Nail are Rhinestones. 

I went back and forth for probably 4 hours before I finally settled on purchasing anything. What the hell right? Mine as well, I just dwindled my nail polishes to less than half of what they used to be and I've wanted to try a couple of her polishes anyways.

I decided to go ahead and purchase the 2nd Anniversary Trio which retails for $36 but it currently on sale for $30. I'm not sure when the price goes up to $36, but I think it is within the next few days. 
There is a little treat that comes with purchasing the trio though. From the website itself ;;
*Free gift will be either a pair of cubic zirconia earrings, a pair of 1/2 carat genuine diamond earrings (2 pairs will be given away), OR 1 pair of 1 carat genuine diamond earrings (1 pair will be given away).  FREE GIFT ONLY AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME, WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!  Earrings will not be replaced if imperfect, damaged, lost, stolen, or missing.
So 3 lucky ladies are going to be getting REAL diamond earrings! Holy crap, that is 1. absolutely generous of her to do! and 2. pretty freaking amazing and it makes opening the box from her even more exciting. Even for those who don't get the real ones, there is still going to be a pair of CZ earrings. In my opinion, it's still a win win.

When I received the box and opened it, you can tell that they definitely take care of their polishes when shipping. Each one was individually wrapped in paper and it had a sticker on it with the Cult Nails logo and the name of the polish. You can definitely tell that she takes pride in not only creating her polishes but as well as the packing and shipping aspect of it all. Along with each individually wrapped polish there were cotton balls to help cushion as well. This was probably one of the best packaged things I have ever seen.
Swatches are under the bottle shots / descriptions

The polishes in the trio are
Tempest - High gloss white nail polish -2 Coats

Blaze - Gold and Copper glitter (Does this remind anyone else of Gryiffindor from Harry Potter?!) 3 Coats (the only reason I used 3 coats is because I smudged it and did 3 to even it out. You can get away with 2 coats though)

Fetish - Black with a wax looking finish to it. -2 Coats

All 3 of these are absolutely GORGEOUS. I've been wanting a white polish for a while so I am pretty excited for it! As for the other two, I am equally stoked for them! 

I also purchased;;
Alter Ego - sheer top coat that casts a green and gold tinge over any polish you put it over. This is also limited edition ($12) I LOVE top coats like this, so I am excited to try it out over different polishes.
1 coat over ORLY Liquid Vinyl

Mazo - Sheer Nude with gold shimmer. (This is on last chance for  $7) I've been drawn to nude polishes lately and I decided on this one and am pretty excited about it! 3 Coats



The last thing I added to my order, just because were the Multi-Colored Nail Rhinestones. I thought they would be cute to jazz up a manicure!

So, what do you think?! I personally think I fared pretty well considering CN is a Independent brand. In total with tax included I spent $55.12.  I wanted to get Nevermore, BUT I figured since there was already a black polish in the set, I didn't need another one.. even though I still want it like a crazy person.

These polishes definitely exceeded my expectations! I am so pleased that I decided to go ahead and purchase these!

    If you are talking about blogging wise, what I typically do it write down my blogs on paper in a notebook before I ever type them on my blog itself. I feel that it is easier to do it that way because there are less distractions when writing in a notebook then on paper. If I type online, I get distracted VERY easily, but I I WRITE in my notebook, I can crank out quite a few blog posts in a night! To get myself in the right mind so to say, is I put music on and listen to it as I write, I find that is the most calming thing for me to do. It's different for everyone as well. I could also put a movie that I love on, yet know by heart and watch it and write, then again, I am good at multi-tasking at the same time. So for how you were to clear your mind it could be different. I find writing in paper and listening to music or a movie or Tv shows helps me.

    I hope that helps you! xx

  5. Really like the Mazo colour! You've made me want to do a haul & treat my nails :D I love your blog, im new at this but i have many'a opinions to share - you've inspired me! xxx

  8. There are many different kinds of tools and techniques required to deliver an exceptional SEO India results.
    If the executives promise high traffic then understand you are talking with a non-SEO person.

    This is what professionals do. This gives your name higher credibility and better
    search engine rank. NOW, I don't mean you should just put keyword spam in your footer. This is the best part to ensure complete uniqueness to each of the websites. Some SEO firms focus on content spinning and submitting articles. Second tool for power suite is website auditor. Isn't that something you and your business should be a part
    of. For those of us who are using the internet to make money, we all know that it is absolutely essential to get visitors out to our
    websites. So, most move slowly when deciding on who becomes the company's SEO. However, in general, SEO services involve using standard and compliant coding. Moving your hosting to a nearby country such as Canada or an offshore Caribbean host may provide the same latency times, but reduce the risk of having your website brought down by a mistake. Regardless of whether you like it, love it, or hate it, social media has become a major player in the SEO world, and it is a costly mistake to ignore it. This was the beginning of the thought process for my new business. As of now, Thomas Lenarz has helped many people get the information on reputed SEO companies. Today, it is necessary that you scout the market for the best SEO Host that can help you achieve this. SEO is becoming the most rewarding career nowadays. You need the keyword and phrase in both title and description. Never post a half edited article, and never settle for less than your best.
