Cult Nails Disciplined

Recently, Cult Nails announced their upcoming closure, which prompted me to pull the trigger on a couple things I've had my eye on for a while now.  My top pick from the batch is Disciplined.

Disciplined was described as "a sheer but buildable grey," and I think that's completely accurate.  The first coat is only a subtle veil of color, and if you have a smooth hand with the painting and wanted only a light wash of shimmery tint on your nails, this would be a lovely look.  In 3 coats, it builds to a crelly finish, with plenty of not-quite-teal blue and lavender shimmer sparkles.

The shimmer is present but subtle - when I'm not in bright light or trying to snap a macro pic, it's rather restrained, though not hidden.

The grey here is fairly neutral, neither particularly brown nor blue, and it's sheer enough that you could give it a whirl as a shimmery/smoke topcoat.  Wear was quicker than I'd like, with white edges by the second day, but no chipping issues.

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  I totally love greys with a little something sparkly, and this is no exception.

Where to buy:  Cult is closed, so try blogger sales or ebay.
