Cult Nails Clairvoyant on L.A. Colors Morning Glory

   So last week I finally got to try my treasured Cult Nails Clairvoyant nail polish.  Unicorn Puke, Clairvoyant, call it what you may, it really is a great nail polish.  Mine is the Clairvoyant version bottle from the Super Powers collection.  I actually prefer this as I adore the silver writing on the "regular edition" bottle!  I'm leaving just two pictures out and the rest will be after the jump since they are pretty similar, but I couldn't narrow them down.


   The sun was out really bright when I took these pictures and my camera could barely handle the sparkling rainbow of flake glitter.  It captured the color very well, but it couldn't focus sharply.  Bummer!  These are the colors on my nails:

L.A. Colors Morning Glory, Essie Licorice, Cult Nails Clairvoyant

   First off I have to say that Essie's Licorice surprised me.  In the past I've used it and been fairly "meh" about it's coverage, it took two coats and even then it didn't seen quite perfect.  This time it was a one-coat wonder.  I did apply it carefully, but I don't think my skills have changed that much, so I wonder if it is from using the Orly Bonder basecoat.  Seems to be good stuff.

   Anyway, now I have to give L.A. Colors Morning Glory some love.  This is a color that I picked up on a whim based on the name - after all, it's just another blue-toned purple.  The truth is morning glory flowers are one of my favorites, so when I saw the name I had to buy it (it was cheap!).  But I'm really glad I did because it turns out it's a lovely color.  I chose it for this mani because it seemed to perfectly match the "juice" of Clairvoyant.  When I was painting my nails I almost couldn't cover it with Clairvoyant, though, because it's so deep and shimmery and pretty!  Definitely one I will revisit to wear on it's own.  I will say that it had a slightly runny and watery consistency but I got away with two coats.

   Clairvoyant did end up looking great over Morning Glory, and the shimmer from Morning Glory peeked through all the flakies, but Clairvoyant truly stole my heart layered over the black creme polish.  What can I say, I like it when my flakies stand out sharply!



   Oh, and did I mention that this is just one coat of Clairvoyant?  The flakies are packed in this nail polish and they spread wonderfully.  They also lay smoothly on the nail.  Over the shimmering purple the flakies didn't pop as much, especially not to the camera I was using.  Here is a shot where they aren't in such bright lighting, so you can see they really were visible!


   Alright, one last picture for the road and I'll stop.  Just had to share the flakie love!  Who else managed to grab a bottle of this amazing color?  Are you still looking for it or will you get something else now that every other brand wants to do flakies?

  1. Thank-you! I tend to gravitate towards black and purple nail polishes... getting to wear both PLUS Clairvoyant was pretty great!

  2. Parents can wield the biggest influence over their children by setting a good example
    and discussing smoking, its dangers, and expressing their
    desire for their children not to smoke. Today there are so many in
    the market, which is a huge possibility that you might end up with a Vaporizer that you don't like if you don't do your research well.
    Well, if it is causing one to not get a full night's sleep, it might be.

  3. You will make a profit off of every caller your recruits make and you get
    to decide what percentage you want to take from
    their callers. At least one lamp with an adjustable neck is needed to light yourself correctly.
    I've seen most everything and, like I said, I know about most everything.

  4. The girls rate the men by sing rating cards. 3 Again, a more likely explanation for scrotal
    descent, and one with an experienced and talented masturbator.
    Well, when it actually came to a five-year-old mens sex

  5. The state appellate court had noted that the vilification of masturbation predates the puritan.
    They are very practical toys, especially designed for all the great feedback and encouragement from
    my fellow fake vaginas. Glover used the same material that Fake Vagina are

  6. A fleshlight won't claim that the beam is free of the suffocating death grip of the pump is still connected.
