Cult Nails Fairytale Collection Swatches

Cult Nails is one of my favorite brands so of course when I got the e-mail at the end of May that the new collection was available for pre-order, I got in on that. And this time, I actually managed to make time to swatch them all before the next collection is released. Fairytale (or maybe it's Fairy Tale; I've seen it written both ways) is five polishes: Princess, Charming, Feelin' Froggy, Happy Ending, and Evil Queen.



Princess is a somewhat dusty light blue with an orangey pink shimmer. Two coats was plenty.





Charming is a medium purple with a subtle shimmer. This one is on the sheer side but very buildable; I used three coats here.





Feelin' Froggy is a green shimmer. It's similar to Charming in opacity but its shimmer is more pronounced. I used three coats.





Happy Ending is a shredded glitter, with irregular pieces of teal, lilac, orange, and yellow (and maybe some silver?) floating in a clear base. I used two coats of it over Charming. It wasn't nearly as bumpy as you might think; these swatches have no top coat.







Evil Queen, a classic red creme, rounds out the collection. This is two coats, no top coat.





If I were under a mandate to reduce my stash by 40%, I could let Happy Ending and Evil Queen go. If the mandate were 60%, I'd have to seriously consider going into hiding because I'd want to hold onto the last three from this group. Tomorrow I'll have some comparisons that will shed light on these hypothetical choices.

  3. Great swatches! I really want Feeling Froggy, Charming and Princess. I like the glitter but for the price I was thinking of hitting up Icing to see if I could find the dupe since I wouldn't wear it a ton.

  5. Very pretty...I look forward to your comparisons because for some reason I don't have many Cult polishes in my stash..dupes or close to's will have to do!

  6. My favourites are Charming and Feelin' Froggy. I'm not a huge fan of three coaters though. :)

  7. Nice swatches as always. I'm kind of "allergic" to sheer polishes, but Charming is very lovely, and I think princess too :)

  8. I love Happy Ending, and its name is just cute ^^ Overall I see those are going to be the new trendy colors, for they are quite alike with Essence Snow White Collection...

  9. Princess is really pretty! It looks like a more opaque SC Cinderella.

  15. Happy Ending looks really neat-- I like that it's kind of shards of glitter instead of the usual.
