Cult Nails Charlatan

Today I have my absolute favorite new top coat, from the new Cult Nails Deceptive Top Coats, this is Charlatan, a swirly pink and purple shimmer in the bottle but oh, just you wait!

I decided to layer one coat of Charlatan over my existing Nevermore manicure.  I did not use a top coat and still had exceptionally amazing results.

First in full sun, you can see that Charlatan transforms the normal black creme of Nevermore into a bright blue shimmer which is lovely on its own, no doubt.

Then I turned around to the shade and hello.  All of a sudden that royal blue is a light lavender!

Or is it purple and blue?

Multichromal goodness rawr.

I mean really, how lovely is this top coat?

And then I thought - hey, let's see what it looks like in some indirect sunlight.
Bam.  Winner.  Go buy it.

September 1-8, Maria is offering all 5 of the Deceptive Collection top coats for $40 (+ shipping).  If you want to wait, then you can purchase Charlatan for $10.  Definitely a fast favorite for me, and I can't wait to try it on other polishes (not just black).

Cult Nails [Website | Facebook | Twitter | Blog | Instagram: CultNails] is available in their shop for $12 a bottle.

  1. Looks nice! I would love to see this top coat over a series of different colors

    1. Cult Nails does have it over some of her other colors on her blog but I will definitely put it on my list to test out! <3

  2. I bought some on the sale or I'd be all over this. I'll have to wait now to see what I bought. I can't wait.
