Monday Blues: Cult Nails - Manipulative

By Lizzy O. - December 09, 2013

Hello lovers! 

Happy Monday! 
Anyone feeling cold wherever you are today? 
If you said No, all I have to say to you is BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Lol... 

Because it's cold here!!! They lied to me about Texas. Lol... I say this every year btw. 
But Yes, it's cold here, and as you guys know, me naaah like cold!!!! 

Anyhoo, I have been growing my nails a bit longer than I usually wear them (as I've shared with y'all on Instagram and facebook), and one of the colors I was drawn to wear on my new length of nails was this pretty soft blue nail Polish by Cult Nails called Manipulative ..... just as I was manipulated by everyone who told me Texas weather is the best and it stays HOT here. 
LIES, I tell you, LIES!!

Ok, forgive me for going back to the cold weather. 
Manipulative is such a pretty blue, and I'm so glad I finally had time to blog about it with swatches that make me happy!

Swatches in this post are 3 thin coats.

I did so many hand poses in my pictures for this post. Lol... 

I'm not used to holding polish bottles with nails as long as I currently have.. so I was trying different things. The longer nails hindered my regular polish holding style.

But I managed to still get some polish holding shots. :-D

This is quite possibly my fave picture below.

Oh but I kind of like this picture below too.
(note the thumb?), It got done because I wore this mani for about an entire week. GOOD wear time!! Minimal tip wear, and the fingers I didn't mess with had no chips. (I mess with polish on my nails after 3 days, I always itch to change color)

And a final look at this gorgeous blue!

I love this polish! I'm so glad I got to wear it again after such a long time!
Cult Nails can be purchased at

Well, that's it for now loves.
Hope y'all stay warm if it cold wherever you are.

Till Later, God Bless. :-)
