Cult Nails Behind Closed Doors Collection Swatches

Good Evening! 

  Cult Nails!!!!!! I love this brand to bits. I love the creator of this brand to bits. I love every little thing about Cult Nails. But the thing I love most is how with every collection Maria manages to blow me away a little more than the last time. Just when I though that there was no way Maria could top herself, she goes and creates one of the most beautiful and stunning Cult Nails Collection I've ever seen. This is the Behind Closed Doors Collection. An amazing group of Five shimmering beauties with quite the sexy theme. 
To see swatches of this AMAZING and beautiful collection just continue reading!

Cult Nails Coveted
  Coveted might just be my top polish release for 2012. Why? Ok, so I'm not much for catching "lemmings". The only lemmings I've had were Illamsqua Viridian and Load as well as Nars Zulu. That is all, just Three lemmings. I am now the happy owner of the Two Illamasqua shades but I never go ahold of Zulu. Enter Coveted; a deep Forest Green jelly base packed full of glowing Green micro shimmer and Green metallic flakes. Zulu who? Maria showed me a sneak of this color a few months before the release and it was immediate love. The formula on Coveted is excellent. I used Three coats for full coverage and opacity.

Cult Nails Flushed
 Flushed is just..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This shade is a beautiful Amethyst Purple base packed full of color-shifting micro shimmer. The shimmer is visible in all types of light and glows Pink, Copper, Purple and Green. There is a Clarins 230/ Fantasy Fire quality about Flushed that really makes it SO special. The formula on this polish is a dream and does great in Three thin coats. This polish might also do well layered, I've yet to try it.

Cult Nails Disciplined
 Disciplined is a soft Grey base packed with color-shifting shimmer. The base color is a soft and dreamy Gray that is slightly sheer and easily buildable. The shimmer shifts from Pink to Blue to Purple and Copper. I think if Cult Nails My Kind of Koolaid and Charlatan got together and had a love-baby you would get Disciplined. This polish does great in Three thin coats.

Cult Nails Bitten 
 Bitten is a delicious, rich Raspberry toned jelly base packed full of glowing shimmer. The shimmer in Bitten has a beautiful Pink, Purple, Berry shift. I  love this for the holidays and I love how it looks on my skintone. This is a very flattering shade. The formula on this color is a dream and does great in Three thin coats.

Cult Nails Afterglow
 Afterglow is a tarnished coppery base packed full of glowing copper microshimmer and accented by Pink glassflecks. I love the darkened edges when it is on the nail. I also love the touches of Pink as they give this shade a really unique touch. This shade has a wonderful Three coat formula.

 I have nothing else to say about this collection but "WOW!" I mean really, this group is really so refined and cohesive. I am a big fan of collection that actually look like they belong together. I love the micro shimmer theme in this colors and how flattering, unique and well executed they are. In typical Cult Nails fashion, the formulas are outstanding. I can't get enough Cult Nails!!! I can't pick favorites because I love the entire collection to bits!
