Swatch and Review: Cult Nails Seduction (and a Photography Experiment

This post was a bit delayed from yesterday, but I'm really excited to share it with you. Since my the beginning of March, I've begun to dabble in photography with a DSLR camera and received one for my birthday. I've been toying around with it, experimenting to see how to get different results.

The lovely Maria of Cult Nails is in the process of moving the brand to their first ever office and is looking for photos of her polishes to decorate the walls. I absolutely love Iconic, but wanted to give it a little extra oomph in order to help pick up the flakes on camera.

So I pulled out an untried of mine to give me a little boost... Cult Nails Seduction!

I went through my entire garden, trying to find an appropriate medium with which to convey the beauty of two coats of Seduction over two coats of Iconic.

My surfinia petunias!

Take 2!

My Sarah Bernhardt peonies!

And lastly, my swimming pool! I think that the water and waves help magnify the flakies and really pick up the color shift in them under sunlight!

So what do you think of my photos? And of course, of this layering combo?

Until tomorrow!

  1. I think you're right, the water really brings out the beauty of Seduction! It's the photo that really shows off how beautiful it is.

    I like this combo! I actually have both (and I only have 4 Cult Nails so far!) so I'll have to try it!

    DSLRs can be confusing. I got my first as a (big) birthday present last year from my husband, and I've been trying to play with it ever since- but I still just keep it in Auto or Macro most of the time :) Even in Auto, the photo quality is so far and away above my pretty nice point and shoot that it was worth every penny!

  2. Love the pictures specially the one on the swimming pool the color is so pretty love sparkles

  3. This layering combination is amazing! It's simply to die for!
