Twinsie Tuesday: Cult Nails Captivated

This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is a polish from our first swap. Coincidentally, my first swap was with a fellow Twinsie: Tara from Polishy of Truth. I got a ton of awesome polishes from Tara, including my very first Cult Nails: Captivated!

Captivated is a coral jelly packed with gold and coral glitter. The glitter has an almost iridescent quality to it and absolutely glows on the nail. Unfortunately it's been raining here the past few days (you may notice a raindrop on one of my fingers in the shots below) so I didn't have the best lighting to really show off Captivated's glow, but I hope how utterly gorgeous this polish is still comes across despite the crappy weather.

The formula on Captivated is thick, but the glitter still spreads evenly on the nail. You might want to give yourself a little bit of time between coats though to avoid any goopiness. I used three coats here. It's a jelly, but definitely still opaque enough to wear alone.
I totally love how glow-y Captivated is. I can't think of any other glitter in my collection that practically radiates light like Captivated does. It really is a stunning polish, so a big thanks to Tara for swapping me for it! Captivated was from Cult Nails' "A Day At The Races" Collection but thankfully it has become part of the brand's core line. You can purchase Cult Nails at the brand's official website.
