So this is the last of the Cult Nails polishes that I am reviewing from the Fairytale Collection. Today's is a lovely red color called Evil Queen. Once again, I've put Happy Ending over it for my accent nail. This is two coats of Evil Queen on each nail too.
I was really happy with this shade of red. I'm pretty pale, as you can see, so some reds are just so bright and look pretty crazy and bold on me. This one is indeed bright, but it's alright! It's definitely more on the actual red side than Deborah Lippmann - Footloose, which I consider more of a reddish coral. Still, reds are some of the hardest to capture just right with my camera!
All of that being said, this polish is quite pigmented, but not terribly pigmented. What I mean by that is that sometimes when I have a very pigmented polish, it looks beautiful, but cleanup and removal can be tough! When cleaning up around the edges with this one, it was leaving some reddish smudges, but it wasn't as bad as other polishes I have. It came off with a little extra work, and did not stain.
This polish is definitely another win! My whole experience with these Cult Nails polishes has been great. I am so grateful that I was able to meet Maria at the blogger meetup (which I'll also have to post about!) and try some of these polishes out before release.
Cult Nails is launching this collection on Friday, May 25th (tomorrow) with a pre-sale event. During this one week pre-sale event, the whole collection is going to be offered for the discounted price of $40 - that's like getting one polish free! Cult Nails says that pre-sales are expected to ship out by June 15th, and the polishes will be available for individual purchase at that time too. Each bottle is $10.
This polish was provided by Cult Nails for review. As always, I only offer my honest opinion.
