Cult Nails ~ Always Winning

Hey dolls, I'm so excited about the Sade/John Legend concert I'm going to tonight! I think they will both be so awesome! Here's just a quick post to show you what I'm wearing. The theme for the week in the Nail Fanatics forum was green. I decided to use Cult Nails Always Winning. This is an olive green base, packed with lots of gold shimmer. I was expecting the formula to be similar to that of Captivated, but Always Winning was very sheer and thin. It took 3 coats to build up a look I was happy with, but another would probably be required for full opacity. The brush on these Cult Nails polishes are amazing...I never have to do any clean up! Onto some pics...

I have to admit, I wasn't immediately a fan of this shade. It definitely had to grow on me...I like it because its unique in my collection though. Its one of those colors that you either like or don't like at all. I decided to add China Glaze Cracked Medallion as an accent to see how it would look.

I really like the bronzed look of Cracked Medallion. Its a very subtle contrast in person. I'm excited to try this over some different bases where it will stand out more. I'll also try Always Winning layered over another color to see how it looks. Happy polishing dolls!

First off, I am so jealous you're going to that concert. Have a great time!

I was pretty up in the air about this color, but it's so pretty. And it looks great on you!

Thanks guys!!!
@Polishedcomponents...you definitely need to join the cult! I haven't been disappointed in the formula yet.
@BMR...I was on the fence with this one too...I ordered it during the July 4th promo.
