Cult Nails Flushed quick swatch

A quick post/update:

I have always mentioned that I am open to suggestions and requests from YOU, my lovely friends/readers.

Well, in the comment section of TODAY’S Cult Nails Behind Closed Doors Swatches, PolishMad asked if I could show Flushed on its own (just to see how build able it is).Β  Well, your wish is my command! πŸ˜€

* (these are literally quick swatches- I put up the lightbox, and dabbed on the polish πŸ˜‰ … this is PRE-cleanup… no topcoat) *

This is ONE coat of Flushed:

And here are TWO coats of Flushed:

And from the original post, here is ONE coat of Flushed over ONE coat of Cult Nails Time Traveler:

It is fair to say that Flushed is VERY build-able and fully opaque in two coats.Β  Layering it over a deep/navy blue just adds a depth and darkness to it.

I was quite surprised myself to see how opaque it was on its own!! It just goes to show you that for everyone who asks a question, there are a number of others who wonder in silence. πŸ˜‰

I hope you find this helpful.

The Behind Closed Doors Cult Nails collection is going up for Sale TOMORROW at the special Preview Price of $40.00 for the 5 lacquers.

PLEASE never every hesitate to ask/request (I will do my best to answer/showcase your requests).

    This is sooo incredibly sweet of you, and so typical πŸ™‚ why am I even surprised ? πŸ™‚ I was before also requesting on other blogs, but this is first time someone actually helped. Yes, this helps a lot. It it really pretty on it’s own. I will love it πŸ™‚

    • It is MY PLEASURE. I love getting request. I try to keep my “stash” page updated- if I have it, I am always happy to show it / compare it etc.

      I may not always get to it as quickly as today (a fluke moment where the children played quietly on their own ) πŸ˜‰
      I KNOW you will love it! I do! πŸ˜‰

  • It’s a beautiful color and now you’ve convinced me to buy it. I have to agree that it looks amazing layered over blue! I’m going to do that too πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! And… once layered over blue you get the lovely effect AND save more polish for later πŸ˜‰

    Dang it, I was hoping it would be super sheer and take like 6 coats so I could pass on it but now I’m going to have to add this one to my wish list too!!

    • LOL. I actually didn’t expect it to be so opaque in two coats either! I’m selling my FF πŸ˜‰ this is my preferred polish πŸ˜‰

  • Christine Steiner

    As feared – impossible to pass this one!!! I AGAIN have to abandon my no-buy ban aaaargh!!!! On the other hand – who in their clear mind would impose a no-buy at the same time of all the Christmas Collection releases???? And this is before clean-up??? You must be kidding!!!!!!

    • It is “Impossible” – well phrased.
      LOL… I have tried no-buys but I’m futile at sticking to the plan. I now just try not to buy ‘dupes’… or get caught up in buying “just because it is part of a new collection”. If I won’t wear it more than once- I pass on it πŸ˜‰

    I have FF, but am very miserly with it b/c it is such a small bottle. Because of your gorgeous swatches, I bought the whole Behind Closed Doors collection the moment it was released. With the addition of Flushed to my polish collection, I can wear its beauty and I no longer feel the need to keep FF locked up in my makeup case. Thank you!

    • I agree… the small bottle makes me think that after one manicure it will be all gone -PLUS it is ultra sheer right so you need multiple coats.
      πŸ™‚ You will love this shade for sure! Now I’m excited with you to see these shades arrive at your doorstep

  • Anya_WackyLaki

    There you go teasing me again! Love this color!!

    • LOL… this one is truly worth it! I’ve said it to a few other Ladies… but I will be passing off my Fantasy Fire- this is much lovelier πŸ˜‰

  • This is the kind of purple that could bring out my ‘purple phase’ again – a time when I wore nothing but all sorts of purple and was convinced this is THE color for me. But then I discovered red, lol. I still appreciate a good purple shade is this one is beyond the value of good! Love it!

    • This is an exquisite shade for sure!!!!
      Can you believe that the purple phase that you describe in yourself was PINK phase for me!? In fact, for a few years I wore nothing but bright pinks year round!

    I really love this color!

    • I do too! In fact, I like it more than Fantasy Fire- Honestly!
