What Type of CULT Girl are You?

There isn’t just one kind of girl in the world, and that’s what makes CULT girls so special. CULT girls aren’t afraid to let their personality shine – and they aren’t afraid to try on more than one style, look or trend. That’s because they’re so confident of what they are underneath that they know they can experiment with putting any face forward to the world that they want. CULT develops nail looks not just for the girl you are but for the girl you feel like being today. And that doesn’t have to be the same tomorrow! Which kind of CULT girl are you? Pick your style. Then change it tomorrow.

City Girl by CULTThe City Girl: Urban Chic + Nonstop

There’s no pink in this girl’s closet, and there’s no stop in her day either. She’s as active at 3:00pm when she’s busy at work with a Red Bull or a power latte as she is at 3:00am when she’s closing down the trendiest party. Her nails need to go from chic but no-nonsense work to “ready to party” with no transition. Her look needs to be edgy and she can’t afford to be behind trend because she’s the one who sets the trend.

She Idolizes: Demi Moore because she’s tough as nails. Nina Dobrev for her sleek style.

Her Designer: Jason Wu

Her City: NYC, all day, every day.

Her Blackbox: City Girl by CULT

City Girl Blackbox by CULTThree CULT shades that create an always on-trend look with a Botanical Basecoat to make sure here nails are always healthy underneath. Point Dume deep blue for a power color, Joshua Tree off-grid nude for a classic look and WeHo party glitter for a quick-transition to nighttime mode.

She takes care of business. And her business is being amazing.

Modern Classic by CULTThe Modern Classic: A Throwback with Contemporary Edge

If she could live in a black and white movie, she would. But since she can’t, she embraces the style and class that her favorite movie stars of old did. But that doesn’t mean that she’s out-of-date. She’s unstoppably contemporary, but she knows how to weave class and sophistication through everything that she does. On her nails, she loves classic reds and art deco designs  - and she likes her lips and jewelry to match. Her style may be modern lines and edgy trends, but her base is all classics.

She Idolizes: Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Cyd Charisse

Her Designer: Coco Chanel

Her City: Old school Chicago

Her Blackbox: Modern Classic by CULT

BoHo Chic Blackbox by CULTThe BoHo Babe: Free Spirit + Natural Edge

When she’s not surfing, she’s climbing a mountain. She eats raw vegan because she genuinely likes it. That band that you’ve never heard of before? She’s been listening to them for a year already. Somehow, she always looks perfectly styled even though you just know she just grabbed some clothes off the floor and walked out of the door. She can show up at a black tie event in jeans and still be the most captivating person there – and you can’t remember the last time you saw her hair in anything other than a messy ponytail. How does this girl manage to be so effortlessly cool without even trying? It’s because she’s not so busymaking things happen that she stops just letting them happen.

She Idolizes: P!nk, Jennifer Lawrence

Her Designer: Levi’s and a good thrift store

Her City: San Francisco

Her Blackbox: BoHo Chic by CULT

BoHo Chic BlackboxOut-of-the-box colors with an emphasis on earth tones including grey-green Runyon polish, dusty rose and urban gypsy Rosebowl polish and melting brown Mulholland polish combine with a striping tool to create unique nail looks that aren’t too girlie. Pair these colors with jeans or your favorite beach pullover sweater. Either way, the look is casual trendy.

America's Sweetheart BlackboxAmerica’s Sweetheart: An Adorable Rebel in Pink

Her style is adorably sweet. But don’t let her outer prom queen fool you. On the inside she’s a rebel in pink who defines her own style. She likes to dress like fairytale princesses for Halloween, but with a slightly naughty edge. She’s not afraid to fight for what she thinks it right, but her manners are perfect and she’s generous to a fault. Somehow, no matter how old she gets, everybody mistakes her for twenty-five. She has big, romantic dreams and you have no doubt that she’ll make them all come true – even if one of them involves riding on a float in a Disney parade while wearing a tiara and drinking champagne.

She Idolizes: Kelly Clarkson, Judy Garland, Kate Middleton

Her Designer: Kate Spade with the occasional Besty Johnson Fun

Her City: Atlanta, Charlotte, Lexington

CULT Nail Polish in Action: Los Feliz

Los Feliz Orchid Nail Polish by CULT

Los Feliz: Urban Flower + Lifelong Romantic

The Color:  A one-coat, hyper-pigmented  wild orchid that’s more urban flower than English garden. For the city girl with a hopelessly romantic sweet side that she just can’t hide.

Los Feliz CULT PolishInspired By: The original Disneyland inspiration of Los Feliz.

Who Wears It:  She’s a sweetheart who still smiles at the Mickey Mouse courting Minnie, loves bows in her hair and heart-shaped rings. But she’s also got an urban edge and wears her pinks darker, her purples lusher and her metallic with a sharper sheen.  She wants the big, romantic engagement ring, but she wants it set in platinum instead of gold. She loves a good romance novel, but she prefers to read it on the balcony of her top floor condo.

The Quote:  “A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.” Charlie Chaplin

Abbot Kinney Metallic Antique Gold Polish by CULT

Abbot Kinney by CULT: Style Revolutionary. Still Romantic. 

The Color:  A one-coat, hyper-pigmented metallic antique gold that combines modern style with classic romance. Perfect for the girl who keeps control while still believing in true love.

Abbot Kinney Polish in the America's Sweetheart BlackboxInspired By:  The artistic and chic renaissance of Venice Beach’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard

Who Wears It: She always knows where the new, hot neighborhood is, which restaurants she should eat at there and where the best shops for creating a truly unique style are.  She likes places that not everybody goes to – only people in the know. She’s the master of taking a two hour lunch to sit out in the sun and do some shopping. Somehow, no matter how hard you try, you’re never able to replicate her look.  She believes in deep kisses, hand-crafted metal jewelry and choosing cool little boutiques over Neiman’s any day.

The Quote:  “I love romance. I’m a sucker for it. I love it so much. It’s pathetic.” Drew Barrymore

Five Nail Trends for Spring 2014: Easter Colors

There doesn’t seem to be on major signature shade for spring nail colors this year, but there’s definitely a palette. Easter pastels are always a go-to in the spring, but this year’s Easter colors are more pigmented, richer and bolder than your typical light Easter spring shades. Think jelly beans and bubble gum pinks. Or take a look at the nails from the runway shows for Custo Barcelona, Burberry Prorsum, Fausto Puglisi, Gareth Pugh, Just Cavalli and NoNoo. Thing spring and happy but amped up. Take a look at some examples we’ve found below or move on to the last trend for Spring 2014 nails.
