For probably the first time in my life, I was excited by a neutral collection… of nail polish! When I saw the sneak peeks of Cult Nails The Let’s Get Nekkid Collection, I just had to have it! So as soon as the pre-order went live, I purchased it. Thank goodness for Android phones! Yep, I did it from my cell phone. I’m excited by this collection for several reasons. One, I really don’t have many neutral nail polishes. Two, none of these shades are boring. They’ve all got gold to them, which I think adds elegance! Three, there’s a flakey in the mix. Ok, so Toxic Seaweed isn’t a neutral, per se, but it looks great with the rest.
These are all two coats of polish.
My thoughts on the colors:
Mazo – light tan with gold shimmer
Baker – peachy tan with gold shimmer
Tulum – milk chocolate brown with gold shimmer
Swanbourne – deep chocolate brown with gold micro glitter
Toxic Seaweed – green-teal with golden flakies
I pre-ordered the collection for $40.
Typically, the Cult nails polishes retail for $10 each. Pre-ordering is a really good deal if you think you’ll like all the colors. These colors should be available on the Cult website soon, as the pre-order is over.
I can’t WAIT to do a mani with these colors. I’m planning on doing an ombré mani:
Pinky – Swanbourne
Ring – Tulum
Middle – Baker
Index – Mazo
Thumb – Toxic Seaweed
Here’s my ombré mani.
I think this is an awesome collection from Maria at Cult Nails. While the colors fall outside what I typically wear, I really like them and think they round out my polish collection nicely. I think the shades will definitely have mass appeal.
What do you think of the Let’s Get Nekkid Collection? Do you like neutrals with a kick? Have you tried Cult Nails yet?

I want all of these!!! Neutral heaven! Especially with those hints of gold… lovely!
Yes! Gold makes them gorgeous to me
I haven’t tried Cult Nails yet, but I really like this collection.
I hope you give them a try. I think they’re awesome
My collection came today I’m not really into neutrals but I am in LOVE with Toxic Seaweed and I adored the stories behind the rest so I went all in.
Gorgeous swatches! I’m definitely a member of the cult
WOAH. I actually think nude polish is all “blech” and boring, but I love all four of those earth tone shades. I have several vintage 70s tops in varying earth-but-eye-catching prints, and these would go great with them. The hints of gold really do make them original. Can’t wait to see them on your nails!
I’m so glad you like them!
Nudes I often dislike, but I love neutrals with a twist. They’re so much more interesting. These all look gorgeous and I think the ombre mani idea using these is a great idea.
Some nudes look funny on me and it took me forever to like brown polishes but I so have to check this collection out. I’m currently on a “No Buy” month so hopefully they’ll still be around next month. Beautiful swatches, C!
I think at least a few of the shades will be!
