Hi loves! Today I am showing you a polish you have seen here before, but I wasn't extremely happy with my swatches and also I wanted to wear this again, to see if my topcoat I now use could get rid of the gritty feeling this polish has. Luckily, it did! Gotta love that Essence "gel" topcoat ♥.
Cult Nails Living Water was part of the Inaugural collection in 2011 and has now become limited edition. So if you want this, don't wait too long or it'll be gone forever! It has a blackened blue/teal jelly base (which becomes nearly black as you paint it on) filled with microglitter in ice blue and emerald green. This really fits the description as found on www.cultnails.com.
I used 3 coats this time (my first swatch was 2 coats) because in my swatch light I could see some bare patches after 2 coats. Because of the jelly nature of this polish you really need the coats to dry in between! I first used a simple coat of clear before topping it with my topcoat and that did the trick for the gritty feeling this gets after a few hours of drying!
