Haul of Shame: Cult Nails Nail Polish (Includes Unicorn Puke)

Cult Nails Nail Polish Haul & PicturesI’ve finally joined a cult – Cult Nails, that is! πŸ˜‰

For what seemed like forever, I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about this brand. And, so many bloggers have enticed me with their beautiful swatch photos.

There were so many colours on my To-Buy List. Then I found out about a pre-sale of Cult Nails Unicorn Puke, which is an insanely unique multi-coloured flakie polish with cool gold-lettered packaging. There were only 275 limited-edition bottles of it made.

So I bit the bullet, bought Cult Nails Unicorn Puke and a back-up…as well as all the other colours I had wanted before. Yes, I was very, very bad. My wallet won’t stop telling me this.

If you missed out on ordering Unicorn Puke, don’t worry! Cult Nails will be bringing it back (in the regular packaging, though) in their Super Powers Collection. It’ll be renamedΒ Clairvoyant.

I’m already planning on doing separate layering experiments with Unicorn Puke and Hypnotize Me, so please stay tuned for them.

I may wear the rest solo. If I do, I’ll be sure to provide detailed swatch photos and in-depth reviews as usual.

For now, though, please enjoy the simple bottle photos in this post –Β I’ve included little teaser photos of each colour.

I’ll be trying out Unicorn Puke first. How could I resist a flakie polish? It’s impossible. πŸ˜‰

Which is your favourite out of the bunch? Have you joined ‘the cult’? Did you also order a bottle of the limited-edition Unicorn Puke, or will you wait for it to be re-released as Clairvoyant?

    I love all tehese colors!! Unicorn Puke is my favorite because nail polish with big glitter is usually my favorite. I also like Hypnotise me because it’s like an amazing turquoise shimmer that is a must have for me! I need to join the cult!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey maddy!

      It’s definitely my favourite one, too! It’d be nice to see large flakie polishes more often (but not to the point where the market is too saturated like with crackle polishes).

  2. Valerie

    You must have a crazy amount of polish — I’m so jealous! I’m looking forward to seeing Unicorn Puke on the nail.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Valerie!

      Yes. *Hangs head in shame* I do. πŸ˜‰ But after my most recently nail-polish haul, I’m trying to be more frugal for a little while. (I’m not calling it a No Buy, though, because whenever I go on one, I always cave. It’s kind of like when someone needs to shut the water off to work on the pipes. You didn’t need any water, but once the person says it’ll be shut off for an hour or two, that’s when you feel the need for water. :P)

      I’m wearing Unicorn Puke right now in a little layering attempt. I’ll have the post up this Friday. πŸ™‚

    I just died. I wish I thought to jump on the chance too! I was hemming and hawing about it but it was too late by the time I decided to just go with it. πŸ™ Oh, well. It must not have been meant to be. πŸ˜›

    Awesome haul, Mary! πŸ˜€ I think I’ll wait till Clairvoyant is out before I’ll order anything and subsequently join the cult. Also, do my eyes deceive me or is Iconic also a flakie?? I’m already trying to figure out what I’ll get. Awakening is definitely on the list, too. πŸ˜€

      Hey Carmela!

      Yeah, I was shocked at how fast Unicorn Pee sold out. When I got my order in, I think I read a tweet about how there were just 25 or something bottles left! So I made like Inspector Gadget and said, “Go, go, gadget fingers…and place that nail-polish order!” πŸ˜‰

      It’s okay that you didn’t get Unicorn Pee. At least it wasn’t discontinued and you can get the same colour, but just a different bottle.

      Yes, Iconic is also a flakie! I probably wouldn’t have bought a red nail polish if it weren’t. This seems like something I don’t have in my collection. Can’t wait to wear that one, either. Haha, I feel like wearing a skittle manicure just so I can wear them all at the same time because I’m impatient!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey PinkGlitter!

      There’s nothing else like it in my collection, so I’m really grateful to have been able to buy this one. πŸ™‚ And, yes, great name…even if it’s about puke…hehe!

    Lol, I just LOVE hauls! I don’t buy a lot of makeup/nail polish, so when I actually give in and spend a big amount of money, it makes me so HAPPY, happy, happy x 3 million. πŸ™‚ I’ve never heard of this brand of nail polish before though. D: Can’t wait to see the swatch! The colors look great!

      Hey Jennifer!

      I love seeing other people’s hauls, too. It doesn’t make me jealous. It often helps me see the actual product up close and helps me better decide if I should get it or not. Plus as long as they don’t do ONLY hauls, then I think it’s fun because usually people are so excited and happy, especially in the YouTube videos.

      I’m wearing Unicorn Puke now, so I’ll have the post up on it this Friday! πŸ™‚

  5. Marta

    I am a Cultie and proud of it. I have already bought myself the life-long membership… because aside from the pretty colours I really am a fan of the formula and the people behind this flourishing company.

    My favourites, to date, continue to be Cruisin Nude and Enigmatic (I think you’ll love Enigmatic too if you liked the Paradoxal dupes… πŸ˜‰ )

    Although I will say that Hypnotize me and Unicorn Puke are incredible for sponging and layering!
    I’m soo glad you’re part of the cult… come sit beside me? πŸ˜‰

    1. Mary Post author

      *Goes to sit beside Marta*

      *We both look up at the larger-than-life-sized nail-polish statue* πŸ˜› Oh, idol worship!

      I’m so happy that we’re in the cult together! Your swatches helped me decide to plunk down some serious money on a bunch of these Cult Nails nail polishes. (Ahem…”if” I liked the Paradoxal dupes? Hehehe, love, love, LOVE!)

    colour me seventeen thousand shades of jealous. perhaps if you find you hate them, you could pass along a unicorn puke and awakening to me?? lol. they are so gorgeous, i only wish i could splurge like you did. swatches, please!

      Hey rae!

      Seventeen shades of jealous? Wow, that’s a LOT of green! πŸ˜‰

      Haha, oh, I really hope I don’t hate any. Then I’ll KNOW I’m going mad in the head…more than usual.

      Unicorn Puke will be on Swatch And Learn on Friday. πŸ˜€

      Hey Maribeth!

      Yes, even the way they were packaged speaks volumes about the care that was put into them. I like special little touches that remind me that a HUMAN is behind it and not some faceless big company. πŸ™‚

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey MotorCityMoxie!

      I’ve heard great things about this brand’s formula. So far the only colour I’ve tried is Unicorn Puke as a layering polish, and it was nice and smooth – very easy to work with. When I wear the other colours, I’ll be sure to go into the details. πŸ™‚

  7. Kimberly

    I’m a member of the cult too. If I can stop staring at my Unicorn Puke and swatch it….lol. I have many of the Cult polishes and they are a dream to apply and gotta love those colors!!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Kimberly!

      Yes, she sure knows how to mix interesting colours. πŸ™‚ And it feels really special that not everyone knows about them. Makes it feel like that hidden gem.

  8. Natalie

    Another Cult member here. I own every color, but I missed out on Unicorn Puke! I was soooo disappointed! But I’ve already pre-ordered the Superpowers collection, so I’ll just have to make due with Clairvoyant. I guess I can just peel the nametag off and call it Unicorn Puke. πŸ™‚

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Natalie!

      WOWWWW! You own every colour except Unicorn Puke? Amazing collection! (Excuse me. I’m totally drooling over here.) πŸ˜€

      1. Natalie

        Yep! I even got Crusin’ Nude, although I hate nude polishes. Well, I hated nude polishes until I got Crusin’ Nude, that is. The pink shimmer in it is to die for. And the formula is just the best. That Maria is a nail polish savant. One day, when she’s up there with Suzy and Essie, I will be able to say I had all her polishes from the start!
        Natalie recently posted: Final Halloween Mani

        1. Mary Post author

          That says a lot when you usually don’t like nude polishes and this one you really enjoyed! πŸ™‚ Now I’m curious about that one.

          Yeah, I hope that Maria’s Cult Nails becomes even more popular. Although I do like the big brands, sometimes you need smaller brands to push the envelope of creativity and show others that there are other ideas hatching. πŸ™‚

    1. Kee

      PS. I tried to make my own version of Unicorn Puke to tide me over. I’m wearing DS Magic right now and I layered it with Hidden Treasure! The flakie goodness is enough to satisfy me until my own bottle of Clairvoyant gets here!!

  9. Vivian

    Wow I love unicorn puke! That looks amazing! Tell me you’re going to swatch them?? It would be tortue if you don’t!! Hypnotize me looks amazing in the bottle too :O I’ve heard of Cult nails, but never bought anything. I’m pretty tempted to try out clairvoyant once that’s released.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Vivian!

      I’ll definitely wear them eventually, and of course when I do, I’ll be sure to share photos and reviews on them. πŸ™‚ Unicorn Puke’s photos will be posted on here this Friday. Haha, so don’t worry – I wouldn’t torture you…or anyone else!

  10. Amber

    I keep seeing Unicorn puke on peoples NOTD posts. Its soo pretty!! You got some really pretty colors here, I cant wait to see swatches. Better yet I cant wait to see nail art you come up with πŸ™‚

      Hey Amber!

      It certainly deserves all the buzz it’s been getting lately. πŸ™‚ Hmm…I’ll have to think of some nail art to do. I feel like I haven’t done nail stamping in a while!

  11. Maureen

    I recently bought some Cult when they were added to Overall Beauty’s site. I have Quench and Living Water and love them both!!

  12. Nicole

    aaaagghh! I only WISH I’d been quick enough to get one bottle of UP, but I did preorder Superpowers. There were a lot of pretty colors on the site and I had to remind myself Christmas is coming and if I spent more than $35 on polish my husband would probably kill me! Haha. Seriously tho I can’t wait to get it and I’m anxious to see your swatches tomorrow. I want all the Cult colors! They seem so awesome (especially that nude with pink shimmer) and I love that it’s so human and personal. And I so agree with you, once the market is saturated, I don’t even wanna wear it anymore, no matter how awesome. And that’s sad cuz I kinda loved my shatters. :-/ I guess that’s the perils of trying to be a trend setter not a follower (for the most part). πŸ˜‰

      Hey Nicole!

      YAY for pre-ordering the Super Powers Collection! πŸ˜€ You must be really excited to get it. I know I would be. Sadly, I didn’t pre-order it because I spent way too much in this order already. Shh! πŸ˜‰

      I agree with you – the human/personal touch combined with the gorgeous colours really sets Cult Nails apart.
