Cult Nails Falling Hard + Feedback

  Hi friends!!  A discussion on favorite polish combos on facebook the other day prompted me to bring out my favorite flakie topper and one of the pinks I've been obsessing over lately and put them together.  This is Cult Nails Feedback, an iridescent pink and gold mylar flakie, over Falling Hard, a sweet, bright, super saturated orchid pink creme.

  Feedback is a bit of a misbehaver, as the formula is rather gloopy and the shards have trouble laying flat, especially when they come out in abundance.  Placement is important but it won't solve the whole problem.  Two coats of thick, glassy topcoat smooths it out for the most part.  It's gorgeous, though, and its character flaws are easily overlooked.  I've not found one color this wouldn't look amazing over.  Falling Hard is just about as perfect as a creme can get.  Full review HERE.  Both lacquers are available for sale on cultnails.com.

  So what's your favorite high maintenance but totally worth the effort polish, or favorite polish duo?

  Thank you for reading, as always, and have a lovely day!! ♥♥

  2. I love that pretty flakie glitter with the shards. Too bad it takes a bit of work to get it looking great. I love Cult Nails polishes. That pink is a great base color. I love pink.

  4. I like the combo! They work so well together :-) I've had a similar experience with a shard polish - absolute nightmare to work with!

    1. Thank you!! I don't think there's anything this wouldn't look gorgeous over. Ugh, though, nightmarishly applying shards...but so pretty, right? lol :) I've definitely encountered worse formulas on polishes not as pretty as this one... It's still worth having, for sure.

    1. You're so sweet, sis ♥♥ I figured it'd look pretty cool but the pink base seriously elevates the pink shards! I've put a dent in my bottle of Feedback and feel like a backup is in order. I think I will, next sale.

      The Anna Gorelovas-- I love the leetle owl on the bottles! And Koschei Bessmertni... swooooon ♥♥♥♥♥ SOmething that pretty almost has a right to be tricky, lol.

  6. That's such an awesome combo, though a little bit unexpected, which just contributes to its charm. :) I'm not very patient, so if a polish is too fussy, I usually never use it again. As for favorite combos, I love the Zoya flakie trio and put those over almost anything haha. They add an interesting glow/dimension to most colors. :)

    1. I'm not patient, either, but this one has me smitten, lol. I'm so sad I missed the Zoya flakies! And I think it's hilarious that they try to call them holos :p If they bring them back, I'm getting all three.
