Cult Cosmetics: Festival Lights Blackbox

*Press sample*
Hey everyone! I have yet another amazing Blackbox from Cult Cosmetics to share with you today! As you may know, I am a sponsored artist with Cult and I was sent 3 amazing boxes to try - this is the final one! :)

Here's some information about the BlackBox, Cult's monthly subscription box, from the Cult website: 
"Introducing BLACKBOX by CULT. With BLACKBOX, every month you’ll receive the latest nail colors and looks... along with tips, tools and occasional bonuses every month.

The August Blackbox was just released, and it looks amazing! You can view it here, and you can receive 50% off your first box with the code BLACKBOX.

Today, I'll be showing you the Festival Lights Blackbox, which includes the following:

- Laguna by Cult, inspired on the beautiful city of Laguna Beach 

- Breakwater by Cult, local surf spot in Venice, CA. 

- Coachella by Cult, Holographic top coat. 

- Set of 3 brushes

Here are the 3 brushes included with this box. The 2 angled brushes are absolutely perfect for cleanup!! I wanted to try the fan brush because I had never used one before. So, I looked up some techniques for how to use a fan brush and that's how I came up with the mani I did! :)

I used two coats of Laguna on my index and middle finger and two coats of Breakwater on my ring and pinky. I used the fan brush dipped in just a bit of the opposite color and ran it across the nail horizontally a few times on the index and pinky nails. Then, I added just one coat of Coachella on the middle two nails. One coat of HK Girl topcoat and done!

Coachella is really a gorgeous holographic topcoat! It would look amazing over any color. I can't wait to try it over black or another dark color! And, I really loved the fan brush technique. I think it would be fun to try with several colors instead of just two. This is a great, versatile kit. I did use the smaller angled brush for cleaning up the polish around the edges of the nail and it worked really well! I already know I'll be using that one a lot.
