Cult Nails Quench

So I just got a nice box of nail mail from Cult Nails, and I wanted to try something out.  I picked up Seduction, Quench(x2, one for Kas!), and another bottle of Wicked Fast in their $5 sale.

So in this post you'll notice two things:  My short nails, and the henna on my ring finger.  My nail broke at my old job and so I needed to cut them all down :(  I'm hoping they grow quickly because as you'll seel, I'm not the greatest at dealing with nubbins.  I also went and got some henna on my hand with a friend who had an Indian wedding to go to, but I didn't realise til it was too late that I put it on my swatching hand.  So you will get little glimpses of my henna hand for the next little while.

Quench is a GORGEOUS blood red jelly(though it's a LITTLE on the opaque side for a jelly) that applies like butter.  Seriously, if there's such thing as the perfect formula, I think this is it.  I'm hoping it doesn't thicken too much with time because it's really wonderful to work with.  On my middle finger, you'll see that I decided to see how Quench would work for a jelly sandwich(or candy mani), and  as you'll see, the result is... Underwhelming.  I used one coat of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle in between two layers of Quench.

I really, really love this red.  It's a great shade that looks classic and modern at once, with a really nice shine.  The jelly finish makes it really fun to play with.  I used two coats for these swatches, but in the future I'll use three as I had a TINY bit of VNL in some lights.  The colour is really hard to capture.  It's amazing.

I will be posting a review of Cult Nails Get It On and Wicked Fast before too long.
