Wearing Wack Slacks to Nubbin Town

Hello gentle readers.

What do I get when I go on a tear, drag out the Comet, the cleaning supplies, the rags, sponges, the mop, vacuum and I scrub my house, from top to bottom, without gloves?

I get a sparkling clean house.

And I get jacked up nails and cuticles.

And I get nubbins.

Just when I think I have grown my nails back to my ideal swatching length, too. *sigh* Talk about self sabotage.

Cult Nails Wack Slacks is the perfect way to soothe and comfort raw, new nubbins. When I am forced to grind my nails down, I like to go deep, dark. Not only does a vampy polish look smashing on nubbins, it is a little mourning for what was. The loss of my longer, more graceful nails until they regenerate, once again.

***snort*** Drama queen much?

This manicure was one coat of Cult Nails Wack Slacks, a beautiful, dense, richly pigmented navy blue creme and Seche Vite to top it off. Yes, gentle reader. You read that read that right. One coat. Which was nice because after trimming away ripped up cuticle material (something I normally avoid, if I possibly can) acetone on my cleanup brush... OWIE! My cuticles are still healing and a little sensitive!

I am apologizing in advance for my photographs... As I said, I really jacked up my hands, nails and cuticles and they look pretty bad. At least the polish is beautiful.



Cult Nails Wack Slacks has a splendid formula, it is a perfect viscosity, firm but not thick, it flows easily off of the brush, sits down and cooperates without going nuts. There is no running, flooding, pooling, streaking, dragging or bubbling. I did have quite a bit of cleanup but that was because I was shaky and sloppy after a long day of hardcore housework fueled by a lot of caffeine and polishing new nubbins neatly wasn't happening. Like any blue polish, the pigments in this baby will grab and stain skin, especially skin that is in the least bit dry. And my skin was dry!

This polish dries quickly and shiny and beautiful. Top coat just enhances that and makes it even better. Wear time is respectable. I had this one on and looking good for three full days. I don't get fabulous wear out of most nail polishes, if I get four days, I am dancing in the streets. Yeah, just drink in that mental picture.

I like Cult Nails Wack Slacks. It is beautiful, the formula is fantastic and it is a One Coat Wonder for me. What more could a polish lover ask for? A link to where you can buy it*, perhaps? If you jump on the stick, Cult Nails is running a sale through the end of the month of May! Yep. You could get pretty blue pants or any other garments for your nails for 20% off! So get yourself over there and check out the pretty. Wack Slacks is a Limited Edition polish.

Did you know that Cult Nails polishes are not only gorgeous with a fabulous formula, they are 5 Free, cruelty free and vegan, as well? Cult Nails is a brand you can feel good about buying for yourself and as gifts for polish loving friends and family.

Do you own Cult Nails Wack Slacks? Other beautiful Cult Nails polishes? If you haven't, yet you can Join the Cult here*. It's a beautiful, colourful, fun cult, where there are no rules and your nails always look pretty.

  2. Your nubs look waaaay better than when I have nubs. It seems like you have longer nail beds so they don't look as short! I love this color - very pretty. :)

  4. "Wearing Wack Slacks to Nubbin Town" this whole post made me smile :D
    I emphathize, as I actually broke a nail (right pinkie) this weekend for the first time in awhile. I'd also been nursing a tear (right index) with the Orly repair kit. I just gave up and nubbinized.
    I also went blue: Essie Smooth Sailing and China Glaze Skyscraper.
    I thought I didn't need Wack Slacks, but now I am reconsidering....

  18. if your nails are jacked up, what do you call mine, fucked up? LOL! I love your nails and the shade. I agree, dark colors seem to compliment short nails.

  19. The oil and lighting covered a multitude of fresh sins to my cuticles and my nails looked bad. Really bad, happily, the polish and top coat and camera angle were able to fool the eye away from that fact. I really jacked up my hands, that day. My cuticles are still recovering. LOL
