NOTD: Cult Nails Tempest & Essie Funky Limelight

Hello lovelies!

Sorry I missed you yesterday! I had quite the busy day and am so happy that I have today to relax and spend some time doing nail polish stuff! I may also be multi tasking and watching Breaking Bad. ;)

I am excited to share today's mani! I have been dying to wear Essie's Funky Limelight since I swapped for it months ago! I knew it would be a great summer polish! Since it is very sheer and a neon I decided to layer it over Cult Nails Tempest. Check it out!

I really love this white! I only needed 1 coat and it is so perfect! I have never worn white alone but this is one that I totally would!

These 2 photos are prior to top coat. I did use 2 coats but the 2nd coat didn't really change anything. 1 would have been enough! It dried to a matte finish as most neons tend to do.


With top coat! I really wish my camera would have picked up how neon this is! My camera just couldn't handle it!

This is much more color accurate! Not the best photo and my cuticles are messy but this is the best shot I was able to get of what Funky Limelight actually looks like!

What do you think? I loved this bright and fun mani and got several compliments on it!

Sadly, Essie Funky Limelight is no longer available and is overpriced on Ebay. I was lucky to get it in a swap! Cult Nails Tempest is readily available though! I bought mine from Beautylish (to take advantage of the buy 3 get Wicked Fast Top Coat free) but you can also get it directly from Cult Nails!

  1. Wow really cool! I don't think I have the skin tone for it though, phew or I'd hate trying to hunt it down >.<

    1. Haha! Luckily I can pull off yellows, neons, etc. I tan easily so that is a major help! ;)

  2. I really need Tempest. It's so hard to find a good creme white!

    1. Tempest is amazing! Definitely glad that I picked it up! I also really like Zoya Purity!
