We all have our favourite comfort food that we gobble up in no time flat. It may remind us of home or something else that’s familiar and reassuring – it makes us feel good.
The same is true of nail polish. No, we don’t swallow our liquid euphoria, but we get the same sense of security when we wear our trusty nail colour. In other words, certain colours can put us at ease.
Cult Nails In A Trance from the Hypnotic Collection is one of my ‘comfort polishes’.
It’s a golden olive that I find very easy to wear and that really fits in with my style. I find the colour soothing yet interesting enough to keep my attention.
This is the first time that I tried In A Trance, and I can easily see myself going back to this colour whenever I’m not sure what to wear.
Do you have a ‘comfort polish’?

Cult Nails In A Trance Review
In A Trance by Cult Nails will leave you in a trance. Right after I finished putting a top coat over this baby, I think I literally stared at it for 30 seconds straight. (Did they put some drugs in the mix?)
The reason why I was so taken by this polish was because, under my terrible yellow artificial lights, this polish looked more gold to me than olive.
You know that green polishes really do it for me, although I’ve been interested in golden colours lately. So, I was expecting to see just a gold, but what I got was this awesome kind of olive with lively mustard shimmer.
It’s one of those polishes where the edges of your nails looks darker than the middle of your nail, which catches the light. And I like how this colour has an antique feel to it.
In A Trance by Cult Nails has a shimmer finish.
The shimmer is really interesting because although I saw light gold, when the sun hit my nails at a certain angle, I was able to see some orangey gold!
When you see the polish in the bottle, for some reason it doesn’t look nearly as exciting as it does when you’re actually wearing it on your nails! I love a polish that pretends it’s just your average Joe and then you find out it’s King Tut (minus the curse)!
Application & Formula
Application was dreamy! It went on easily like a creme polish, and it was extremely pigmented. Now, I tend to use medium coats, and with just one coat, it covered a lot of my nail right off the bat. With a second coat, it was absolutely perfect! I’m very happy with this formula – it’s very easy to control.
Limited-Time Free Shipping on Cult Nails Website
This review is very timely (although it wasn’t planned) because I got an e-mail about a free shipping offer on the Cult Nails website that’s valid until January 14th, 2012. It’s to celebrate the company turning one year old!
This free-shipping offer applies to any order – doesn’t matter if you order just one bottle or a truckload. You’ll get free shipping to anywhere they ship. (Yes, the free shipping applies to international orders, too!) No coupon code is necessary.
I’m new to “the Cult” and am not affiliated with them (I wish! Maria, contact me…hehe!), but after trying out Unicorn Puke, Hypnotize Me, and Iconic so far, I quickly became a huge fan. If there are any colours you’ve been itching to try, seize the savings!
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
In A Trance by Cult Nails is a stunning polish that’s fuss-free and that shimmers brilliantly. If you’re a fan of olive polishes, this is one of the best!
Are you ‘in the Cult’ yet? Will you be taking advantage of the free shipping? What’s your ‘comfort polish’?
