The Cult Cosmetics Blackbox for October 2013 was a hit with me. They released their own polish line, called “Cult” and this month we got three of their polishes and their base coat.
Their marketing states that all their polishes are one-coaters. I decided to try it out. I did not find this to be true. It was a little streaky with just one coat. HOWEVER, the application was awesome. It was smooth and creamy and it was easy to get clean application. So what if I still want two coats? I am very happy!
The basecoat reminded me of Orly Bonder. Once it dried, it was a little rubbery looking. I won’t know how I like it until tomorrow. I have to see if if changes how much polish gets chipped. :)

I decided to try out Joshua Tree for the test described above. I think the color is a very nice, flattering neutral.
