Before I talk about Devious Nature, I'd like to address the packaging. I love the packaging, but I was disappointed to see that my two bottles were badly scratched up all the way around the caps when I got it. It's not a big deal, but it just really annoys me to see dull scratch marks on new bottles. I even went at it with a wet paper towel in the hopes that it would wipe off. I was just going to over look it, but these bottles weren't cheap, so I contacted Maria of Cult Nails about it. She actually got back to me within a few hours! Maria let me know that there were some problems with the caps being scratched and that it has been addressed with her filling manufacturer. So it shouldn't be a problem with any future productions. She also told me that she'll try to get some extra caps over if the manufacturer is willing to send over spare caps. :) Overall, I'm impressed with the quick response and helpfulness, so I'm willing to over look the scratches. :P I was actually going to wait and see if I'll be able to get new caps before posting, but I gave in. I had to try this. ^^
Now on to the polish! Here's what Cult Nails has to say about Devious Nature: "Devious Nature is a beautiful hot pink. Based in berry tones, Devious Nature is not just another pink!" I couldn't agree more! The formula was great; this went on like butter. However, you do need to kind of get the hang of how much to put on your nail. If you're not able to cover your nail at once, the polish might dry and become uneven. I do wish the brush was a tad bit bigger, but it's not bad. Okay, now I'm going to say something I rarely say and you might not agree...but I think this is a careful (thick) one coater. Let me show you.
This is 3 coats, except one. Can you guess which one is the one coater? Of course there's a difference, but it's so miniscule you can't really tell unless you're looking for it at the distance shown in this pic. Usually I'd still go with at least 2 coats, but since this is a limited edition, I'm happy to use 1 coat if it'll prolong the use of this polish. I think this is going to be my go to pink for this summer. The splash of berry in here makes it unique, and it's the reason why I adore it. The finish is also very glossy and squishy like, so that it's like a creme-jelly hybrid. Overall, I love it, which makes me sad that it's not a permanent part of the collection.
The one coat thing seems to be an outlier. When I applied it to my nails again, I noticed you need at least 2-3 coats. So I guess I just got lucky that time. :P
