Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed

Hey all!  Today I have Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed for you!  I wish I could tell you how many coats this was, but  I can't remember.  I'm pretty sure it's either 3 or 4.  Isn't it gorgeous?  Toxic Seaweed is a dark green jelly that leans aqua in certain lightings.  I would say my pictures came out more aqua, but this is more green than blue.  Indoors it's definitely green, but outdoors it's like an aqua leaning green.  What makes Toxic Seaweed unique are the fine gold glitters and the red to green shifting flakies swimming in it.  It's a lot prettier than I expected, and I don't think my swatches or any I've seen online really do it justice.  It's a pity, because I feel like this one didn't get the attention it deserved.  I would say this is like China Glaze Atlantis's greener, more mysterious sister.  Although it's just as sparkly! :)





Blurred to show you how sparkly it is!


In the shade: look at the red-green shift in those flakies!

Unfortunately, Toxic Seaweed was a limited edition shade, so it is no longer being sold on Cult Nails. :(

What do you think of Toxic Seaweed?  Were you able to get it?  Let me know in the comments! :)

  1. Thats so pretty! I have it and have only swatched it on a wheel. I don't want to use so many coats to get it opaque and can't decide what to use under it to show how pretty it is.

  2. I think 3 will give you pretty good coverage. Otherwise, I can't really think of a color off the top of my head that will be good for layering, especially if you're looking to get the bottle color. I'm thinking of layering it over China Glaze Atlantis, but that will alter the color...

  8. This is one of my favorite polishes because of how sparkly and unique it is. Thankfully, I ordered when Maria had the pre-sale, so I was one of the lucky ones ;0). So sad it's no longer available though.
