I was super impressed with the shipping time. I order on a Tuesday and got my tracking number that same night. So they were probably mailed the next day (Wednesday). I recieved them on Saturday. See? Quick!
The owner of Cult Nails, Maria, is a blogger and nail polish fanatic just like many of us. On her blog, www.r3daily.com/, Maria often writes about the behind the scenes of starting her own company, creating new colors, and other interesting tidbits. It's nice to a company be so forthcoming and it makes me want to support her.
Cult Nails polishes retail for $10, which may seem a bit high to those of us used to paying drugstore prices. But really, I don't find the prices that bad for a small company just starting out. It isn't like creating mineral eyeshadows where you can make them at home; Cult Nails actually works with a lab to formulate each of her polishes. You can tell Maria puts a lot of thought and effort into working with the lab and picking the colors for the collections. Most of the colors are extremely unique and the formulas of the ones I have tried so far has been amazing. I feel like you know you are buying quality when you order from them because the owner really cares about her product.
Sorry if this seems overly gushing, but I just find it really inspiring that Maria went for her dream of starting her own company. I think of how many times I have thought, "I should do this" and never followed through with it because I was afraid of the work it would take or was afraid of not being successful.
But anyway, on to the pictures! I'll do swatches as soon as my nails stop being gross!
It came packaged in a Flat Rate Box.
The polishes look like little eggrolls wrapped in their packaging material. Cotton balls are also used as packing material, which I thought was cute and clever. Everything arrived packed well and nothing was damaged.
