Cult Nails Living Water

Oh my goodness you guys, you have no idea how excited I am to be posting this. Except I can't really think of words which is a problem. Hah!

I'm sure most of you know, blogger Maria of R3 Daily has started her own line of nail polish. I've been following her blog for months and I think it is incredible what she is doing! Today I'm going to share one of her polishes with you, one that is very special to me. My Cult Nails package came in the mail the day before my birthday which was perfect timing! I am so happy I got to wear this polish for my 19th birthday.

"LIVING WATER is a deep blue jelly polish with ice blue and emerald green glitter inspired by the phosphorescent sea-water and created by blogger Tierny."

Basically, blogger Tierney = me. Living Water is my dream polish. When Maria announced her contest for her followers create a color for Cult Nails I really wanted to enter.. but I'm not very creative. I sat there for quite awhile trying to think of something.. Then I guess it just sort of hit me I guess! One of my favorite things during the summer is to be on the boat at night and see the phosphorescence.. Last summer one of my uncles took me and some other people out on his boston whaler around midnight. They were looking for shooting stars but I kept getting distracted by the phosphorescence. I just love it! When I first saw it I was 12 years old and on a yacht club cruise. My stepdad was talking about it and I thought it sounded boring or something.. I remember just wanting to go back to the boat and go to bed. But he got me to stay by saying how it would look like Tinkerbell was in the water since I was obsessed with Peter Pan. I still like to think of phosphorescence as fairies swimming around. Anyway, when I finally came up with an idea for Maria's contest I got really excited. I'm still so excited that my idea won and that other people like it! Okay, enough of my rambling. Here are a couple pictures. I don't have many yet, I've had a hard time getting new ones. It's been very dark and cloudy here. The only day it was sunny was my birthday on Friday, but the wind was terrible! I tried taking a few pictures when I wasn't busy, which is what these are. I will add more pictures when I get them! I just couldn't wait any longer to post this though.

I suggest clicking on these pictures to make them bigger.

This polish is gorgeous.. and it is just what I imagined!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

I rarely say much about application, but I want you all to know that application was great! I had no issues.

Maria, thank you so much for this!! I can't wait to see what colors you come up with next!
Everybody, if you haven't already, be sure to check out CULT NAILS. You won't be disappointed.

I was trying to figure out if that Tierney was you and I'm glad that it is. Congrats on getting your dream color made! It looks so beautiful...I just got a bottle, and I'm gonna try to wear it sometime this week. :D

Oh my gosh Tier! I had no idea you created a nail color! You're such a badass! I love it. Totally gorgeous. I've been hearing a lot about Cult Nails, but I'm too poor to invest in anything that's not food (or cold medicine) right now. I'm so jealous!

I can't even imagine how exicting it must be to see your idea "in the polish" so to speak! I actually have a bottle, just haven't managed to try it out yet.
