Coldplay is Iconic

I went to see Coldplay in concert this week and it was very difficult decide on my concert manicure.  Naturally, a yellow manicure came to mind, but during the rainbow challenge I used my two favorite yellows.  I was revisiting the Cult Nails Feel Me Up, when another Cult beauty caught my eye - Iconic.

This was the one, what a perfect fit in name to go with Coldplay.  This is the fourth time I've seen them in concert and what strikes me so much with them is how much they seem to LOVE performing.  Chris Martin is so passionate when he performs.  You know he is enjoying performing as much as you are watching it.  For this reason they are one of my iconic bands.

The polish matches the band too, on the exterior it just seems like another red, but once you look deeper into it, you see so much more beauty and creativity.  

Cult Nails Iconic is a deep red creme with red flakies and a golden shimmer throughout.  It is truly stunning.  As with all of my Cult polishes, it goes on perfectly.  I've been so impressed with the formula and the color selections of this company.  Each collection they release there are more "must haves" that show up on my wish list.  I wish them well for their continued success!

Cult Nails can be found at their online store.  Be sure to check in on July 11th for when her daughter's collection debuts.  I love supporting a young entrepreneur!  (The colors are to die for as well, she clearly has a great eye for polish like her mom does.)

    1. It was a great concert! I've seen them a bunch and Chris Martin really gives it his all and he seems so happy while doing it. The first time we saw them in concert (back like eleventy billion years ago, right after they came out with Parachutes), I didn't really care for their music, but when I saw them live? I fell in love with them and I have been in love with them ever since (so much so we flew to Vegas to see them 4 years ago because we were going to be out of town when they were here!). I love this polish, another added bonus is I'm generally WAY hard on my nails and they are still not even showing tip wear after 3 days. This is unusual for me!

    1. Lol, music is like nail polish - everyone has things they love and don't love and it is so entirely subjective! I'm very much the type of person who always comes down on the side of "whatever floats your boat".

      I also think a lot of NP depends on the shape of the nail, the color of the skin, how easy or difficult it is to use the brush. Like, I love several Essie colors, but I HATE their brush. Others love their brushes. Personal preference of course.

      I definitely think people either love Coldplay or hate them, there is very rarely someone who is indifferent to them!
