Cult Nails Wanna Be

Do you ever buy a nail polish because the color reminds you of a good memory? That's exactly why I needed this Cult Nails polish.

My mom has never even worn the smallest amount of makeup since I've been alive. She never owned makeup. She's not a makeup person in the least bit. However, I remember when I was younger she had this one Revlon nail polish in the bathroom closet. Whenever we'd go out to nice dinners or something like that my mom would paint her nails and mine this Revlon color.

I cannot tell you for the life of me what the color was called. This was the early 90's and I would of recognized it if it were still around. My mom definitely no longer has it either. The first time I saw Cult Nails Wanna Be, my first that was "That's the color!". I had to have it.

Wanna Be
Wanna Be is a medium coppery pink base with intense copper and gold shimmer.

Color: This color is really hard to describe. The base is a kind of a mix of a red, copper, and pink. The color is very richly pigmented and it's infused with this amazing shimmer. I love this color. It's so unusual in comparison to other polishes out there now. This is a great color for fall, and I'd consider it a neutral. This color would go with plenty of colors you'd wear.

Formula: Excellent 2 coat formula.

Price: I do believe this will be available individually for purchase at some point? Currently it's available for $24 in the collection set with 2 other polishes.

Overall: This is a winner polish to me. This is exactly like the color my mom had back in the early 90's. It brings back a lot of memories for me, but it's also really a great color now. It's unique, it works for the season, and it can work with anything.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Wednesday!


  1. Aww that's a great memory! And a lovely color, to boot!

  2. Your story reminds me of the lonely bottle of Cutex polish my mom had. It had a tall, thin, white cap that ended at an angle and it was always out of reach! I can't recall the color or if I even saw my mom use it, but I still remember the exact spot where it was on her vanity... I really should go through some old pictures to see if I can spot it :)

  3. Nice shade for fall, but probably too much pink in the brown for my coloring - I do pink-pink fine but when I get into browns and beige with pinks I look really bad!

  4. What a pretty coppery pink this is! Don't see a lot of colors like this too.

  5. This is a pretty shade for fall. I like the shimmers and finish of it. What a nice memory. I don't think my mom even owned a bottle of nail polish. She did use a little makeup but we're talking minimal like 3 products. I've more than made up for that. That reminds me of an old polish I have by Sally Hansen called Antique Bronze only yours is a couple of shades darker like it's big sister. I love that beautiful copper penny color!
