Ok, you take these little tablets and plop them into a glass or bottle of water and just like Alka Seltzer they fizz. OH MY GOSH I WAS Squealing like a school girl. The boyfriend, not very amused. My son, mildly amused and my mother says "Yeah we had those when I was a kid they were called fizzies". Obviously I am the only one amused. It is freaking cool though, they have no sugar (according to my bf, I didn't really care enough to actually read the package beyond the directions), they are only 5 calories and they ROCK! I got the punch flavor though I can't taste much right now but they also had Lemonade and Grape. It has a weak carbonated taste to it which gives it a little kick beyond regular Kool Aid. The non amused bf said it tasted like flat carbonation. I like it! I thought it would be a fantastic way to go to a restaurant and order water (for free) and end up with a flavored drink, especially for kids or people like me that don't drink (much) soda. My son did request the other flavors so I think he liked it.
Alright, now that I went way off topic with the drink let's move on to the completely non consumable Cool Aid. Let me tell you though, this Cool Aid rocks about as hard as Kool Aid. I wonder how many times one can possibly say Kool (Cool) Aid in one post.
This polish was the first from a new brand called Cult Nails which was launched in January 2011. The thing I love about this brand is that it was started by a blogger and MUA member Maria. Her blog R3Daily is great! I always try to support the little guy, or gal, trying to make it in the world with the big corporations. Cult nails makes it even easier for me to support by providing an awesome product!
My Kind of Cool Aid was the first polish for this brand. It is a gorgeous grayish purple creme that has the perfect amount of shimmer. I love how this color looks more purple in some lights and then more gray in others.
The application was great and I love the brush and bottle. Any application errors were definitely due to me coughing while I was trying to do my nails and had nothing to do with the polish. FYI violent coughing and painting your nails while sitting in bed do not work well together. I ended up with quite a mess on some of my cuticles.
