Vintage: Cutex Ultra Sable

Here's a blast from my past! My boyfriend found my old backpack that I owned from high school. I'm about to turn 35 in July so high school was a long time ago. Inside it was a bottle of nail polish: Cutex Ultra Sable.


I'm guessing this is from the very late '90s. See how nasty the side of the bottle is? I'm surprised I got enough polish out of this to swatch one hand. I had to add a ton of polish thinner to it in order to use. It has a metallic finish so it's rather brushstroke-y and shows every little imperfection. Application was ROUGH but I'm sure that's because of its age. I had to top it with Seche Vite because I don't think it would have dried on its own so it looks even more wonky with weird shrunken bits.


After I swatched my one hand, I showed it to my boyfriend and he said "I like it!" I was probably wearing it when we met. Does Cutex even make nail polish anymore?!

  1. There's still a lot of streaks left but when I topped it with Seche Vite, it muted them somewhat.
