A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing around my local Blue Mercury with my mom when I came across a new nail polish brand that I had heard rave reviews but had not had the opportunity to try for myself, Smith and Cult. As I perused the display my eyes caught the color, Stockholm Syndrome. I quickly tested it out the polish on my thumb and I fell immediately head over heels in love with the heather grey, almost stormy purple color.
As I walked away from the checkout counter with my new little addition, I could not be happier with the nail polish. Though these polished are on the rather expensive side, a whopping $18, it dawned on me as I drove away that I might have made an impulse purchase. Though after testing and trying the polish out over the next month or so, I am happy to say I am still as much in love with the nail polish as I was the days I laid eyes on it.
Smith and Cult nail polish is absolutely worth the price. One thing that I had not realized when I bought it was that is a “5-Free” nail polish, which means it is made without harsh and toxic chemicals. As someone who tends to have dry, brittle nails this is good news for me. The other major selling point is the quality of the polish, with one sweep the color is completely covering the nail and you are ready to go, I usually do two coats just to be safe though. The polish also lasts for about a week, give or take a day, without chipping. Also looking at the line in person and online, all of the colors are original and not like something you have in your collection. Also the packaging is what gives you that luxury feel, while it may not be easy to store, the circular bottle with hammered metal top (which is removed to reveal a smaller handle that is easier to manage when you are painting) gives you the luxury and high-end feel that you want with these cosmetics.
It is safe to say that Smith and Cult has taken over my heart when it comes to nail polishes and I don’t see this being a short affair.
