From the photo I was expecting a really great neon pink/orange, but Psycho Candy is really just your average off-the-shelf coral. So much so I used Esse's Sunset Sneaks and Formula X's Power Source side by side and can't tell the difference between any of them. And at half the price, I think I'll stick with the those.

I love this nail polish line. Not only are the colors, names and bottles so cool, the nail polish is gorgeous and really stays on. I'm 5 days in with barely any chips. This color is amazing. I just ordered by second color!

Best Formula Ever!

Smith & Cult is my absolute favorite nail polish! The formula is gorgeous, glides on seamlessly, is long lasting & looks just as good as getting a professional mani! I love that its 5-free! Major bonus! Love Psycho Candy going into Spring & Summer! Try this polish out! You won't be sorry ;)

Pretty Dissapointed
Purchased

I do not feel the color representation was even close. I understand you can not capture it perfectly and there will be changes but this ended up very orange.

I expected the lid would not be round and look pressed up on one side but instead I got a very large and heavy glass bottle with a lid that looks like someone took a hammer to it. Again a little too far from the photos.

The brush is tiny, there is very little amount of stick between the brush and lid which causes the brush to flood. Control is very poor.

It was sent to me wrapped in a piece of gray material.

I was really interested in owning this as I love nail polish. This particular product however did not come close to what was represented in my opinion.

Great color - average quality
Purchased

First of all the color is fantastic - a little darker than your typical corals. What I especially love is how much this color "pops."

Unfortunately the polish formula itself is average at best. I found the formula to be thick and gooey, neither in a good way. As my polish dried more air bubbles started showing up (which I was able to mostly hide after applying my topcoat). I am surprised at how evenly the polish went on despite the polish formula which did not glide on with ease like most other nail polishes.

Overall this product is not worth the $18 which was pretty disappointing because I have been eager to try out a Smith & Cult polish for quite some time now.

Talk about coverage. This lacquer gave me full coverage with one coat.

The color is definitely a psycho pink, bright and great for summer.

I will definitely purchase again.

Awesome product and pretty for your vanity!

Adds flair to your nails and vanity, I love this polish. Almost $20 is no small fee for a little polish but give it a try, it's better than spending less on stuff that doesn't work. 5-free polish that really is vibrant and chip-resistant. Love love love, will buy more!
