Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer - Dark Like Me

Created by the beauty icon who launched Hard Candy (and sparked our polish obsession in the 90’s), Smith & Cult strikes that perfect balance between gorgeous and edgy (just look at their shade names to see what we mean). This covetable, moody merlot polish is vibrant, chip-resistant, and 8-free—meaning the formula is free of not-so-nice ingredients like dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, and triphenyl phosphate.

Don't get what you pay for here, tossed it same day I got it
Purchased

Was so excited to try this! Opened the box up right when I got it and started painting. I am so disappointed with the quality of this product. If you blind-tried this nail polish- you would have thought it was a polish you bought years ago as it doesn't paint smoothly at all and is so thick & sticky. The first coat didn't apply consistently... Took 3 coats to get it somewhat of a decent paint job look. You'd get a better manicure using a $3.99 product/brand from the drug store. ... I paid close to $20 for this bottle. Don't recommend it at all.. It only got 2 stars from me because the packaging and style of the bottle is dope.

Beautiful

This is a gorgeous color! I tried it after purchasing the luxe limited edition box last month. I did have to apply multiple coats to get it opaque but once it was on it was wonderful! with a topcoat my nails lasted almost a week without chipping. I'm not sure how well it'd do with no topcoat, but for reference, I used another brand with the same top coat and my nails started chipping the next day and I had to remove everything by day 3 because it was so bad.

Dark like me... after three coats
Purchased

This color is more of a mixed berry for the first and second coat, but after the third coat it's a rich, dark, sensual blood red color. Almost black, which is awesome. But you need multiple coats to achieve that color. Did not chip for three days, and I use my hands a lot at work. The bottle is gorgeous, want to buy other colors by Smith & Cult.

Great Color...great bottle design
Purchased

This is a great color, much like Chanel's Vamp, and it stays on for a long time! But the surprise is the bottle design, nice and ergonomic! I had much more control when applying the color.

Smith & Cult Dark like me
Purchased

I already had the lavender She said yeah before purchasing this. When you have BB points or want to splurge, this is the way to go. The polish is smooth and the colors are sexy. I'm loving this color because while many shades ride the line of a berry black, this is a true deep berry color. Love.

Gorgeous Color, Don't Love the Brush

First off, it's worth noting that this polish color looks very different in person. It's more of a deep purple, rather than the berry shade pictured on this site. Still, it is a gorgeous color, one that I would wear every day if I liked the packaging better. The brush is thick and flat, which I suppose should make it easier to apply in three easy strokes. I found it kind of gloppy, and the brush made it difficult to apply. Either there is too much product on the brush, or not enough, which is not an issue I have with polishes from other brands. I wonder if I just got a bad bottle? It's worth trying out more colors to make sure before I totally write the brand off. Such gorgeous colors!

Beautiful color and staying power
Purchased

I was about to order Lovers Creep when this caught my eye -- I have to admit, the name Dark Like Me swayed me! And I'm very glad it did; the color is beautiful and it's been on my toenails for more than a week with nary a chip. I can't wait to try more colors from this line!

Really like the shade
Purchased

I am new to wearing dark color on my nails - but LUV this shade! Also in luv with the packaging! I routinely get a manicure every two weeks and the color stays on for about 3/4 of that time.

Highly recommend - treat your self!
