Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Start with your favorite base coat, then apply two to three coats of color. Finish with a top coat for extra shine and protection.

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

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.

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

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

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.
