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 bubblegum pink 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.

I am obsessed with this packaging

This polish is the bomb! Polish never stays on my nails but this polish looked good for almost a full week (which is good in my opinion). The packaging is the prettiest nail polish packaging I have ever seen.

I immediately purchased more colors - love this polish!

Cute Color, But Not What I Paid For

The image featured for City Of Compton appears to be a coralish pink. I got tulip pink. Still a pretty color, but I have something very similar to it and wouldn't have spent $18 on a color I already own. Quality is great, it stays on like OPI and doesn't chip. Packaging is also beautiful. Just don't absolutely fall in love with the color you are purchasing, because you might get a variation of it.

Love this nail polish!

The color of this nail polish is so pretty! The formula is very smooth, and easy to apply. Love the packaging as well... Just wish the top was a little lighter.

Great Color

As others stated, this color has a bit more of a purple hue to it as opposed to what's pictured. It's still a great color pink for spring. The small cap/brush set-up makes it super easy to apply. I think the consistency of the polish is thicker than your run of the mill drug store polish. Dried pretty fast, too! Can't wait to put another coat of polish on tonight when I get home! Definitely worth the $18/bottle!
