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). Featuring an opaque poppy red hue, this covetable 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.

Lasts so long

I have had my nails done at the birchbox soho store several times this year, and have chosen smith and cult the past few times. The color quality is amazing, and it lasts a full week - and I am a person who chips her nails after 3 days.

Amazing color

This is the perfect red with just a hint of coral. It's classic without being boring. I love that it is 5-free and it goes on so smoothly and lasts for days. Only thing is it stains the nails (I am very fair), so make sure to use a base coat.

A gorgeous red. Bright, cherry red. One coater---wears well. The gold part pops off to reveal a smaller cap, making it easy to handle.

I'll be collecting them all...

This polish is by far the best that I've ever tried. My nails are naturally thin, bend easy, peel at the end etc. No polish lasts longer than 8 hours without showing chips. This looked great on my nails for two whole days and that's something. Coverage is fantastic, dries quickly, color is vibrant. Dries with a great shine also.

I can't gush enough over Smith & Cult! And this color is just lovely! I usually do three coats, just because I like the thickness- but you can use two!
About the polish- I have very brittle, bendy nails. Polish lasts *maybe* one day before peeling off. The only thing that ever worked for me was gel nails.... which gets expensive fast- not to mention damaging! For the cost of one gel mani, I can get two bottles of Smith & Cult and have color that lasts!
This polish doesn't, of course, last as long as gel polish- but it's SO much better for my nails! I wear it for 3-4 days at a time and it always looks manicure fresh!
