Following suit of the post I previously published in May containing a whopping 17 swatches of Smith & Cult nail polishes, here’s the sequel: Smith & Cult Nail Polish Swatches Part 2!
This post features nine shades that I’ve shown on social media, along with the captions I wrote, which were inspired by the colours.
I’m a big (and relatively new) fan of Smith & Cult nail polishes. They’re billed as a luxury nail polish with a bottle that certainly lives up to its claim. It’s heavy and large, with a unique cap with an asymmetrical design. Even from bottle to bottle, the cap is a little different.
I am so in love with the bottle design that I chose to display some of my Smith & Cult nail polishes on the shelf, so that I could admire them more often! (Since posting the below photo on my social media, I have a second row of polishes. The collection is growing quickly!) 😉
Although the cap is large, it can easily be removed, as it’s only a cover for the smaller, normal-sized handle that makes painting your nails easy. The brush wand is very short, but I found that it gave me greater control when painting.
In general, Smith & Cult nail polishes have a great formula, and there are a wide variety of colours to choose from. Most tend to be opaque, but I’ve run into a few with sheer formulas. All were easy to paint with and glided onto the nails smoothly.
Smith & Cult nail polishes can be purchased from the official Smith & Cult website, Bergdorfs, Neiman Marcus, Bluemercury, C.O. Bigelow, Space NK, NET-A-PORTER, and Selfridges.
If you’re in Canada like me, there are a number of spas and salons that carry the brand. To see the long list, check out the “Where to Buy” section located in the “Key Notes”, which can be found in my in-depth Smith & Cult She Said Yeah review. (In that review, you can also see photos of the brush and what it looks like when you remove the cap, in case you’re curious.)
