I feel like it's rare for me to run across a (US-based) nail polish brand out in the wild that I've never heard of... but it does happen! When I was at the salon recently, I stumbled upon a new-to-me brand called Smith & Cult, so of course I had to grab a bottle and give it a try. The eye-catching, rocker-inspired display and packaging definitely helped draw me in, too.
As it turns out, Smith & Cult was founded by Hard Candy founder Dineh Mojaher, which explains the chic, edgy vibe of the brand. All the colors on display really appealed to me, and a quick skim through the brand's website will tell you why—they're gorgeous! But in the end, I decided to try She Said Yeah, a muted periwinkle cream, because I don't have any other polishes quite like it.
I wanted to create a look that was both playful and edgy with this polish to complement the overall vibe of Smith & Cult, which is how this mix & match design was born. She Said Yeah applied beautifully: two easy coats was all I needed for good coverage. And it layered well over OPI My Silk Tie, too, which is what I used as my base for the striped nail.
My Silk Tie may have also worked for the stamping, but Zoya Trixie is my go-to for silver stamping, so that's what I've used here. It just never lets me down. The plate is MoYou London's Princess 13 plate, and the silver studs on my thumb and little finger are from the Born Pretty Store.
Even weeks after buying the Smith & Cult polish, I still haven't seen much buzz about this brand. Has anyone else tried it? Let me know what you think!
Thanks for looking!
