Smith & Cult’s Nailed Lacquer gives flawless coverage and brilliant shine, but that’s not all we love about the unique brand.

I had been dying to try Smith & Cult’s Nailed Lacquer ever since I saw a friend wearing Dirty Baby, a color packed with ultra-fine silver glitter suspended in an obsidian base. I hadn’t heard of the brand before so I was curious to see what they were all about. When I checked out their site I was immediatly impressed with how unique the brand is compared to all the other polish brands on the market.

Not only do all of their Nailed Lacquers have fun, sassy names, but each description includes an excerpt from Smith & Cult founder Dineh Mohajer’s personal diary. Mohajer is the same creative genius who founded  Hard Candy, a successful cosmetics line she sold to French luxury powerhouse, LVMH in 2009. She clearly knows a thing or two about creating high-quality, niche brands that speak to beauty lovers.”I want a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I want to do nothing to deserve it,” reads the description of Shattered Souls. This is a fun and cheeky way to give fans an inside look at the diary of a beauty junkie and the thoughts that inspired her to create each shade.

Smith & Cult has further distinguished themselves from other brands with their 5-Free formula. Every polish in the line is free of dibutyl Phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Even without these typical ingredients, Smith & Cult’s high-performance Nailed Lacquers really deliver. Their long-lasting colors glide on smoothly and look fresh for days. My favorite color is Gay Ponies Dancing in the Snow. Its description reads, “Last night I had a dream that felt like I was in a car wreck involving gigantic ice cream sundaes and a gang of studio 54 stragglers.”

Nailed Lacquers are available at Smith & Cult, Net-a-Porter, C.O. Bigelow and top salons nationwide.
