‘Nail spring’… get it!? Oh come on, what else did you expect from someone who named her blog ‘Talonted Lex’? Everyone loves some pastels for spring, but who says we have to leave the glitter in the festive season? I’ve got three polishes from Smith & Cult to show you today and they are seriously beautiful – inside and out!
It goes without saying that I love the Smith & Cult packaging: the wide and squat bottles paired with the gold, slightly battered lids… just beautiful. Apparently when the polishes first launched, the founder used to bash the lids with a hammer herself to get that look! The lids are a little cumbersome, but I realised half way through the second manicure that they do actually detach to leave a smaller lid for easier application. Doh!
Smith & Cult Exit The Void* is a limited edition polish (those words always do something to me!) and it’s described as ‘a pop of perfect periwinkle’ which I love. The formula was a little chunky but everything smoothed out with a top coat to give a beautiful finish. This was three thin coats.
Smith & Cult Sugarette* (another limited edition shade) ‘a puff of white smoke’. Whites can be tricky to wear but this has a lovely pearly glow that helps it to look less stark. I’m not typically a fan of pearlised finishes as you have to be quite careful with application, otherwise the brushstrokes can look messy, but I think this is a really pretty colour and finish if you like these types of polishes.
Smith & Cult Glass Souls* – Oh glitter. My one true love! This is a clear based polish that’s packed with multi-sized silver glitter. This paired with ‘Exit The Void’ is a match made in heaven, they just look incredible together, as you can see below. This was ONE COAT of ‘Glass Souls’ and no glitter placement. Such a brilliant formula for a glitter!
Let’s get a close up of that glitter shall we…. * insert allllllll the heart eye emojis*
