Hello readers! Today I wanted to share with you my manicure of choice for the week. Chanel Frenzy has long been my all time favourite grey / beige / lilac shade so when I saw this offering from cult brand Smith & Cult in my local Space NK branch, I could not help but add it to my ‘wish-list!’
Smith & Cult was designed by the founder of 90’s brand Hard Candy. I spent many a day as a teen swooning over Hard Candy nail polishes with the little plastic ring in a similar hue attached to the bottle. The price has gone up a little since the Hard Candy days, but when a company get the formula and colour spot on like Smith & Cult seem to have done, that £19 seems money well spent.
Imagine my excitement when my lovely Mum bought me two colours and a top coat for Christmas. Today’s post is dedicated to ‘Doe My Dear’ described as an opaque dove grey.
The nail colour applied very smoothly and was easy to get a tidy neat finish. This particular manicure was two coats of the polish.
I have finished the manicure with the Smith & Cult top coat named ‘Above It All’. First impression was, whilst lovely, was perhaps an unnecessary purchase from the collection- but I stand corrected! This top coat gives an extremely glossy ‘plumped up’ look with extreme clarity and shine.
I can’t wait to try my other shade and report back to you all. I am really excited about this brand and can’t wait to explore more of the collection in the coming months.
Smith & Cult are 5 free (formulated without nasties), offer a lovely range of colours and have graced the pages of Vogue. What more could a beauty addict want!
Talk to you all soon x
