Smith & Cult in Bitter Buddhist

Smith & Cult Bitter Buddhist

My obsession with Smith & Cult is not dying any time soon. It’s safe to say that I’m becoming even more obsessed. This summer I was on the lookout for a seafoam green nail polish. I kept searching for OPI Mermaid Tears but couldn’t find it anywhere. I then searched for an alternative, and although this isn’t the same shade as the OPI color, Bitter Buddhist is exactly what I had my mind on. Plus it looks awesome on your toes! The application was seamless as per usual.

Summer is the perfect time to head out to Long Island for the weekend. We drove to Montauk, which is at the eastern end of the island, for some exploring. We decided to check out the Montauk Lighthouse—the first lighthouse in New York State and the fourth oldest in the U.S. Being here felt like that Gossip Girl episode when the gang is in the Hamptons. Très chic!

Smith & Cult Regret the Moon
Loved how my mani looked in the sunlight! Wearing Smith & Cult Regret the Moon.
On our way back to the city we learned that it was National Ice Cream Day so we made a pit stop at a local Carvel for some ice cream. I opted for the Orange Sherbet. So delicious!
How’s your summer so far? Have any of you visited Montauk?

Smith & Cult Polish in Regret The Moon

Smith & Cult Regret The Moon
 
Once the weather starts getting warmer, I love playing around with different nail colors. One of my favorite nail polish brands is Smith & Cult. Their colors are so unique, the formula is amazing, and the color is long lasting. You can never go wrong with white once summer rolls around. Plus wearing white looks so good when your skin is tanned.
 
The color above is Regret The Moon and it’s a great shade of white (Net A Porter’s photos don’t quite capture the color). Some white polishes can be super streaky making it hard to apply to the nails. The formula on this polish is so smooth. No streaks or bubbles. Regret The Moon is not such a bright white that ends up looking too heavy. It’s the perfect balance and shade. To achieve the opacity above I used two coats.
I’m honestly so obsessed with this brand and would like to build my collection of all their polishes. The packaging is so beautiful, chic, and luxe. I already purchased this seafoam green color from Net A Porter, and I can’t wait to try it and upload swatches for you all. And in case you missed it, here is my post on Smith & Cult’s Fauntleroy, a delicate lavender. The post is almost reaching 200 views! Thank you for reading!

Smith & Cult Polish in Fauntleroy

Smith and Cult Fauntleroy

Once I saw former Lucky mag EIC Eva Chen post on her Instagram a photo of her recent lavender mani, I knew I had to get my hands on her exact polish. Luckily (no pun intended) she captioned the polish brand and the color. And there I went immediately Googling it so I can get my hands on it.

I introduce to you Smith & Cult in Fauntleroy – the prettiest, most girly, and whimsical purple polish ever! I’m completely obsessed with this color. I love it so much that I really wish I bought it sooner so that I could’ve rocked it since the beginning of summer. But we must not live our lives with regret…

And let me not get started on the bottle. Although it is indeed top heavy, the small bottle is perfect to display on a desk or vanity. And the formula? Amazing! It goes on perfectly smooth. The price tag might hurt a little but I think this polish brand is well worth it. If you’re still on the fence on whether you should try this brand simply opt to just get this color. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
