I'm Obsessed: Smith & Cult Nail Polish

Welcome to I'm Obsessed, a new daily video series with InStyle's fashion and beauty editor at large, Kahlana Barfield. Check back every weekday to learn more about the beauty products and tools she can't get enough of.

They say never to judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to nail polish, we say that the ages-old idiom doesn’t exactly apply. After all, why dab on a colorful polish when its packaging doesn’t showcase just how well the lacquer—be it matte, shimmery, patterned, or two-toned—will decorate your hands? Thankfully, for those of us obsessed with the art of nails, presentation is key for all Smith & Cult products.

In the video above, Barfield explains that while the brand’s packaging is beautiful, it’s the fact that all of their smartly pigmented colors (be it a playful, trendy shade or a more classic one like the Pillow Pie blush tone Barfield sports in the video) are free of harsh, potentially harmful chemical ingredients.


Shop it: Smith & Cult's Pillow Pie (and all other shades), $18; net-a-porter.com.

[MUSIC] So one of the newest and coolest nail polish lines is a brand called Smith & Cult. And what I love about these nail polishes is that A, the packaging is gorgeous. There in these glass bottles, they're round, they have these amazing gold Tops, so they'll look really nice on your bathroom counter but the formulas what really makes them great. The colors are very nicely pigmented, very saturated. Trendy shade but then also very classic shades like pinks and beiges, I'm actually wearing one of their summer colors, it's called Pillow Pie and I love it. You know what's even better about these nail polishes? They're chemical free, so you don't have to worry about any harsh ingredients. And it's my new go to.
