Smith and Cult Bitter Buddhist Doe My Dear Nail Polish Review Swatches

Smith and Cult Nailed Lacquer: A Love Affair

How beautiful are the Smith and Cult nail polish bottles?!?

Nail Polish and I have a rollercoaster type of love.

At times, we have bi-weekly romantic dates and hang around each other all the freaking time, but then, all of a sudden, the magic stops and we spend weeks, months even, barely seeing each other.

I have to admit that it’s usually me the one who calls it quits. But you know, sometimes I feel like I’m making too much of an effort for too little in return… Like, I really have to work hard at our relationship every two or three days, otherwise it’ll quickly start falling apart… Which makes me wonder if it’s really worth it.

But then, just when I least expect it, he comes back as a completely improved version of himself. Like, last time, he showed up in the form of Smith and Cult Nailed Lacquer.

Oh man, I just couldn’t resist him!

As vain as it sounds, it was his looks that made me fall for him at first… But c’mon, just look at him! Can you blame me? He’s the most beautiful nail polish I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

But his good qualities go way beyond that, and he really is as amazing on the inside as he is on the outside. He likes hanging out with me no matter what we’re doing. He even comes swimming with me and is not bothered by the pool water at all… Which had never happened before with any of the others!

Some days he’s a little Bitter (Buddhist) for the times I pushed him away, but all I need to do is tell him ‘(Doe) My Dear, I’ve never met anyone like you, I’ll never leave you again’, and everything is forgotten.

I really feel like I may have found The One, but I guess… Only time will tell! 😉

Have you ever tried Smith and Cult Nailed Lacquers? What’s your favorite nail polish? And what type of relationship do you have? Do you see each other often or only on very special occasions?

    Such a cute idea for a post! I always wear nail polish, if I don’t my boyfriend asks me if I am sick 🙂

    I love Essie nail polishes the most, then Zoya and OPI but your two picks look gorgeous too! I have not tried this brand yet!

      Thanks, Agata! 🙂
      I really like Essie nail polishes too, they have my favorite kind of brush. I’ve never tried Zoya, but would love too!

    These bottles truly are gorgeous and I’ve yet to hear any bad things about the actual nail polish formula so far!

    Both colours are really great! I love those pastel colours for spring and summer, because if you have brown tanned skin, those pastels look great :-*

    Oh I’m in love with that purple!! And the bottles are so pretty as well. 🙂 I usually go for L’oréal or Barry M polishes as I don’t particularly like to spend on varnishes.

    We used to go steady for the last six months, but having a baby changed everything. We just don’t get to see each other anymore.
    These bottles are cute, though, and I just purchased a few Essie minis to rekindle my love affair.

    I’m the same with nail polish, sometimes I can’t stop wearing it and lately it’s been months since I’ve worn anything on my nails. It just tends to go in waves for me.

    Absolutely love the look of both of these polishes as well, so interested in this brand as well.

    The name Bitter Buddhist is quite odd, but the shade looks gorgeous.

    I haven’t tried the Smith & Cult nail lacquers yet, but it’s definitely on my bucket list. The problem is that I already have so many polishes I never use… Both shades you have look amazing!

    This is the second review that I’ve read on this brand, was unheard of previously! I have my eyes on Doe My Dear, the other blogger picked up that shade too and it’s such a perfect nude.

    I am the complete same when it comes to painting my nails! One minute I’ll be doing it regularly, then the next I’ll completely forget that nail polish exists haha. I have never tried these polishes, but both shades look absolutely beautiful on you. My favourite formula has always been the nails inc. ones. But I want to venture out and try some others this Spring and also get into the habit of actually painting them again haha.:D – My Full Coverage Foundation Routine
