About Smith and Cult & Inspo for My Mani
This week’s mani is inspired by the curated selection of top-selling Smith & Cult luxe nail lacquers newly available on Ulta.com. Smith & Cult polishes are vegan, cruelty-free and 8-free. My favorite part of this brand is the bottle design. These stylish bottles are perfect display pieces!
What You’ll Need
To create this look I used:
Step 1: Apply Smith & Cult Basis of Everything Base Coat* to protect your natural nail and prolong the wear of your mani.
Step 2: Apply Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer ‘The Message’* to the nails on your thumb, index, and pinky fingers.
Step 3: Apply Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in ‘Pillow Pie’* to the nails on your middle and ring fingers.
Step 4: Stamp the face image from the Beauty Big Bang 036 Stamping Plate—using TwinkledT in ‘Glow Up’ for the outline and filling in the petals with Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer ‘The Message’*—onto your middle finger.
Step 5: Stamp the rose image from the Beauty Big Bang 036 Stamping Plate—using TwinkledT in ‘Glow Up’ for the outline, filling in the petals with Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer ‘The Message’*, and filling in the leaf with Clear Jelly Stamper ‘#77 Lush Leaf’—onto your ring finger.
Step 6: Apply, Moyou London Smudge Resistant Premium Top Coat to the nails that have been stamped (middle and ring) to protect the designs from smudging.
Step 7: Apply Smith & Cult Above It All Top Coat* to all nails.
