The best base coat

I will use nothing but this as a base coat. It is simply perfection - it protects the nail, and extends the wear of the Polish.

This is the best base coat made

I used this base coat for years and loved it. Then the formula was changed and it wasn't as good. Smith and Cult listened to customers and the old formula is back. I do my own nails, and I've never had great nails (they tend to chip and peel easily), but this last manicure I gave myself is going on a week and I've only noticed one tiny chip today on one nail. It's truly marvelous. Plus, I think a company that listens to customers deserves our support!!! So happy to have the original base coat back!

FAQS

Why is the cap on my nail lacquer dented?

The deliberate denting you see on Smith & Cult’s packaging serves a dual purpose; personality and precision. Our brand represents beauty that embraces imperfections; the pristine high-end packaging married to the differentiating indentations represents just that. The added bonus to our one and only denting design is the grip factor – use the dents for a sturdier hold. The nail lacquer cap also houses a petite cap for those that prefer even more precision.

Are your nail polishes vegan?

Yes! There are no animal derived ingredients in our polishes, and they have not been tested on animals.

Are your polishes toxic chemical free?

All Smith & Cult polishes are 8-free, meaning they are formulated without eight harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polish: No Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide, & Triphenyl Phosphate. We’re all about clean formulas with compromising on performance!
