theBalm. I’d heard the raves, seen the coveted A+ ratings, but up until recently, I hadn’t tried any of theBalm’s palettes.

Cult Nails Lets Get Dirty CULT NAILS Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Nail painting is one beauty ritual I really don’t enjoy, mostly because I’ve just never gotten good at it. I don’t have the patience for streaky or uneven formulas – I’d rather just skip nail polish or go with a sheer nude.
