I’m no polish snob!
Hello. My name is Christa and I love drug store nail polish!
I know. I know! How could this be?? They are too thick, too thin, they take too long to dry, they get goopy! They chip!
Yes. I appreciate that O.P.I is a beautiful formula, smooth as silk. Essie has gorgeous colors (although I do despise their tiny brush). I don’t question the quality of these and other high end polishes, but the cost!!
So. Here’s the deal. I can often get 4 or five colors of drug store polish for the same price as an O.P.I. To me. This is awesome! Especially when you’re talking about trendy colors. Nail art is HUGE right now and drug store polishes make it affordable for everyone!
I change my polishes often, so I don’t mind if they wear as long. It also doesn’t bother me that some of these polishes take a little extra care to apply.
Here are some of my favorites.
-Revlon. All Revlon. Beautiful colors. Easy application. Two coats is all you need. I find they last very well.
-Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro. This is a really nice smooth formula!
-Sally Hanson Hard as nails. Cheapest of the bunch! Super thick formula can be tricky! But I love it for dotting and other nail designs. It does stay tacky for a while after applying so a fast dry top coat is great.
I really enjoy these and all the others! I would like to hear your thoughts on this post. Which are you favorite drug store polishes. Or do you hate them all???
