The Best Of: Nail Polish Formulas

When it comes to nail polish, I know what I like and I stick to it. The majority of the polishes I own come from the same four brands!The star of the show for me is of course, Essie. I just feel like the brand hits every point I expect, good price point, nice wide brush, quick drying formula, gel like finish, longevity good colour range and fantastic formula. You really can’t go wrong with Essie! My favourites include Watermelon, Summit of Style, Blanc, Dress To Kilt, Tarte Deco, Splash of Grenadine & Bahama Mama!Coming in a close second is an offering from Rimmel, specifically, the Salon Pro polishes. Again, these come in tops for longevity, good brush and long lasting formula, however the colour range is a little limited, and some of the shades need 3 coats for a good finish! Worth the compromise though for the awesome price! I love Hip Hop, Saturn and Disco Fever.Other amazing options come from the likes of Maybelline & Max Factor. Maybelline’s Super Stay Gel Polishes are incredibly long lasting, and whilst the colour range is minimal, there’s some real crackers in there. I love Berry Sorbet & Salsa, and I’ve got my eye on Pink Whisper, a pretty dusky pink. I’ve had a couple of minis of the Max Factor Glossfinity Polishes over the years and I’ve always been pleasantly surprised. The brush isn’t the best but these are seriously long lasting polishes, and the formula is a one coat wonder! I love the shadesWhat are your favourite polishes?
