If you are an individual who is inclined to wear nail polish, you probably struggle with the idea of finding the best nail polish that you can possibly find. It's tempting to buy some of the more economical brands, especially when you go to your local discount store and you find dozens upon dozens of bottles of nail polish available for sale for less than $5 each. The problem is, you take them home, polish your nails and end up having half of it chip off before the next 24 hours is through. Are you really saving any money this way? You're certainly not saving yourself a lot of hard work. Of course, you could abandon the idea of buying nail polish all together and just go to the salon every time you want to get your nails done. However, that's time consuming and it's also very expensive. Perhaps your best solution is to buy high quality nail polish to begin with. Sure, it will cost you a little more money in the beginning, but when you consider how long it wears, it's probably worth it in the end. Below are five of the best brands that money can buy. If you're so inclined, check them out.
5. Jin Soon
This is a line that hasn't really been around all that long, but they're definitely one of the best. In fact, the first colors from this company only became available in 2012. At first, there were only five or six colors available that could serve as some solid staples which would go with just about any type of outfit. Today, much of that has changed. In fact, there are numerous colors that you can choose from and all of them last for days, or even weeks under the right circumstances. As a matter of fact, the company has become so popular that a lot of high-powered fashion icons use this brand to get their runway models ready. The nail polish isn't cheap, but it's also not nearly as expensive as you might think it would be. A single bottle will run you about $18. That said, it lasts so long that you can use one or two bottles for the entire year, so you're actually saving money in the process.
4. Sally Hansen
If you love color and you're in the mood for a bargain, this brand has you covered. One of the things that really sets this particular type of polish apart from everything else is that they've been around for decades. In fact, they were very popular during the 1960s and 70s when there weren't that many nail polish brands to choose from in the first place. That means they’ve had plenty of time to figure out what works and what doesn't. They currently have a selection of more than 500 colors available ranging from the tamest thing you can imagine to colors that actually change like the rainbow, depending on the angle at which you're holding your hand. There are two other things that set this brand apart. They're accessible because they're available for sale in practically every drug store and discount store like. Furthermore, you won't break the bank when you decide to stick with this brand. Depending on the color in question, you can purchase a bottle for anywhere from $5 to $10 a piece.
This company was founded in 1981. Since that time, it has become the go-to nail polish brand for everyone from top-shelf celebrities to the Queen of England. There are dozens of different shades to choose from and all of them are excellent in both their beauty and their durability. The brand is relatively easy to find at any high-quality store that sells nail polish. In addition, you can purchase several different colors in order to add to your collection because it's not prohibitively expensive. Granted, it costs a little bit more than some of the other brands that you might find at a discount store, but it's also worth the cost. Expect to pay anywhere from $10 to $18 dollars a bottle, depending on both the color and the exact location from which you purchase your nail polish.
This is not a nail polish that you'll find at your local discount store, to be sure. However, you can find it at stores like Nordstrom, Dillard's and other high-end shops. There are many things that make it special, not the least of which include the fact that it's never tested on animals. It's also made from clean materials and it's perfect for people that are trying to live a clean, healthy lifestyle. It's compatible for all skin types and it’s vegan to boot. For all of that, you can purchase the bottle for about $18. That's not bad when you consider everything you're getting. It's also worth noting that the nail polish provides a gel-like finish, one that looks (and lasts) like gel, yet isn't so difficult to take off when you're ready to change to a different color.
If you're looking for a color that you simply can't find anywhere else, this is the brand of nail polish that you probably want to be looking for. They're not available in stores, but you can purchase them from salons. Better still, they have over 200 different shades that are extremely hard to find. In truth, it's a perfect brand to use if you're looking for something that is genuinely unique because most people aren't going to go to the trouble of finding it. It's become something that is truly loved among those who do make the effort. It's also durable and long-lasting. The best part is that you only have to pay about $5 to $6 per bottle. It really doesn't get any better than that.
