Notable Nail Polishes

I'm going to be writing a list of brands that I do like and don't like, and if I have any special comments I'll add those too. Read past the jump if you're interested!

My all time favorite brand is Essie, hands down. I love the bottles, I love the brushes, I love the colors, and I love the formula.


  • Essie (duh)
  • OPI
  • Butter London - Way too expensive for just a normal polish, but the formula is butter!
  • Sally Girl (from Sally's) - These are tiny little bottles, so I do like them because usually when I buy a color it's specific for one manicure and they're only 99c. 
  • Revlon Color Stay - Super long lasting
  • Milani glitter polishes (however, I'm not crazy about the regular colors)
  • Wet n Wild Megalast - Very inexpensive but I love the quality
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
  • Nails Inc. from Sephora
  • Zoya - I love, love, LOVE ZOYA. Everything about it. 
These are the ones that I generally like:
  • Sinful Colors - Pretty inexpensive, and nice quality as well
  • Orly
  • Maybelline Color Show
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - I really like using these when they're brand new, but because of the brush shape I find them hard to manage when they're older polishes
  • Revlon
  • Spa Ritual -They're really nice but can be expensive. They're also vegan! 
These are the ones I dislike:
  • NYC - I find their polishes to be very poor quality. I have trouble with drying, opacity, and chipping when I use this polish
  • Love & Beauty from Forever 21 - I used to swear by this brand when I wasn't really looking for super good quality, but I definitely have trouble with this adhering to even a base coat.
  • Wet n Wild Shine - Again, poor quality
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - I've had trouble with bubbling, and I find it gets thick very easily
  • China Glaze - Ew. Sorry, China Glaze lovers. I've only had success with 1 bottle. I can't stand the formula and it chips so easily and is waaaay too expensive for the quality you get. This is my least favorite polish.
I'll update this list if I find any more brands worth mentioning, or if my opinion changes on any of these polishes.
