If there’s one beauty product you won’t catch me without, it’s definitely nail polish! Manicured, glossy nails are one of my favourite things to sport so I’ve tried out a ton of formulas over the years. Whilst some of them have chipped within a day, I’ve found some incredible ones that deliver long wear and amazing pigmentation. Here are the details on my preferred formulas!
When I first came across this nail lacquer, I was a bit skeptical at its claims. However, you will now find me toting a bottle of it to almost every pedicure appointment! The long-lasting formula delivers a shiny coat of colour and incredible pigmentation in just two swipes. If you are a fan of red nails, I would highly recommend picking up a bottle of ‘Scarlet Red’.
Who here hasn’t heard of OPI? The brand literally produces nail polishes in every colour you can think of, without sacrificing on quality. With an easy-to-use brush and buildable formula, this lacquer is great for when you need to give yourself a manicure. Whilst I’m a fond of a ton of shades from this line, I have a weak spot for the unusual hues like ‘Dreams Need Clara-fication’, which is beautiful periwinkle blue. If you prefer a clean and minimal vibe, I would suggest getting your hands on ‘It’s In The Cloud’, which is a creamy white shade.
No one does luxury quite as well as Chanel does. The brand’s array of nail paints deliver a smooth layer of colour that stays glossy and chip-free for days. ‘New Dawn’, a deep brownish-mauve, is one of my favourites when I’m opting for a sophisticated look.
Whenever I’m about to travel, I always turn to this range. Not only are the colours super pretty, but the longevity also rivals that of a gel nail polish. Since I can’t be bothered to touch-up my tips (especially when I’m on vacation), this line is ideal for me. You will often find my nails coated in ‘Sit Me In The Front Row’, which is a berry pink colour, or ‘Spool Me Over’, a soft apricot hue.
This is another range that does funky colours well! Apart from being chip-resistant and ultra shiny, the formula also delivers on beach holidays as it’s water-resistant. I’m a huge fan of ‘Iris Illusion’, which is a shimmery lilac lacquer.
