The Nail Polishes (And Brands!) That Will Always Have My Heart

The Nail Polishes (And Brands!) That Will Always Have My Heart

Let's be real: we all have our go-to nail polish stored deep in our hearts. This is the polish that you reach for when there is no room for chipping/fast-fading/[insert your most hated nail polish woe here]. It is the polish you buy again and again because it never fails you.

Finding a nice color and formula may be hard to some but don’t worry, after testing endless brands of nail polishes, I'm here to point you towards some tried-and-true options.

Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear In Pacific Blue

This is not your average blue. I love this vibrant and electrifying shade. It's perfect for summer and complements every skin tone on the planet. 

Not only is this color super rich, the formula applies easily and is long-lasting. In fact, in my experience, this stays put for at least a week before any signs of wear start appearing. Oh and you can't beat the affordable price.

Zoya's Brigitte

If you are ever on the hunt for the perfect flattering nail shade for your skin tone, look to Zoya and never look back. They have a wide selection of colors that look fantastic on everyone. They are also a vegan brand!

My aforementioned pick (Brigitte) hails from Zoya's Naturel Collection. It's a stunning satin dusty rose with warm undertones. Simply beautiful. Plus, it holds up for a respectable amount of time, post-application. Try it. You'll be as obsessed with it as I am.

SinfulColors' nail polishes are an excellent starter brand for those who are only just venturing into nail polish land, but their selection will also appeal to seasoned cosmetic veterans.

This white shade claims to be a "bold, vibrant, must-have color" and is apparently toluene, formaldehyde and DBP-free. Good?

I happen to DIG white nails, as they are chic and fun and this polish is particular has yet to do me wrong. And, if you're worried about the brittleness of your nails, pick up some of SinfulColors' base and top coats, which are unexpectedly stellar.

Well, there you have it. Those are my favorite nail polish brands and hues. Share yours with me via Twitter. Like, really, please do. I'm not just saying that as a way to wrap up this piece.
