I know this topic has been done before. But I did a quick search, and the threads I found were a few years old. I thought I would start a new one. (Hope that’s OK. I’m never sure which is better: start a new thread or resurrect an old one.) Also, apologies if there is a more recent thread about this. I just didn’t see it in my quick search.
So, as the question asks: Do you have a favorite brand of nail polish? And, if so, what is it? Any reason as to why?
My favorite brand is OPI. I typically love their colors. And I love, love, love the size and shape of their brush. It feels so comfortable to me when I’m painting my nails, and seems to be the perfect size/shape for my nail shape.
I am really starting to like China Glaze more and more, too. On my most recent Ulta trip, I saw the new Hawaii Collection from OPI, and didn’t love any of them. I felt so disappointed. Today, I went back (needed cuticle cream), and they had a little sample pack for the new China Glaze Road Trip Collection. LOVE IT!! I can’t wait to wear some of those. I’m currently rocking China Glaze “Ruby Pumps” on my nails and absolutely love it. To the point where I feel I am a little bit obsessed — ha, ha!

Napoleon Perdis. Goes on smoother than OPI.

I’ve never heard of that brand. I’m definitely going to check it out. Thanks for the tip and info!

Pacifica. It’s 7 free (although I think it’s more like 6 free because they count not testing on animals as “animal free”). I’m all for anything that doesn’t contain as many chemicals but still works well

I like Essie, Opi and China glaze. Also gelish has some really great gel colors.

Fun topic/thread resurrection!
I exclusively wear Scotch Naturals because the product consistently dries with a nice finish, the color names are cheeky (my top 2 colors right now are Widow Woods’ Nightcap and Bitter n’ Twisted), and they are non-toxic and come in cute bottles.

Butter London. I have tried a lot of brands – cheap to very expensive. It’s my fav! Illamasqua is also excellent!

Its a tie between Butter London and Zoya! Zoya polishes are the only ones that stay on my nails for a week straight with no touchups. I didnt think that was possible for me!

I love Essie for regular manicures and CND Shellac for gel manicures. I am also a fan of Urban Outfitters polish colors but find they chip very quickly.

OPI, Orly and China Glaze are my favorites.

I had to order a bunch of mac products so I grabbed a few polishes to try, pretty colors but I’m not impressed with the staying power. Caveat: I’m hard on nail polish.
Back to Essie and Butter London.

Essie is my favorite.
But my all time favorites are a base coat and top coat by Revlon that keep me chip free for like 2 weeks no joke.

I beat my nails up a lot, but they are naturally strong and can be easily maintainted on the longer side. I get compliments all the time on them, even without polish. I really like Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure. I don’t have the time or patience for a base/top coat (or usually my nails at all, but since the e-ring, I’ve been painting!), and it seems to last somewhat the longest of those I’ve used without them. I love Earl Grey, Wine Not, and Gilty Party best out of that line.

I’m a nail polish fiend, and I by far love Zoya! zoya actually single handedly started my Nail polish Addiction! I also love A Eboland polishes, man they are beautiful! As far as a topcoat/base coat I always use the Butter London Nail Foundation and Top Coat. Find it holds and keeps any colour better than any other topcoat/basecoat I’ve tried!
