Found It! Best Nail Polish

Posted January 11, 2013 by Marcy Twete in Building Your Brand
There’s nothing I love more than having perfectly manicured fingers and toes. But like most women, making the time for a weekly or even monthly manicure is sometimes a challenge. And somehow, my nails never seem to hold onto polish. I’ll spend money on a manicure and 12 hours later, it’s chipped to high heaven. I even tried (multiple times) the new “no chip” manicure, which is supposed to last two weeks. On me, it averaged 3-5 days. Imagine having to run to the drug store on your wedding day because your “no chip” manicure was coming off in sheets three days after you got it.

I’ve tried it all – no chip, OPI, essie, and even splurged on the ridiculously expensive Butter. And no matter what I do, I end up having to repaint in 2-3 days at most. Until now!

Enter Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure. I gave this a shot a while back just because I loved one of the colors, and I was shocked at how long it lasted. I put on a dark shade of purple on Sunday night, and with the exception of one huge chip I was able to paint over on Wednesday, this lasted about a week before showing any real wear and tear. And even then, when I gave it a quick re-paint, you could barely see the chips and I got another 3-4 days out of it. Without a doubt, the best nail polish I’ve ever used.

It’s about the same price as OPI or essie – my local drug store carries it for $7.49, but you can also find some BOGO deals if you watch for them. Either way, a manicure that lasts a week, worth the money!

    I just tried this nail polish last night! I'm wearing "Right Said Red" and absolutely love it. Great find!


    I also love Revlon’s Colorstay nail polish. I works just as well. I’m currently testing out other nail polish using the Colorstay system’s base and top coats (the secret weapons). That would be really swell if it works with everything!
