Hey everyone, what is your favourite brand of nail polish and what are some important qualities you look for in a good polish?

 

I have tried many  brands of nail polish from Chanel to Essie, OPI, Zoya, China Glaze, Wet n Wild, Essence,Color Craze and Revlon to name a few. I find that not all of the more expensive brands are as good as they should be and some of the cheaper brands may be good or bad.

 

I look for nail polish that goes on smooth that has a great brush and leaves no streaks. Also these days I have no time and patience for slow drying polishes and tend to buy the fast drying ones. I also like a good gloss finish and a polish that doesnt stay sticky for a long time and become prone to creases. And of course I like my polish to last at least five day without chipping off and looking terrible, and a polish that has a longer shelf life and wont become unusable after only a few uses.

 

My favourite right now are OPI because I love their colors even though they are not that fast drying in my opinion, Essence because the polishes I have from this line last up to 6 days before chipping off with a top coat, and the Wet n Wild fast dry because they dry very fast, although the colour selection here in Canada is rather sparse. China Glaze also has some really nice colors. I also like Color Craze which I got at Winners/Marshalls because the colors are very bright and good for summerSmile

I generally lean towards OPI, but have a few Essie. I've picked up a few really cheap bottles at the drugstore and although not impressed, they did the job. I found the cheap ones to have really stiff brushes that weren't as wide as OPI, and the color went on blotchy.
