Collective Nail polish Review!

I used to have alot more than this before I discovered Nails Inc... I chucked most of them away as they didn't live up to my standards! :) I thought I would share my thoughts on my current collection..

The AMAZING: Nails inc - Beautiful glossy flawless finish, highly pigmented - what you see is what you get! A wide range of colours available, £10.50each, however I never paid that for any of mine. They are either from a set from qvc, freebies, multipacks or sale items. Currently InStyle magazine is giving away 3 shades - haven't got my hands on mine yet! BARRY M - Outstanding quality for it's £2.98 price tag.. just gorgeous! Highly pigmented with a wide range of colours.

The OK: Revlon, Max Factor, Bourjois & Dior - Nothing special.. just average.

The BAD: ELF - Not very pigmented and goes on very streaky! Chanel - Not at all worth the price tag, quite gloopy, streaky and not that pigmented.

What are your thoughts, do you agree or disagree? Discuss... :)

you need to try illamasqua polishes, they are brilliant x

I agree with you about Chanel - very disappointing.

I don't have many nail polishes as you but mine mainly consists of Barry M's nail paints.. Can't get enough of them and I hope to have their whole collection one day haha :p x

I figured that ELF would just be the bad one since I'm assuming Chanel is expensive xD

I 've never tried nails inc (I don't think we have it here and asos only ships them to uk only), but I think 'll disagree about Chanel...I 'm pretty satisfied with them, even if I haven't tried a wide variety...maybe it's their lighter shades that are dissappointing...?

I wanna get my hands on some Barry M nail paints

Diarella said...

I disagree about Dior nailpolishes. Some of them are good, but I also tried which are not so good:( unfortunately! And I absolutely love Chanel Lilac sky!! :)))I recommend it!)))

I also love Nails Inc polishes-I must have over 30! I also have various other polishes from different brands such as Barry M, but they are by far my fave brand.

I got the Coral nail polish with InStyle. It's a really nice colour, prefer it to the Barry M coral. And it's great value with a magazine too! :)

U have some pretty colors in your collection! I haven't tried the ELF polishes yet, so that's good to know! I have so many polishes now I think I need to get a nail rack! :0

I have lots of Nails Inc too and that was my fave. Until i found the new Rimmel Lycra polish (with the huge fat brush) and now i think Nails Inc isnt very good. The colours are nice but the staying power is awful it chips all the time and comes off in water (showers, pools..)

I reviewed the Rimmel one on my blog :)

Hmmm, I'm wondering if this is sold here in the states. I bought the Givenchy Phenomen Eye's and I do LOVE it!

However, I feel $28.00 US is rather high for a mascara.

Thanks for the post!
