Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

Anyone see this Consumer Reports study that tested 10 different polishes including a $2 one from Walgreens called Sinful Colors and the $27 one from Chanel?  Of course there were eight in between.  Any guesses on the results.  The $2 one came out on top while the Chanel finished in last place.  As a nail polish enthusiast, I wanted to pass along the news.  I am going to pick one up and give it a try.  That is so cheap that it is not breaking a no buy, right?  

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

oooooo... Those are pretty. I am more of a regular boring colors kind of girl, not a fan of metallics. I like colors that I can wear throughout the whole year. But I am eyeing the red and purple!

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

These polishes look awesome.  Thanks for the tip.  I am putting them on my future buy list.  

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

OOO I hope you see this like right now @notcreative, but Sally's Beauty supply store is having a buy one get one free sale on FingerPaints Gelish and Orly Polish!

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

Thanks.  I am going to pass.  I like Orly and am looking forward to trying regular Finger Paints (not into gel polish).  The UV to apply and the removal process stinks.  I am also trying to honor this no buy, although a buy one get one free would probably not be a violation.  Maybe, I will do that for the Orly.

Smiley Surprised  ooooooohhhhh! those are gorgeous!! and I don't generally like the orange or green shades...

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

I'm glad they work for you. I've not been that pleased with the few colors I tried from Finger Paints. They took too many layers to get good coverage and most chipped in a few days, even with a good base and top coat. So I kinda have up on the brand. 

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

You should go to page 2 of your Beauty Ranks thread and answer my question.  I am really immature (and also impatient), and I want to know the answer.  Congrats by the way.  I never noticed until the thread popped back up.

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

Thanks! For the past few days, I've been only lurking here and there.. I did not even see that old thread up again.

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

I tried a Sinful Colors somewhat recently and had no problems with it. I did have to use 4 coats to get decent coverage, but it goes on in thin layers, so it didn't get gloppy or take too long to dry.

 

For the past few months I've been doing the Julep subscription thing (I got lured in by the pretty colors), so I'm good on polish. If it weren't for that steady supply stream, I'd probably have bought more SC after that one I used.

 

I agree with the sentiment that Chanel is in general undewhelming. I just expected more magic for the price tag. 

 

 

Re: Nail Polish and Consumer Reports

I have 29 bottles of Julep so far.  Getting more nail polish is always awesome though.  I am thinking of using the 30% coupon from the most recent box to buy my birthstone polish before it sells out.  The problem is that would probably be considered breaking my no buy.  I should probably stop doing add ons to my boxes as well, because that surely has to be a no buy violation.
