The Best Nail Polish (by Far) is Only $2
A new study found the cheapest polish is the pick of the litter
Chanel, said testers, actually began chipping the day it was applied, and seven of the ten panelist rated it problematic. Nutra Nail gel polish was also rated poorly, with testers complaining that it began chipping the day they put it on. Sally Hansen and CoverGirl's polishes, reported testers, still looked good on day 7 and remained fair by day 10.
While Sinful Colors came out on top, Revlon Colorstay, which costs $6.20 a bottle, and CND's Vinylux Weekly Polish, $9.90 a bottle, also scored well. The takeaway? Just because it's expensive doesn't mean it actually does the job better. We'll take the $2 polish, please. [Consumer Reports]
