Recommended Posts

Hey all,

For those who do use nail polish, what is/are your preferred brands? If not a TOS violation - are there any specific brands which you avoid?

i prefer OPI.  I don't get chipping or rub-off between pedis.  But OPI don't have as many sparkles, so I use China Glaze for sparkles.

For my fingers I use OPI gelish polishes.

No real brand preferences. They're all good or they wouldn't stay in business. I've had good success with Sally Hansen, Revlon, OPI, Jessica, and others. The key is good surface preparation with no oil or water left on it, a good clear base coat, and a good clear top coat. With non-gel nail polish I usually get 5-7 days on my fingernails before it starts chipping and looking too ratty to wear. YMMV depending on what you do with your hands. On toenails, I usually get a month.

All,

This thread must have been overlooked. OPI, Sinful Colors, and Revlon are reliable brands. One in particular I have liked is KleanColor which is not available via retail but through the nail care industry. A lady in CHicago who does nails gave me bottle and my wife later saw some KleanColor bottles at a flea market in Fontana, CA a  couple of years ago. When I asked the vendor where they came from she said it was her shop's excess supply. SO there you have my 25 cents worth.  HappyinHeels

My wife painted my toe nails years ago with OPI purple and I am hooked on  this brand since.    It does take a base coat and 2 color coats and a top coat for the nails to to look great. Also noticed OPI goes on better when temperature is about 74 degrees.

OPI and I loving the ILNP that I learn about here. Last pedi I had the holographic ILNP painted over OPI black. Oh what a color combination. What a pop.

ILNP, OPI, and Sally Hansen are my favorite. Kleen color has great color, but will stain like nobody's business. Yes I use a base coat but it still will stain.
