We all know that a good manicure is essential. It says a lot about your character and personality. This might sound shallow, but I can assure you that how you look can influence how people perceive you and treat you.
I’m not saying that having chipped nails is the worst thing in the world. But you shouldn’t underestimate the power of a well-manicured hand. Maybe not every day or week, and perhaps some of us prefer neat and naked nails, that’s ok too. But there are times in our everyday life when we want that lovely, impeccable manicure that shows our attention to detail, level of care, and creativity.
If you don’t have time or money for weekly manicures, I’ve got great news for you – nail polish that is as easy to apply at home as it is beautiful and durable! There are many different types of nail polish on the market. They have great colors, fantastic designs and can last for weeks without chipping or fading.
If you love to paint your nails, then you probably want to know what the best nail polishes right now are. Here are the 5 best nail polishes right now!
5 Best Nail Polishes Right Now – based on durability
#5 Zoya Nail Lacquer
Do you wonder what the difference between nail lacquer and nail polish is? Nail Lacquer is typically more durable than traditional nail polish formulas. In addition, it’s usually slightly thicker comparably, which allows it to be more chip resistant.
Zoya is already a famous brand with folks who know their cosmetics and nail salons and is a first-class pick for non-toxic nail polish.
Does nail lacquer need a UV lamp to dry?
No, Zoya is a regular nail polish, and it requires only air drying. However, the gel polish contains a polymer that must be ‘cured’ by a UV or LED lamp to become rigid. So, regular nail polishes can’t be used with UV or LED lights since they need only ar to dry.
Not only is this polish long-lasting, but it’s also free of harmful toxins like toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).
#4 Deborah Lippman
Deborah Lippman nail polish is considered the healthy alternative to gel polish. Gel Lab Pro Color is an award-winning, treatment-enriched nail polish that delivers the gloss and cushion of a gel manicure without nail damage. This dual-patented formula has health, wear and shine with 10 exclusive ingredients to ensure optimum wellbeing and benefits for the nails. In addition, it requires no lamps or tools.
The Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish is a little pricier than the Zoya Nail Polish. You can buy it online for about $20. But it has excellent reviews. Customers say:
- The Deborab Lippmann polish lasted an entire nine days without a single chip.
- “I had to wait an extra 5 minutes for it to dry. It was worth it in the end”.
- “I’ve gone too thick on the polish and it did have a few indents, because I’ve touched it before it dried all the way.”
#3 CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish
This nail polish requires 2 steps and delivers results just as you would have gone to the salon! No base coat is needed. It promisses 7+ days of exceptional wear.
- 1: Apply 2 thin coats of the CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish.
- 2: Finish with one coat of CND Vinylux Long Wear Shine Top Coat. Let it dry for 10 minutes, and your manicure is done!
You get to choose from more than 150 high performing shades and reinvent yourself weekly.
#2 Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish
This nail polish looks like gel but isn’t. Essie Gel Couture is a 2-step system for long-lasting at-home nail polish, with high adherence color and gel-like high shine topcoat. In addition, it’s chip-resistant, fade-resistant.
I’ve tested myself many times, for long periods, and it deserves to be on the podium of The Best 5 best nail polishes right now. Other testers also raved about it. They liked the color and ease of application but also rated it easiest to remove, noting the polish left “no ugly yellow stains.”
#1 Sally Hansen Miracle Gel
The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish is the next best thing to a salon gel manicure that you can do at home. It’s the longer-lasting manicure I’ve ever tried. And it’s number 1 selling gel polish in the US. In addition, the price is super reasonable. It comes in 93 shades, plus a shiny topcoat and a matte one. It doesn’t need a base coat.
I’ve noticed that the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel dried faster, chipped less, and lasted longer than regular nail polish. The brand claims that this nail polish lasts two whole weeks. For me having ten days with a flawless manicure is a win.
I consider that any nail polish you choose from the 5 recommended above is a good choice. And it won’t break your monthly budget!
