I really don’t know how I managed to keep this list to ten, because I feel like I fall in love with a new polish every week. There were SO many more amazing polishes that aren’t on this list, though. I tried to go across brands and put together a list of ones that really struck me or were more original.
I’m definitely a fan of the Cult Nails brand, particularly because Maria keeps coming out with shades where I get to say, “I couldn’t think of a dupe for this!” as part of my review. It’s tough to be original in such an over-saturated industry, so it is very much appreciated. The formula is long-wearing–a full seven days or longer–with very minor tip wear and no chipping. Princess was fully opaque after two coats of polish, and it had good flow and wasn’t too thick or too thin.
Princess has a very Cinderella-esque feel to it. It reminded me of her dress and the way it sparkled. It's soft but has some interest because of the copper shimmer. The formula is excellent, easy to use, and is opaque in two coats.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
