MABB Weekly Beauty Question ♥


Each Wednesday, the Metro Atlanta Beauty Bloggers will answer a beauty-related question just for fun! This week's question


What are your favorite big name nail polish brands? (OPI, China Glaze, Zoya, etc)

Wow, I have quite a few favorite nail polish brands. Where to start? In terms of mainstream (non 'Indie' or 'small company' brands) nail polish companies I have mostly Essie, OPI, China Glaze and butter London in my collection. I'm almost never let down by their formulas. However, I will say that I notice Essie does have a few flops but they make up for it with their occasional one coaters. I think Essie has been absolutely killin' it when it comes to their colors of their recent collections (in the past year, current, & upcoming), in fact I just had to get the recent Fall 2012 Sylenomics collection (which I got for $31 shipped via eBay!). OPI rarely disappoints me with their colors and formulas. Considering the quality and price point it's easy to understand why they're the favorite of many nail enthusiasts'! China Glaze has the occasional collection that really excites me (ex. The Hunger Games & recent Safari collections) and their formulas rarely disappoint. My other brand I have nearly every color of is butter London; I love their unique colors and how they present their brand. I always end up purchasing their collections (that are small and therefore manageable to purchase all of them! ha) even though they're in the mid price range being at $14 a bottle.

A few other favorite brands that don't take up most of my collection are Dior, MAC, Revlon, and Orly. Yes, these range from $23 a bottle to $3.99 a bottle but offer a great variety of colors as well as 'Limited Edition' shades.

What are some of your favorite brands? Could you ever choose just one? ...I couldn't, it could just never happen. :oD

♥ Cheers,

definitely hard to choose just one! I like OPI and Julep:)

I am really loving butter LONDON lately too! So many pretty and unique colors!

Definitely forgot about Orly! I love them!

I'm not a fan of Julep's business model, but that's just my personal opinion. Butter London polish chips SO bad on me! I wish I could love them, but no matter what I do it won't even last 24 hours. I think their polish names are awesome, though!
