Read This Post Before Buying Your Next Nail Polish💅

Why you should switch to non-toxic nail polish: As a nail polish lover, I love trying nail polishes of different brands. However, a lot of them, especially those from drugstores, are particularly toxic with dangerous ingredients. Because of the safety concerns, I started to learn from some professional magazines and got to know that there are some safe nail polishes with the claims of "5-free", "7-free", etc. There are the most common ingredient formulas:
5-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor
7-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene
10-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, parabens, acetone, TPHP, TBHP, gluten
Best brands recommended:
Olive & June
Olive & June is from an LA-based nail salon that just started to join the nail-care industry. Their salon is quite popular, and their nail polishes are 7-free and affordable with good quality. The polishes are super-long wearing, vegan, and cruelty-free.
Orosa's nail lacquer is really a good choice if you are kind of impatient as their nail polish has a quick-dry formula, and is made without 14 controversial ingredients.
RGB is really a cost-effective choice as one bottle of polish can last you for about a year if you get manicures frequently, for example, two times per week! Besides, their polishes are chip-resistant, leaving a protective layer for your natural nails.
This brand's bottle shape and brush are optimized for clean and quick application. Their formula is cruelty-free, 10-free, and vegan. What's more, the shades of their nail polishes are gorgeous with a glossy finish!
Jin Soon
This brand is created by Jin Soon Choi, who is a celebrity manicurist and famous nail artist. Her nail polish collection is not only with beautiful colours but also safe, which are 10 free with UV filter protects. Actually, many of the shades were named by the models including Jamie Bochert, Hyoni Kang, and so on.
Chanel is a luxury brand, and their nail polishes are of really trendy shade. I love how rich their colours are, and their nail polishes really help me to catch up with the fashion by coming out of the seasonal collections quickly! What's your favorite nail polish brand?

Product Mentioned
Chanel longwear nail colour ✨ First off, I really love Coco Chanel everything from , purses, clothing, makeup, accessories ETC. so trying out Chanel’s nail lacquers was a must especially since I do nails aside from hair & fashion design. Chanel nail lacquers were one of my first purchases from Chanel aside from makeup because I really wanted to own things from Chanel but couldn’t really afford it, so i was grateful to be able to buy something was only $28 not the $2800 I couldn’t spend on a bag yet What I like about these nail lacquers is that they are not so thick, also do not bleed to the sides easily how other polishes do & on top of that they do not have a strong unbearable smell. Chanel have a beautiful nail polish color selection my favorite polish has to be 532 CANOTIER It is golden & unique & if you swipe to the next photo you can see it 😊 P.s please excuse my messy painting I’m not aloud to wear nails at the salon I work at so I quickly painted the color on acrylic nails just to show you 🧡
I found the dupe for Chanel finally!!! Saved me so much money!💴
When it comes to the changeover period between autumn and winter, the happiest thing is that clothes, shoes, bags, lipsticks, and all the “equipment” can be replaced with new ones. But such a set usually costs a lot of budgets. If you want a cheap and nice-looking single item to welcome autumn and winter, then you must buy nail polish!! Although there are many top brands (such as Chanel, Dior) producing nail polishes and have been widely praised, don't be disappointed if your budget is short. Dupes always exist and sometimes even give you unexpected results. Take nail polish alone, let me tell you a secret that Essie absolutely can be a dupe for Chanel!!! These two brands must be familiar to everyone, but Essie only costs one-third of Chanel’s price to achieve the same magical effect, based on a funny comparison I did with my friend the other day. Also, their nail polishes are non-toxic: Chanel nail polish is 5-free, and Essie's is 3-free. One of my friends is also crazy about nail art, like me. We ordered Chanel Mirage together, a very hot color on the Internet. And we both thought that Essie Island Hopping is the nearest color to it after repeated comparisons, so we purchased it too. We each painted one color, as you can see the final results in the picture, they are exactly the same!!! The pretty purple is so gentle and perfect for fall. They set your hands off to snow white. I have to say that Chanel has nothing wrong with it except that its expensive price. But Essie is also no less striking. Essie polish is smooth to apply and dries fast, providing flawless coverage. But you need to do a minimum of 2 layers, as it is very transparent and thin at first. As for the durability, it started chipping on day 4 but not terribly. I can't get any other brands to last longer than 2 days without chipping even using a base coat and topcoat. Chanel had a little longer wearing but also broke after several days. I am so happy with this nail polish dupe. The most important thing is that it saves me money!!!

Which is better: Jinsoon or Orosa?
Today I wanted to compare these two polishes. I never used to think of brown as a neutral, and I had never worn brown polish until recently. Now I love it! There’s nothing like a chocolatey nail look to make bright colors in outfits or accessories pop. First up, the JINsoon - Dulcet . All of Jinsoon’s polishes are priced at $18. Jinsoon is formulated without 10 common harmful ingredients: Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde resin, Camphor, Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide, Triphenyl phosphate, Parabens, and Lead. They are vegan and not tested on animals. The polish itself applies smoothly, and j get good coverage with two coats. It has the typical nail polish smell, but it dissipates quickly as the polish dries very fast. This shade, Dulcet, is a light brown that works very well as a neutral. I’ve found that this and other Jinsoon polishes last about 5-7 days before I start to get any chips—that’s pretty impressive since I type all day for work, play with my dog, cook, etc. For these reasons, this polish gets five stars for me. Next up is the orosa - Pure Cover Nail Paint in the shade Dune. All of Orosa’s shades are priced at $12 each, and they are free of 14 potentially harmful substances. They are also vegan and cruelty free. The polish itself has the typical nail polish smell. It dries pretty quickly, but the brush is fatter and wider than the Jinsoon brush, so I ended up applying too much polish on some nails, which caused them to take longer to dry. It took me three coats to get the opaque coverage I wanted. The color is really nice; it’s a deeper chocolate brown than the Jinsoon. Sadly, it started to chip badly within 3 days, despite Orosa’s claim that it should last 7. Once I got one chip, it all started to come off. For the longer wear time and more convenient brush, I prefer the Jinsoon over the Orosa. However, I think both are great brands that are doing a great thing by formulating their products without potentially harmful ingredients, and I also love that they don’t test on animals! #CheriePartner
Amazing NUDE shades for tanned skin that you must try!❤
We love crazy manis but sometimes, the best neutral polishes goes with everything. Skin-complementing shades are utterly elegant, understated, and helps to elongate your fingers. If you are a warm undertone, warm nude shades are going to complement your undertone well. If you are a cool undertone, pick the cooler nudes. Lucky ladies with neutral undertones get away with all the nude shades. There is no single ONE nude color for all of us so I’m trying out two shades of neutral nude here. The first pick is Orosa Pure Cover Nail Paint in shade Pâtisserie. I love how Orosa nail polishes are cruelty-free and vegan, and free of 14 harmful chemicals typically found in nail products. The application is super easy thanks to the flat, wide, and curved brush that glides across the natural shape of my nail. The pink shade does not really suit my tanned skin but it would be an interesting option for pairing it with another complementary shade or for a French manicure. This shade would be perfect for cool skin tones. US$12 for 0.5oz orosa - Pure Cover Nail Paint The second pick is OPI nail lacquer in Pale to the Chief. At first sight, I wouldn’t think that the shade would be suitable for my skin tone but it looks elegant after application. The award-winning nude polish is heavily pigmented and appears beautifully even with just one single coat. Application is a breeze with the larger ProWide handle and brush as well. It dries quickly, perfect for busy girls on the go. A nail lacquer also typically lasts longer than a nail polish but I would let time tell if that is true. US$10.50 for 0.5oz OPI - OPI Nail Lacquer

orosa - Pure Cover Nail Paint I bought two of these nail polishes after they were on Joanna Spicer’s monthly favorites. I loved the unique shades they offer and that they’re a clean brand of nail polish. I bought Succulent and Star and I gotta say, I think the darker the color the better. Star took a few layers to get it to be opaque but succulent I only needed 2. They dry pretty quickly and last for a while with a good top coat! I’d definitely buy more, but only the darker colors.

This week I tried 2 different natural nail polishes. Both ella+mila - Love Collection Nail Polish and OLIVE&JUNE - SE are 7 free. I did need 3 coats of each to get my desired color but they looked great... until Ella+Mila chipped 2 days into my mani. That combined with the easier applicator of Olive&June made me prefer O&J more. The color is great and they have tons of options at Target and on the website. I can’t wait to try another Olive&June color!

So to be honest, I RARELY paint my nails these days and it’s been that way for years. I really struggle with painting my nails and having them chip within hours because then I pick it all off. I don’t even really own nail polish anymore for this reason...so literally these 3 pictured here are the only nail polishes I currently own😳 There are two brands of nail polishes that have come to be my favourites over the years though and that’s Essie and Essence. Essie IMO is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to drugstore nail polishes; they have SO MANY beautiful colours to choose from and I love that they often come out with seasonal or limited edition collections too. Also, the names of their polishes are always so cheeky and adorable! I find that Essie polishes hold up so much better than many others that I’ve tried and don’t chip quite as fast as other brands, especially when paired with one of their top coats. Overall, if I’m heading out to buy a nail polish you can pretty much guarantee it’ll be Essie. The other brand I really love is Essence; their polishes are extremely affordable (think like $3) and wear pretty well. The one I have is a gel formula and it’s a little more plush and shiny than the classic nail polish formula and then I also have a glitter by them because I am ALWAYS a fan of a glitter nail (or 3🤪). Essence doesn’t hold up quite as well as Essie IMO but they are still great polishes and at that price you can’t go wrong! This all being said, Quo (which is Shoppers Drug Mart’s beauty brand here in Canada) just relaunched all of their line + some new launches and their polishes look so cute so I may have to pick up a couple to try!
