Forever 21

Forever 21 Forever 21 nail polishes are easily one of my new favorite bargain nail polish brands. They have every color in every shade you could ever possibly imagine, and they look amazing. For $2 a bottle, and sometimes even less when there are sales, it’s almost impossible not to get sucked in to this gorgeous line.



Revlon If I remember correctly, Revlon was one of the first nail polishes I ever used, and still a go-to to this day. It’s one of the best and most cost-friendly drugstore nail polishes, and with the variety of colors they offer, it’s worth looking into the next time you get sucked into the beauty aisles of your supermarket. We’ve all been there.



L’Oreal Yes, L’Oreal nail polish has been around forever, yet they keep their colors so updated and fresh that they always seem brand new! They keep up with the latest trends, so whether you’re looking for a nice mint or an edgy metallic, they have something that will work for you!



Maybelline I’m the biggest advocate for all Maybelline makeup products, and their nail polish is no exception. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a Maybelline makeup product that I didn’t absolutely love. Their nail polish is a perfect example of that. It’s especially great for the younger set, as they seem to specialize in colors that teens love, but they have such a huge variety that it’s a worth a glance no matter your age!


Pure Ice

Pure Ice Every Christmas, without fail, a few bottles of nail polish seem to make their way into my stocking. This year, "Santa’s” brand of choice was Pure Ice, and I must say, I was pretty happy with the results. I’ve only tried the metallic, but from simply those, I can vouch for the fact that this is a brand checking out. They look just like high-end metallic nail polishes, for a fraction of the price.


Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen Sally Hansen is unique in that not only do they offer nail polish, but also nail strips. Yes, nail strips are all the rage and sold by basically every company now, but Sally Hansen is the original, and at least in my opinion, arguably the brand with the most variety. If you haven’t checked out the nail strips yet, you must. They’re a cost-effective way to achieve nail art without a hefty price tag.



Rimmel Rimmel can do no wrong. That’s just a philosophy I have in my life, and one that I think applies quite well in this case. Not only does Rimmel offer an amazing 60-second-dry collection, but they’re also only $1.79. There’s no going wrong here!

What’s your favorite bargain nail polish brand? Personally, I really love the Forever 21 nail polishes at the moment, but I’m always trying out new brands and finding new favorites. With $1 price tags, they can be hard to pass up on! Let me know your favorite in the comments!

I love wet n Wild nail polish and its 🐇💅🏾cruelty free

L'oreal even. the soft pink?

Wet and wild megalast nail polishes are amazing!! I have a range of nail polishes from OPI to Chanel and Dior, and Wet and Wild's brush is closely comparable with Dior for a tenth of the price! It also has amazing formula and longevity if used with a top coat.

I swear by pure ice! It never chips and I've used allllll types of polishes. I'm the girl that does her own nails for therapy :) nyc is good also, the 1.75 bottles. Not the 99cent
