Catrice Country of Origin: Germany

If you’ve heard about Essence, you’ll most definitely want to meet its big, sexy sister Catrice, a.k.a a European nail polish brand I can’t not recommend! These polishes are not only very reasonably priced to begin with, they have crazy sales pretty much all the time too and, if this doesn’t convince you to give them a try, the sheer number of dupes and special effect top coats might!


Catrice is a German nail polish brand that is known for its wide range of colors and special effect top coats. It is also known for its affordable prices and frequent sales. Catrice polishes are highly pigmented and long-lasting, and they come in a variety of finishes such as creams, glitters, shimmers, and metallics. The brand is also known for its many dupes of popular nail polish colors from other brands. Catrice polishes are cruelty-free and vegan, making them a great choice for those looking for high-quality, budget-friendly nail polishes.



Essence Country of Origin: Germany

Essence products are getting better and better each year and while I still have no love for their basic line, there’s always a limited edition polish or special effect top coat I end up falling in love with. If Catrice is the sexy sister, Essence would be a punky, quirky one. And guess what? You want to meet her!



Korres Country of Origin: Greece

Korres polishes range from three to five euros a pop which isn’t exactly dirt cheap but still is pretty minimal considering their quality and the amount of effort this brand puts into creating safer, less chemical-laden products. Forget about three-free, Korres gives the term “harmful chemical free polish” a brand new meaning! How on earth do they manage to forgo chemicals and still come up with so opaque long-wear polishes, I’ll never know! The good news is that they do!



Kiko Country of Origin: Italy

This affordable Italian brand is a well-loved topic amongst my favorite beauty bloggers and the only one I still haven’t gotten a chance to try out. Let’s take their advice, though, and conclude that if you ever happen to be visiting Italy, you most definitely don’t want miss your chance to shop in a Kiko store.


Kiko is an Italian makeup brand that has been making waves in the beauty blogging community for its affordable prices and great quality. Founded in 1997, Kiko is now one of the largest, most successful makeup brands in the world.

Golden Rose

Golden Rose Country of Origin: Turkey

Golden Rose polishes used to be super cheap, super crappy and the toxic fumes alone could keep you seeing double for days. Next thing I know, bloggers are raving about it and I’m thinking “Whoa, this brand has come a long way”. Be sure to check it out – they are still very cheap, just way more fabulous and three-free now. Not every polish is a star, of course, but the ones that are really make the whole experience worth while.



FlorMar Country of Origin: Italy/Turkey

I’ve had such a great experience with FlorMar products and nail polishes are no exception! Mattes are an absolute must for me and, if you happen to like them too, you’d do well to give FlorMar a go. Experimenting with nails doesn’t have to cost a pretty penny!



Eveline Country of Origin: Poland

Last but not least, a name you might want to write down just in case you happen to run into a Eveline counter somewhere. This brand’s nail treatment is my favorite budget-friendly find and nail polishes…oh, don’t even get me started on those! Check them out! Obscure brand hunting pays out big time!

Are there any other lesser known European nail polish brands to add to the mix? Something Spanish, British or French maybe? Hit me up! If it’s budget-friendly and you can get it online, I most definitely want to know about it!
