It’s always fun for me to look at other people’s Top-Rated or Best-of lists whether they are beauty related or not. Maybe it’s one of my odd quirks, but I enjoy comparing what I think should have made the list, and what items make me go “hmmm”. Total Beauty recently indulged my quirkiness by releasing their “Top-Rated Nail Polish” list…
I really have to disagree with some of their mentions. I like most all nail polish brands well-enough, especially if they have a unique color. However, Revlon coming in at seven was just bizarre to me. I always want to love their polish but every bottle I buy is too thick, and takes forever to dry… and yes, even if I apply a fast-dry topcoat it still takes forever and a day. I have tried thinning it too, but I really think nail polish formulas should come out ready-to-apply. I shouldn’t have to fiddle with a formula to make it work.
I agree with Essie at number 4, but Rimmel at number 3? Above Essie, really? Huh. And they left out a TON of my favorites- mainly Sally Hansen Salon, Color Club, and Rescue Beauty Lounge. I know RBL is pricey, but it’s really not much more than Lippmann (which Total Beauty does list).
So Bionic Beauties, which nail polish brands do you think got missed on this list? And which do you think Total Beauty totally flaked on by placing in their Top 10?
