Is there a good budget buy gel polish?

I got the Nails Inc. gel polish in the M&S beauty box and absolutely love it. But it's pricey enough in the shops so am wondering if there are cheaper alternatives that are as good?

I haven't tried it myself but I've heard that the Avon Gel polish is meant to be good

Barry M gellies are good

Avon £3.5 - excellent

I can't get Avon where I am, but I can get Barry M so must give that a try. Thanks.

I loved my top end nail polishes but bought Barry M recently just to give it a go and seriously am v impressed. Made me feel like I've been chucking my money away!
I also got the M&S box and agree the Nails inc one is fab

Barry M Gelly - £3.99

They have a range of colours for each season too!! Also places like Boots and Superdrug tend have decent offers on their nail paints smile

Barry M is the best i've tried so far.

The Seventeen brand gel polishes from Boots are really good!

Really really surprised to hear that you guys liked the Nails Inc one in the M&S box. I thought it was crappy crapola. The colour was nice but it chips after about half an hour on me. Total pile of shit!

Rimmel is great for me (very short nails though)

Gel as in Gelly or as in curing under a lamp gel? If the latter I use Elite99

Definitely going to give the Barry M one a go, although loving the mushroomy shade in the Nails Inc. I might also need to just treat myself...
