I bought rimmel pro yesteray, lovely colour, not chipped yet and dried fast. Better than the cheaper rimmel ones.

I love Barry M, cheap enough and a great variety of colours and if you use a clear base/top coat it lasts for ages.

I love opi and seche vote top coat

hmmm i used to quite like Barry M stuff when i was young (blah that means i am old now)

but you're all saying different things! how will i choose?

Rimmel ones are great! 60 second I think they are called. I also use seche vite top coat which is amazing.

I love OPI but with a decent top coat cheaper brands last just as well IMO!

see OPI now looks like a bargain to me after perusing the £17.50 Chanel range.

rimmel though, you say... i will check those out in boots

TragicallyHip Sat 27-Aug-11 23:55:19

Essie colours usually stay put. Plus Nails Inc does a great topcoat which gives shine and is tough dry in seconds. Can't remember the name but it's a blue liquid and you can get it in Boots!

TragicallyHip Sun 28-Aug-11 00:02:36

Oh sorry read that as purchased..

Yes of course he will, he did with me wink

I have just painted my nails this colour

TragicallyHip Sun 28-Aug-11 00:03:50
