As I attempted to stop biting my nails I found the need to paint them in order to keep my urges away.  I tried to find a nice neutral color but even when I found the right color it was hard to get nice looking nails. After several bad attempts I found I needed nail polish that was smug free and long lasting.

Even though I was looking into all the top ten best nail polish reviews 2013 was shaping up to be frustrating. I just could not find what I was looking for. Every brand promised different things and while some did deliver what they promised others did not even come close. I have put together my own list of the best nail polish I have found over the year. Hopefully it will help you on your search for the perfect nail polish.

Maybelline New York Express Finish 60 Second Nail Color

As the name implies this product dries very quickly. Smudge-free nails are the way to be! The color selection Maybelline provides is outstanding. You can find just about any color you want in whatever store you are in for a reasonable price. 

Wet n Wild Rock Solid Nail Lacquer

This polish dries super fast. Honestly, within seconds you are ready to enjoy your freshly painted nails. Another great feature is that the bottle color will be the color of the dried polish. No more odd, unwanted, colors.

CoverGirl CG Boundless Color Nail Polish, $4

Revlon’s colors are deep and rich tones but Covergirl’s colors are more on the bright and playful side of things. There is a nice shine to the polish. It is rather long lasting, however, does take a while to dry smug free.

Avon Nailwear Nail Enamel

No chips, or removal for up to 10 days is enough to make Avon Nailwear a great product at a fantastic price. This polish is as good if not better than any professional polish.

Essie Nail Polish

Once applied and dried this polish can last for days without need for touch up. It holds up to just about anything you can toss its way. Very shinny finish without a top coat, and the long wear makes this polish hard to beat.

Revlon Nail Enamel

 Sheer and vibrant colors proves Revlon is well on its way to becoming the best producers of polish products. Like all Revlon products there has never had animal testing, yet the product is safe and top of the line.

OPI Nail Lacquer Classics

With OPI and OPI plus glitter you are going to get a quality product. Color is vibrant, goes on smoothly and last until you take it off. You can achieve a professionally done look right at home for a fifth of the cost.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners

Somehow China Glaze has made odd colors like Robin’s egg blue into shades that look good on all ages without seeming silly or standing out too much. Long lasting, bright, and unique shades will assume you can find your favorite polish with China Glaze.

Lippmann Collection Nail Lacquer

The bottle and brush of Lippman’s Nail Lacquers allows thin, non-goopy, application. Although the polish is on the expensive end you do get what you pay for with no formaldehyde and anti-fungal formula. This polish is safe for environment, multiple person painting, and pregnant women. 

Rimmel London 60 Seconds Vinyl Stars

 For such an inexpensive polish it dries quick and last long. With just about any color you can imagine available you can go crazy and change it up as often as you like. This is quick dry but you do need a top coat if you want it to truly last a long time.
