Here's the thing: Even though beauty is literally my job, I really effing suck at painting my own nails. But since getting to the salon is (A) time-consuming and (B) pricey, I end up having to DIY my manicures on the reg. That's why I've made it my personal mission to find the best nail polish brands of all time—the ones that deliver vibrant pigments, stay TF put, and, most importantly, are beyond easy to apply. Ahead, I rounded up 10 of my all-time favorites, including the best drugstore polish brand and even a super-worth-it splurge. Check them out, swipe them on, and get ready to, well, probably never try a new polish brand ever again. Sry.
BEST CLEAN NAIL POLISH BRAND: ELLA+MILA
Ella+Mila Love Collection Nail Polish in Ibiza Breeze
Other than the fact that nail polish brand Ella+Mila is ridiculously cute (those little elephants!), their formulas are also as clean as they come. Each polish is "seven free," meaning you won't find a single trace of harsh ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene, camphor, etc. Oh, and did I mention they're all vegan and cruelty-free? Mhmmmm.
