3 nail polishes for the girl on the go...

We have all been there; you have an event coming up in the evening and your nail polish is chipped like you've been wearing it for a week when it's just been three days - what do you do? I hate those situations! You need a polish that looks worthy of coming out of salon,  that is quick in the application and also the drying time. Well, I have you sorted. I don't have one polish to share with you guys, but three! Take from this the colours that I usually go for in these situations and more importantly the formulations of the polishes themselves, because when the clock is ticking, you can't be playing around...

The Sephora Formula X polishes are awesome when you are in a hurry, gliding on smoothly which makes applying another layer of polish is ridiculously easy. You know when you are in a hurry and when applying another layer of polish you end up dragging the last layer a bit because you didn't have enough product on the brush? Just me? Well anyway, applying this product is just a piece of cake and very very fool proof! This is in the shade 'Brain Power' which is a lovely nude colour that will save you for any occasion! I would recommend this to anyone who has difficultly applying polish!

I never really got the hype around OPI, they aren't exactly the cheapest product. But when I got my hands on this product, I could see why people gravitate towards it. The formula is very thin, but in a good way because it dries in no time at all - I would say this is the best, out of these picks, for drying time. However, I don't think you could just work on one coat for this, it's not that pigmented. But even then two layers of polish would still be done in less than 5 minutes. So if you are really late to something, then I would suggest grabbing a bottle of OPI to get you through the day! The shade I have is a rouge pink colour - something that adds colour and femininity without going overboard!

This colour is for the special occasion evening. It's a deep red toned mahogany that just oozes class and confidence. It's the cheapest out of all three polishes, and is just an awesome polish for both nails and toenails. What I love about this polish is that it creates a gel effect on the nail, so it's thicker than the last two polishes but has the best finish because you are left with this glossy, pigmented shade in one coat. Despite being thick, this dries down quickly too and so you can rely on it - I love taking this one on holiday! I don't think you can go wrong with a dark colour for an occasion! 

These nail colours will work well for lots of skin colours and they also suit most occasions too! So it's a win-win situation, whether it's a meeting with your boss, shopping with the girls or having a night out, your nails can be in tip top condition!
I love Essie and BarryM as brands but I was really focusing more on the quick drying aspect and the polishes I gravitate towards when I'm in a rush! Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed reading my picks for the girl on the go, I would love to know what your top picks would be!

  1. i love that shade "brain power" such a nice color! I have like a few nudes but there all cool tones, warm tone nudes are really pretty too! Formula X seems like an awesome brand, but i just hate spending my money on nail polish hahah

    1. I've had brain power for so long! I bought it in Milan in summer 2014! I do really like this one, I think it's perfect for every occasion. To be honest, I'm a bit iffy about spending a large amount of money on a nail polish! My collection mainly consists of BarryM, Essie and random other brands, however spending a bit of money will mean that the polish lasts slightly longer and the application is smoother. My tip would be to just invest in a few shades which you regularly wear!
