List Rules The highest quality nail polish brands.

What are the best nail polish brands? Some of the best polish brands are cheap but high quality. For nail polish fans, you don't have to spend a fortune to have gorgeous nails. This list of excellent nail polish brands includes the inexpensive drug store brands and some of the higher end brands sold in specialty makeup stores.

What makes for a great nail polish brand? One that offers a wide variety of beautiful colors, in flattering shades, for one thing. Nail polish is a great accessory, and some enthusiasts change their polish colors almost daily. Great color variety is key. Another factor that sets a nail polish brand apart: quality. The best nail polish brands offer great product with excellent consistency. A great polish brush paired with a high quality nail lacquer makes for a perfect manicure.
