The Look For Less: Burgundy Nail Polish

This season, burgundy nails are all over the place--and I absolutely love it.  You might recall me going on and on about how much I practically worship Essie's Wicked polish in the past.  It's the perfect color for Fall and Winter...I actually wear it year-round.  For some reason, it acts as a neutral shade and goes with everything.  I've gone through several bottles (yes, I realize that I have a problem), and each bottle costs $8.  That's not a crazy amount of money, but I've been on the lookout for something cheaper for a while, just as a backup.

And I found it!  Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Fast Nail Color in Cinna-Snap looks almost exactly the same as Wicked.  And it's under $5.

I know that's not a huge savings, but hey--every dollar counts! I also like the fact that Cinna-Snap dries almost instantly, and one coat usually gets the job done.  With Wicked, I've often had to apply up to three coats for my nails to look opaque. I had to set aside about 45 minutes to paint my nails with it.  Cinna-Snap takes ten minutes, max.

Both polishes are great and I'll continue to use both of them (I mean, I'll always love Essie), but it's nice to have a cheaper, quicker option if I need it.
