The Look For Less: Red Nail Polish
No matter the season, red nail polish always looks fabulous. It's classic and looks amazing on all skintones. It's just a fact. As a self-proclaimed polish addict, I almost always have an emergency bottle of red polish with me at all times. My personal collection includes around 10 different red colors, each one slightly unique in its own lovely way.
That said, it can be hard to find a red polish that is of fantastic quality. My first fave red hue is Dior's Vernis Nail Lacquer in Red Royalty. It really is the perfect red. It's a bright cherry red with cool undertones. When I found it, I knew immediately that it would be my go-to red for a very long time.
Then I tried out CoverGirl's Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Ever Reddy. It is basically the exact same color, applies like a dream, and looks every bit as gorgeous as its Dior twin.
While Dior's red polish is a steep $24, the CoverGirl version is a mere $5.99.
I hate to say it, being such a Dior fan and all, but save yourself some cash and opt for the drugstore nail polish. Since it works just as well, and looks just as good as the pricier polish, there's no reason to shell out the big bucks for a beautiful red nail polish that'll get you through multiple seasons.
