Red nail polish is my ultimate classic beauty item. I started wearing it when I was 16 because I wanted to seem more mature and more sophisticated and that love for red nail polish has never gone away. I have quite the collection and am always adding to it. These are my top 5:

Marc Jacobs hi-shine nail lacquer in Jezebel

Marc Jacobs Hi-Shine lacquer in 138  Jezebel – Such a gorgeous shade. They don’t like when they say this is “hi-shine”. After two coats you are left with the most gorgeous oxblood-red nails and the shine. Oh, the shine. With a top coat, this lasts me around 4-5 days with minor tip touch-ups. My only complaint with this is the brush. It’s thin and can cause quite a bit of streaking.

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in 130 Velvet Rope

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in 130 Velvet Rope – This is actually a pretty good dupe for Jezebel. It’s also a rich, oxblood shade and lasts quite well. I think Revlon nail polishes in general are quite good and this is a really great shade.

Essie in A List

Essie in A List – Such a classic Essie colour and for good reason. This beautiful deep red is just beautiful. My only complaint with Essie polishes is that it just doesn’t seem to last long on my nails. I’m talking about 2 days max without any chipping or tip wear. But still, their colours are so gorgeous, I don’t mind re-painting my nails a few times a week.

Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate Moss in 703 Rock 'n Roll

Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate Moss in 703 Rock ‘n Roll – This has got to be my most worn red nail polish so far this year. I am absolutely obsessed with it. The colour is great (proper classic red) and the brush is awesome. Two swipes per nail and I’m done. It also lasts quite long (around 4-5 days with a good top coat).

Essence Colour & Go in 114 Fame Fatal

Essence Colour & Go in 114 Fame Fatal – Look, when a nail polish costs less than a meal at McDonald’s I don’t trust it. But a while ago I decided to give the Essence nail polishes a go and I was blown away. They are incredible. The formula is rich and opaque, they dry in an instant, the colour is glossy and vibrant and the brush is my favourite brush of any nail polish I’ve ever used. Who woulda thunk it?! This red is a proper postbox red and one I am sure I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of going into Spring/Summer.

Do you have a favourite nail polish? Are there any you think I should be trying?
