LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.!!!! You wouldn't necessarily think E.L.F would have good quality nail polish due to its AMAZING price but wow does it shine/last. I applied this on Thanksgiving and it only started chipping around the 10th of this month which is great. Today marks almost a month and i only have maybe 4-5 small (barely noticeable) chips near the tip corners. I have a newborn baby so I'm constantly using my hands with washing bottles and changing diapers and this polish keeps its color on well. The color is fantastic as well! Like a shimmer pink/white if that makes sense.

For $1, these are great. They have a lot of fun colors and they apply nicely. They don't last very long, but they do look nice while they are on. I found that the bottles dried out quickly, so they didn't have that long of a shelf life, but they were a great way to try out some new colors!

This is a gorgeous color, and the brush is surprisingly good at even distribution of color. I don’t like the formulation however. It dries quickly but it’s also super thin and gets streaky regardless of how many coats I apply. I’d pass on this one unless you’re gifting it for a young kid who wants to play with colors.

I got these after Christmas and I got them for my girls. We painted one layer and it was super thin. So 2 layers would be best. I can’t speak on how durable they are because kids are rough and it’s hand washing season BUT I do like the colors and it stayed on toes well (mine and girls)
I love the variety it had on my packet. I just was so happy on the way that the color came out to be. It was just a great shine and it stays there for a long time

I wasn't really sure what to expect with ELF's nail polish but I was pleasantly surprised! The polish has a thicker consistency but it applies easily on the nails with no streaking, & you reach full opacity after two coats. I will be buying more!
My nails chip very easily when I'm wearing polish. I've purchased higher end brands and lower end, and no matter what, even with a base and top coat, my polish chips. I also suffer from a couple auto immune diseases, that leave my nails very weak, so having gel, acrylic, powdered polishes from the salon isn't the greatest for me. So, I stumbled upon some ELF polish on a discount at the end of the holiday. And I love these polishes. They're extremely affordable, on or off sale, and the quality is actually really nice! I'm obsessed with this particular shade, "Blush", which is metallic and resembles like a rose gold. It's gorgeous. My nails still chip while wearing this, but I can go for about a day and a half prior to chipping, which is good for me.
If you're looking for a great nail polish that goes on easily, dries quickly, and lasts a long time... Get something else. The colors are great, and they transfer from bottle to nail really well. But they are difficult to apply - at least three coats - and then they take forever to dry. Once dried, they are still sticky and they chip, scuff, and scratch easily. I won't be buying again. I'll probably use these for brief wear.
