If you follow me on YouTube, you are well aware that I have been having a major nail polish addiction lately. Heck, I even started my own nail art website. I haven’t done much with it, but in case you want to check it out, it is called Nail Art for Beginners.
Alas, let me get to the point of this post. I picked up a bunch of nail polish from Forever 21 and wanted to share my review with you all!
Forever 21 Nail Polish Review
I’m going to start by saying I was not expecting much from these nail polishes. I couldn’t help but be drawn to them though. They have cute packaging and great colours.
After swatching them on my nail wheels, I was blown away!
The colours from left to right are as follows:
▪ Blossom (sand laquer)
▪ Nautical Blue (sand laquer)
▪ Jelly Bean
The nail polish had such a smooth application. The formula was creamy, but not sticky. All colours are 2 coats.
I was also pleasantly surprised how quickly it dried.
I’m also hugely impressed on how well the polish is lasting. The manicure in the above photo is 2 days old. I actually even had a bath, and there was no chipping at all, which is rare for me.
The formula rivals any OPI or more expensive polish. In fact, I might go as far to say that it is even better than OPI, Essie, or China Glaze! The only small thing is the names of the Forever 21 nail polish aren’t as exciting. Not exactly a big deal though.
Also, I’m not sure though how I feel about the sand laquer. It definitely gives the polish some texture. I would use it for an accent nail. I wouldn’t apply it though to all of my nails (unlike some of the OPI textured polishes).
Overall, if you are on a budget, this nail polish is definitely something you will want to pick up. The colours are vibrant and the formula is smooth. You also can’t beat the price of $3.80CDN.
