5 Things To Know About Sinful Colors, The Polish That Proved It's Better Than Chanel

Today, Consumer Reports revealed some game changing nail polish news. In a test of seven popular nail polish brands, CR hired a professional manicurist to apply the polishes with their complimentary base and top coats to 10 volunteers, who wore two different polishes at the same time on alternating fingers. At seven, ten, and fourteen days, the volunteers’ nails were checked and the polishes were given a score based on wear and appearance. Ten different volunteers applied the polishes themselves at home and were also checked and recorded on the same days. The results were definitely not what you would expect. Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel ($0.99) came out on top. Can you believe it?! So before you go for your next manicure or paint your nails at home, here are 5 things you need to know about the best nail polish out there.

1. Sinful Colors was the cheapest brand that was tested. It is usually sold for $2 a bottle, but we found it on sale here.

2. It lasted the longest over more expensive brands like Chanel and Nutra Gel, which chipped on the first day. Can you believe that?! At $27 a bottle, Chanel Le Vernis SHOULD NOT chip that quickly.

3. This brand looked the best after seven and ten days. None of the polishes lasted for the full fourteen. CND Vinylux ($9.95) and Revlon Nail Enamel ($5.29), also looked good after a week, but did not last the full ten.

4. Consumer Reports recommends that you use a base coat and a top coat along with the polish to make it last longer.

5. Though it is the lonest lasting, Sinful Colors took the longest to dry. So if you’re in a hurry, CR recommends that you use Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish ($8.29), which had the quickest dry-time in the test.

Bottom line: Sometimes cheaper is better. Since we will definitely be trying Sinful Colors next time we paint our nails, we roundup up some of the brand’s best colors in our slideshow. Check it out!
