Now I want to see if you can pick out the cheap $1 ELF nail polish. I have on three different brands, one is definitely ELF and the other two are popular brands. I actually like the formaldehyde free ELF polish. It is supposed to be a quick dry polish and it does ok in that area, I didn't notice anything super fast but it was decent. The color is nice, maybe a little lighter on your nails with just one coating but add more and you should get your desired shade.
I only applied one coat of each brand just to be fair. Click the pic for a closer look.

Now on to the quiz.....
Ready for the answer........
- Hand #1 Sally Hansen No Chip 10 Day Nail Color in Tenacious Ruby
- Hand #2 $1.00 ELF polish in Medium Red
- Hand #3 OPI in I'm Not really A Waitress
The ELF polish consistency is a little thinner than the other two brands but not so thin that you feel like you are applying water to your nails. Regarding the chip factor, I would say this product chips around the same time as most brands, no sooner and no later. (Except for OPI which I have found to be a really long lasting polish along with Essie).
- Notice the cute little decorative drop of nail polish hanging from the ELF bottle. I have purchased $1.00 polish in the past and this is by far the best one. I would buy an ELF polish again.
