Battle of the Gel Nail Polish

Gel nails is somewhat of a newer trend going around. Companies are creating  a cheaper version of salon gel nails so that savvy savers out there who do their own nails can look like they have professionally done nails. So far I have tried two gel polishes; one from Wet n wild, “WNW”,  and one from Sally Hansen, “SH”.

I think that SH has experience with nail polishes, it’s their specialty so the quality is not surprisingly better. Both polishes go on smoothly and resist chipping longer than most regular polishes. I would say SH polishes are more opaque than the WNW. I probably should have used 3 coats for WNW where with SH I could probably get away with just one.

Just looking at retail price, in most drugstores near me SH’s is sold for $9.99 vs  WTN at $4.99 dollar polish. But I’ve purchased 2 of the SH products so far, both from CVS and I did not pay full price. See my earlier blog post here on how to save money on this purchase.

Overall I like them both I just prefer the color selection and density of Sally Hansen a bit more than Wet N Wild.
