What’s better than good nail polish? Good nail polish that’s cheap.

b.s.n. Nail Lacquer and Win Cosmetics are brands that I’m assuming are pretty obscure. I can only find a handful of reviews for b.s.n., but no websites that are selling it. And I’ll never know how popular Win Cosmetics is, since Googling “win cosmetics” will just bring you to a bunch of contests and drawings. But they’re cheap, and wear nice! The only complaint that I have is that they both smell like toxic death, much like Kleancolor. I’m sure both brands have got all those yucky chemicals that most people try to avoid, but I don’t mind.

You guys should know by now how obsessed I am with this shade of springy, minty, pistachio green! And b.s.n. did not disappoint—I have a bunch of brands’ renditions of this color, but this is by far my favorite.

This is three glorious, buttery coats of b.s.n. Nail Lacquer Meadow. I didn’t mind needing a third coat, since that’s pretty typical for this type of color.

It’s so perfect.

Here’s another color I’m quite fond of! This is Win Cosmetics 49. If memory serves me, this was two thick coats.

It dries completely smooth and shiny on its own, as do all the other Win Cosmetic colors I’ve used!

I consider b.s.n. and Win pretty synonymous. They’re both affordable, but surprisingly good quality. But I can’t find much information about either of them online! Have any of you guys tried them? What did you think?

A Pink Affair

Pink!

Pink everywhere!

I never wear pink, in clothing or polish—I love the color, but it looks terrible on me! But, I must say that I do adore Sinful Colors Island Coral, a coral/salmon creme.

Island Coral is what most people would call a crelly, I think. It’s a squishy jellyish polish that layers to opacity. I’m wearing three coats here.

The metallic color is Win Cosmetics 85. This is… I want to say two coats? It might have been one. I’m wearing it over one coat of Island Coral. Kinda streaky, but pretty.

Frosty

Are you ready for a brand you’ve probably not gotten the chance to encounter?

This is W.i.n Cosmetics #13. I’ve only ever seen this brand in one store and I can’t find it online anywhere. It eludes me. It’s a shame because their jellies are bangin’.

This is two coats with no topcoat. Look how flippin’ shiny and perfect this looks!!

Of course, I couldn’t leave it alone—I gave it some frosted tips, because it’s that time of year, I suppose!

This is Nails Inc. Winter Mews from their Crushed Diamonds line.

I quite liked this mani. It didn’t wear well at all though—I had such bad tip wear by the end of the next day that I ended up removing it. Is it because jellies generally have bad wear time? I wouldn’t be surprised. I’ll be sure to try more jellies and more W.i.n, though.
