This week, the beauty awards crew chose the best nail colours and brands for all you beauties on a budget

This week the Beauty Awards gives three cheers for our favourite affordable nail polishes. We chose the nail polishes that won’t pinch your purse and we picked our favourite colours too.


Burgundy babe

We love Morgan Taylor (available for R155 at Dis-Chem) nail polish in burgundy. It lasts longer than other brands and they mean it when they say it’s quick drying.

Glittery gold

Essence peel off nail polish (available for R55 at Zando) is awesome. It literally peels off – no need for nail polish remover.

Not feeling the blues

If you’re not a fan of black nail polish but still want to make a statement, a shade of blue is what you need. Mavala nail polish is our beauty awards panel pick and its available for R89 at Clicks.

Perfect pink

Well we couldn’t leave out pink now could we? The beauty awards crew loved this pink shade from O.P.I (get it for R119 at Takealot).

Feel the heat

Red is a classic and Sally Hansen is a long lasting, wonderful-to-apply brand – they go together perfectly. A bottle of Sally Hansen will cost you R72.49 at Clicks.

In the nude

If you love muted colours, try Sorbet’s nude shade for 30 bucks from Clicks. Super affordable.
