I’ve been known to joke that a nail polish collection is a poor girl’s fetish. We’re too broke for frequent trips to the salon and there’s no way we could afford a collection of designer shoes or handbags. So instead we treat ourselves to varnish. Well, according to a Time Magazine article published earlier this year that philosophy goes even further with the journalist suggesting that nail polish sales (along with cheap booze) go up during recession and times of economic crises. It got me thinking about nail polish and which cruelty-free brands are giving us the best bang for our buck.

Well helloooooo Autumn. We’re midway into the season. The nights are starting sooner and the air is becoming crisper . It’s perfect weather to rug up indoors and treat yourself to a DIY manicure.
You might be thinking of pulling out black, burgundy or burnt orange nail colours, but what about trying a mint or pastel green to go with the warm-toned fashion?
