How long does nail polish from H&M stay on?

H&M has expanded their beauty products, which is a fact. The shelves in the shops are reclassified again with the feeling of being in a chemist’s shop. When I was in the H&M in Utrecht, I walked to this department and I saw a few nail polishes with a very big €2 on it!

My eyes couldn’t look away from it, because of the price. What is only €2? For my Halloween outfit, I was already looking for black nail polish, so I thought: perfect! I haven’t bought nail polish from H&M before, so I am curious about the quality and if the colour suits me. As for my Halloween outfit, there will be a new post about it, so keep an eye on my blog, because it’ll be spectacular!

Once I arrived at home, I wanted to paint my nails immediately. I was very curious if the colour is opaque and if it stays on for a long time, therefore this review.

Bring it on!
I already had a nude gel colour on from Barry M., so I had to remove that colour first. After when my nails were spic and span, I filed my nails for a moment, because oh my they didn’t look good!

During painting my nails, I saw that the colour wasn’t opaque enough after the first layer, so I put two layers on it. When I was finished, I stared at my fingers and honestly I think the colour suits me. Since black on black is the latest trend, it’s a nice bonus.

As for the quality of the nail polish, I’m pretty surprised about it, because the nail polish stayed on my nails for a quite long time. Ordinarily I’m used to it that the nail polish is chipping off already after 1 or 2 days, but as you can see on the photos, it’s still okay after day 2. Still a couple days to go, so I’m curious about how it will turn out.

My nails didn’t look good after day 5. Because I weekly take photos of my outfit or let somebody else take them, my nails should look perfect. I do think my nail polish stays on my nails long enough, though. What do you think?

    Usually I can make my nails last without chipping for a week. If I’m super careful sometimes two. But for the price tag this doesn’t sound like a bad option 🙂

      Wow a week and if you are careful sometimes two! What’s your secret (A) X

    I haven’t tried the H&M beauty line yet, but that color is perfect for the fall and winter months!

    I would like my nail polish to stick for about a week. For 2 euros I think this is a great result! For this price, I would definitely try it. Usually I use Essie or Opi.

      Yes, I thought so too 🙂 I also love Essie! It stays even longer. X

    It looks longer lasting than most. And you really can’t beat the price!

    I think it depends on what you do, for example if you are cleaning your house and doing dishes the polish goes off so quick. I use red nail polish and a transparent one over that one and it lasts around 2 weeks 🙂 I love HM nail polish tho, it is so cheap 🙂

      That’s true! I basically did everything. You are kidding me. 2 weeks? WOW! Thanks for the tip, though! X

    Will have to check these out. I love a decent priced nail varnish (I have a bit of an addiction to Barry M nail varnish). The colour looked great.

      I recently! I’ve tried the gel polish and it really stays a week/one week and a half. Thanks for passing by Natalue! X

    I’ve never used H&M nail varnish but after seeing this, I don’t think I will. I chip really good brands within a day so this would practically be non existent!

    For 2 Euros it isn’t bad and pretty average. I would buy it for when I want to have my nails painted for a day. Not sure that I would run to H&M for quality polish but for a cheap buy, sure! 🙂 Thanks for the review 🙂

    That’s a pretty average staying time for me.

    I’m hopeless keeping nail polish on, no matter how much I pay for the polish or the manicure! (unless I get gels) I always end up doing some project that destroys them haha

      haha me too Jen. Beside that my nails are not very strong. X

    I guess you get what you pay for… For 2 Euros, it’s not bad… WOuld love to see the results with a base coat too…

    • Essere Moda
      10/25/2016 / 9:49 PM

      I totally agree! I think after a base coat the nail polish will even stay longer 🙂

  13. 10/24/2016 / 6:21 PM

    I’ve never used H&M polish before. I like to change my nail colors a lot, so for this price this will be a good deal for me! Thanks for your review!

    Yep without a top coat, this will not last that long. I tried it with a top coat it will last for a week.
