We all have our Holy Grail beauty products, ones we'll buy until the day we die, no matter how expensive they get. Everything else, however, is up for grabs - after all, experimenting is part of the fun of being a girl! (Or guy, we're not judging.) And, yet, who has the money to play around with expensive products willy-nilly in this economy? We sure don't. That's why we enlisted our price savvy amigas over at The Bargainist to help us out on a new feature we're calling Bargain Betty: The best new (and underappreciated standby) budget beauty finds, straight from our medicine cabinets to yours.
So many nail polishes today promise you the world: "Chip free for 30 days! Dries in 5 seconds! Ends world hunger! Make you hard long time!" But do said promises come to fruition? Nay, they do not. Plus, a lot of those "fast-dry" polishes don't come in the colors we want. Epic fail. That's why we're proud long-time users of Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat ($5). It really does dry your nails to the touch in about 60 seconds, and you're totally ready to read books, wash dishes, put on clothes, or whatever within five minutes. With two UV inhibitors, it protects nails from sun damage, and the finish stays chip-free for days. And, hello, $5!
