Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro in Lava Red
Though the bottle shows a lot of red sparkle, it is actually very subtle when you apply it and almost looks black.

Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro in Lava Red
The brush is large and wide and is great for a quick and easy application of nail colour. This nail polish will last up to 10 days without chipping if you use a top coat.

Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro in Purple Rain
This is a very dark, opaque purple colour and it looks black in certain lighting.

The brush is large and wide and allows for a quick and easy application of colour. This nail polish will last up to 10 days without chipping if you use a top coat.

Rimmel's 60 Seconds in Grey Matter
This is an opaque grey colour. It is a very light and cool grey. It dries quickly, but only if you let it dry in between coats.

Essie's In Stitches
This is a pink-coral colour. The formulation is thick enough that you only need one coat to achieve an opaque and even colour, but two coats will make it last longer on your nails.

All of these nail polishes (with the exception of the one from L.A. Colors) tend to last on my nails without chipping for at least 3 days. If I add a top coat, they last closer to a week with minimal chipping. 

All of these nail polishes are available at most drug stores, with the exception of the limited edition ones.
