Beauty Tried And Tested: The Best Coral Nail Polishes

Want to know what the best coral nail polishes on the high street are? Then LOOK’s very own Beauty Editor Sophie Beresiner and LOOK reader Louiza Petrou are here to help, as they’ve scoured the shops to find the four best coral nail polishes to put to the test… 

Beauty Editor: This went on so smoothly! The pearlescent finish looked a bit retro, but it’s great if you’re rocking an ’80s look.
Louiza: I wasn’t crazy about the colour and found it took a long time to dry between coats. It lasted well, though, and didn’t chip or peel off for ages. Beauty Score: 2/5
Beauty Editor: This needed two coats, but looked lovely when it had dried. The brush was easy to use, but it didn’t last long before it chipped. Use a topcoat to protect it.
Louiza: The colour was great, but the consistency was so watery that it was hard to get an even finish. I had to apply three coats in total. Beauty Score: 3/5
Beauty Editor: A coral with attitude. If you don’t want a girlie shade, this one’s perfect. It went on a treat and had an ultra-glossy finish. Loved it.
Louiza: I absolutely adored this one! It went on smoothly and you only need one coat for a bold colour. I’d wear this to brighten up a plain outfit.
Beauty Score: 5/5
  • Models Own Nail Polish in Fuzzy Peach, £5
Beauty Editor: A lighter shade that’s bang on the money for spring’s punchy colours. Go for a lilac lip and catapult yourself into holiday mode.
Louiza: This went on evenly, and although it was the palest shade of the bunch, it still only needed one coat and dried in under a minute. I was really impressed. Beauty Score: 4/5
