Review: Tip Top Nail Chic Polish

Just when you think you know every nail polish brand under the sun you get an email and realize you're wrong. I first heard of Tip Top nail polish brand when they sent me a message asking me to review their polishes. And I accepted the offer. Three nail polish shades and a nail treatment for my honest opinion. You got it!

Let me tell you right away - I suck at reviewing nail treatment products. I have to use them regularly for a longer period of time to tell you about the results and I just fail at that. Especially now when I'm not using base coat at all. Polish, maybe a layer of top coat and I'm good to go. If I ever try out this Tip Top Miraculous Results Nail Build thing properly I'll let your know about it.

Nail Build Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Phthalic Anhydride/Trimellitic Anhydride/Gylcols Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Adipic Acid/Fumaric Acid/Phthalic Acid/Tricyclodecane Dimenthanol Copolymer, Silica, Glycerin, Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Flour Extract, Hypnea Musciformis Extract, Methylparaben, CI 77891.

I did try the polishes though. =) I hoped for darker (my kind of) shades, but these are the ones I got:

Tip Top, Pot-O-Berries, 2 coats

Tip Top, Rocky Road Glitter (over Pot-O-Berries), 2 coats

Tip Top, Sexy Bikini, 2 coats

WOW, I don't even know where to start... As I already mentioned, I never heard of Tip Top brand before. The first thing I did after receiving their e-mail was searching info about them on the internet. Without much luck. They have a Facebook page, but that's not enough for me since I'm not really using FB myself. Their website however is currently under construction. That means I still haven't seen their range of colors, products and prices. Too bad. That's the first and most important thing for all customers and I hope they'll fix it soon. 

About the polishes: They come in cute little 10 mL bottles and are free of Formaldehyde, Dibutylphthalate (DBP), Toluene and Camphor. So - the polishes are big 4 free! Polishes have flat and flexible brushes that are an absolute dream to work with. They're not bushy, none of them was wonky or stiff. Perfection. Just like the formula - great consistency, not goopy or too runny. And the best thing: the polishes are opaque in 2 coats. Drying time is fast, since the formula isn't thick and you only need 2 coats. Overall I'm SO impressed with these polishes, I can't even tell you. I don't know if all the shades are this good or if I just got the shades which were picked very carefully. I only know that I would love too see/have more of these. Plus, I'd love to be able to get more information on Tip Top Nails. So, please, dear Tip Top people, take care of this - your polishes are way too good to not be known. 

Where can you find them? (hopefully)

  1. Tudi jaz prvič slišim za njih, ampak po tvojih besedah sodeč, ne slišim(o) zadnjič ;) Lahko bi ti pa poslali lepše odtenke, ja. :D

  2. I really like Sexy Bikini - not sure I have one quite that bubblegum pink shade ;) xx

  3. They seem nice but like you said, the prices and the color range is so important to know to give your final judgement.

  4. That's new to me too. The bottle shape is kind of cute!

  5. Price as little as R39.95 per bottel
    colour range are to die for believe me i am currently only 3 short from the full collection and love every single colour. I never used polish but since i got to know TTP my nails are painted, stronger, healthy and i even try my hand at nail art.

    Tip Top is the best nail polish by far

    1. Hey!) how much is R40 in dollars? And what colors do they have? Are there many blues/turquoise/mints? Creams or shimmers? Any special effects?

      Sorry for loading you with questions but you seem like the only person out there to know something about these polishes ^_^

  6. 39 South African rand is $4,7..... R1=$0,12

  7. That glitter is great! I like the other colors a lot too. I've been using the Nail Build and I really like it! I'm ging to be sad when my bottle runs out since I can't get anymore in the US!

  8. As a South African I can tell you, Tip Top is AMAZEBALLS! Very cheap, opague, awesome formula! And the consistency of these polishes are amazing! Every polish I have of them is 2 coaters, even the pastels!
