    Some of them are a bit pricey. The Sally Hansen range is wonderful though. It really only starts to chip after a week or so. Good value for money, and a big variety of colours

    Paying R265 for a cutex is a way bit out of my league. but Tip Top has received great reviews, would like to try them someday.
