I purchased a few of the Maybelline nail polishes at Dischem for R35, which is a bargain! My favourite one is Mauve Kiss. It is a beautiful beige that is perfect for everyday wear and especially if you work in an environment where you cannot necessarily wear bright shades. The brush is of medium thickness. It applies relatively well and you get a streak free opaque nail in one coat. The lasting power, however, is not impressive. I usually struggle with chipping nails within 3 days.
