Brand Review: Tip Top Nails

Hi Girls, 
I hope many of you know about Tip Top Nails for those who doesn't, Tip Top Nails is a South African nail polish brand. Tip Top Nails stocks variety of polishes including creams, metallic, crackle, glitter etc. and also has many Nail Treatments like Cuticle Treatment,Anti-Fungal, Quick Dry and the one which amazed me most is Nail Bitters which is a bitter taste top coat that helps in stooping nail biting habit :D

When i come to now about Tip Top polishes, I was quite curious as they say that these polishes are vegan, Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (Dibuthyl Phthalate) and Camphor FREE – and made in South Africa with the best raw materials.In addition these polishes are not tested on animals. Isn't it tempting enough.

I got a package to review which included some polishes and their base and top coat too and i am quite impressed with that. Polishes came well packed in a black shopping bag inside a cardboard.

I decided to swatch polishes in parts. Formula is neither runny nor thick.. i like the brush most.. its good in quality and cover my whole nail just in 2 strokes which is a bigg plus. 

First polish is "Cherry's in the Snow" its a blood red cream polish which is opaque in 2 coats. Tip Top Nails has 2 range of polishes Tip Top Nail Chic Polish which are exclusive to Clicks Stores and Nail Addict by Tip Top which is exclusive to Foschini Stores Nationwide in South Africa.
gorgeous.. isnt it?? Application was smooth and they really dry quickly.

I also got U Crack Me Up Rikki Brest crackle polish in gold.
this polish is a duo bottle. one side has crackle polish and other side is topcoat. I thought to do a crackle notd on my red nails.
polish application is smooth and an included top coat really a big help for people like me who paint their nails in tube for instant notd for a party .. :D. 

I further added some rhinestones to complete the look. 

Finally i am very impressed with the polishes specially the brush and the drying time. They have variety of colors and some very interesting shades.  One thing i like about the brand is that they are very interactive on social media always doing some challenges, tips ans trick for nail art , tutorials etc.

You can check their range on the website Tip Top Nails.
You can also contact them on Facebook or Twitter

*** this product was sent to me for review but that doesn't effect my views.


  1. I wonder if any of these companies do a search on possible dup names when they are considering names for their polish - know there are many dupes out there - but right off I thought of an older used to be iconic OPI shade called Cherries In The Snow - granted this company here puts cherry into the possessive - which is grammatically not correct - I mean cherries cannot 'own' snow. Oh well, me being picky but then I work as an editor so I see others goofs and never mine!

    1. :D :D... ur so right cherries definitely cant own snow ..
