We love a good at-home mani-pedi, but as we swipe on that perfect shade of pink we can already envision it chipping in a matter of days or even hours. And, a chipped nail does not make a happily polished girl. So instead of hitting the nail salon, we suggest, hit the drugstore. With low price points, stunning shades, and in several cases a cut-back on chemicals, the drugstore polishes on this list are giving shellac and salon grade gel polishes a run for their money.
