Cheap, beautiful polishes from H&M - Nerd and Je T'aime

A friend and I went shopping before Christmas, and the mall we visited had an H&M. I'd never been in one before, and I was pretty stoked to see their extensive polish collection. I was even more stoked when I saw most of them were $2-$3. Sadly, the polishes were on several small displays, so I looked like a lunatic running from one to the next. 

The first polish I grabbed was snatched up solely because of the name. Nerd. Seriously. There is no way I couldn't get this polish. It just so happens that has an excellent formula and is the closest I've found to my mannequin hands shade.

Two coats of H&M Nerd with no topcoat. Look at the shine! The cap was only slightly annoying as the large square thing isn't a false cap at all. It's really that big.

Je T'aime is a smaller bottle and was only $1.99. It is a beautiful candy apple red with tons of gold shimmer. There is a smattering of silver in there as well. The formula on this one was also pretty stellar, but the brush was very short & stumpy and the cap felt disproportionate.

Was it worth the money? Yes! This is a perfect shade for a Valentine's Day mani. Photos are two coats, no top coat.


  1. Gah! Nerd is just perfect for you! And not just because you're a nerd ;-) What a great color!

    1. I take that as a high compliment! Thanks, Gail. :)
