The Bargain Nail Polishes Kim Kardashian Loves

And you can pick them both up for less than $20 each

While Kim Kardashian is known for her glamorous hair and makeup looks (she uses more than 11 different products in her everyday makeup routine), she likes to keep things simple when it comes to other beauty treatments, like her manicure.

Kim, unlike her younger sister Kylie, prefers a more low-maintenance approach to her nails, opting to keep them trimmed and pared-back. “In the past, I’ve tried some pretty crazy trends, like pierced nails or neon polish. But, for every day, I keep my nails shorter and painted with a neutral colour,” she revealed in a post on her app.

We couldn’t agree more with her choice of an understated manicure, and are always on the hunt for the perfect nude nail polish that will add the right hint of colour and sophistication to our otherwise plain nails. So Kim’s reveal of the top two neutral nail polish shades that she can’t live without were music to our ears… assuming we can actually afford them!

Well, we have some good news: The polishes in question are OPI Nail Polish in Samoan Sand and Essie Nail Polish in Sand Tropez.

Both lacquers are varied shades of beige and suit anyone with a medium skin tone. And they will only set you back $19.95 and $14.95 respectively, which means they’re great options that won’t break the bank.
