Today's topic is centered on nail polish brands, and their image (bottle design) .I know we all have our favorites and our not-so-favorites as far as formulation and other areas. I'm curious to know if you think there is a nail polish brand out there that could use a little update as far as their image?
Do you find any brands bottles to be outdated, not so flattering, cheap looking, and in need of a makeover? What are they? What is it about them you don't like?
Does the look of this brand(s) bottle of polish deter you from purchasing from the brand?
How could this brand(s) change to make them better?
Revlon- This is my instant gut reaction to this question. Revlon seems to have the same exact bottle design forever. I know my mother has some Revlon bottles from 1988 in the back of closest somewhere that look the same. Perhaps, this is the intention. This is what they want, the timeless look, the tried and true. However, I think it's ugly, dated, and unappealing. I love the Top Speed bottles, just adding the silver writing and the silver caps does wonders! It totally freshens up their look. I think doing something as simple as changing the color of their caps, font, and color on their bottles would do wonders. I would be less likely to pass them by!
NYC- I barely shop this brand because their bottles are so well, cheap looking. I'm not enticed at all to look through their nail products because of this. I also think they have too much writing on their bottles. Simple is better. I understand they are on the lower-end of drugstore price-wise, but I feel a more uniform look would do wonders. Remember Love Letters? I would of never picked this one up if it hadn't been blogged about, based on the look for their bottles.
Nicole by OPI- These are the worst bottles ever, not to mention difficult to use. I saw Cris from Let Them Have Polish describe it best, referring to these bottles as "saggy boobs". The bottle is absolutely ridiculous. It's not functional. That's my main problem with this brand.
