JT One Nail Polish I discovered these budget nail polishes at woolworths in the JT One section. They all have Hashtags names, like; #MintyFresh #Yolo, ##JustSaying, #TooCool and many more. They don’t apply streaky which i was expecting due to the price, but they are actually really great quality.

Available from Woolworths and JT One stores for R29.99 each
