In continuing with a week of “Amor de Lacquer”, I would be loca to not tell you where I make my polish purchases.
People ask me all the time.
“B, how in the world are you able to afford so many polishes?”
Friends and family, if yall haven’t noticed already, I am cheap. LOL, seriously. I like nice things like most people, but I am always trying to stretch a dollar.
Nail polish purchasing is no exception. I do the majority of my nail polish purchasing online at the following e-tailers.
- Transdesign, Inc.-Manufacturer and Distributor of Beauty Products
- Head2ToeBeauty Beauty store-Hair care, nail care, skin care
- 8ty8Beauty Supply-Beauty supplies for less
I highly recommend them ALL. I honestly don’t have a favorite because customer service, and product availability is superb with all of them. And chances are if one of them doesn’t have it, the other two probably do.
AND….they release nail polish collections waaaay before they hit stores.
AND…the prices are usually 30-50% less than what you would pay in stores.
For in-store nail polish purchasing, I
stalk visit Ulta. Sometimes their clearance racks have insane discounts on China Glaze, Ulta brand and Essie polishes. I’m talkin’ around $2.99 or so.
Other cheap in-store nail polish spots?
Drug stores: Wal-greens has Sinful Colors’ polishes for $1.99. Wet ‘N Wild and Milani are ALWAYS on sale for under $3-$4.
Dollar stores: I have found some wonders in The Dollar Tree and those 99 Cents stores.
Swapin’ with friends: Honestly, how many polishes can you stand to get rid of? Chances are a girlfriend of yours does too. Swap!
See! You don’t have to spend $10 on OPI (I never have, ha!) to sport beautifully polished nails.
Where do you generally make your polish purchases?
