Remember old school DVD rentals? Or even older school video rentals (before my time too). Well, Lacquerous is aiming to be your Netflix for nail polish. The newly launched site aims to let you wear the latest in red carpet and runway nail trends without buying a full bottle. You pay $18 every month and they send you three bottles of nail polish.
They have a considerable selection of colors and brands, including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, NARS, OPI, Mac, and Dior. But, don’t try to cheat them. You’re only allowed 3 nail applications per bottle per rental. The site doesn’t explain how they monitor it, but apparently it’s very high tech- with machines or nail polish oompa loompas or something.
It’s a lovely try-before-you-buy system if you don’t have any qualms about used polish. With the average OPI bottle going for about $10 and Chanel bottle about $30 fashionistas on a budget may revel in the new options.
As of yet, there are no different plans. So girls that like to change their nail polish every day, or even every week are out of luck.
Try it out here.
