Genius Or Crazy? Lacquerous Offers You Nail Polishes For Rent

Has it ever happened to you to see a certain shade of nail polish on the shelf of a store, but hesitate when it comes to actually buying it, due to its price and the fact that you know you would only end up using it maybe once or twice?

Lacquerous now offers you a solution to your problem, through a most surprising service: nail polishes for rent. The website allows you to choose from a series of famous brands, such as M.A.C., Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana or Deborah Lippmann, and for $18/month, you receive three nail polishes of your choice every 30 days, which you’re allowed to use for up to three times each.

The fact that nail polishes do not store transferable bacteria or fungi, due to the fact that they contain ethyl acetate, makes this a hygenic service, but as far as I’m concerned, my love for deliciously-coloured nail polishes would probably make me want to keep each and every bottle that I received, adding them to my already dangerously huge collection.
