Remember the days when Netflix seemed like the most innovative concept ever? Product makers in just about every arena are trying to capitalize on similar subscription success. From makeup to tampons, it seems as though there’s a subscription service for everything these days! If you’re a nail polish addict, luxury nail varnish club Lacquerous may be the service for you!
Launched in November of this year, Lacquerous provides subscribers with monthly shipments of high-end, designer polish. The price? $18 a month. That $18, however, entitles the subscriber access to THREE bottles of premium polish at a time (we’re talking colors by Chanel, Tom Ford, NARS, MAC, etc) in shades that specifically appeal to them. Potential caveats? The aforementioned polish bottles aren’t guaranteed to be new–just “at least half-full”–based on shade availability, and they must be returned via pre-paid return label within 30 days. The site also asks that subscribers only use each polish a maximum of three times per rental period, and they monitor the amount of polish in each bottle to make sure everyone is playing fair. After your polishes are returned (and I assume approved), however, Lacquerous will send over another three of your favorite shades! Seems kinda steep for a sample, no? But then again, can you ever remember using an entire bottle of polish? Questions, questions.
Would you try Lacquerous? What products do you wish you could “subscribe” to?
