I’m starting to wonder if soon we’ll be able to buy nail lacquer at McDonald’s, Starbucks, a bodega or maybe even at a gas station because those might be the only places left that don’t already carry it.
It’s no secret that the nail category has become huge. Like $710 million dollars in sales huge. Which is probably why non-beauty focused retailers are trying to get in on the action by positioning polish as an impulse item in their stores. I feel like I’m seeing it more and more everywhere I go. Here are six places where I’ve spotted it:
2. Urban Outfitters
4. American Apparel
5. J. Crew
6. Forever 21
And those are just the stores that I’ve walked into recently–I’m sure there are more displays out there I haven’t seen. And it’s all proof that nail polish is quietly taking over the world.
Have you ever bought nail polish somewhere other than a drugstore, makeup counter or beauty supply store? Would you consider it?
