Is It Just Me, Or Is Nail Polish Now Sold EVERYWHERE?

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:


1. GAP

2. Urban Outfitters

3. Payless

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?
