In regular retail stores the cheapest I've found China Glaze is $5.99 at Sally's (with their club card). Online though I've found them around $3 a bottle, and factoring in shipping it averages to around $4 a bottle. Still way cheaper, and the selection is much more amazing! In all my searching I have found two websites to be the best. I will describe each one. Some things are the same for each site, but there are some differences.
HEAD2TOEBEAUTY (click me!)
China Glaze averages for around $3.25/bottle. Some are a little more depending on the type of polish. INCREDIBLE selection....you can find polishes from collections from like 3 years ago. After shipping, bottles are about $4.00-$4.15/bottle. Does sell other brands such as Essie and Orly, but they are sold at regular retail rates. Able to sell collections as soon as they are released; almost always has them before stores. Sells manicure accessories for awesome prices as well as skin care and hair care. Has a continuous 5% off sale (it's not much, but it's something!); just type in the first three letters of the month you are in and then 05 after it. Ex. SEP05. Ships internationally. I experienced quick shipping.
TRANS DESIGN (click me!)
China Glaze averages for around $3.25/bottle. After shipping, bottles are about $4.00-$4.15/bottle. Some are a little more depending on the type of polish. Pretty good selection, but Head2ToeBeauty has a much wider, larger selection. Does sell other brands such as Essie and Orly, and they ARE sold at discounted rates. They sell Essie for $4.00 (retails for $8). Orly sells at $4.25. Able to sell collections as soon as they are released; almost always has them before stores. Shows previews of polish collections/items that are coming soon. This website seems to mostly sell nail polish/supplies with a few other products. Ships internationally. I experienced quick shipping.
I have a running wishlist of polishes that I want to get from these sites. The biggest thing about buying online is to make sure you are looking up swatches since you aren't able to see them in person. Another option is to go into a store and look at them. A great retail store to check out is Beauty Brands. They have the largest polish selection that I have found. I've gone in there a few times to look at them in person and then I was able to add it to my list or take it off if I didn't like it. But ya know...I'm also a little crazy because now since my collection is getting rather large I really have to take the time to figure out if I already have a shade close to what I'm looking at because the last thing I need is two colors that are like 1 shade apart. So you may just be able to buy and not worry about it, haha! But really, at least looking at a swatch online will give you a better color representation to figure out if you want it or not.
Thanks for checking out my post! Much love and polish!
