Free Nail Polish Samples

Most nail polishes aren’t extremely pricey, but boy do they sure stick around at the back of our makeup drawers for a long time. Nothing’s worse than buying a new bottle and finding the color looks nothing like the bottle once applied to your nails. And with some ringing up at $9 a pop, it’s still well worth your time to avoid buying a shade you realize you only want to ditch.

The solution? Try some free nail polish samples and know the color you’re getting before you spend your money on a product. Since it’s difficult to tell where a polish truly ranges in scale from sheer to opaque just from looking at the bottle, a nail polish sample can really help you out.

Free nail color samples can also be a huge help when you’re trying to test out a few different brands before you make a purchase. Curious which ones are great? Some of our favorite brands include O.P.I., Essie nail colors, MAC Cosmetics nail lacquer, and Estee Lauder nail polish. These are just a few suggestions and there are many great brands out there that can fit your needs. Test out a few, and see for yourself which ones tend to last the longest, which ones chip and which ones flake.

Here are the latest offers we’ve found. Some are available in store, and others are available by mail. Test one or test them all. :)
