Nail Polish per Oz.?

Since starting the blog up again and going on a buying spree, I've really been thinking about how deceiving some bottles are. You think you are getting the typical bottle around .5 fl oz. But in reality you could be getting nothing more then a fancy mini sized bottle. So what's the most expensive mainstream brand polishes by the ounce? 

1. Dior .33 fl oz $24 = $72/oz
2. Chanel .4 fl oz $26 = $65/oz
3. Urban Decay .3 fl oz $18 = $60/oz
4. Julep .27 fl oz $16 = $59/oz
5. Marc Jacobs .43 fl oz $22 = $51/oz
6. MAC .34 fl oz $16 = $47/oz
7. Illamasqua .5 fl oz $16 = $44/oz
8. Butter London .4 fl oz $17 = $42/oz
9. Deborah Lippmann .5 fl oz $20 = $40/oz
10. Ciate .45 fl oz $17 = $37/oz

So those were the top 10, what do you think? It's shocking to me that Julep is .27 fl oz per bottle and charges so much in stores. I never think of it as high end, but they also have a subscription service that can dramatically reduce the cost per bottle. Do you ever look at the fluid ounce on the bottle? Does it matter? I usually just go by colour but I'll defiantly be watching out for glorified minis from now on.

OPI Glitter Off Natural Nail Base Coat

This hasn't turned up at any of the beauty supply stores or drug stores around me yet but I'm so excited to see how well this works I'll be grabbing a bottle right away. Essentially you replace your regular base coat with this and apply your glitter polishes as usual and basically when your finished instead of fighting the glitter off it peels right off. This sounds like an amazing idea. Saving your finger from harsh removers :) I've read that Elmers school glue works much the same.

Nail Finds February 2014

Just a few new things I saw during my shopping trip. London Drugs had this new display, Revlon by Marchesa which had beautiful nail tools and the nail polish Valentine, a lovely deep red. It's not new but it also had the pretty design on the cap. 

This may not be new but Dollarama has OPI polishes! I had no idea! At $3 it's worth checking if your Dollarama has some. The one I was in had 4-5 shades. Dollarama also carries Nicole by OPI, Loreal, Revlon, and Sally Hansen.
