Save or Splurge: Nail Polish


I'm torn with this one. I do love nail polish, but I'm too lazy to wear it most of the time. However, I have paid a little more for a great color that I know I'll wear. While it seems like Wet N Wild or NYC should sell almost any color, there are just those amazing shades that seem to come only in the pricier polishes.

Nail polish also doesn't last forever, and I almost never use an entire bottle before throwing it away. I don't mind throwing away $1.49, but throwing away $8 kind of bothers me, even if only about $5 are left.

I am currently coveting this shade from Nicole by OPI. I think it's about $8 at Target (it looks a little different in person). I could see me wearing this color, and none of the cheaper brands have anything remotely close. So I guess I'm a bit stuck because I feel like nail polish should be a save, but I am usually inclined to splurge. Thoughts?

Nicole's over half that at Walmart. I'm ashamed of myself for knowing that.
