There are certain nail polish brands that have earned a reputation for being top quality- you don't need to apply a million coats to get a smooth finish (or the intended color) and they resist chipping for more than a few days. Essie is one of those brands. A nail polish favorite of bloggers, manicurists and celebrities alike, Essie is great if you have ample money to spare. But at $8 a bottle, it's a tad expensive for gals on a budget when there are bills to be paid. So when I popped into Lot-Less, a discount store in downtown Manhattan, I was pleasantly surprised to find a shelf full of Essie nail polish deeply discounted. A two pack of the mini bottles cost me only $2.99... that's $1.50 a bottle. With vibrant spring-like colors such as "meet me at sunset" and "smooth sailing", this deal that will fly off the shelves in no time. Consider that your cue to hurry! Don't forget, salon manicures can add up to a lot of moolah, so DIY whenever possible!
