7 Fun Facts about Nail Polish Brands You Should Know ...


Facts about nail polish brands are such a fun part of the whole nail polish collecting business.2

I love my nail polishes, love to see my collection growing, love discovering new brands and I especially love learning new and interesting things about my favorite ones.

Some nail polish facts are, of course, more fun than others, but they all make me feel like I’m a part of something big and quite ancient.2

But we won’t make any huge trips down the memory lane today.

So, how about some cool facts about nail polish brands we all know and love?2

1. YSL Nail Polishes Are Not Three-Free

Probably not amongst the most fascinating facts about nail polish brands but hey, it’s useful and we just love useful, don’t we, girls?

YSL evidently isn’t into the whole “let’s reformulate our polishes, maybe make them a tad less deadly” kind of thing, which definitely has its highs and its lows.

The good news is that you’re still getting the very same product you used to pinch when mom wasn’t looking and the bad… Well, let’s just say there’s a reason nail polish manufacturers were urged to drop certain chemicals.

2. OPI Used to Produce Dental Supplies


actually stands for Odontorium Products Inc.

and, as shocking as it may sound, nail polish-making had not been their first business choice.

Not until they realized they already had all it takes to come up with what would later become known as their Traditional Acrylic System, that is!

Things have been working out more than well for OPI since then but, hey, that is a well-known fact.

3. Essie Sold Her Polishes Door to Door

If somebody told you door to door sales in Vegas are a perfect way to launch a new brand, you’d probably laugh it off and refuse to pay for such a silly piece of advice.

But that’s exactly how Essie launched her line of nail polishes and it worked like a charm.

Direct sales in a glitz and glam area with so many performers had been a way to go in a pre-Internet era, which only serves to prove that even the most brightly lit roads need to be paved by hard-working, creative individuals.
