Trend alert: nail polish in small quantities is a new service launching in the US, offering customers the chance to rent luxury nail polishes. 

New site Lacquerous will send subscribers a selection of three different luxury nail polishes for $18/month. Members are requested to use each color only three times each, and are required to return the polish at the end of the month, after which the shades will then be sent on to other users. Featured brands at launch include Dior, Chanel and Tom Ford. 

While some users might not fancy sharing their beauty products with strangers, the brand maintains that it's a hygienic service -- "all nail polish contains Ethyl Acetate. No bacteria, fungus or otherwise can live in nail polish." Those inclined to spread the love can benefit from three different luxury lacquers per month for the price of one bottle in the stores. 

Meanwhile, Dose nail polish perhaps offers another solution to the 'so many colors, so little time' problem. The brand has an attractively packaged set of miniature nail polish capsules. The $20 sets each contain three 3ml containers of formaldehyde-free varnish in different shades. 

For those looking for more nail fun, Fred Flare also sell a $12 set of mini colored nail polishes housed in a classic yellow Crayola box.
