Holy Toledo!! | Haul from Nationwide Nail Supply

I've been to Nationwide Nail Supply in Houston so many times in the past, but I drove by a few weeks ago and realized that I have not stopped by in so long.

So I wandered in and was mesmerized by how much more they have now than they did 2 almost 3 years ago.  (Of course they would have more)
They have two double-sided OPI stands with so many new colors and some that I have wanted for quite some time, but did not want to pay a good bit of money for.

They also had a large China Glaze rack, an Essie rack, Color Club Rack, Art Club Rack, an isle of Chelsea and others like it, Orly and the entire collection of Zoya Polishes.

Ahhh!  I was kicking myself after seeing it because they Zoya's were less than $4.00 each!

Anyway...I grabbed the polishes below, OPI Lint-Free Wipes 150ct for $1.00, and Qtica Vanilla Plum Hand Scrub for only $6.00!!!!  Woohoo!  I love this scrub!

They are meant to be wholesale, and the prices I got were from the owner.  Depending on when you come in you can either get things for less expensive than other places or you can get them for less, less, less (I repeat) less expensive than anywhere else I have ever seen, but if you have a license you can get everything for even less than that!!

The top row are polishes that I got for the 259 followers Giveaway.  :oP
(Yeah, that's how long ago this was taken)
CG OMG, OPI DS Extravagance and OPI Glow-Ink in the Dark.
The bottom row has CG OMG, OPI DS Sapphire, Glow-Ink in the Dark, Exclusive (I already owned Extravagance) and Chelsea Kaleidoscope.

Until Next Time!

OMG! That is such a great price! You so lucky!
Got your card today! Thank You so much! And the stamp is so cute! You and your hubby are such a cute couple! You will have gorgeous kids! Your Mood polish's are up next! And we LOVE them!!! We I had the purple one on for two days and hated to take it off! My DH was crazy about it too. I think it is one of my top 5 favs! It is seriously cool!

Laura said...

:o) I felt like such a dufus for forgetting to put the card in the box.

I can't wait to see your swatches! Mine are always indoors because by the time I get to put anything on my nails it is usually around midnight.
My photos are never great. :(

Halifax said...

Awesome place to shop, and great selection too, from what I saw you post. How lucky :-)

WizardsOfBling said...

Hey, don't feel bad. I just sent out a box and I had to tape the card on the top. :) We have a really hard time with getting sun in spring. And I do my nails late most of the time. I have been using the bathroom with all the lights on.

Arie said...

omg!! I have been twice in Houston and didn't know about this store, oh lord!!!
Super thanks for sharing! :)
Hey I found just a couple days ago that Marc's has Opi for 6.50 plus tax, I don't know if that's a good price?! I only have one old Opi that my mom gave me ^_^, but I am guessing that could be a very good price uh?.

Laura said...

I think that is a good price.
In regular retail stores the go for about $8.00.

Nationwide Nail Supply is located at:
3215 Fannin Street
Houston, TX 77004-2901

If you are back in the area, I also recommend going to High Fashion Home as they have lots of fun stuff. I really like Kikkerland, and they carry a lot of their stuff.

I got the Samurai umbrella from there, and the cupcake luggage tag and froggy reusable bag in my giveaway were some things I got from High Fashion Home. I usually go there for work since they have 4 floors of fabrics.
If you like rhinestones (I mean the real Crystal ones), go across the street to High Fashion Fabrics as well. They sell lots of fabrics and trims you can make clothes out of.

You can go totally broke in those three places. Especially since all three are so close together.

Wait -- WHAT? In HOUSTON! That is where I live!! You have just possibly made my fricken day. :D

Jackie S. said...

OH..I wish I lived in Houston, I would be there ALL the time!

have you tried OPC nail supply in Texas?

I need a place like that in Los Angeles!

Lily nail said...

if only we have a shop like this in france :)

Arie said...

Hi Laura, I just posted on my blog that I went back to Marc's today, and found out that some Opi colors are on sale for 3.50!!!
Thank you so much for the info and address for Houston, now where is my my piggy bank?! ;)

Caitlin said...

I'm so jealous! I wish we had a place like that here :) such great prices, and all the stuff that you got is great! xo

Dark Blue said...

Second to bottom right looks like a gorgeous shade.

We have a chemist warehouse near my place selling cosmetics that are still in trial or discontinued, so you can stuff like Loreal velvet matte foundation for $5! Gotta love a good bargain.

Laura said...

ch3rryco1a, I can't believe you live in Houston! That totally rocks!

You definitely need to stop by, and hopefully you have the owner ring you up because I find he gives me better pricing than what the employees do. Well, if he is in the room he tells them how much to charge so I find that I get better pricing that way as well.

There was one time I went in, and one of the ladies did not know how much to charge for one of the foil Orly polishes so she had to ask him in the back and she was told to charge 5.00. I decided to wait on it.

This last time I went in he was going to sell it for $4.00. I'm still trying to decide if I should really get it.

I think I am definitely going to have to grab the set.

I've never been to OPC Nail Supply, but I looked it up and I may be in the Dallas area sometime this summer, and I am going to convince Eric to stop by.

I love you for telling me about this. I live in Austin, Texas, but maybe this is worth driving to Houston for.
