Lacquerous: "Netflix for Nails"

Have you heard about Lacquerous yet? It's a new beauty start-up that launched last November marketed as "Netflix for Nails,” bringing luxury lacquer brands to consumers' front doors. Think butter LONDON, CHANEL, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, MAC, Tom Ford Beauty and more.

The online-subscription service bills its members $18 a month for a choice of three premium nail-lacquer shades.

When nail enthusiasts are done—whether it was for at-home and/or for in-salon use—they swap out old shades for new ones.
