How Much polish is in one jar of nail polish

Hello Humans of the internet.  Yesterday (about a week and a half ago for you as I won’t be posting this until after Thanksgiving) I asked myself a question:  How many coats of nail polish is in a jar of nail polish.  Is this a stupid question?  Probably.  Does anyone care about the answer?  Probably not.  Am I going to do a whole post about it anyway?  Yes.

After asking this very important question, I remembered that I’m an adult.  So, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a jar of nail polish.  Here is the nail polish.  It was $0.94. So, I already feel like this is going to be worth it.  And yes I am doing this at my computer and writing the post at the same time.wp-image-1187228968

First I had to clean off all the old polish.  Yes, my fingernails look kinda gross this is because I tried to stick on fancy fake nails with superglue.  It wasn’t well thought out okay.  I’m only going to include pictures of one hand because I’m doing this on my own and I don’t have anyone to help me take pictures.wp-image-1867618772.jpg

Each coat is one coat on each of my 10 fingers I felt like that was an important thing to think of, for science.  And here we have the very first coat.  The picture is kinda bad, because I’m really bad at taking pictures.wp-image-1084643478

I’m probably not going to take a picture of every layer because that’s going to get really boring for y’all.  Be right back when something interesting happens.  So, I’m only 5 layers in and I’m already starving.  Time for a Ramen break.wp-image--816416773

I’ve kind of lost count because I got really into a Zoella video on YouTube.  But I’m pretty sure I’m on layer 15.  It’s getting a little messy in the cuticles…

20 coats in and it’s starting to look bubbled up.  I don’t know how well you can see that, but it’s weird.  I also didn’t expect this many layers in one jar.


Okay.  So 40 layers and this is getting ridiculous.  It’s actually been hours…It’s after 4 and I started around 1.  I should have gotten a quick dry nail polish.


So I’m on coat 60 and It’s really starting to look bubbled up.  Like I thought 20 coats was a lot.  But now, I’m just questioning my choices.


Well, the answer is 83.  I don’t know how I’m going to get this off of my hands, but there are 83 coats of nail polish on my nails right now.  (4 of them have 84 coats).

I hope that you had a good Monday and I’ll try not to get this weird in the future.

much love,



I'm a writer with dyslexic.
