How many manicures can you get with one bottle of nail polish?

So if you've been following my previous posts, a lot of my blog posts are inspired by questions posed to me by my customers. This post is no different!

How many manicures can you get with one bottle of nail polish?

I get this question a lot and for the life of me, I don't know why I took 6 years to find out the answer for myself.

I have asked manicurists from salons and those who work from home. I have asked nail bloggers and influencers. I have asked my wife and my sisters.

But today I decided to get to the bottom of this mystery (that shouldn't actually be a mystery at all!)

But first, some assumptions for the experiment:

1) The test bottle has a volume of 5ml

2) A typical manicure consists of 2 applied coats of nail polish

3) The nail palette is larger than most people's nails but let's assume that's the typical size (by making it bigger we err on the side of caution anyway)

4) There were no mistakes made in the application (hence 10 painted nail palettes equals to 1 full manicure)

Did you guess right?
