Here's a list of my trusted nail polish/ art/ care retailers, sellers and spree organisers which I frequent to feed my nail polish addiction:
♥ D.Y.O.N International
Shipping: Free standard local delivery, but they mostly transact on-location.
Their permanent store is now located at *SCAPE Underground, daily, 12 - 9pm. Regular OPI at SGD 10, Orly at SGD 10. Current promotion: China Glaze at SGD 8 or 9. Other stuff such as Nail Tek, Seche, Poshe, Northern Lights, treatments and removers are available.
Shipping: Free standard local delivery
This is my second most patronised seller cum spree organiser. Really friendly, helpful, reliable and detailed. Organises regular polish sprees and also has some in-stocks. Best source (for me) in getting the lastest colour/ collections. Currently, regular OPI and shatter at SGD 10, China Glaze at SGD 9, Orly at SGD 10, Essie at SGD 11 and Zoya at SGD 12 each.
♥Mei Mei's Signatures
Shipping: Free standard local delivery. International shipping available.
Online stockist for a number of cult brands such as Glitter Gal, a-england, Estessimo TiNS, as well as favourites such as OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Barielle and Harmony. Recently established exclusive stockist status for a number for indie polishes such as Girly Bits, Cirque, All That Glitters, Glitterdaze, Sparkles by Julie, Daring Digits, Sealore and many, many more.
♥ Nail Vibe (Vibe)
Shipping: Free standard local delivery
Online store, as well as physical store at China Square Central #02-27 for favourites such as OPI, China Glaze, Essie, Zoya, Estessimo TiNS, Orly, Seche, Poshe, Northern Lights, Harmony etc. Slightly steeper in pricing.
Shipping: Free local delivery
Finally, a local distributor for butter LONDON! Priced at SGD 25 a bottle, I consider it to be pricey, but it's the only source in Singapore I know of at the moment. Purchase them online or get them at Takashimaya Department Store, B1, Bath Shop section.>
♥ Pixelated Nails
Shipping: Standard local delivery at SGD 0.80/bottle. International shipping available upon request.
Online stockist for Models Own, Nubar, China Glaze and Seche. Models Own and Nubar at SGD 13 each, China Glaze at SGD 9.50 each, and Seche Vite 0.5oz at SGD 12.00, 0.125oz at SGD 4.00.
♥ Shoppe EClecticCo
Shipping: Refer to site for local delivery charges. International shipping available.
Official reseller of ManGlaze for Asia and Australasia at SGD 22.50. Also a stockist for Layla, Jade, HITS and FNUG.
A great source for many US and Aussie indie polishes, and nail supplies at affordable prices.
♥ Skin Food
Base: Singapore (Retailer), parent company - Korea
Shipping: Cash & Carry
One of my favourite Korean brand for polishes. Slightly better in formula than Etude House, regular bottle sizes. Love their glitter/ sparkle range and their prism colours are an afforadable alternative to OPI DS/ Orly FX. There were some health/ toxic issue with one of their ranges, so I generally stay clear from their Milk Creamy and Jojoba ranges. Prices start from SGD 5.50.
Shipping: N/A. Online sales has ceased.
They set up roaming fleas at the moment. Check out their "Events" page for updates. My favourite go-to stockist for the most affordable polishes in town. Regular OPI at SGD 10, China Glaze at SGD 8, Essie at SGD 9, and Orly at SGD 8 or SGD 10 for black caps. Nail treatments, base and top coats from Seche, Nail Tek, Poshe and Northern Lights are also available.
♥ Star Trinkets

Authorised stockist for piCture pOlish (between SGD 16.50 - 19.00) and OZOTIC (SGD 19.00). Star Trinkets also has its own line of custom-made polish jewellery and accessories, great for keepsakes and gifts to fellow lacquerheads.
