Nail Polish

Shelf Life: Indefinite

With proper storage, polish can last anywhere from one year to forever, but it's most important to check for signs of spoiling, like clumps or color fading, rather than relying on a designated shelf life. Just make sure to keep your beloved varnishes out of direct sunlight and in a dark, cool setting.
