Where to buy wholesale nail polish supplies
It's not difficult to find wholesale nail polish supplies, especially with the internet. However, if you are a total beginner, you can check out these options:
Search engines such as Google are a good start if you’re just beginning to search for wholesalers for nail polish. You can search directly the type of nail polish you want to buy, or if you need inspiration, you can refer to the best selling list from Amazon or eBay.
However, your search results will not be vetted for reliable wholesalers, take some time to verify them before you buy (we outline how to do this below).
Go directly to the manufacturer
You can cut out the middleman and source your nail polish supplies directly from the manufacturers. This way you can be certain to get the lowest price possible. Search in your local directory or ask a business contact or friend if they can point you to the right direction.
Keep in mind that you won’t always be able to find the manufacturer easily, and working with them directly requires large orders, so you need a lot of capital for this method
Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality suppliers or getting scammed.
While there is a small fee ($67/year for SaleHoo), it's the best method for beginners. We even give you our market research tool, which shows you how often items sell and helps you find new products to add to your store!
Finding trusted suppliers
There are plenty of scammers out there looking to take your money. To avoid that, vet each supplier with the following steps before you buy:
Contact the supplier and verify their address
If the supplier doesn’t list their phone number and address on their website, keep looking. If they do, call them and Google their address to verify their identity.
Check your supplier’s reputation and track record
Try to work only with long-standing suppliers. At least 10 years in business is a good rule of thumb. It also helps to talk to their customers to get real feedback.
Purchase and inspect their products
Before committing to a supplier, make a test order. That way, you’ll get to see their product quality, care of packaging, and shipping times.
Test their customer support
If your supplier’s customer service sucks, it’s going to harm your own service for your customers. Be sure to ask them questions early to test their support.
