Object sharing is a widespread and ingenious concept–you can share your dog, your car, your movies and now, your nail polish. A brand new company called Lacquerous began beta testing their nail polish sharing scheme last week, with the idea that the price of designer lacquer is too high for just one person’s use.

As with sharing any personal product, there’s always the issue of hygiene. The company says they work on the honour system as far as sanitation goes but is that enough? Is designer polish worth the risk of infection? Some people would say names like Chanel and Dior definitely worth taking a chance.
