OPI Clark + Kensington Nail Color Trio for $5 this Friday at Ace Hardware

If you were as confused by the title of this post as I was when I first heard about this, allow me to explain!


First of all, thanks to reader Mercedes (@nailsbymercedes on Instagram) for this tip. Ace Hardware has a line of wall paint line called Clark + Kensington. OPI has released some of their nail color shades within the Clark + Kensington wall paint line (i.e., you can paint your walls in the shade of an OPI nail color). The OPI Color Palette by Clark + Kensington wall paints are sold exclusively at Ace Hardware stores, and Ace is also selling an OPI mini nail polish trio to go along with it. There's a deal going on this Friday that might enable you to get a $9.99 mini trio for five bucks. Sound good? Then read on for the deets!

Mercedes shared the pic above, taken from her local Ace Hardware ad for this week. As you can see, the mini trio of OPI Clark + Kensington nail colors is $9.99.

But it gets better...

Mercedes also shared the above photo taken from her region's weekly Ace Hardware ad. As you can see, there's a coupon that's good THIS FRIDAY ONLY (9/12) for 50% off one item priced at $30 or under. So you can use that coupon toward the $9.99 OPI Clark + Kensington mini trio and snag it for $5!

NOTE: Ace Hardware weekly ads vary from region to region. So I would suggest calling your local Ace Hardware and asking them if they are offering this coupon this week. Also ask if they have the coupons available in-store in case you don't have already have their weekly ad.

I realize that nail polish at a hardware store might seem a little strange to some of us, but I can personally tell you that Ace has been carrying traditionally female-oriented products for some time now, up by the registers. Mr. G loves to go to Ace, therefore I end up going to Ace more than I probably would on my own, and last year I bought a glass nail file there. Go figure!

Thanks so much, Mercedes, for sharing this deal with us!


  1. I saw these at ACE last weekend, and I actually think that the paint is based off the OPI colors. The trio had My Vampire is Buff and I cannot recall the other 2 (the blue is from the euro collection) but they were all from the regular OPI line.

    1. Yeah I understood it to be the same way. They have been advertising it on tv for a little while now that now you can paint your walls the same color as your favorite OPI nail polish :)

    2. Thank you both so much. I just updated my post above!

      Not that this is any excuse, but I was writing this post while also putting together the massive update I just did to the WnW Halloween 2014 post, and you know what happens when you try to do two things at once! lol! So thank you again for setting me straight. I REALLY appreciate it! :)

    3. The other two colors are Can't Find My Czechbook, and I Eat Mainely Lobster. I have not seen any other colors there.

  2. I seen they advertised the trio on Facebook Labor Day weekend. The $5 coupon is sweet if you can still get the trio. I'm not a fan of mini polishes but I would purchase just because lol. The polish addict in me.

  3. I knew that there was paint being made to match OPI colors, but I didn't know about the minis!! I simply must find a flyer ASAP and get myself to the ACE Hardware store! I guess "ACE really is the place"!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
