Tip 4: Get clever with the favorites you can't leave behind When it comes to items like perfume and nail polish, you're better off keeping glass out of your suitcase. If you're determined to bring your favorite fragrance, don't even try pouring it into a plastic bottle. Instead, go to a department store or Sephora and ask for a sample size of your scent. Most perfumes come in sample sizes and you can just ask the sales clerk for two.
As for nail polish, bring one bottle of the color that's on your nails when you leave and carry it on the flight instead of packing in your suitcase. You could also instead try nail polish strips like Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips, $12.99 that have no glass bottle and last up to two weeks.
