Best for: a quick coat of colour
The Nails Inc Paint Can is the solution for those on the go - pop on the base coat, lay down an old towel (or go outside), hold the can about 10 cm away, and spray. It doesn’t matter if you’re not precise with your application; simply apply a topcoat over your nails and wash away excess colour on your skin with warm water.
Best for: filing nails
“The OPI Crystal File keeps the splitting at bay, and doesn't take a lot of effort. Love, love, love it!” - Christine, REVIEWcrew member. (We’d have to agree with you on that one Christine!)
Best for: collectors
Available in eight shades, Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Nail Polishes are a nod to the best-selling fragrance Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire... and guess what? They smell sweetly floral and fruity, too.
Best for: time-saving
For those running short on time, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is a great solution as it contains a base coat, growth treatment, top coat and colour in one. Plus, it’s also infused with a special keratin complex that promotes nail growth and strength.
Best for: brittle nails
Revitanail Ultra Hydrating Serum is infused with vitamin E and jojoba oil, and can help repair flaking or splitting nails.
Best for: beginners
These Glam by Manicare x We Are Handsome Nail Sets in Territory are the ideal solution for those who don’t have a steady hand. Simply stick them over your own clean and dry nails, and voila - you’re good to go.
