While I personally don’t have this issue, many of my friends have trouble doing their own manicures and pedicures. Even my mom and sister get them professionally done because after years of practice they still don’t like their own results. Nailc Inc came up with a brilliant solution that can help women save money by turning any beginner into nail polish application pro. Released earlier this year Nails Inc Paint Can [$12, available here] is a revolutionary way to apply nail polish. The whole process takes 5 minutes and the results are surprisingly good!
STEP 1 // Apply base coat – don’t skip this step! I used Nails Inc 2 in 1 Base and Top Coat to prep my nails and make the surface nice and even.
STEP 2 // Shake Nails Inc Paint Can and spray onto the nails, holding the nozzle 4-6 inches away. Make sure to cover the surface you’re spraying on to; I used the back of an old magazine.
STEP 3 // Apply top coat and allow a few minutes to dry. I used the same Nails Inc 2 in 1 Base and Top Coat, it’s so versatile!
STEP 4 // Wash away excess color from your fingers and cuticles in warm soapy water or use a wet wipe when on the go.
I thought the whole process was super fun! The polish was easy to apply and it actually covered my nails better than when I do it myself. My nails were evenly coated on all sides and from every angle, even that awkward space by the cuticle I normally leave empty out of fear that the polish will pool in. My only gripe is the longevity: my pretty silver manicure started chipping on day three, but this result is totally YMMV and depends on many factors from how you apply the polish to how often you reapply top coat.
Do you think spray-on nail polish will become a big thing like spray tan? Let me know in the comments below!
