nail breakthroughsWhether it’s going to a salon for a Gelish mani or creating that perfect French manicure at home – we bring you nail product breakthroughs we think you should know about.

How many times do you paint your nails, but actually land up painting your whole finger? Well not any more, with Sally Hansen No Mistakes, R62.95 to your rescue. This pen format instantly erases nail colour mistakes with just one stroke. It will remove smudges and bumps, and it won’t ruin your whole nail.

Are you sick of waiting for your nails to dry and are you bored with plain nail polish? Then Incoco nail polish strips are your answer. Incoco nail polish strips, R130, provide a perfect manicure in minutes. The strips are made of real nail polish, and each strip includes a base coat, colour, and top coat. They are so easy to apply, you’ll want to say goodbye to liquid nail polish!

Spice up your nail designs with crackle polish. Choose any colour you like, layer with the crackle polish in another colour and watch your nails ‘crack’. Go big and bold with Inglot Crazy Nails, R119.00.

Ever wanted to create that perfect French Manicure on your nails at home? Sally Hansen French Manicure white tip pen, R89.95 will do the trick. It is so easy to apply, and with just one stroke you will have a flawless white French tip.

nail breakthroughsIf you are in the mood for being creative with your nails, then you will love this nifty product. Kiss Nail Artist Paint and Stencil Kit, R11.95 allows you to create different designs on your nails. With up to 30 different stencil designs, you will be kept busy for hours.

Inglot Cosmetics has come out with a breathable nail polish. This product increases the oxygen permeability of the varnish films, it improves the permeability to water vapour, helps to facilitate the varnish spreading and reduces the film tightness. Over all this allows for longer lasting manicures and healthier nails. Inglot O2M Nail Enamel R149.

If you find that a manicure doesn’t last on your nails, you should try going for a semi-permanent option such as a gel polish. This type of manicure is applied like a normal polish but is then cured under an LED light. Your nails will be instantly dry and should last up to two weeks. No Chips, just high shine! Try Gelish or Shellac. The price depends on the make and the salon.

If you do love the good old nail polish, but can’t stand waiting for it to dry, try Yardley Speed Finish nail drying spray, 90ml, R26.95. Not only does it speed up the drying process, it adds shine and nourishes your cuticle.
