Never smudge a nail again!

Helmies

How often do you spend ages painting your nails, or leave the salon with a perfect mani, only to smudge a nail ten minutes later? Did you know that nail polish is “dent-able” for up to an hour after your top coat is applied?

Finally, a company called “Helmies” has come up with a solution that they believe can save your nails from the dreaded smudge. They’ve created “nail helmets” or “helmies,” which are silicone gel helmets you wear on your fingertips while you wait for your polish to dry. As soon as your nails are touch dry (about 12 to 15 minutes after you apply your top coat), you simply slip them on go on with your day.

They’re open on the underside so that you can use your phone (how clever!?) and because they’re so light and fit securely, you can go about your day normally. Plus, they’re reusable!

Only downside – they’re not available in SA… yet. Let’s hope they make it so our shores ASAP!

  1. They look ridiculous but I can appreciate the function of the product. Would be a great gift for women who do their nails frequently.

  2. Wow, that is amazing! Smudging is one of the reasons I hate using nail polish.
