At this point I should know better than to get my nails done, because every single time I leave the salon with a fresh manicure, it’s inevitably ruined by the time I get home. There are just way too many variables that contribute to their destruction — basic human functions like using keys, texting, handling money, eating snacks, and going shopping immediately post-polish can all result in a less-than-perfect paint job. It’s just one of those ridiculous first world problems that really isn’t a big deal, but it can totally feel like one at the time, especially when you’ve just forked over $13 for the service (and maybe an extra dollar for quick-dry).

At long last, a company called Nails In Motion picked up on the problem and created these fingernail covers to defend your freshly lacquered fingertips against nicks and smudges. I doubt I’ll actually invest in a set (I mean, for their $24.99 price tag I could get one and a half manicures, and they’d be rendered frustratingly useless should you forget them in your car or buried at the bottom of your purse), but there’s a strange comfort in just knowing that they exist.

One of the saddest parts of being an adult is the lack of opportunities to use crayons, which is why I’m so stoked about this pack of Crayola nail polish, which includes eight shimmery colors in miniature bottles. It would be such a fun addition to a very grown-up cosmetics collection. Now I just need to learn how to color inside the lines. [$12, Fred Flare]

The 15 Best Nail Art Blogs

One of the best things about being online editors is that we get to spend hours perusing the web for inspiration (even though this may not be best for our eyesight or posture). Nonetheless, there are tons of budding makeup, hair and skincare ”experts” sharing their straightforward reviews and in-your-face tutorials. Impressed by their serious skills and online superstardom, we’ve decided to round up the best beauty blogs.

This week, we’re kicking things off with the crème de la crème in DIY nail art. From Miss Ladyfinger (who can transform any runway design to her digits) to London’s WAH Nails (famous for their mani mash-ups), you’ll get motivated to switch up your average manicure.

Chart: Things That Actually Remove Your Nail Polish

Winona and I agree: Nail polish remover isn’t always the best at, you know, actually removing nail polish. Instead, we’ve found that your average quotidian activities like oh, typing, sleeping and zipping up zippers will do the job for you just fine. Even and especially after you’ve just gotten your nails did. So we present, activities that will chip and scrape your polish off versus actual nail polish remover.
