Finally cool nail art that will work for the impatient and manicure skill challenged. Sally Hansen’s Magnetic Nail Color doesn’t require any design work at all. And it’s actually easier to use than stickers since you just brush the polish on. When you hover the magnet (included) over your polished nail, you get a really cool wavy pattern.
Tip: Put a very thin coat on first, then the 2nd coat has to be thick as the directions specify. If you don’t, the magnetic pattern won’t be as pronounced or won’t turn up at all.

Essie is known for high quality nail polish. This week, we are giving away two bottles – Mademoiselle and Ballet Slippers. To enter to win these great pink shades just comment below with your best nail tip. Here’s ours:
If your nails are brittle then be sure to file them in one direction. Thin or brittle nails don’t do very well with the back and forth motion of filing (which weakens nails further).
One winner will be chosen by 12/28/2011 and notified by email 1/04/2012. U.S. residents only. Odds of winning are 1 out of number of comments on this blog post.

When we tried wet n wild’s megalast nail color, we expected a day or two of wear before chipping given the $1.99 price tag. However, this is literally the longest lasting nail polish that we’ve tried to date (including higher end brands such as O.P.I.). We went to wet n wild’s website and saw that their megalast nail color contains a polymer system that helps the polish to adhere to your nails. And as a nice touch, the polish is calcium and mineral fortified to prevent nail discoloration. This was especially useful since the shade we tried, Red Tape, was a very vibrant red. Another bonus is that this polish is toulene, phthalate, and formaldehyde free. We’re really impressed by the quality of megalast nail color, and at $1.99 we can certainly afford to get even more colors!
