Another of my tedious New Year’s Resolutions was to be more groomed, but having neat hands has, so far, failed me. I loathe getting manicures, although I do recognise that they are a necessary evil on the grooming front, because the poking & the filing & the not being able to use your hands for an hour or so drives me potty.
I’m also properly terrible at doing my nails myself, due to lack of co-ordination, and the fact that I am the least detail orientated person I know. This means I am a big fan of the new breed of nail corrector pens that mean when I balls up yet again, and end up with polish all over my cuticles, I can swipe off the excess in one neat go.
This Nails Inc one is particularly genius as it includes spare nibs so it lasts longer.
The matching Express Nail Polish Remover is also rather good. It’s simply a pot containing a sponge soaked in remover, and I like that you can put it in your bag as you rush out the door with chipped nails, and just quickly whip off the offending skanky peeling varnish in seconds as you sit at the back of the bus moaning to yourself.
