SPR AY-ON POLISH
Painting your nails with a brush: boring. There’s a brandnew mani model on the scene from the U.K.’s Nails Inc.: a spray-on polish that’s as fun as it is fast. Apply the accompanying base coat, spray the polish over your fingertips, then wash your hands with soapy water. The excess will slide off skin, leaving an extra-thin coat of punchy colour.
