Manicure saviours: Best new products to try

In dire need of a nail touch up but can’t take time out of your day for a manicure? Worry not, we’ve rounded up some of the best new products that will get your nails looking salon perfect in seconds.

First up, Ciate’s Mani Marker pen is an innovative new product which is garnering lots of buzz in the beauty world. Available in a variety of on-trend colours including Lady Luck, a cherry red, and Vintage Vamp, a dark burgundy, all you have to do is shake the pen and push the nib down on to the nail to release the polish. Gently apply one coat to bare nails before finishing the manicure with a glossy topcoat once dry. Too easy!

Another trend for time poor fashionistas has to be the launch of spray-on lacquers. Nails Inc. launched their Paint Can in three colours much to the excitement of manicure junkies recently. But other top brands have also jumped on board the concept, offering up some cool new colour options.

For instance, China Glaze Coloured Nail Spray is available in metallic magenta, purple, platinum and spray options, while Milk Makeup Spray Nail Polish comes in a bronze, silver and a shifting iridescent hue. The latter is also packaged with matching stencils, so that you can create nail art designs with the press of a button.

Meanwhile, a favourite on-the-go quick fix saviour has to be Nails Inc.’s SOS pen. Clean up and correct any manicure mishaps by running the nail polish remover pen over any excess polish, or use the handy file for a quick fix and prepare your cuticles with the cuticle pusher.

And catching the attention of fashion fans everywhere is the launch of the Sally Hansen Mani Match App. This free app takes the guesswork out of whether or not you're going to like the nail polish you're about to buy. All you do is download the app, scan your hand to try on different shades, and then share or purchase your choice.
