Nails-Inc-Trafalgar-Square-Magnetic-Polish.jpgWe’re fairly obsessed with nails. Color, art, intricate designs … the cooler and more out there, the better. But, unfortunately, we can’t ever do the fun stuff ourselves. Well, until Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish came along, that is.

This nail polish is seriously the coolest polish we’ve ever come across. You paint it on exactly like normal polish—and then the real fun begins. On top of the cap is a magnet. Flip the cap over, loop the hook over your cuticle and hold the magnet over your nail for about three seconds. (Be careful not to touch your nail.)

Once the magnet is pulled away from the polish, voila! A fun, swirly design that took exactly three seconds and no effort to create, and it’s completely compliment-worthy. Plus, the polish lasts for up to a week with minimal to no chipping!

(We’re wearing Trafalgar Square above, and this chrome hue is so stunning we couldn’t help but stare at our nails for hours on end!)

Cute-Nail-Files.jpgIf we had a choice, we would honestly never file our nails. The sound and feel of it is akin to nails on a chalkboard … and, honestly, the two aren’t so far removed from one another. But if we have to keep our nails looking groomed and gorgeous, the least we could ask for is an adorable nail file! We’ve rounded up the three cutest nail files we’ve ever seen for your viewing (and purchasing!) pleasure. Now there’s no excuse not to sport a perfect 10!

And remember that you should always file nails in one direction, rather than going back and forth—this will keep nails from splitting and becoming unhealthy.

Not only does this file sparkle and glimmer like none we’ve ever seen, but it comes with matching nail stickers so your tips will be super glam!

essie-matte-about-you.jpgI’m a sucker for great nail colors, but sometimes that perfect shade needs a little tweak. I’m notorious for layering colors to create my own and then I found Essie’s Matte About You. This brilliant top coat takes any nail color you’ve got and transforms it to a smooth matte finish without thinning color. I have a shiny metallic silver nail polish (Essie’s Steel-ing the Scene) that I love to put this over to remove the shine and make a wonderful flat grey.

You can find Essie’s Matte About You Topcoat at for $8.

Essie-Lapis-Of-Luxury.jpgThe hot new nail polish shade around town—or maybe we should say the coolest? It’s most definitely Essie Lapis of Luxury.

As one might expect from the name, it’s a gorgeous shade of lapis blue. The color is rich and dark with even just one coat, though two bring it to a whole new level of amazing. The polish itself glides on with absolutely no trouble and is super, super glossy.

We’re currently rocking it on our toes and haven’t stopped getting compliments for days!
