I think I am pretty sure in saying that one of the things that we hate most about painting our nails is that we always somehow manage to end up with polish all over our skin instead of just on our nails. Normally this isn't too much of a problem for me as I usually paint my nails at night and then wash off the excess in the shower in the morning, but recently I have definitely been getting lazy and leaving it until the next morning, ending up in a rush and getting annoyed that they aren't going right.
Well hopefully that will now become a thing of the past as I have been given an opportunity to try a Handirest*.
Handirest can be used for applying fake nails, painting your own nails, nail art and wraps, It is designed to keep your fingers secure, separated and stable. The base is made of foam which has shaped recesses for your fingers. What is great about this product is that it is designed for use on both hands so you only need to purchase one. I also love the hot pink colour!
The bottom of the Handirest is non slip so you can place it on a surface such as your dressing table or in my case my glass coffee table (whilst watching tv) and know that it isn't going to slide around everywhere.
It's also really easy to keep clean as you can use nail varnish remover on it to remove any excess.
The design is simple, but very effective and definitely a lot more comfortable that resting my hand at an awkward angle on a table. I would definitely recommend this if you have problems keeping your hands steady whilst painting your nails.
The Handirest is available to purchase at Amazon for £9.99. It would make a great stocking filler for a beauty lover this Christmas.
