This is where you'll find your holy grail—the best nail formula, super-moisturizing cuticle cream, mess-free polish remover, and more.
Essie For the Twill of It collection
"Rich and seasonless, with a subtle shimmer," says celebrity manicurist Elisha Wishan.
Nail a DIY mani
The best technique: Apply a base coat, two thin coats of color and a topcoat. Be sure to give nails a minute to dry between each step.
Sally Hansen Triple Shine nail color
It's designed to protect against daily wear and tear, and it does, Blitzer confirms: "The glassy finish still looked fresh after five days of clickety-clacking on my keyboard."
Deborah Lippmann The Cure
This shea butter-infused cream rescues roughed-up cuticles. You can apply it throughout the day, without getting your fingers or smartphone greasy.
Butter London scrubbers
One wipe removes polish from all 10 fingertips with no mess. And it cleanses the nail bed, so your next coat of polish lasts longer, Wishan says.
Kiss Strengthening Complete Manicure System
The three-step kit nourishes nails that are prone to breaking and peeling. "Nails look and feel healthier after a week," Wishan notes.
