It's a manicure, but not as you know it: Spray on nail colour is here

NAILS INC_AW_SPRAYCAN_ Hand Shot.jpg

Prepare to be blown away - by a manicure in a can.

Fiddly brushes, painstaking application and inevitable gloopy smudges are banished by Nails Inc's new invention - a nail paint spray that blasts colour onto the surface of nails in a matter of seconds and dries instantly.

Excess colour that catches on the hands is then washed away with soap and water.

If it's good enough for Alexa...

The catch? You have to apply a base coat in the traditional manner first. But supposedly we should be doing that anyway.

Nails Inc's Paint Can is launching in two stand-out shades, Shoreditch Lane Silver Foil and Hoxton Square Hot Neon Pink, and is available from Thursday 12 November, priced at £10.
