Here's some more nail news from across the pond. The UK's famous nail salon chain, Nails Inc., has come up with a solution to the typical one-week manicure. They call it Everlasting Polish. It is a gel-based formula that comes in what looks like a lip gloss or cream eye shadow pot, and it's applied with a little brush.

The manicure lasts anywhere from three to four weeks without any chipping or peeling, and the application process takes about an hour from start to finish. The manicure costs around $100–$125—a hefty fee, but it isn't completely terrible considering you get four weeks worth of manicures out of it. However, be warned that you have to have it professionally soaked off for it to be fully removed and it will cost you an additional $30–$50. The process is as follows:


  • STEP 1: A base coat is applied to the nails as usual.
  • STEP 2: Two coats of everlasting polish are applied to the nails/toes.
  • STEP 3: A top top coat is applied and then your hands and feet are placed under a painless UV light for two minutes until the polish coats are dry. The result is super shiny and smooth nails.
  • Isn't the name cute? It reminds me of something that Willy Wonka would have invented for beauty junkies!
