I've Switched to Aerosol Nail Polish Remover, and I'm Never Going Back

I, like many of you, would prefer to get my nails done professionally 10 out of 10 times. That’s unfortunately not always a possibility, which is why I’ve built an at-home manicure kit to give me the closest thing I can get to salon-fresh nails. One of the most important products is nail polish remover.

I’ll be honest: I truly have always had a hate/hate relationship with polish removers. I find many of them irritate the skin around my nails or severely dry out the skin on my fingers, from even the smallest contact. Not to mention, I have spilled polish remover on so many of my own surfaces . . . and others’ (sorry, Mom/Dad – I still can’t afford to buy you a new dining table).

Recently, however, I discovered Spray Away . It’s an aerosol nail polish remover, which may sound like a disaster, but after testing it, I can confirm it’s amazing! It’s 100 percent spill-proof and didn’t dry out my skin, and I didn’t have to go through 100 cotton balls trying to remove dark nail polish. Check out the pictures of my at-home test and see for yourself.

You Can Now Get a Free Cote Nail Polish When You Buy Everlane Sandals

I will use any excuse I can to go shopping – especially when it comes to shoes. When I heard about this Everlane x Cote Nail Polish collaboration, I knew I had to snag a pair (and share the deal with friends and family, aka you guys!). Right now, when you buy a pair of Everlane’s new Form Sandals in Cross-Over or Slides ($118), you also receive a complimentary, complementary color of Cote Nail Polish (the polishes are normally $18).

The shoes are that cozy-chic pair you can rock from poolside to the bar (without looking like you’re in beach flip-flops). It features a buttery Italian leather and pre-formed fit sole. This comfy shoe is offered in black, pale rose, wine, and navy.

Here’s where Cote comes in: the non-toxic nail polish brand selected four bestselling shades to match those sandal hues, so your pedi will look on point. The lacquers available are No. 16 (a perky bubblegum pink), No. 50 (a universally flattering tomato red), No. 57 (a sunny sunflower yellow), and No. 71 (a cheery sky blue). So, for example, Nos. 16 or 57 pair lovely with the wine-colored sandals, while No. 50 looks lovely with the rose ones, and No. 71 is pretty against the navy.

Also note that while you can choose your sandal shade, the polish colors are selected at random. So you get what you get, and you don’t get upset! That said, like wine and cheese, it’s hard to pair these wrong.

My advice: get your credit card ready if you want in – this deal is only available to first 1,000 shoppers. Good luck!

15 Millennial Pink Nail Polish Options to Consider This Spring

Gone are the days when pink was viewed as a cheesy color reserved for little girls. As it turns out, adult women are swooning over a very specific shade of the cheerful hue right now – “millennial pink” – and marketers have taken note. Think about the color of that bubblegum you popped for hours on end as a child and then add a dose of coral. That’s the best way to describe this popular hue.

We’re thrilled that the sophisticated peachy-blush tone has cropped up in the beauty world , especially in one of our favorite product categories: nail polish. According to Essie celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders , it’s no surprise millennial pink is hot right now.

“We first saw ‘millennial pink’ walk down the runway at the F/W 2016 Alexander Wang NYFW show,” Saunders told POPSUGAR. “It was the first time the designer deviated from his go-to sandy matte beige nail. That’s when I knew it was here to stay . . . and that Fiji by Essie would sell out that season.”

Millennial pink is special because it complements a variety of complexions. “Our eye is naturally attracted to pink, because it’s a color that feels modern and feminine,” Saunders adds. “It’s soft but powerful. Millennial pink is flattering on all skin tones, because it’s a mix of red and white. Depending on the depth and tone of pink, the variation looks good on everyone.”
