If you’re like us, there’s nothing you love more than a pristine manicure. But if you’re truly like us, you’re the first to admit you’re not the most skilled at giving pristine manicures. In fact, you consider nail polish bottles your enemy. (They fall over mysteriously and polish somehow ends up on your palms—someone explain that!) So when we heard rumors over the summer that spray nail polish would soon become a thing, we waited with baited breath. And thankfully, our manicure prayers have been answered. The concept is simple: Apply your base coat, spray on color (throwing caution to the wind and actually allowing color to get places other than your nails) and then washing the color off skin with soap and water. (Color magically adheres only to the nail!) Finish with a top coat and you’re done. Five minutes tops. Brilliant. Here are three options to consider when joining the graffiti gild.

Nails Inc. Paint Can spray ($12, us.nailsinc.com)

The pioneer of the spray-on nail polish wave, Nails Inc. boasts three colors (silver, hot pink, and blush pink) and a wear time of up to four days. So what if it doesn’t last as long as a typical manicure? It take about two minutes to apply to all ten fingers. Consider us sold.
