Getting my nails done is something I love. 1-2 hours no distractions just pure relaxation with a nice shiny new set at the end. I will be honest I have been a love of acrylic nails ever since I can remember, however, recently I have been introduced to CJP nails which are meant to leave your nails super strong after a set of acrylic like nails. They are just as strong and by god I was impressed. Having taken my last set of CJP off it’s like I never had any on. My nails are in such good condition and so long! After taking a set off I love to just have normal paint on my nails though as they seem so bare.
Tweexy is a company that offer a wearable nail polish and varnish holder. If you are like me and extremely ‘cack handed’ when you paint your nails then seriously carry on reading. I always get it round my nails and the bottle ends up tipping over, not quite the relaxation time right? Recently I discovered kind of liquid latex that you paint around your nails and then it peels off when you’re done. This prevents any varnish getting on your skin. So there is problem one solved. You can get it anywhere, ebay, amazon. Here is one example. Although I am sure that PVA glue would do the same trick. We all remember those bored art lessons …paint it on, peel it off, so satisfying!
To solve the second problem was a little more tricky. You can’t have the pot too high up, like on a shelf, as you have to keep dipping the brush back in it. You can put it on a hard surface but it is still a pain. I haven’t quite mastered the art of holding the pot like nail techs do without spilling it if I am honest. That was when I was sent a link to this glorious product.
The Tweexy is a wearable nail polish holder that grips pretty much any size bottle and saves the need for a surface. Meaning you can do your nails literally anywhere. The tweexy has two finger holds that grip around your finger to firmly hold a bottle in place. The flaps can be used to hold the bottle in more securely by lifting 1 or 2 up to hold or you can have all pushed in.
I think the tweexy works really well for someone like me who isn’t exactly the best in doing nails. It is comfy and really easy to use. It does hold it quite securely but I wouldn’t go throwing your hand around the room with it on and a pot in place. The cheaper chinese versions of the Tweexy are definitely not as sturdy or comfortable. Not only that but Tweexy guarantee the product for 10 years.
They are available in lots of different colours but this black glittery one (Stargaze) really caught my eye, it’s so pretty and sparkly.
One other item that tops off doing your nails is a toe separator. They are slightly annoying and uncomfortable depending on the shape, size and width of each of your toes. Dip Into Pretty have designed individual nail spacers that are so pretty. Comfortable and sparkly. What more could you want.
I think the Tweexy is an amazing idea that actually works! I use it every time I paint my nails now and can’t remember a time with out it.
