SHAPE magazine names the 30 products that have changed our looks — and our lives — over the past three decades. Out of the bunch, two are nail polishes!
1984: Essie Nail Polish in Ballet Slippers. This always-elegant lacquer is a go-to for women everywhere. Even Queen Elizabeth gives the sheet pink shade a royal thumbs-up.
1999: OPI Nail Lacquer in I'm Not Really a Waitress. The cherry-red polish with a clever name boasts mini flecks of mica that reflect light, bestowing a flattering cast on nearly all skin tones.
