#1 Tilt it.
The Pollgem nail polish bottle holder tilts your polish bottle at a 45-degree angle, making it easier to get at all the polish. The bottom half of the Pollgem is weighted, making tipping and spilling less likely. The “cub octahedral” (six square faces, eight triangular facets) unit can be placed in an upright position or tilted to rest on one of its facets. For more information, go to www.intromarkstore.com.
#2 Toss it.
Convenient and eco-friendly, Syndicate Nail Polish kits contain single-use polish in a small multi-chamber paint tray, along with disposable brushes. Each kit includes enough polish for one complete manicure or pedicure and four touch-ups. The quick-drying polish comes in 10 classic colors. The packages are eco-friendly, says the company, because there is no waste and the packaging is recyclable. Go to www.syndicatecosmetics.com.
#3 Invent a New Use for it.
Did you know Liquid correction fluid was invented by a secretary who poured white tempera paint into a nail polish bottle so she could brush over her mistakes? According to straightdope.com, Liquid Paper was invented by Bette Nesmith (mother of Monkee’s Mike Nesmith) in 1951 and first marketed as “Mistake Out” to other secretaries. In 1979, Nesmith sold her company to Gillette for $48 million.
