The silicone texture slips over each individual nail to protect polish, while the matte texture and slightly powdered finish helps varnish to dry without smudging. In addition, the open back design ensures you still have sensory touch whilst wearing them, meaning you can still use your smartphone and laptop - or pop on your ipod and listen to some tunes! It's such a simple idea that I don't understand how someone hasn't thought of it before; the design is patent pending in the UK, meaning this is the only place you can get your hands on a piece of beauty genius.
Each pack includes three different sized Helmies in two different colours, designed to fit every size from your pinky to your big toe. Although some of the sizes are too big for my little fingers and have a tendency to ping off if I'm not too careful, if you sit still and don't try and do too much they definitely help keep your manicure looking fab. I'd love if these came in different size options to ensure every customer gets the perfect fit, but for a first launch these are simply brilliant. They're a £7.99 answer to your manicure nightmares.
Would you be tempted to invest in some Helmies? Or do you think it's a crazy concept that won't take off?
The Helmies manicure pack is available online, priced £7.99.
