A Helping Hand

…with nail polish, creams and rings you can get passionate about

WATCHING PAINT DRY: Ah, there’s nothing like a finely manicured hand. But, the truth is, nail polish stinks and chips. And let’s not even get started on polish remover’s abrasive odor. Thankfully, all the drama of nail polish can finally be a thing of the past, courtesy of Sula Paint & Peel. The collection is a water-based formula that peels off in one clean sweep, so you can say so long to polish remover stink bombs. Plus, it’s formaldehyde, toluene and phthalates-free. It’s good enough, smart enough and doggone it, we like it. $9, Sula

PUT A RING ON IT: Now that your nails are in proper shape, it’s time to address those fingers. And by address, we mean doll them up. Meet the new and improved cocktail ring for fall, or as we like to call it, your secret accessory weapon. Lagos passion rings add a little flavor to your fingers with faceted gemstones, like smokey quartz, blue topaz or amethyst, surrounded by 18 karat gold beading on a sterling silver band. It’s classic oh-la-la with a modern twist. $795, Lagos

A KISS ON THE HAND: Have dry, cracked hands? Yeah, that’s not cute. You’re going to want to do something about that. MySkinAffair.com suggests Jurlique Rose Hand Cream. Not only is the rose scent enticing, the actual formula itself will do a number on your scaly skin with natural ingredients. Apply a little every day and it’s after while, crocodile. $25, Jurlique
