I got quite excited when I went for my Shellac manicure last week to discover the Hands Down Ultra (apparently known on the side as Pants Down Ultra) cotton wool thingies. Basically, they are for technicians who don’t want to ruin their own manicure by getting polish remover or serum all over their own nails when doing a manicure or pedi on a client. Hence the plastic backing that you can grip that protects your nails.

Not being a person of order, I can’t count the number of times I’ve attempted a pedicure or just a toe polish and then had to redo a pristine manicure. I nabbed a few to add to my ‘geeky things’ collection.
