I always wear the lightest polish shades on my nails to hide the usual chips and cracking. But I plan to pump up the volume with magenta and red this summer after trying Rimmel’s new Lasting Finish Lycra Wear Nail Polish, $4.29. I love Lycra in my clothes – its stretch makes them fit better, last longer and retain shape – so I was curious about what it would do on my nails. Lycra’s unique flexibility helps the formula absorb impact and smooths the nail surface to give a high-shine finish. It lasted for a week without drying out my nails.
