Design Within Reach: Nail Stickers
Do-it-yourself manicure art.

New nail stickers made with fine layers of real polish and a film of flexible adhesive let you doll up your fingertips in minutes—with no dry time. (I did this manicure at my desk without attracting undue attention. Which is to's an easy process.) My three favorites: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips (shown here, $10; drugstores), Sephora Collection Nail Patch Art ($12;, and Kiss Nail Dress Fashion Strips ($8; drugstores). Each kit includes either 16 or 28 nail polish strips—the Sally Hansen and Kiss sets also contain a mini nail file—and all work the same way. —Alessandra Foresto
