Australian-made Karpati nail polishes are free from toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate which is great because they’re all unnecessary and potentially harmful chemicals.

But what I would buy this polish for is the bottle design alone. It’s super functional by slipping over two fingers, eliminating the need for a surface to set the bottle on. I’ve spilled more than my share of nail polish and ruined countless things in the process and this is such a simple, effective design solution. (Although it irks me that the image has dark red being painted onto orangey-red nails, which is odd and inconsistent… is that strange?)

    That irks me, too! But, yeah, genius bottle design. I wish it came with another right hand to paint my right hand though…my left hand is not so good at painting polish!

    That's so clever! My last nail polish spill was on a hotel room comforter. Oops… But this probably could have prevented it!

    Genius! A great invention for painting nails in the car (which I don't suggest). Perhaps on the way to a wedding. Maybe because someone (err, me) forgot to do so an hour earlier.

    PS. Don't worry, I wasn't driving.

    wow, that bottle design in brilliant! that would come in so handy! (no pun intended)

    (p.s. that was the first thing i noticed – bottle colour vs. nail colour)

    What a great idea! I just made a mess of my nails–wish I could run to the corner store and pick up one of these instead!

    i, too, was super distracted by the inconsistency in colors… why? such a great product, genius design concept. let's buy things like this, so all future design will be this innovative!

    not at all strange it was the FIRST thing I noticed before reading your post about it so I'm happy to see you caught it too – but I love the bottle design idea, provided I wouldn't mess up those 2 fingers when taking it off to let my manicure dry.
