Best Bet: Illamasqua Rubber Brights Nail Varnish

By

These days, simple, pretty nails just don't cut it anymore. Nail companies are pumping out polishes with textures that mimic all sorts of other materials: snakeskin! velvet! feathers! The newest entry is by Illamasqua, who've concocted a formula that dries into a matte, rubberlike finish (kind of like the dominatrix boots they were supposedly inspired by). Available in six electric colors, they're long-lasting and chip-resistant — and could probably also be used to re-caulk your tub.
