Tweexy was the first “Faux Product Review” I had not tried (Read: Faux Product Review 11: Tweexy). First and foremost, I’m hating because I wish I would’ve thought of it first. If not thought of it, possibly invest in it. I got $5 on it (Luniz reference and don’t Google it). Description:
The Original Wearable Nail Polish Bottle Holder. Your polish bottle is inserted into a bowl-shaped receptacle (‘the crown’). The crown fits all bottles, regardless of their size or shape and holds it securely. There’s a gripping feature at the bottom of the crown so your bottle will hold tightly. Open your polish with one hand simply by applying downward pressure on the bottle while twisting the cap. Tweexy has two rubber wings built into the form (we call them ‘squeeze-tabs’) that pull open the finger rings. We did this so you can move it from hand to hand with wet nails.
Against my better judgement, I ordered it and in pink (duh, don’t you know the title of this blog). Packaging (OK), Tweexy (ugly in person) but does it work? Let me paint a picture for you: I sit on the carpet of my living room, my back is pressed against the wall and I lift my knees up, bend over and polish my toenails. I’ve been polishing my nails like this for years. It’s a bit acrobatic but it works for me. I put Tweexy on my left hand, insert the nail polish bottle, place my hands on my thighs then proceed to polish my fingernails. My thoughts:
“This bottle feels too heavy for this contraption.”
“OMG, the nail polish is going to spill out.”
I pulled it off and continued polishing my nails as usual. I do want to point out that I may have been unsuccessful because I didn’t have my hands lying flat. As previously stated, I polish my nails on my thighs, at a slant. I will try again at a desk or table. That way, I won’t feel like the nail polish will flip out; thereby, ruining the carpet and me not receiving my rent deposit back. I wants my money.
