Do you ever accidentally stay up way too late on weeknights watching infomercials, and see ads for products that are so clever and yet so obvious, you wish you would have been the one to invent them? Well, if you’ve never experienced that, you’re about to: The Tweexy is here, and it’s going to rock your world.

Fans of at-home manicures will understand the struggle of trying to get comfortable while painting your nails. I personally paint mine at my kitchen table, only to then very carefully move myself over to my couch or bed for the drying process, fearing for the safety of both my wet nails and upholstery all the while. The Tweexy is the genius solution to that problem:

That’s right: it’s a ring that holds your nail polish bottle snugly on your hand so you don’t have to worry about balancing it on your knee. Here’s how it works: simply slip it on to your hand using the two finger holes that stretch to fit hands of all sizes (make sure it’s on the hand whose nails you’re polishing), pop the bottle in the holder on the top of the ring, and paint away! When you want to switch hands, there are little tabs on the size that you can squeeze to open the finger holes so that you don’t smudge your polish. It’s really that easy. In the words of Bruno Mars, don’t believe me? Just watch:

Honestly, after seeing this, I don’t even care what happens for the rest of the day.

The Tweexy is the brainchild of two people identified on the product’s website simply as Liz and Mark. After talking to hundreds of frequent nail polish users and identifying the most common problems they had with at-home manicures, the Tweexy was born. Of course, the process was much more extensive than that, and you can read all about it here, but I think we can all agree that we own Liz and Mark a great debt of gratitude, no?

The Tweexy comes in three adorable colors, and is available for purchase now. At $14.95 per Tweexy, it might be more expensive that going for a professional manicure in some places, but then again, you’re investing in your future, so really, it’s priceless.
