If you spend your evenings pouring glasses of Prosecco and cozying up in water fizzing with bath bombs, then this new beauty trend might be right up your alley: There are now manicure bath bombs just for your nails. The winter time is rough for all things concerning beauty — from chapped lips to dry hat hair, it seems like almost every inch of us gets flaky and cracked, especially our hands. From shoving them into mittens and coat pockets, it seems like it's incredibly hard to keep the dryness at bay.
Enter these manicure bath bombs. If you're in the habit of turning your kitchen into a spa from time to time and painting your nails at the table, then you'll love this beauty product. It has the same idea of a regular bath bomb, just instead of soaking your whole body in those oils and butters, you only hydrate your finger tips. "Just like their larger bath-sized counterparts, manicure bombs are loaded with essential oils, rich moisturizing ingredients, and drool-worthy aromas. However, instead of popping them in the tub, you toss them in a bowl full of water, creating a hand soak with some fun fizzing action," PopSugar reports.
Whether you want to treat yourself or make it part of your weekly beauty regimen, here are some fun ones to test drive:
