Who needs lacquer? Neaten nails with juicy "finger food" instead.

What You Need
5 grapes (red ones are packed with more antioxidants than green)
1 tablespoon sugar

1. Slice grapes in half widthwise.

2. Dip the fleshy side into the sugar and use it to massage the skin around each nail (one halved grape per finger) for about 30 seconds each.

3. Brush away excess sugar with a soft towel and rub a dot of grapeseed oil or hand cream onto hands and cuticles.

Beauty Benefit
"The sugar crystals remove dead skin and hangnails, and the gentle fruit acids help exfoliate remaining raggedness," says Regine Berthelot, head aesthetician at New York City's Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa, where signature manicures begin with this treatment. In addition, the oil and cream offer the instant shine of a top coat.
