Typically, we're not the biggest fans of anything that comes out of a vending machine—but that was before Essie launched its Color Boutiques. Following in the footsteps of Birchbox favorite Benefit, which started glamming up airport terminals with cute pink kiosks filled with their products last year, the polish company has created its own varnished version. New York's JFK and Oakland's International Airport were home to the first ones, with more to follow in airports and malls throughout the country. The machines stock 48 classic Essie shades and will rotate in six new hues per season. So the next time you're stuck waiting for a flight with nothing to do, bypass the candy and chips and skip straight to this chic mani machine instead.
