What are the features of tweexy®?
What is tweexy® made of? How big is tweexy®?
Tweexy® is made of 100% silicone rubber. Tweexy® is approximately 2.5 inches in diameter including the crown area that holds the nail polish bottle and the finger rings. It weighs less than one ounce.
How do I open my polish bottle with one hand when I have tweexy® on my opposite hand?
With tweexy® and your polish bottle on your fingers, all you need to do is press down on the bottle cap and twist the cap off. Our patented bottle gripping system grips the bottom of the bottle with dozens of little ‚tentacles‘ to help facilitate opening the bottle. If the bottle cap is stuck really tight from dried polish, you may want to loosen it a bit before placing the bottle in your tweexy®. To see how to use tweexy®, go here.
How do I get tweexy® off my hand when my nails are wet or transfer tweexy® to my other hand?
To take tweexy® off your hand when your nails are wet, all you have to do is pull it straight up from the crown, as the rings are flexible and have gaps at the bottom. Simply slide tweexy® on your other hand if the nails are dry or use the ’squeeze tabs‘ to open the rings wider if your nails are still damp, then place tweexy® directly on your fingers.
Does tweexy® fit all finger sizes and hands?
We tested tweexy® on all finger ring sizes from a size 3 up to a size 17. Tweexy® will even comfortably work with fingers that have larger ring sizes. Ring sizes smaller than size three will work as well, however you may find you need to squeeze your fingers together to keep tweexy® stable on your hand.
Can I share my tweexy® with my friend who has fingers twice as thick as mine?
Absolutely! Tweexy® is made of silicone so it retains its original shape, regardless of the size of the fingers of the previous user.
What colors does tweexy® come in?

Is tweexy® in any retail stores?
Tweexy® will be in The Container Store in the United States Christmas 2016. Tweexy® will be on the shelves of most major retailers in the United States by the Summer of 2017.
Does tweexy® hold all bottles of nail polish and gel?
Yes! All standard size and shape bottles and all branded bottles fit and are held securely by tweexy®. From the small mini collections to the larger branded bottles, they all work. The only bottle shapes we wish worked better are the large, ball-shaped bottles and a few others that sharply taper inward towards the base. But there’s an easy work around… all you have to do is flip up one or more of the ‚leaves‘ in the crown and they act like a seat belt or an an octopus arm, wrapping around and gripping the bottle securely so it won’t shimmy its way out.
One of my bottles seem to slip out of tweexy®… Is there anything I can do?
Yes, it’s simple. All you have to do is flip up one or more of the ‚leaves‘ in the crown and it acts like an octopus arm, gripping the bottle securely so it won’t shimmy its way out. See how this is done in the video below.
Do you sell tweexy® wholesale?
Tweexy® is now accepting wholesale orders for every country in the world. If you are a retailer or distributor, please contact us.
Is tweexy® available outside the USA?
How do I clean my tweexy®?
Tweexy® can be easily cleaned of gel and polish or any dirt with just warm water and soap. If you get polish on tweexy® and it dries, it can be easily scraped off (we fleck ours off with a fingernail or a teaspoon), as nail polish does not adhere well to silicone rubber.
Can I use tweexy® on my toes for a pedicure?
Whether you want to wear tweexy® on your hand or place it directly on your toes when painting your toenails, tweexy® solves the problem of having of dripping when the bottle of polish is too far from your toes. We did not specifically design it for this purpose, but go for it if it works well for you!
Will tweexy® permanently stretch if I use it with a really large bottle?
No. Tweexy® is made of silicone so it retains its original shape, regardless of the size of the bottle that was previously used.
Will tweexy® tear?
Silicone rubber is almost impossible to tear. Our testing produced no tearing even when pulled and stretched with a lot of force by strong men. Cutting tweexy® with a sharp knife, cutting it with scissors or burning it with an open flame are ways to damage tweexy. But why would you want to hurt your tweexy®?
