So you're out on the town with your perfect new pedi and are showing off your cute new kitten-heeled flip-flops when -- beauty crisis! -- you notice a chip in your otherwise perfect polish. And now that you've noticed it, it's glaringly obvious. And because you keep noticing it, you're just sure everyone else is staring at the one tiny imperfection.

Their Two 2 Tango Mini Nail Lacquer Kits ($14) are a mere 2 inches wide by 2 1/3 inches tall and packaged in a vintage-inspired matchbox.
