Dream Job Alert: Getting Paid To Test Nail Polish

Flexible hours, a competitive salary, and all the nail polish you can handle? If that sounds pretty good to you, then we've got a job for you. Nailbox, a British nail polish subscription service is looking for a nail polish tester. Your job: test and review 50 polishes and nail accessories every month. In exchange, you'll be drowning in cool nail stuff and you'll bring in around $55,000 a year.

It's not as simple as a quick manicure, of course. You'll be testing top coats, base coats, treatments, the latest nail polishes, nail files and foils. The ideal candidate is "someone who takes good care of their appearance -- and hands in particular. We need someone with genuine enthusiasm for beauty products, but also has a critical eye and is able to distinguish the better products and colors. They need to have a good idea of what's currently fashionable as well."

You've also got to be willing to refrain from doing anything that will damage your nails, like say, uh, hard physical labor or heavy household chores (Imagine explaining that: "Sorry, can't do the dishes, IT'S FOR MY JOB").

The one catch? You have to be based in the UK.
