Most of us lack the time to do our nails on a regular basis, which means we either leave them bare or pay someone else good money to do them. If you’re someone who feels her look is incomplete without a good manicure, you might find that the latter will burn a hole in your bank account.
A DIY manicure or pedicure can be a great “me-time” way to recharge, relieve stress and feel better about yourself. Taking an hour to do your nails can seem a bit much when you’ve barely got four hours to relax at the end of the day, but it’s well worth the time if you can spare it. Of course, not everyone has the patience to find such an effort relaxing, so if you prefer to get someone else to do your nails while remaining in the comfort of your own home, consider hopping on the Vanitee app and booking a manicurist!
For anyone else looking to perfect their own manicures, here are the tools you’re going to need.
- Nail polish remover
- Nail clippers
- A nail file
- A nail buffer
- An orange stick
- Cuticle oil
- A bowl of warm water
- A nail brush (to clean off dirt)
- Your nail polish (base, colour, and top coat)
- A fine detailing brush or corrector pen
