Awhile back I shared my Easy Nail Care Routine and some Must Have Products but since it’s been a little bit I wanted to share something new. While some of the products have stayed the same in my routine, I do have a few new favorites that I am adding to my list. This checklist has everything you will need for an At Home Manicure. I know for me there isn’t always time to get to a salon and I change my polish so often that I need to just be able to get it done in the comfort of my own.
ULTA Nail Buff & Shine • Ulta • $5.00 // This is one of my new favorites! This super cheap little nail buffer is a miracle worker. Equipped with two different sides you’re left with smooth and shiny natural nails ready for a coat of polish or fine on their own. I use this at least four times a week.
Tweezerman Nail Clipper Set • Tweezerman • $9.00 // This may sound weird but this is the only set of clippers I will use and even when I go to a salon for a manicure, I bring them with me. They’re super sharp and have a straight edge so if you keep your nails square this is perfect. I feel like whenever I use one with a round edge, my nails break as I cut them down.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat • Seche Vite • $7.99 // A must have in any at home manicure is going to be a top coat. This is a cult favorite. Seche Vite is seriously one of the best, I have nothing bad to say about it. It secures my polish and keeps me chip free for days!
Barielle Pro Argan Oil Nail Fortifier • Barielle • $9.99 // I LOVE Argan Oil for everything. I use this on my nails and my cuticles with or without polish. This is a daily one for me.
Barielle Professional Nail Strengthener Cream • Barielle • $9.99 // My nails tend to get a bit fragile. They peel and break so I have been loving this cream from Barielle for about 2.5 years now. It keeps my nails healthy and strong and when I use it religiously breaks and peeling are few and far between.
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser & Balm • Sally Hansen • $6.99 // My cuticles are the worst and this stuff is my jam! Sally Hansen really hit it out of the park when they made this. It’s been a staple in my at home manicures for years.
OPI Natural Nail Base Coat • OPI • $9.49 // If your nails are in pretty good shape than you can totally get away with a regular base coat.
Deborah Lippmann Ridge Filler Base • Deborah Lippmann • $20.00 // If you’re like me and have some pretty prominent ridges than going with a ridge filler is your best bet for a base coat. This is a favorite, for sure.
ASP Crystal File • ASP • $3.99 – I love, love, love crystal files! It’s all I have been using for years and it gives me sharp lines and straightens out any imperfections!
Those are my absolute must haves for an at home manicure! Do you do your own manicure at home? What are your favorite products?
