Here's Everything You Need for a Luxe At-Home Manicure

Arm yourself with the best nail tools and supplies so that you can #treatyoself this year.

Back in the day, going to the salon to get a manicure was a total treat, something I looked forward to and considered the ultimate way to pamper myself. But today? Well, getting my nails done has become something of a chore. There’s usually a wait, I have trouble sitting still, and I’ve smudged or chipped a nail before I’ve even pulled out of the parking lot. Also, now I have kids, so I am usually paying someone to watch them…while I get a manicure. Which is hard to justify, as I’m sure y’all can relate.

So, who’s with me when I say that it’s time for the at-home manicure to make a comeback? Gone is the stress of getting to the salon only to have 15 people waiting in front of you. And in return you can paint your nails from your own couch or kitchen table while watching Real Housewives and drinking a glass of wine. Now that sounds relaxing. I’m not the best manicurist in town, but as the old adage goes, practice makes perfect. To get us all ready for this DIY approach to nails, I’ve rounded up the best products and tools available so that you can have an arsenal of luxe supplies at your, um, fingertips.
