Nail Care at Home

We love the occasional indulgence of a mani-pedi at the salon, but with the shelter-in-place orders still in effect, we've had to master the art of nail care at home. We've managed to maintain an at-home nail care routine with a few simple tools and products. 

A few things you'll need:

Nail Polish in a shade of your choice

Our routine is fairly simple: start by trimming your nails and filing down any rough edges until you achieve your desired shape. Follow with a cuticle trim. At first, this part of the routine felt a little nerve-wracking, but after a bit of practice, we've nailed it(pun intended). Tip - trim your cuticles immediately after you shower or take a bath while they're soft. Last but not least, buff your nails until they are smooth and ready for polish.

For cuticle care, we love tenoverten The Rose Oil Nourishing Cuticle Oil. Also, for extra protection before applying a coat of color, we always apply The Foundation Nail Strengthening Base Coat.

We love getting playful with our nail polish colors, but we think everyone should always have these three varieties on hand: a nude, the perfect red, and a dark, moody hue. We've listed a few of our favorites below.
