Everyone has got to start somewhere right? If you’re used to getting your nails done professionally or have always kept them natural, you might not know some staple items you’re going to need in your collection. Of course these are just some products I’ve found to be helpful, you can be as creative as you want.
Start off your manicure by prepping your nails. Use a nail file to shape your nails and even the length of them out. This E.l.f set includes a regular sized file and mini one to keep with you when you’re on the go.
Another great E.l.f product is their cuticle pushers. They’re dual ended and designed to fit snugly around the nail to push back cuticles and to clean under the nails for a well manicured look.
The last step you need to do to prep before you start painting is to apply a base coat. A base coat help secures the nail polish for long lasting adhesion. While it’s not required, you’ll definitely notice a difference if you skip this step! Check out this China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat on BeautySphere.co
Now that you’re ready to paint you need some polishes. This totally depends on your style and there’s so many different colours out there to choose from. If you’re just starting your collection you’re going to want a variety of colours. The Great Outdoors Collection has a good range of darker colours while this Milani collection has some neons. Depending on what you’re into, you should be able to find something you like from one of these collections.
There are so many nail options out there you’re not going to be able to stop collecting. These glitter polishes from L.A Girl are really pretty, affordable and perfect to layer on top of any colour or on bare nails. It’s like jewellery for your nails!
Now that you’ve finished painting and designing your nail art, you have to make sure that all of that hard work isn’t going to go to waste. Use a top coat like this one from China Glaze. It ensures enhanced protection against chipping as well as gives your nails an extreme hi-gloss shine!
anddddd when it’s all done and over and it’s time to take it off, you’re going to need something to remove it with (so you can start all over again!) These pre-moistened acetone free pads from L.A Colors allow you to remove nail polish whenever and wherever you desire without the mess. The sweet fruit scent will leave your nails smelling fresh.
