If you’re anything like me, then you love getting a manicure. It has definitely been something that I’ve missed since my nails salon has closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before social distancing, I would get my manicure done every two weeks. However, I have been able to find at-home nail polishes to include in my self-care routine during this lockdown. I would suggest using these with your best manicure tools and soaking your nails in warm water before painting them to get the full salon effect. You can even wear a face mask and burn a candle to feel fully relaxed.
So here are six best manicures to use at home.
These nail polishes can be found at Target so they’re easily accessible. One of my favorite things about this brand is the trendy colors that are available such as ‘wicked’ (purple), ‘limited addiction’ (red), and ‘set in stones’ (silver glitter). They even have a salon gel polish line to get that gel polish salon look at home.
Kiss Salon acrylics
These can be found at Walmart and Target as well as drug stores such as Walgreens and CVS. Honestly, I miss the acrylics that I usually get at the salon. However, this is the best at-home acrylic brand that I have found. They come in all different kinds of designs and lengths such as medium French, large back it up (jade green), and small aim high (black). They also often stay on your nails for about a week or two depending on how rough you are with your hands.
If you are looking for affordability, then this is the brand for you. They can be found on Amazon as well as Target and Walmart. This is also one of the cheapest brands and some of their color highlights include Lava Rocks (grey), Coral Calm (pink), and White Tea (off-white).
If you really want to go all out and feel truly fancy, you can buy designer nail polish. Chanel can be purchased for around $28 on their website. Some of the most popular colors are ‘radiant blue’ (blue with sparkles), ‘ballerina’ (light pink), and ‘bleu pastel’ (light blue).
Red Carpet Manicure
This nail dip powder can be found at Ulta stores. If you are missing the feeling of having dip powder nails from the salon, then that’s definitely the brand for you. They come in colors such as purple and coral pink.
OPI nail polish
Another affordable nail polish brand that can be found at Walmart is OPI. These nail polishes come in colors such as ‘my solar clock is ticking’ (red) and ‘strawberry margarita’ (pink).
There are many great brands out there that can help you get the salon feel and look at home. This is also an awesome way to celebrate National Manicure Day while still social distancing. Whatever brand and color you choose, I hope you end up feeling relaxed and pampered!
