I am a firm believer in a professional manicure. My man hands look dang good after a gel polish manicure. I do own a small nail kit of my own though. There are a few items professionals use that are worth having at home.
As with many beauty items, professional products and tools just get the job done best. You may not even realize you aren't using the right tool for the job. I've made it a little easier for you! You can pick up all of these manicure supplies at Sally Beauty (or Amazon).
Cuticle pusher: This tool is life changing. I kid you not. If your cuticles are like mine, they get dry and out of hand. I like to put on a small dot of cuticle remover, rub it in, and then push my cuticles back with this tool. It works very well.
Cuticle trimmer: This tool just works better than the stick one that shaves the cuticle off. It is sharper and stronger. I trim my cuticles once a month.
Polish remover: A few months ago I was giving my grandma a pedicure for Christmas, and I was using my moms polish remover. She had purchased it at Walmart. It literally felt like it took me an hour just to get her polish off. When I whipped out my remover, the polish came off in seconds. If you are as impatient as me, its worth having the good stuff around!
A nice file: I go CRAZY when I snag a nail. I like to have a file with me at all times. I hoard them. One in the car, diaper bag, night stand, bathroom. I love them. This file is my favorite and works well. It holds up too.
Buffer: My nails have ridges. They just need a good buffing every few weeks.
For me, these items are essential to have around so I don't go batty! Each item can be bought at Sally Beauty, and the cost is cheaper than you'd think. I've included a few links to Amazon as well.
Every girl deserves to have a professional manicure at least once in her life, but these items can keep your nails healthy and beautiful in between services!
