DIY Manicure / How I do my own nails


I get quite a lot of comments on my nails. People seem to assume I’m one of those who visit the nail salon on the regular and get them done, but oh no. I do them myself. They’re in a almond shape, semi-long and strong. Always in a nude, pastel or dark colour. The only colour I don’t wear is red. After I quit my cabin crew job I stopped wearing red nail polish as that was one of the few allowed colours.
I take good care of them and give myself a little manicure nearly weekly, and this is how.

You need:

  • Nail file
  • Nail buffer. My one is from Leighton Denny
  • Base coat
  • Nail polish
  • Optional: Top coat

Base coat from Sephora (3 in 1 strengthening nail care), nail polish from my favourite brand Barry M, Seche Vite top coat

Start by removing any old polish with a acetone free nail polish remover – it’s less harsh on the skin and nails Next, file into desired shape and buff buff buff till they are smooth and add a layer of base coat
Paint with two to three layers with your polish. This one is called Eat My Dust (light blue), haha. Lastly, if I don’t have much time or feel a bit impatient I add a layer of Seche Vite, which makes them dry so much quicker.
This little manicure of mine usually last for about a week, sometimes longer!
