Okay, we’ve been at home for at least two full months by now… and the state of your nails is probably proof!
I know that we all love a good pamper session at the salon, but until then, here’s how you can *nail* your at home quarantine manicure all by yourself! Who knows, maybe you’ll love it so much that you won’t even need your next salon appointment 😉Here are the three steps I ALWAYS incorporate into my routine when I’m doing my nails at home, to make for a shiny, healthy and long-lasting manicure (and here’s the Chanel nail color I’m currently wearing – #735 Daydream).

- Remove excess oil by buffing your nails with a nail file, and swiping them with acetone before applying any polish. Oily nails causes the polish to peel early, and we definitely don’t want that!
- Never skip a base or top coat! I know it can be tempting to jump straight into the color, but the base coat protects your natural nail from staining, while providing a foundation for the nail color to adhere to… and your top coat adds that salon-worthy shine and quick-drying protection you need for the perfect finish.
- It can be annoying to wait for your nail polish to dry when you have lots of things to do. My solution? I dip my nails into ice water for 1 minute, and it really helps to speed up the drying process!
