Hello, beauties! I’ve often been asked over the years to share how I do my at home manicures. There’s really nothing all that special or innovative about my method. It’s just a combination of tips and tricks I picked up from beauty gurus over the years and lots of practice. Today I thought I would share my current go-to manicure tools as well as share in a video how I paint my nails.

I have a little kit I put together years ago that I keep all of my manicure tools in. This helps to corral everything in one place that is easy to take around the house with me depending on where I feel like doing my nails. I use the Mini Hobby Box from The Container Store.
To be honest, I don’t use the majority of what is stored in my manicure kit on a regular basis, but I like having all of the tools and accessories stored together so I know where to find something in case I do want to use it. I keep smaller items in the top tray, and my nail polish rag, as I fondly call it, along with bigger items in the bottom. I use that rag underneath my hands every time I do my nails to avoid unfortunate polish or remover spills and accidents. It not only helps to protect the surface on which I paint my nails, but is also a convenient place to wipe of my clean up tool.
My favorite manicure tools at the moment include:
❊ Revlon Colorstay Gel Shine Top Coat (discontinued)
❊ Royal Soft Grip Gold Tak Short Shader Brush SG155-4 (for polish clean-ups around the nail)
❊ Cult Nails Glass File (discontinued)
Here’s a look at the polish I used in my video, Revlon Colorstay in Cayenne. It’s one of my all time favorite fall shades! I love how vibrant this brick red-orange is. The shimmer is subtle but gives the nails a beautiful shine and glow. Plus, the Colorstay formula is super durable in my experience with great wear.
