I’m always sharing pics of my nail color combinations, so it’s obvious that I like having them painted. What isn’t as obvious is the fact that I always paint them myself. I just can’t bring myself to part with the money to have a manicure and honestly I’m rough on my nails so the color has to be redone every 5 or so days. So to keep my hands looking nice I started doing manicures myself. I learned very early on that a good base coat is key to a good at-home manicure. My favorite is the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Base Coat. I find it helps smooth out the nail surface and seal my nails nicely for color. I also find that it makes it easier to remove color when I’m done because of the barrier between the nail and color that it creates.
