Arrivals That Will Nail An At-Home Manicure

From industry-leading gel polishes to stunning press-on {nails}, these are the must-see beauty heroes for manicurists in the making…

If you’re gel obsession is making its mark on your bank account, then it’s about time that you met {Manucurist}: the cruelty-free brand whose eco-friendly gel nail polish has taken the beauty industry by storm. Promising all the shine and long-wear of a gel manicure, the {Green Flash} gel polish is made from good-to-nails, bio-sourced ingredients that won’t damage your nails. Not only is it easy to apply, removal is a walk in the park — just use a gentle nail polish remover.

While not quite a pair of red bottoms (the heel-like lid does pay homage to the coveted shoes), Christian Louboutin Beauty’s {Nail Colour Rouge Louboutin} will elevate your nail-painting routine to an artistic exercise. Inviting you to take your time as lavish your nails with lacquer, the tall slender cap grants greater precision and allows you to deftly control the brush. The highly pigmented, vibrant red formula is adored for its ability to achieve the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer, in just two coats.

Nothing short of the master of manicures, Amy Rickaby has amassed over 100,000 followers (and counting!) on Instagram with her nail art. Perfecting everything from intricate swirls and trending tortoiseshell designs to reverse French manicures (yes, that’s a thing and we love it!), it’s no wonder that everyone is flocking to her line of reusable press-on nails, {Beauty Works by Amy}. One of her signature styles, the {Marble Inkies Long Coffin Shape False Nails} have a multi-tone marble design with gold foil accents — it’ll be hard not to spend extended periods of time gazing at them…

Bring the salon to your sofa (or desk or bed or dining table…) with NAILS.INC’s {Manicure Me Quad}; it’s curated to help you nail a chic, pulled-together mani, while also hydrating and nourishing your nails to keep them in tip-top condition. Combining four of the brand’s hero products – one for each step of the priming and painting process – this kit will empower you to perfect your at-home mani-pedi process (saving you time, money and unnecessary trips to the nail salon).
