I recently took a break from my acrylic nails because honestly, I really did miss doing at home manicures. Painting my nails while watching a good show (Breaking Bad, anyone? I'm almost done with season 4) is definitely high on my fun list. Here is what I use to get a great at home manicure that lasts!
Next I prime my nails using Essie's base coat. This base coat fills in any ridges or grooves I have in my nails from using acrylics, and creates a nice smooth canvas for my polish.
For this post, I went with one of my fall OPI nail color picks, DS Radiance. This color is like liquid silver in a bottle, I swear! I normally apply two coats and let them dry, finishing off with a top coat by OPI as well. With these easy steps, you can achieve a great at home manicure in no time at all!
