Having my nails done just makes me feel a little more put together. I’m sure you feel the same. I always do mine at home, but I know many women who are at the salon every 2-3 weeks getting a fresh manicure. Whichever way you go, there are downfalls to each option. Today I am sharing what I think is the prettiest DIY manicure.
Common manicure problems
- Not enough time in the day
- Long dry time
- Smudges/chips soon after they are done
- Expensive (if going to the salon frequently)
These are just some problems many people face when it comes to a simple manicure.

My favorite solution.. nail strips
How pretty are the ones shown above for fall!
Does anyone really know the official name for these?? Appliques, strips, whatever you call them! Loving these right now!!
I found these nail strips about a year ago. They provide salon quality manicure at home and they have A LOT to offer:
- No dry time
- High quality
Yesssss, please. For under $10 you can get gel quality nails that last up to 14 days. I was even able to get two manicures out of this one pack. Do I need to say anything else?
My favorite brand is Incoco as they have a little bit of stretch to them for application, which makes it a better fit to your nail shape. But, honestly, the Dashing Diva brand is also amazing. I’m wearing this brand now and I only had one nail within that set that didn’t fit just right, but you have to be looking super close to see any flaw in that one. I have gotten so many compliments.
