Poll Results: Do I Get a Mani-what?

SheFinds Asks: How often do you go get a manicure?

Readers Respond: "Why pay $20 to have someone do my nails when I can just as easily do my own at home?"

We totally agree. Although every once in a while it's nice to splurge and pamper ourselves with a mani/pedi combo (sure beats scrubbing away in the tub with a pumice stone) we're reluctant to be die-hard salon goers. Not only does the cost add up, but so does the time. We can get our nails polished and pretty in about 10 minutes, whereas a trip to the salon will bite into an hour of our time.  

What are some of our favorite nail products for our at-home manis?

1. Creative Nail Design Solar Oil Conditioner: Gotta love the sweet smelling vitamin E, almond oil and jojoba oil combo for curing dry cuticles and moisturizing brittle nails.

2. OPI Nail Polishicon: Beautiful colors, the perfectly shaped brush, fast formula and long wearing — no wonder it's our favorite. Plus, OPI's lacquers will soon be chemical-free!

3. Polish-Off Nail Polish Remover Pads, Non-Acetone: Not only do these convenient pads remove nail polish of any hue with minimal effort, but they're safe for sensitive skin, too.
