The One Item You Need To Achieve A Salon-Like Manicure At Home

If you’re like me (and most women, for that matter), you love going to the salon and getting a mani with the works. I’m talking nails filed to perfection, hand massage, all that! But when those indulgent manicures cost upwards of $35, they can quickly take a toll on your bank account. That’s why I spent the last few months testing tons of nail products to come up with the beauty-lovers guide to at-home mani essentials.

The one product you absolutely, positively need for a salon-like at-home mani? Deborah Lippmann’s Cuticle Lab Set, which is available at Nordstrom.

In this set, you receive cuticle oil, non-drying cuticle exfoliant, cuticle repair cream, a pusher and most importantly, a step-by-step guide for using all of these products. Here’s the secret that nail pros already know: a great manicure starts with healthy cuticles! This set is truly genius and a hands down must-have for anyone new to the at-home mani game.

Some of my other essentials? Fresh’s Seaberry Nourishing Hand Cream works wonders, especially during the dry winter months. Apply after you’ve finished tending to your cuticles. And I can’t forget Essie’s No Chip Ahead top coat, which, well, speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out the best drugstore beauty products and the best beauty buys at Target.
