Nail It: Sick Of Looking @ Jacked Up Cuticles and Chipped Tips?

September 18, 2012  |  

When you become a mother some of your personal beauty rituals get thrown by the wayside. Bi-weekly nail appointments get traded in for piano lessons and soccer practice. There is no denying that we all want to admire freshly painted fingernails, especially when your reality has been summed up to not remembering the last time you had a proper manicure or pedicure.

Skipping over to the nail salon without arranging for childcare may no longer be an option, but thanks to many new products on the beauty market you can easily recreate a perfect manicure at home. Nail lacquer is the newest accessory that even the most style challenged individual can now easily implement.

Press on manicures, stickers adorned with art and DIY gel polish has emerged on the market as the newest trends in nail care. Minimal pricing, and easy application coupled with quick to no drying time makes these alternatives a hit amongst busy mothers.

The days of strong smelling nail glue that stuck your fingers together have been reduced to a small, easily removed tab that promises to adhere press on nails for at least seven days. Nail stickers that promise to remain intact for 10 days with no drying time and gel polish that promises no nicks for 10 days makes it hard not to take a stab at being our own master manicurist.

Nail art, ombre coloring, jewel embellishments and the stiletto nail are just a few of the trends that have made their way from the runway to everyday life. The emergence of these easy to use products make it easier than ever to stay in line with the seasons ”it” nail trends. Step out of the box and try something new with your digits; they are your new accessories!

Have you tried any of the new nail products? Would you try again or would you rather find a babysitter and go have them professionally done?
