Nail File: My Go To Products

Anyone who follows my Instagram knows how obsessed with painting my nails I am. I own every color you could imagine. A lot of people ask me how I keep my nails healthy and strong. I love having long nails without having to wear tips. Artificial nails and shellac can reap havoc on natural nails so I like to avoid these at all costs. I use a few products that allow me to do this and keep my natural nails from breaking.

First, I file my clean nails into the shape I desire which currently is oval. Then, I cut my cuticles with my trusty tool. I smooth everything with a buffer and use nail polish remover to take off any oils that may be left on nails. This will definitely make your mani last longer.

I start with Essie Base Coat. My favorite new product is OPI Nail Envy and I apply two coats to nails after. This stuff is genius and really does prevent breakage. My nails are so hard and strong now. Reapply it every other day.
I usually stay with nudes, black, and red. Right now, I adore Essie Style Hunter and Spin The Bottle along with OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. However, the summer is a great time to experiment with fun, bold colors. I finish with the ultimate top coat, Seche Vite. Nothing compares to the shine and gel-like finish it leaves on nails. It also dries super fast.

There you have it. Until the next manicure.....
