Although I've always considered manis and pedis as luxuries, I acknowledge the fact that a good coat of polish can help me look put-together. I book an appointment on special occasions or on days when I feel like I deserve a tempering sesh. But ever since the pandemic hit, I totally had a no-nail-salon rule. TBH, I can't even recall the last time I was in a nail salon. I've been tending to my cuticles and painting my nails for months.
This whole DIY process made me realize that I did not have the right tools with me. Thankfully, I found a kit that has it all: Posh Nails, yes, the celebrity favorite nail salon, introduced the Nail The Day kit.
It was designed by Posh Nails CEO and President Cat Ilacad with beginners in mind. “My concept for the Nail The Day kit is self-care made easy,” Ilacad shares. “When our stores had to close in keeping with community quarantine guidelines, most of my friends were asking me how they can take care of their nails. Creating this kit was already part of our timeline for the business, but we had to launch ahead of time because of the requests of friends who frequent Posh Nails.”
Here's a list of what's inside each beginner's manicure kit:
- Clip It Clean Nail Clippers
- Nail file
- Buffing block
- Cuticle oil pen
- Touch Up Brush (to clean up messy polish application)
- Nail brush
- Hangnail nipper
- Mist bottle
- Polish remover (it's acetone-free!)
I tried it for myself and here's a short, very honest review: I'm such a big fan of the clippers! They're super sharp, and the blades' edge makes it easy for me to create my desired nail shape. I also like the hangnail nipper because it allows me to clean up the dead skin around the sidewalls. The angled Touch Up Brush also does a great job in removing the excess polish on the sides of my nails. My mani looks clean and professionally done!
