I love to have a nice manicure, but have always saved them for a fun occasion such as a wedding or a holiday. Like many women out there it’s easier to paint them ourselves than to spend money on getting them done. I recently found this new product from Sephora called Formula X The System that is just as good as a manicure (well, almost as good 🙂 ). You can buy individual colors or you can purchase this manicure set that includes 4 polishes to get that manicured look! I love being able to do my own nails at home with these products and to have my color stay on so much longer than before. Here is a quick little rundown on how to use these products:
Step 1- the cleanser. Brush it once or twice over each nail to cleanse it from any daily dirt or buildup. It may not seem needed but it’s amazing how much residue we acquire on our fingernails.
Step 2– the base coat. I love this one because you can literally see and feel the stickiness of the polish and know that it’s going to stick to your color and keep it there for awhile.
Step 3– pick your color, any color! When I purchased this set, I was able to choose my own color to include in the set. I chose “Thrilling” and I wore it all throughout the summer months. This fall, however, I have been loving the darker shades and am wearing this Butter London polish in “La Moss”.
Step 4– the top coat. This is the most important step to finish off the look and give your nails a shiny top coat but also “seal” them and help that color last. It takes a little extra time, but I have loved using this set and seeing the results.
