A lot find it a task or something they would rather not do but I get great joy of having a new , freshly painted manicure to enjoy and the fact that I done them myself makes me feel a sense of achievement. I do get a lot of complaints on my nails often mistaking them for gels which is probably down to my trustworthy Seche Vite Topcoat. Over the years I have come across and researched nail products that will make my manicure as professional as possible with minimal effort required. If I have been wearing polish I love to use the Bourjois Magic nail polish remover which only requires you to twist your finger into the pot and like magic it comes off with ease leaving behind a berry scented oil.

I always begin my manicure by removing my cuticles and the product I use to do this is the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover which isn't shy in the blogging world. After seeing Anna rave about this product I thought it was worth a try. Did I think it would work? No, but I was happily proven wrong with it quite literally melting your cuticles away without pain or fuss with the help of a wooden cuticle pusher.  If I am really in the mood I will go on to file my nails into a square kind of shape which I am really liking at the moment.

I then apply my base coat, I'm currently using a Rimmel London nail nurse one but I am not really getting on with it and am very open to recommendations for my next purchase! The nail colour will follow after. I recently bought Barry m's Coconut which is a creamy white shade. To finish I usually apply my Seche Vite topcoat but when I have run out and can't afford a new bottle straight away I tend to use Nails Inc's Cavier Topcoat a great alternative but one I probably wouldn't repurchase.

What do you use for your manicure ?
