BEST NAIL TOOL:
4-sided Nail Buffer ($2, Target)
This Nail Buffer has 4 sides: Even Out, Smooth Nail, Buff Nail, and Shine Nail. I use sides 2 and 3 most, and this is a great tool to have if you do your own manicures all the time. You can even use this to file your nails. It gets rid of ridges on your nails and provides a smooth surface for your nail polish.
BEST NAIL STICKERS:
Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips ($5, drugstores)
It seems like every brand is coming out with their own versions of nail stickers, but I think these are the best, and one of the cheapest! They have a TON of designs and colors, and the best part is, you can get two manicures out of one box. They last for up to 10 days, and they come with 16 strips, so you will definitely find the right sizes for your nails. I always follow these up with a topcoat to get even more wear out of them.
BEST BASE COAT:
OPI Natural Nail Base Coat ($7, ULTA)
This is a great base coat. I recommend always using a base coat to keep your nails from yellowing, especially when using dark nail color. This base coat dries very quick, and it keeps your polish from chipping.
BEST TOP COAT:
China Glaze No Chip Top Coat ($6, ULTA)
This has been my favorite top coat for 2013 because it is so shiny, and it really does not chip! It dries super fast, and it makes any nail polish look so much better because of how shiny it is.
BEST DRUGSTORE POLISH
Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Nail Color ($3, drugstores)
This is my favorite drugstore polish because it goes on thick, it has a nice wider brush, and it lasts a long time. They have a great color selection, which includes Pacific Blue, which is one of my all-time favorite nail colors.
BEST HIGH-END POLISH
Butter London Nail Color ($15, ULTA)
I tried Butter London for the first time this year, and I understand why they are $15 a pop! They are amazing! The colors they have are gorgeous, and you can use just one coat to get great coverage. I love the look of the bottles, and these colors have great lasting power.
BEST GLITTER POLISH
Deborah Lippmann Nail Color ($19, Sephora)
Guys. No one does glitter like Deborah Lippmann. Her glitters are unlike any others, and the bottles are so chock full of glitter that you can use them on their own and not have to layer them over polish. The colors and combinations of glitter in each bottle is just gorgeous. If you feel like splurging, go to Sephora and check them out!
