My favorite at home “gel” manicure!
I’ve gotten so much better at painting my nails after not going into a salon in months, and this combo of products allows my manicure to last a full 2 weeks. I haven’t ventured into gel polishes that require a UV lamp, but the OPI Infinite Shine formula is the same quality. OPI - Infinite Shine Prostay Primer I had never used a nail primer, or even really a base coat, before trying this one, but I definitely feel like it helps the polish stick to the nail better. I’ve tried the infinite shine polish without the primer and my nails chipped much faster. OPI - Long Lasting Nail Polish Infinite Shine 2 this is the shade “engagement to be” which is described as a pale lilac, but appears more grayish purple in person. It’s a beautiful neutral shade and very glossy. The wide brush helps with easy application, and the formula is thick enough to not run, but still allow for buildable coverage through multiple coats. With this particular shade I use 3 coats, but most of the collection only requires 2 coats Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat Super quick drying but also super chip resistant! Makes my nails super glossy but isn’t thick or gummy at all. My nails dry significantly faster with this top coat than any other I’ve ever tried #cheriepartner

3 Most Common Nail Mistakes You’ll Want To Avoid &How To Fix Them!
Since the pandemic started, I’ve had to do my own nails more often. My go-to nail salon has been closed for months. DIY manicures can be a little annoying if you don’t know what you’re doing. I’m telling you my mistakes so you can learn from what I did wrong. My Top 3 Nail Mistakes: 1. Only using one coat of polish I’m the first to admit it, I can be pretty lazy, but one coat of nail polish just doesn’t cut it. I know doing two coats takes more effort and adds to the drying time, but it’s so worth it in the end. 2. Not focusing enough on nail care Nail care is a game-changer! You need to buff, file, and cut your nails before applying polish to get the best results. Buffing really helps smooth out any ridges or inconsistencies on the nail bed. 3. Using a bad top & base coat Do you know that glossy top coat you get from at salons that makes your nails look super shiny and perfect? I didn’t use to care about which base or topcoat I used. I would just use the cheapest one available at the drug store. What a mistake! My Must-Try Nail Products: ●     Seche Vite Base & Top Coat - The Sechevete base and top coats give you that salon-worthy shine you want from a DIY mani. Plus, it helps dry the nails super fast so you can get on with your day! ●     Nail Buff - This thing was only $1, and it’s helped transform the way I give myself manicures! ●     A glass nail file - Did you know glass nail filers are supposed to be healthier for your natural nails? The Final Look I did this fun look for the 4th of July! I filed and buffed my nails with the white buffer and topped them with two coats of my favorite nail polishes by Essie!

If I am stuck on a desert island, this base coat is going with me!
Seche - Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat Seriously though, this base coat works so well. I stopped paying for manicures unless it's a special occasion. I do my own nails and it's not a huge disaster like it used to be when no matter what I end up messing up my polish because it takes so long to dry. It truly dries your nails SO fast. If I have 2 coats of polish maybe 1 minute and 3 coats 2 minutes and I can literally go on with my day. The added bonus is that it stays shiny unlike any other top coat so it looks like a fresh professional mani and lasts longer too. This is a game changer and it works so well.I get disappointed when I go to a nail salon that doesn't carry it and go home to apply it afterwards because I want my nails to stay shiny longer. I painted my nails using the base coat and top coat 3 days ago. No chips yet and for me this is absolutely wonderful results! I bought this base and top coat set because my nail polish never lasts more than a day or two before it chips and looks terrible. The base coat goes on very smoothly and is transparent and shiny in finish- just smells like a normal nail polish would. The top coat is flat out amazing. It truely is a fast dry top coat and really helps keep your nails looking nice if you are very impatient like me and can't stop living life for over an hour to allow your nails to fully dry. Unfortunately, I didn't time how long to took to become fully dry but I'd say 10 minutes after applying the top coat I was doing activities that would normally mess up wet nails. The top coat creates a very shiny and pretty finish to the nails. It has a very strong smell but I don't mind because one coat over top of the nails is all you need and you're good to go. I definitely recommend these items if you are having a really hard time with your nail polish like I was.

How to get the most out of your glitter polish ✨
You ever get a glitter polish in store and it looks STUNNING until you get home to apply it and you get the tiniest wash of glitter. I forget where I picked this trick up from but the way to get the most out of them is to actually use a beauty sponge! I first apply a base coat (which I always do when I paint my nails). I decided I only wanted my thumb and ring fingers to have the glitter as accent nails so I then painted the rest of my nails with the OPI Infinite Shine 2 in Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green which I’m pretty sure was from their Scotland collection. Next, it’s time for the glitter! I picked up some ULTA BEAUTY - Beauty Wedges from work. These are super inexpensive and get the job done. I take a glob of the glitter nail polish and I let it soak into the beauty sponge for 30 seconds to a minute. You’re going to want that bass the glitter is suspended in soaked into the sponge so you’re left with glitter. Then you stamp the glitter onto yours nails just like you would with foundation. Just pat, pat, pat! Not swipe! This creates a gorgeous layer of glitter nail polish! So hindsight is 20/20 and I realized I should have put a sticky layer of removable nail polish glue along to nail line so help with clean up but nail polish remover and a cue tip works just as well! Depending on how much product you apply to the sponge you can dictate how much glitter you want on yours nails. The possibilities are endless. I decided to do two full layers to show it’s full effects. I also didn’t put a base color underneath my nails but I suggest finding a color similar to your glitter to put underneath to fill any gaps you may have (again, hindsight is 20/20 and it’s been a hot second since I’ve done this to my nails). Then I applied by Seche - Gel Effect Top Coat to make sure my nails stay on throughout my work week. The OPI glitter nail polish I applied is called I Pull the Strings and I believe it’s from their old Nutcracker collection but I’ve seen them come out with many different color variations. You could also use make up sponges to ombré nail polish colors. You can even take the removable nail polish glue and paint it on your nails if you just want the glitter in certain areas. The amount of possibilities with make up sponges and glitter nail polish is endless ✨

Retail worker approved nails! 🖤
I work a full time retail job right now which makes wearing nail polish almost impossible. Just on truck day alone between unloading, sorting, and putting out product it can real havoc on the nails. Then you add in planograms (pretty much how you see things displayed in stores that includes everything from shelf placement, graphic strips, and products), tasking, and other odd jobs around the store it makes nail polish chip immediately. This is the only way I ever put on nail polish anymore because it works best for me. Step 1: Base Coat I always use a base coat! Base coats are almost the make up primers of the nail world. They help create a smooth base and insure your polish applies better. It also prevents the polish from staining your nails. When your polish chips constantly it’s important, to me, to not have that staining as you get really embarrassed when pointing things out to people and hoping they don’t see your stained nails. Currently I’m using the OPI - Infinite Shine Prostay Primer which applies clear and dries within a minute which I like because I get very impatient when painting my nails. Step 2: Polish I’ve used a lot of nail polish over the years but the brand I always find myself going back to is OPI. Between their color range, opacity, and how well they apply it’s just been a favorite. Currently I am using OPI - Long Lasting Nail Polish Infinite Shine 2 because I obviously have not put grown my emo phase 😂 You could get away with one coat if you really wanted but I tend to do two coats for full opacity. I’m very messy when it comes to painting my nails so I always have a cap full of nail polish remover and a pointed cue tip on hand to clean up the edges. I also always cap my nail polish by running the brush along the tip to help prevent chipping. The Infinite Shine line by OPI gives your nails a beautiful glossy look to them which I like. Step 3: Top Coat When I say you have to run out and buy this top coat I mean you have to run out and buy this top coat. I’ve tried so many over the years which have done nothing when it comes to chipping. I was watching Taylor Wynn on YouTube one day and she recommended the Seche - Gel Effect Top Coat and I fell in love. This creates a gel base over your nails that is very fast drying and you don’t need a lamp to cure it. It almost feels like a little protective bubble that encases your nails when you apply it. The picture I posted of my nails is over a week of having my nail polish on. Except for a chip in the middle from truck there have been very minimal chipping. Pretty much all you see is the regrowth on the bottom. I was absolutely shocked at how well this has kept my nail polish on. Usually at this point in the wear time I’ve started picking at the polish because it’s more than halfway gone. This gel top coat has reached holy grail status and I highly recommend this product to anyone!

The only top coat I’ll use
The only top coat I’ll use
I love to paint my own nails when I don’t have gel on. It’s such a calming task to do on a Sunday night while catching up on Bravo shows. My old roommates introduced me to this top coat - and it is the best top coat I’ve ever used. It has a professional finish to it, leaving a glossy strong coat on top of your color. The smell does remind me of being in a nail salon, but who’s kidding, wee all secretly enjoy that smell. It’s less than $10, which is average for most “drug store” polishes, but I would still recommend it. I ran out of this product at the end of 2019, and I didn’t have time until a few days ago to get a new bottle, but I’m ready to give myself a mani now :)Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat
