Whether you prefer getting gel manicures at the salon or painting your nails at home, one thing's for certain. All those polish changes can do a number on your nails. We're talking weak, brittle nails that split and crack super easily. Luckily, there are several nail strengtheners on the market you can use to nurse your nails back to health.
Do your nails chip almost immediately after applying polish? Would you rather not put your hands under a UV light for a long-lasting gel manicure? If you answered yes to either question, a dip powder manicure may be right for you.
Spring means flowers, showers and new nail polishes from your favorite brands. It's the perfect time to refresh your beauty routine, especially if you've been stuck in a manicure rut. There are plenty of pretty polishes to choose from right now with everything from pastel pinks to moody grays to bright blues trending.
Because you're spending so much time at home these days, it makes sense you'd want to step up your at-home manicure game. You could reach for a bottle of nail polish from that tried-and-true salon brand. But there are so many indie nail polishes worth trying these days. So why not step out of your mani comfort zone?

Still skipping out on your salon appointments? Thankfully, there are some great at-home nail products to try — many big name beauty brands are unveiling new nail decals, stickers and strips to help you achieve that runway-ready look, right in the comfort of your own home.
With the country just starting to open up after a months-long lockdown, chances are you may not feel all that comfortable hitting up your local salon just yet. The good news is, there have never been more options to choose from for an at-home mani.
While it's a real treat to get an in-salon manicure, doing your own nails in the comfort of your home has a number of benefits, too. For starters, the cost-savings is no joke. At $50 a pop for a professional manicure at a frequency of once per month, you're looking at an annual spend of $600. Second, doing your own manicure can be downright therapeutic: It's like an art project, but one you get to take with you wherever you go! So, if you're planning to dive into the at-home mani game, these eight products will help ensure a professional end result.
We're glad that everyone is limiting their social contact at the moment, but it's tough. With so much uncertainty and fear in the air, we're missing our creature comforts — you know, like those mani-pedis — even more than usual.
As the temperatures begin to rise, it's not only time to switch out the items in your wardrobe (bye, bye sweaters!). It's also time to usher in some new nail colors for all your spring manis and pedis. Brittney Boyce, LA-based nail artist, says pops of color are big for spring 2020, adding that neutrals are also in style. In terms of nail art? She says glass French extensions and abstract manis are all the rage right now. Meanwhile, Mar y Sol Inzerillo, celebrity nail expert, like pastel yellow and classic white for spring 2020. Finally, Deborah Lippmann, celebrity manicurist, says, "There is such a trend right now to wear multiple shades on your nails."
Heading into a nail salon can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Not just in the sense that the technicians may or may not be able to deliver a high-quality manicure or pull off the design you're going for, but in terms of offering a hygienic setting. Let's face it: nail salons can be germ warzones. There are bare feet everywhere, tools that have the potential to draw blood (even if only by accident), and ample opportunity for double dipping (quite literally). To ensure you're in a clean and reputable nail salon, follow this advice.
