My Nail Painting Essentials


  1. Zoya Remove +. This nail polish remover is my all-time favorite because its smell is much milder than other removers and it comes in this convenient pump bottle that locks when not in use.
  2. Butter London Base and Top Coats. This is my go-to duo for manicures and pedicures. I love the formula, plain and simple.
  3. Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat. If you constantly fall victim to post-manicure smudges or zombie hands, this is the top coat for you. It cures under a regular light bulb in 2 minutes or dries normally in 5 minutes with a gel-like shine.
  4. Manicure/Pedicure Sticks. Great for cleaning up polish that pools at the cuticle or sides of your nails along the way.
  5. Angle Brush. Dip in polish remover or pure acetone and sweep along the edge of nails to clean up any dry polish on the skin. Go for a cheap one, as this is solely for nail care.
