How-to: your easiest on-the-go manicure
Have you ever been off on holidays, far away from the safety of your nail polish collection and care kit, and looked down to see tattered nails with chipped-off colour staring back at you?
It's almost enough to put you off travelling altogether. But I’ve discovered that it is possible to travel light AND have amazing nails. Yes, really.
Did you know that there are only a few must-have items out there that you need to carry with you in order to ensure that you never suffer from a scary set of digits? Yep, I've got the four-piece formula to follow so you never feel self-conscious about your talons again.
ON-THE-GO MANICURE ITEM #1: Nail polish remover pads. With no chance of leakage like its bottled, liquid alternative, you can also be sure that nail polish remover pads are fine to carry on a plane, thanks to no worries over liquid limitations. These little pads are also nourishing for your nails and smell oh-so sweet.We like: Cutex Nail Polish Remover Wipes Sachets.
ON-THE-GO MANICURE ITEM #2: Nail bufferOnce you've removed your chipped polish, more often than not you'll be left with uneven, peeling nail beds in need of smoothing. Why not use a 4-way buffer to achieve a salon-quality smoothness? It takes next to no time and brushing the four edges over each nail will see them buffed, filed, polished and shiny! We like: Manicare 4 Way Buffer.
ON-THE-GO MANICURE ITEM #3: Top coat and base coat in one.Having this handy two-in-one with you for emergency manicures will ensure that your polish won't stain your nail beds (thank you base coat) and also maintains a show-stopping shine and long-lasting finish when applied on top of your nail colour (thank you top coat!). We like: Australis Top & Base Nail Coat.
ON-THE-GO MANICURE ITEM #4: Mini nail huesOdds are if you're off and traveling for a long while you're going to need more than one nail hue with you to keep you satisfied. Why not choose a couple of mini polishes to carry with you? Two or three of these shades equate to the same weight and size of one normal-sized bottle, so why not? We love: Mini Bourjois nail polishes - just 3mL each!
