    Need it: Nail clippers

    We know a lot of us can be guilty of gnawing at our fingernails when we’re bored or stressed, but try your best to avoid it! Using nail clippers makes your nails look even and gives them a healthy cut to prepare for polish.

    Need it: Nail File

    After clipping your nails, you’ll want to smooth and shape them with a nail file. This can also be therapeutic if you’re feeling stressed (a way better option than nail biting). Just be sure to not grind your nails down too far.

    Need it: Cuticle pusher

    Cuticles can become uneven and rough, ruining your sleek and shiny polish. A cuticle pusher helps push back your cuticles to make your nails look longer and better groomed.

    Need it: Base Coat

    Base coats help fill in lines and grooves and give your nails a sleeker look. A lot of base coats also contain different vitamins that can help keep your nails healthier and prevent breakage.

    Need it: Top Coat

    A topcoat can really give your mani the finishing touch. It can even enhance poor quality nail polish! Applying this to your nails after you’ve applied color can add some shine and keep your nails from chipping and smudging.

Just a little animal print goes a long way. Leopard flats, zebra scarf and spotty shirt are all super cute solo, but best kept apart.
