If your spring shopping list is as long as ours, you are probably looking for ways to cut back—whether that means skipping your morning latte, only picking up the US edition of Vogue, or taking a run around the neighborhood instead of hitting the gym. Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, our preferred method of meeting of our budget is the at-home DIY manicure. By picking up the necessary tools and a few key nail polishes, you can cancel your weekly salon visit and give yourself a fabulous budget-friendly manicure that quickly pays for itself. Our recommendations? Make sure you snap up a nail file set, a buffer, a cuticle remover, and a pair of cuticle scissors—these items will work to shape and shine your talons. Then, pick your favorite polish—we love Revlon’s Sweet Tart Nail Enamel—and a bottle of nail polish remover (for next time) and you are good to go! Plus, did we mention the entire kit will cost you just $40? Check out our full list inside!
