Supplies You Need to Do Your Own Nails


Nails are very important to most women. Nails are actually a sign of beauty for women. A well manicured person always looks classier with well manicured hands. Not that it makes them more beautiful, it just gives them a nicer appearance. It’s so expensive for a woman to get her nails done and they have to get them done so often, it seems crazy sometimes. It’s like there isn’t another alternative. ( I asked my girlfriend this question and she told me that it was expensive to look that good and that I wanted her to look nice so there’s a price to pay for that. I’m glad men don’t have to be that high maintenance, I really don’t think I could do it. I told my girlfriend why don’t you just do your own nails.

She said she would but she doesn’t have the time to do them herself. I  asked her what she needed to do her own nails just to see how much she could save by doing them herself. So she started blurting out a bunch of stuff, like if she were speaking another language. If I was really going to figure out how much she could save, I was going to have to write all these things down. I was like damn, you really need all these things just to do your own nail? She was like, “Yup. If you want them to look nice you do, everything”,she said.

So I wrote everything down after I told her to slow down and to speak English. This is the list I came up with:

  • Cuticle Pusher
  • Nail File and Buffing Block
  • Nail Prep or Dehydrator 
  • Nail Primer
  • Dappen Dish
  • Acrylic Nail Brush
  • Lint Free Wipes
  • Acrylic Liquid
  • Top Coat
  • Nail Tips (Optional)
  • Nail Glue (Optional)
  • Pure Acetone (Optional)
  • Cuticle Oil (Optional)
  • Manicure Brush (Optional)
  • Pinching Tool (Optional)

Well this is the list she gave me. More than half of this stuff I’ve never even heard of. I asked her if she really needed all these things just to do her nails. She told me that no, that some of the things were optional.  So I noted that on the list. So I told her, “ So you don’t really need all this stuff right”? She told me that if I didn’t want her nails to look like crap she did. So I had no option but to go along with her. This all really sounds complicated. I still don’t understand though, really all this stuff. I honestly really thought all she needed was the nail polish.Boy was I wrong. Way wrong.

So it looks like for a woman to do her own nails at home is a little more extensive than I thought. I told my girlfriend she won this one, so now I have to pay for her next nail session. Oh well, I don’t, she always looks good regardless. So to any ladies that do their own nails at home, I commend you. God bless!
