Nothing says “pamper time” quite like a DIY manicure. Filing, shaping, protecting and polishing; there’s something very zen about the whole process. And, whether you love a pop of colour or the classic simplicity of French tips, these brands have everything you need to get your nails looking perfect for the coming season. So, the only question is, which will you be wearing next?

Nails Inc 

100% cruelty-free and based right here in the UK, Nails Inc offer innovative, expertly formulated nail products for every step of your mani. Try the Powered By Collagen range, which restores health to thin and brittle nails. Or,  try the plant-powered Dont Stop Beleafing Duo, which includes two truly stunning shades; forest green Grow Your Eco, and copper Palms In The Air polishes.

Elegant Touch

When it comes to false nails, Elegant Touch brings variety, quality and on-trend styles. Colours include classics, like French Bare and Berry Blast, as well as more show-stopping options in the Luxe Looks range. Try Strip Tease, with pink glitter ombre tips, or Don’t Mocha Me, nude nails with metallic accents. Whatever look you’ve been coveting, you’ll find your fantasy falsies with Elegant Touch.

Bluesky

Who needs a salon when you can get professional-quality gel nails from the comfort of home? Award-winning gel nail brand, Bluesky, offers a vast range of gel polishes, so the only limit is your imagination. The Bluesky Starter Kit contains a UV light and three base coat colours to get you started, then top up with whatever hue takes your fancy from the rest of the range. We’re living for the Lucky Set 3, which includes six shades that are perfect for autumn. 

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen is one of the biggest names in the industry, and for good reason. Starting with a dedicated nail care range, the brand has been primarily focused on improving nail health and have taken this same approach to their cosmetic polish lines. Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Vegan Nail Polish is an excellent example of this, with a plant-based formulation that still delivers long-lasting, vibrant results.

Rimmel

Rimmel knows a thing or two about beauty, and the two-step Rimmel SuperGel is one of the company’s best-selling products. Created to allow you to achieve gel nails at home without a UV lamp, the system starts with a base coat of thick, pigmented colour and finishes with a top coat of protective nail lacquer. Best of all, it’s both easy to apply and remove, so you can change your shade whenever the mood takes you.

Max Factor

Known as the makeup of makeup artists, Max Factor is a distinguished brand in the cosmetics industry. If you don’t have the patience to cure your gel polish under a UV lamp, Max Factor Nailfinity X-Press Gel Nail Polish is a great alternative. A glossy, gel-like polish with a chip-repellent finish, the polish comes in a variety of vibrant shades, including VIP and Spotlight On Her. Try something bold or stick to your favourite; the choice is yours.

When it comes to home manicures, you’re spoiled for choice, with a rainbow of quality nail polishes, all available at Fragrance Direct.
