At Home Gel Nails

In 2024 we’re doing our nails at home and saying goodbye to the nail salon! I started doing my own nails in 2020, because nail salons were closed and I needed a new hobby. Now, 4 years later it’s safe to say I’m mildly obsessed. If you’re new to doing your own nails, I’ve included a list of essentials below. From basic beginner to higher end advanced supplies, this will help you wherever you are in your at- home nail journey!
