There is nothing like a fresh set of nails or lashes to make you look and feel fantastic, however, for many women a regular trip to the salon is no longer an option.

It’s no secret that salon visits have become pricey, and with the general cost of living going up all the time, many of us have had to cut back on our beauty budgets. Then there’s also the factor of time – in between going to work, fetching the kids, running the household and maintaining a social life, it’s not always possible to fit in a trip to the salon.

The solution? DIY manis and lashes at home. Quick, easy (we promise!) and affordable, DIY treatments are the way of the future.

Now before you think, “I could never do as good a job myself,” you need to consider that the products available for home beauty have advanced astronomically. Long gone are the bulky false nails and messy glues our mothers had to contend with in the past. And lashes? Forget over-the-top spider leg lashes and difficult application – modern DIY lashes are easy to apply and look professional, provided you choose a good quality brand.
