Buy or DIY: Mani Pedi

 As we all know, there are some things that should be left to professionals. Is your mani-pedi one of them?
The manicure is professionally done, while the pedicure was done at home. The SinfulColors color above (Sugar Sugar) is not what is painted on the finger nails. As you can see in the picture below, it’s almost a perfect dupe for this salon brand. The question is, though. Should your mani-pedi be done professionally or at home?
The perfect mani-pedi can actually be done at home. Instead of using cuticle nippers to remove your cuticles, it’s a lot safer to just use cuticle remover and a cuticle tool to get rid of the dead skin. When we talk economics, I’ve paid anywhere from $20 – $25 just for a professional manicure, and I don’t ever seem to have very good luck. For a home manicure, you can get any of the tools you need (cuticle removernail groomer, nail file, nail buffer) online or at the drug store. For a grad total of (about) $23 you can do countless man-pedis right at home, instead of just one.
Is a mani-pedi a buy or a DIY for you?

This girl’s sharp, quick wit may not be for the faint of heart, but those close to her say that she’s caring and hilariously funny. Reality TV, a not -so-small sweet tooth, nail polish, and fashion are but a few of her guilty pleasures. Her obsession with writing and hobby of interviewing brought her to conducting a few interviews with fashion designers and makeup artists for her fashion blog, Hey There, Stylish! Curiosity for different lifestyles and experiences lead to more interviews and ultimately became Gal Pal Magazine. Like many college girls, Lauren is a media strategies major who spends her days going to class; most of her late nights are reserved for studying and her night job.
