The Lazy Girl's Guide to Gorgeous Nails at Home

Updated on May 16, 2017

If you’re a lazy girl, you’ll understand the struggle and effort it takes to go out and look great. Getting out of bed is an effort in itself and you deserve an applause for not staying home and binge watching orange is the new black. If finding the perfect outfit, shoes and accessories isn’t enough, we need to worry about shaving our legs, making sure our make-up is on fleek, finding a good hairstyle and also finding the time to go and get our nails done. Getting your nails done professional can take over an hour sometimes and you end up unhappy with the results. These simple DIY nail hacks are a sure fire way to save you money, time and EFFORT!

Fast Drying Nails

Fast drying nails offer you the option of flexibility and saving time when it comes to doing your nails. Most of the fast accelerating nails take around the 60-second mark to activate and dry. A perfect solution for last minute nails! If you are uncoordinated like the rest of us lazy ladies, then 60-second nails are perfect. Screwed up the paint job? Just scrap it!
A few awesome brands to consider in these ranges include Morgan Taylor polishes and even Revlon does a pretty mean version of this.
Pros: Fast drying
Cons: Chips rather easily

Fast no mess professional nails

Professional looking nails do take a little longer to dry. For nails with no mess, you can’t go past the dipping system from Kiara Sky or SSS. At first, this idea sounds a little complex but it’s totally easy to use. You start out by buffing your nails then adding the bond connector over your nails. After that, you just dip your nails into the dip powder colour of your choice and add the base coat. You keep repeating this dipping process in the dip powder then applying the base coat on top. Once you are happy with your nails you just add the seal protect to activate it! Again it sounds a little complex and expensive, to begin with, but in the long run, will save you so much money and time.
Pros: Long lasting
Cons: Can be time-consuming, especially when learning how to use it.

Long lasting breathable nails

This range is perfect for the lazy girl who wants their nail polish to last longer than the average quick drying nail polish. There are a few good brands out there that you can get away with using only one or two coats. Some even have really cool top coats like Matte and no chip for longer lasting results. The Orly range is becoming extremely popular as it lasts a little longer than some of the other items on the market. Sometimes these polishes can take a little longer to dry so make sure you are careful with them! That means lazing around waiting for them to dry, score!
Pros: Long lasting
Cons: Doesn’t dry instantly
