I have a secret. I’m addicted to a lot of things – not just baking. From nail polish and lip gloss to shoes and home decor, I pretty much have issues.

I love when people share their “must-have” have products in blog posts and on YouTube, so I thought I’d start a new series on MBA that focuses on my current favorites for a variety of topics. Some will definitely be baking/cooking related, but most of them will be random things that I’ve purchased, used and fallen in love with.

As the weather warms up, I find myself drawn to bolder nail polish colors, so I thought I’d share my must have products for at home manicures and pedicures.

I hope you enjoy this new series and I encourage you to feed into my shopping obsession by telling me about all of your favorite things in the comment section below!

What are your favorite at home manicure essentials?

1. Essie First Base | 2. Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat | 3. Diamancel Flexible Nail File | 4. Sally Hansen Insta Gel Strips | 5. Essie Turks and Caicos | 6. Essie Peach Daiquiri | 7. Essie Ballet Slippers | 8. Essie Bachelorette Bash | 9. Soap and Glory Hand Food

    I love the hand food cream. It really helped with my dry hands over the winter. And anything Essie rocks in my book. Seche Vite is my favorite top coat too! Nothing else leaves my nails as nice and shiny!

  2. Laura says:

    I bet that hand cream smells amazing! Aside from my arsenal of nail polish, some of my manicure must-haves are Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat and CND Cuticle Eraser.

    Hand food sounds good. I also love Burt’s Need Shea Buyer Hand Repair.

    Looking forward to more Friday Faves :)

    Love this! I gave up painting my nails last summer when the book work had me in the kitchen constantly, but I missed it so much – now I’m back on the wagon and I’m obsessed with the matte finish topcoat from Nails Inc. at Sephora. Try it with a dark polish!

  7. Amanda says:

    Love love love love Seche Vite – it dries my nails SO quickly. Definite must have.

  8. Sarah E says:

    I love Essie – I have Peach Daiquiri and it’s one of my faves :)
    I really need to try the Seche Vite – everyone swears by it and I don’t yet have a favorite base/top coat
