During the past few years of working to grow my YouTube channel, I decided it might be time to get the nails into a more eye-pleasing presentation. From the very early days of my videos (and yes, here’s my very first card video on YouTube), I figured it was a good call to paint the nails.
I’ve gone through many nail care phases in my 53 years on the planet, and 95% of them involved doing them myself at home. True, I do enjoy a salon mani, but for most of my life I’ve just done my own nails. When I discovered Olive & June, a new-to-me company, I fell in love with their neutral, simple collection of polishes, and decided to check out their products for my at home manis. They recently posted a how-to mani basics video on their newly-launched YouTube channel and that’s what inspired me to follow their approach step-by-step!
I know this isn’t my usual type of YouTube clip, and I have NO illusions of being a beauty and fashion blogger (because, let’s be real here, have you seen my Instagram stories? I’m not exactly a fashion maven here!), but… I thought I’d share me following their process at home. I love doing it at home, saving the money, and then turning around and just buying more polishes. Win-win, in my book.
And that is the basic approach. Check out their Olive University page for more info on the entire collection! Their polishes are cruelty-free and vegan, and not full of the classic nail polish bad stuff. So there’s that!
Here is the video wherein this freshly completed mani appears:
If you like doing your nails at home, check out the Olive & June collection! I have about six of their polishes at present and the collection grows.
Their Studio Box is a really great entry into their line and nail care tools! I purchased it to get started and that’s what got me hooked!
