06 Dec [CLOSED] 5 Steps to the Perfect Manicure this Season
With the festive season being so busy, the last thing on your mind is making sure that your manicure is in tip-top shape. If like me, you are disappointed to find that your salon is already fully booked, don’t stress, I am sharing my favourite Morgan Taylor products for getting a salon-quality manicure right at home.
Step 1: Morgan Taylor’s React Base Coat
You might already know that my favourite nail polish brand is Morgan Taylor. I have an impressive collection of their lacquers, but I have recently discovered their React Base and Topcoat which has just about blown me away. Before any mani or pedi, I start by applying The Morgan Taylor React Base Coat which is infused with Gelish technology, providing colour adhesion for up to 10 days of wear. There’s also no need for an LED light, it’s easy to remove and helps maintain the integrity of your natural nails, while providing stain protection. And yes, it can be paired with any lacquer, improving its longevity!
Step 2: Morgan Taylor’s Lacquer
Picking your favourite Morgan Taylor Lacquer is the hardest part of this manicure! For the festive season, why not choose one of their gorgeous reds, greens or even a nude paired with their sparkling glitters. If you’re more into neon shades for some fun in the sun, take advantage of their newest Selfie Collection. I love the vibrancy of their shades, the smoothness of the application and how the brush gives the perfect swipe of colour, every time.

Step 3: Morgan Taylor’s React Top Coat
To finish the look, apply a coat of the Morgan Taylor React Top Coat which gives your manicure the ultimate shine. Best of all, the formula remains chip-resistant for up to 10 days, yet still applies like any other nail lacquer.
Step 4: Accelerate Quick Dry Drops
Nobody has time to waste, waiting for their nails to dry! Speed things up with Morgan Taylor’s Accelerate Quick Dry Drops which dries your nails in 60-seconds, leaving them completely dry within 8-quick-minutes. Just in time to grab your sunnies and SPF, for a quick dive in the pool!
Step 5: Snap a Selfie!
Of course, no mani is complete without it featuring on your Instagram! Don’t forget to gather your girls for a selfie, or take a snap of you all holding your holiday spritzers to show off those fresh manis!
