Admit it: You're bored with your current nail routine. Chipped nail polishes, lackluster manicures, it's so been-there-done-that. Now is the time to try new things, and why not start with updating your nail routine? If you're anything like me, you might consider the idea of forgoing the standard manicure to be…slightly daunting. I'll admit that I'm not the most dexterous person, so anything wild like nail art just seems out of the question for me. However, with this in mind, the below products don't require intense amounts of skill to accomplish. Instead, consider these visual upgrades that might actually be easier to do yourself than anything you've done prior. A glitzy topcoat, nail stickers that make any look more fun, and more are just a click away.
