While you may be a low-maintenance mom, even you deserve a pampering sesh every now and then. Don’t be silly—yes, we mean YOU. With all the shenanigans you put up with, a few mins of self-care is not only recommended but mandatory (even if it means taking it while hiding in your closet). Beyond a bubble bath or your favorite sheet mask (we like the tingly charcoal ones), taking the time to actually do your nails is such a luxury these days. With some nail salons still not open or only offering limited appointments due to COVID-19 restrictions, having the ability to DIY your own nails with polish or nail art strips will allow you to skip the salon altogether this winter.

If you’re accustomed to painting your nails at home, then you already know the best salon-worthy nail polishes to score on a budget. Being the practical mom that you are, it’s unlikely you’d fork over $60+ for a mani/pedi when you can do it yourself. But you’ve been seeing all the mamas on Pinterest with their interesting rainbow French manis and matte gradient nails and thinking maybe you can do it, right? Well, unless you’re ambidextrous—and have all the time in the world—creating nail art from scratch probably isn’t worth the hassle. That’s where these genius gel nail stickers come in. Easy as peel, place, and go, they have a relatively small margin of error. Too impatient to wait for your nails to fully dry? The best nail polish strips are completely fuss-free and look damn good (#BraggingRights!). Give your kiddo a few unicorn coloring pages to keep them busy while you enjoy your mini nail spa time.

Check out the best nail stickers, nail appliqués, and nail polish strips of 2020 that you can apply without even leaving the comfort of your couch. It’s stick on nail polish! What better quarantine activity than an at-home mani and a glass of your favorite vino on a Friday night? These babies will stay intact even while building your kid’s bookcase. One salon tip we have to give when applying even the best nail wraps, and I can’t stress this enough: always use a top coat to seal the deal.
