After 2 long years of lockdown, I'm finally travelling! It feels surreal to finally go and meet my family after so long.
So here I am, trying to pack every possible thing in a tiny suitcase that's supposed to last me for 20 days- and it’s impossible! Being at home for so long, I'm used to having all I need at my disposal. That includes all my favourite polishes, my nail art brushes, nail decals and glitter pots.
Unfortunately, there is no way I can take all of these with me. So here is a list of items that I feel you absolutely MUST have while travelling:
1. Nail Oil Pen
Any nail art enthusiast KNOWS how essential it is to use nail oils/cuticle oils. This Nail Oil Pen is specially formulated to keep your nails flexible and moisturised and is a boon in case you're travelling to a location where it's dry.
2. Peel off base coat
Carry a peel-off base coat like this one from Gorgeous Cosmos just so you won’t have to carry a nail polish remover. It makes changing polishes a breeze.
3. Nail Bio Wax
The Elcorazon Nail bio wax is a handy little pot of goodness. It nourishes, softens and protects the nail plate and cuticle and also helps with skin cuts and peels.
4. Mini nail polish
Mini polishes, apart from looking cute, are so handy to travel with. Brands like Nee Jolie have minis in various shades so that you can match your nails to your outfit.
Nicole's diary also has a peel-off sheer collection of polishes which are perfect for travel!
5. Mini Buffer
Nail Buffers are used to polish the nails using buffers of finer grit to make the nails look more consistent and shinier. This cute mini buffer doesn't take up much of your space and also can be used to shape your nails.
6. Nail decals and stickers
Nail decals and stickers are a quick and affordable way to make your nail art look like it took hours to perfect. They also don’t take up much space so you can carry several sheets and decide on the perfect match later.
