Ever take a glimpse at your at-home manicure and wonder why it doesn't look quite like the salon version? Perfecting a DIY nail look is all about technique (learn more here) and the right supplies. That's why we love Deborah Lippmann's Fast Track kit ($35), which contains five manicure essentials: cuticle remover, cuticle oil, a nail primer, a base coat, and a quick-dry top coat. These are the same formulas she uses on her A-list clients such as Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, and Salma Hayek. So while this kit won't magically imbue you with her precise skills, these formulas can certainly put a shine on every step of your manicure.
