I went to different nail salons to get my nails done for years. It got to the pint that I couldn't stand the look of my nails without them being done up.
A few months ago I lost a lot of money an as hard as I tried I couldn't afford to keep going to the salon. But it was a hard time and I still wanted to feel like I looked good.
I saw a used nail drill online and bought it for 20 bucks. A friend of mine does nails and she showed me how to use it. It took a while to get the hang of because it looks different to do it for yourself than to have it done to you. I won't lie that I nicked myself more than a few times.
But eventually I got the hang of it and now I do all my own nail work. Its probably not for everyone but it works for me.
