We're in a time of DIY beauty treatments. Whether it be our nails or our hair, now more than ever we're learning how to perfect the services we usually enlist others to perform. One of those services is our manicures, which we admit can be a little hard to do ourselves. However, unlike hair color, manicures are an easy case of trial and error and don't have to result in permanent damage. 

So ahead, check out 10 products you'll need to create a salon-level manicure that won't break the bank.
