Fact: it takes a special talent (and seriously steady hands) to give yourself a good manicure at home.

For those of us missing one-or both- of these qualities, YSL has the answer. Their French Manicure Kit includes 2 nail pens that promise to deliver a manicure that rivals the ones from the salon.

It's the easiest way to get a jump start on the classic, girly beauty look that crept up on the S/S'11 runways everywhere from Jason Wu to 3.1 Phillip Lim.

At $44 for the set, they're not exactly cheap, but this DIY option is definitely less expensive than the professional version. And hey, practice makes perfect.

Buy them at YSL.
