    I got this thing at the start of quarantine when I didn’t have a job and desperately needed a hobby. And let me tell you, it did wonders for my anxiety. I’ve always liked drawing and painting, but never got serious enough to build a stock of supplies. So, while I was scouring the internet for fun stuff to distract myself with, I came across this baby. It’s Wacom’s “beginner” model that doesn’t cost $1,000.

    It comes with a stylus, ten extra nibs, and three design programs.

    "I'm not a fan of regular polish (mainly because I'm just too impatient to let it dry), and I definitely don't have the skills to even attempt acrylic nails. So I thought gel polish would be a happy medium. I chose this one because it doesn't have a base, meaning I can just pop it over my feet when I'm painting my toenails." —May Ning

    And don't forget to grab a gel top coat to cure those nails to perfection.
