Here is what I use for a quick manicure.
different nail files
cuticle softener pen
Sometimes when I have more time I do a peeling and a hand bath before I start shortening my nails.
Nail Polish Color
Fast Dry Top Coat
Recently I discovered the nail primer by p2. I am not 100% sure but it feels like it makes my nail polish really last longer. Nail hardener as a base coat is a must for me as well before I use color. And as I am a bit impatient I have to use a fast dry top coat. This one is from L'Oreal but I like as well the one from Sally Hansen (in a red bottle).
