Quick DIY Nail Fix

We’ve all been there. You’re running out the door to meet a friend for dinner or heading into a work meeting and right when look down to grab your keys, you notice your mani is looking a little less than fresh. Well, here are some fixes to solve this dilemma:

Refresh Color: Dab a little nail polish remover on your chipped nail to help loosen and liquefy the chipped area. Let it dry a few seconds, then paint over the entire nail. This works like filling putty in a wall and will give you a seamless finish.

Accent Nail: The accent nail started making its way into magazines a few months ago and has been popping up ever since. Although this hasn’t been proven, I’m convinced it was invented as a quick fix for a chipped nail! Just paint your chipped nail with a complementary polish and voila! You have yourself an accent nail. Try L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Color for $5.99 from Walgreens.com.

Glitter Polish: This one may be a little more adventurous, but it’s a fun look if you have casual plans. If all of your nails look like they’ve been through a beating, try putting a layer of glitter polish over your chipped manicure. The glitter will help to distract from the chips and will give your manicure a much-needed pick-me-up. Added bonus, most glitter polishes are suspended in a clear “top coat” polish. This makes it dry quickly and gives a shiny finish. Try Nails Inc. Nail Jewelry for $9.50 from Sephora.com.
