There is nothing more frustrating than getting a manicure–or doing one yourself–and having it chip within a couple days. Ugh!
The fact of the matter is, however, sometimes there’s just no avoiding. But instead of going overboard and booking a whole new mani appointment for one small chip, get creative girl! Here are four quick and easy ways to fix chipped polish without having to start from scratch.
Tip 1: If the chip is on the end of your nail, try clipping the nail down to remove the chip and re-filing.
Tip 2: If the chip is in a different area, use a toothpick to dab a tiny amount of nail polish over the chip then let it dry. If needed, use a buffer to smooth it out.
Tip 3: If the chip is small, use glitter polish to go over it and create an accent nail. Don’t forget to paint the same nail on the other hand!
Tip 4: If the chip is on the larger side, put some clear tape on the part of the nail that is fine and paint over the chip with the original color. Once that section is dry, remove the tape and cover your entire nail with a layer of top coat.
