We’ve all had it happen before – after receiving a magnificent manicure and paint job on your nails, an unsightly chip rears its ugly head. This can quickly put a damper on your day, but it doesn’t have to be the end of your pretty nails! There are a few steps you can take to repair the chip and keep it from happening again in the future.
1. Bust out the nail polish
Whether you have the nail polish originally used or one in a similar color, now is the time to whip it out. Delicately add a drop of it to your chip, then re-apply a second coat to make this area level with the rest of the polish on your nail.
2. Grab a top coat
Once the spot has dried, apply a drop of clear top coat to the chipped area to keep it from returning. If you’re extra concerned, go ahead and add a second coat for reassurance.
3. Exercise caution
If your nails aren’t standing up to the test of time, Daily Glow recommends avoiding activities that can make the situation worse. Don’t open cans or use zippers without caution!
