The Lazy-Girl Way to Make a Manicure Last for Weeks
So you’re not awkwardly hiding your fingers
We'd love nothing more than to look prim and polished at all times. But we also have lives—and sometimes that does not allow for a two-hour appointment at the nail salon (or even our kitchen table at, like, midnight on a Thursday). Thankfully, we've discovered the easiest manicure trick of all time.
What you need: A bottle of clear, glittered topcoat (we love Essie's Sparkle on Top).
What you do: Clean up and file your nails as you normally would. Then, simply swipe on a coat of the sparkling polish.
Why it works: Well, for starters, it takes all of two minutes to apply. And because you're using a clear polish with just a hint of shine, you don't have to worry about nicks, chips, mistakes or that awkward growing-out stage between reapplications. To the untrained eye, you come across as a stylish lady who would never step out the door without a proper mani. It'll be our little secret.
