We're right in the middle of Fashion Month, which means we barely have time to eat and sleep, let alone get a manicure. After a few days of digging in our purses for our iPhones and notebooks, our nails are predictably trashed - but luckily there's a two-minute fix that camouflages chips without having to start a whole new manicure from scratch.The trick? A glitter topcoat. Just paint it on right over your chipped polish for an instant fix.
The chunkier the glitter, the better this works - so try one with larger flakes, such as Deborah Lippmann
's Va Va Voom
). Not only do the sparkly bits fill in polish dings, the light catching effect helps distract from any imperfections in your base color.
We're especially loving the new speckle topcoats this fall. These formulas use multicolored matte glitter particles to create a paint splatter effect on nails. Try Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots
in Clearly Spotted
) or Formula X The Explosives
($10.50-$12.50, available at Sephora stores and sephora.com in October).More from DailyMakeover:10 Fashion Week Beauty Tricks That Will Blow You AwayHow to Get Beautiful Skin While You SleepFollow These 3 Steps for a Perfect Ponytail Every TimeSee Inside Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady's $20 Million Mansion (Including Their Bedroom!)Photo Credit: Courtesy of DailyMakeover
