Sometimes painting my nails doesn’t even seem worth the effort because I know I’ll end up chipping the polish within 48 hours. Then I’ll just be the lady walking around with chipped nail polish…because you know that if I put the effort into painting the nails two days earlier, I’m not going to put in more effort just to take that polish off. Oh, yes, I could try and touch-up the paint job. But that never looks good.
One recent morning, I was ruminating over this conundrum (big words for a post about nail polish!) and came up with a fabulous solution: to cover up the chipped tips with decorative nail polish brush.
With a complimentary color, I simply drew vertical lines from different starting places up to the tip. It looked best when the lines had a bit of space between them. The great thing about this technique is that no nail needs to look exactly the same. Plus the small, straight lines made it easy to get the same effect when using my non-dominant hand.
Chips covered in less than 5 minutes!
