How to fix chipped nail polish (like a lazy beauty editor)
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 ($19, deborahlippmann.com). 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 ($3.99, maybelline.com) or Formula X The Explosives ($10.50-$12.50, available at Sephora stores and sephora.com in October).
