The disaster when your freshly manicured nails are destroyed by chipped nails! I can imagine the pain as I go through that almost every month. If you’re like me, you’d rather walk around naked (without polish, I mean) than with an imperfect paint job, then this blog is totally apt for us! Chipped nails are sadly unavoidable – whether if it’s after one day (because you naughtily didn’t apply a top and/or base coat) or after five. So here are some ways to fix chipped nail!
- File it away – One of the easiest ways to resolve is one on the tip of your nail. You just simply have to file down the length and apply your topcoat again to re-seal the nail. Then the other nine nails may need to be adjusted to keep the manicure uniform and incoherent with the form.
- Let’s patch it – Put on a thin layer of polish towards the chipped area before applying top coat to hide the sides of the wet blob. This guarantees the patch integrates into the other parts of the nail. Remember to apply it thoroughly.
- Nail clippers to the rescue – It is normal for you to do that when you have chipped nails. Chips commonly occur on the top side of the nail, where most contact through everyday routines happens. Having a nail clipper, snip from the chip without removing a lot of length off of the nail, as well as adjust some other nails to match up. As soon as you’ve removed the chip, put on a clear top coating and cover the actual polish along the tip of the nail, leading the polish brush from left to right to left to cover it. This may be the quickest remedy, but it can actually reduce the life of your manicure because colored nails that are already filed or trimmed are susceptible to more chipping because the seal at the tip area of the nail is worn out.
- How about a dress up – If you have chipped nails doesn’t mean that you had to do an entire hand polish. Better, get a metallic or even a glittery nail formula and put on a few layers through the damaged nail, till the flaw is not noticeable. French tip could be a good option to hide this flaw, but you may try stripes or dots too. And when you’re feeling daring, a few drops of superglue and small rhinestone is going to do the technique but make sure it won’t look overwhelming.
