Manicures make your hands look immaculate…for about a week — if you’re lucky.

If you’re like me, your nail polish begins to chip about three or four days after a fresh coat of salon-applied polish. Worst part? Once that first chip appears, it’s like the first snowflake of winter — before you knew it there’s a flurry of flaws all over your fingers. A blizzard of bad.

And really, how’s a modern gal supposed to keep her nails looking pretty? Anything from cooking to opening up a can of soda can potentially cause a chip. It all just makes you feel like a manicure is a waste of money. But what if you could save your manicure from a chip-tastrophe?

What if there was a simple thing you could do to save it your manicure like camouflaging the chips?

Well, what if I told you there is a way to do that!

In the video below, we show you an easy beauty hack that will let you cover up any fingernail faultiness with just a bottle of white nail polish (or any lighter polish color), Sharpie markers, rubbing alcohol, and a paintbrush.

It’s so simple and smart I’m going to try this next time my nails chip — which, unfortunately, just happened right now…
