How to Fix Chipped Nail Polish


If your manicure is more than a week old when it chips, it's probably time for a new one. Otherwise you can easily remedy chips that occur between manicure sessions.

Things You'll Need

  • Clear Nail Polish Or Polish Sealant
  • Cotton Ball
  • Nail Polish
  • Nail-polish Remover

Moisten your index fingertip with nail-polish remover on the hand that doesn't have the chipped nail.

Rub this finger on the chipped area to smooth away any globs or rough edges.

Let it dry and then brush a small amount of nail polish on the chipped area.

After the polish has dried, apply a clear coat of nail polish or polish sealant to prevent future chipping.

Wipe the polish residue off your fingertip with a cotton ball and nail-polish remover.

Avoid fast-drying polishes, which tend to chip more easily.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use toothpaste to remove ink stains from polish.
  • Acetone-based nail-polish removers dry out nails, which can cause them to split or break.
