So what’s a frequent chipper to do? First, you should always make sure to clean the bare nail beds thoroughly. The area should feel super dry prior to application. The best way to ensure a long-lasting manicure is to reapply a top coat every couple of days to freshen the manicure and increase durability. On top of that, use a hand mist (or rub with lemon if you don’t have one on hand) to help mattify and cleanse the cuticle area.
If you’re not afraid of a bit of sparkle, glitter topper polish as a good option for those with oily cuticles as they tend to have more grip on the nails.
Ultimately, it’s all about balance: Moisturized nails are great—just don’t overdo it. A weaker, thinner, and the more damaged nail plate can just as easily contribute to a short-lived manicure, so be sure to follow up your at-home hacks with nourishing nail products, especially if you switch up your polish often.
