Cap­ping the free edge of nails—paint­ing over the tips when ap­ply­ing base coat, colour and top­coat—will en­sure that the man­i­cure lasts longer than some Hol­ly­wood mar­riages.

Pol­ish on your cu­ti­cles not only looks like ama­teur hour but can also shorten the life of your mani. “As your nails grow, oil residue can seep un­der­neath the bot­tom of the nails where the nailpol­ish bond is bro­ken. It will cause your pol­ish to lift and peel,” says man­i­curist Wendy Rorong.

Mo’ pol­ish, mo’ prob­lems: The more coats you ap­ply, the thicker the pol­ish and the more likely your mani will chip.

Chip the tip of your nail clean­ing the bath­room? First, del­e­gate that chore forever­more. Sec­ond, grab a com­ple­men­tary shade of pol­ish and ap­ply only on your tips, French-man­i­cure-style. Hello, new nail look.
