    The single nail chip

    Use a different, darker polish to repaint the nail. Add a design or some glitter polish to glam up your hand.

    A chip at the tip

    Try a colorful French manicure. Place tape on your nail so only the tip is exposed. Then paint the tip a different color…problem solved.

    On the side

    Got a chip on just the side of your nail? Use a thin paintbrush or a nail art pen to paint a stripe over where your nail is chipped in a fun color. Use black or white for a sleek, polished look.
