The Ten Minute Manicure

If your polish is chipping but you don’t have time for a full-blown manicure, take iVillage Beauty Nail Expert Deborah Lippmann's advice and give yourself this quick-and-easy manicure:

STEP 1 Remove nail polish.

STEP 2 File nails where necessary using single strokes towards the center of nail from the sides.

STEP 3 Take a buffer and gently rub along the base of your nail where cuticles may be rough and overgrown.

STEP 4 Liberally apply cuticle oil and massage it into nails.

STEP 5 Apply hand lotion often to keep nails moisturized.
