QUICK FIX: When you hit the pool or ocean, your nail plate sucks up water and expands. Once you get out, it shrinks back causing your nail polish to crack and chip. If you’re wearing pale polish, camouflage any cracks by smoothing jagged polish with a nail buffer. If dark polish has chipped, lightly dab remover over the chip to lessen the damage, then apply another thin coat of colour.
SUMMER STRATEGY: Wipe oil or an oily lotion over your nail polish before hitting the water. This trick fills your nail plate with oil and protects your polish.
