What can you do to extend the longevity of a regular polish manicure?

I always tell people to add a second layer of top coat to your nails the day after you get them done to help stave off chipping.

What are a few quick-fix nail products that you should always keep in your carry-on?

A file is the most important thing to have to fix a chipped or broken nail. It’s also always a good idea to travel with a bottle of your favorite quick-dry top coat for emergencies.

If you’re leaving for an impromptu trip and you don’t have time for a manicure, what can you do to glam up your nails on the go?

One of my favorite tools is a nail buffer with multiple abrasive sides. They have a soft polishing side, which you can use to buff your nails for a shiny finish. If you can’t go without some color on your nails, nail art strips can be applied in transit and are a inoffensive-smelling alternative to painting your nails, which your neighbors will thank you for.
