Gel polish may last longer than regular formulas, but—oops!— sometimes even the strongest manicure can chip.

IF YOU DID IT YOURSELF: First smooth the chipped area by gently buffing the nail’s surface. According to manicurist Jin Soon Choi, if you used an at-home kit spot apply two coats of color on top of the chip, curing each one as directed. Apply topcoat and cure it again for a quick remedy!

IF YOU WENT TO A SALON: If you got your mani done in a salon, find a close shade in a regular polish, touch up the area, and then apply a high gloss topcoat. “CND and OPI have regular and gel polish with the same names, so it’s easy to match those up,” says manicurist Julie Kandalec.
