My expectation is that a manicure should last a week; of course, that’s not always the case (and also, that’s not to say I get one every week, because I definitely don’t!). Not only am I terrible at painting my own nails but I tend to wear through a manicure quicker than most. When a glittery polish caught my eye, I decided I could cover up my ragged manicure with some quick swipes to the tips of my nails where chips were present. As you can see from the pictures, the manicure was definitely grown out (see: jagged cuticles) but this did the trick in a pinch and ultimately saved me both time and money.

the only acceptable form of frosted tips (as far as i’m concerned)
Quick math: If you currently get manicures every week and changed extended it to bi-weekly by adding some glitter to the chipped tips, you’d save about $390 per year* (assuming it’s $15/manicure, including tip)
