Get Polished

"Prepping nails properly is key to ensuring a chip-free, long-lasting pedicure," explains Choi. Start by taking off any greasy residue with an acetone-free remover and applying a strengthening basecoat. Next, swipe on two thin layers of polish (allowing two minutes between each) before finishing with a quick-drying topcoat. "Pay extra attention to the tips, since that's where lacquer tends to peel first."

MC TIP: Keep your nails looking fresh by applying a high-gloss topcoat twice a week to protect polish and restore shine.
