Deborah Lippmann notoriously produces the best glitters—the huge hexagonal pieces generally guarantee almost full sparkle coverage with one coat. And it’s this quality that makes them ideal for a messy French-tip inspired manicure, especially over top polish that’s chipped after a few days of wear. Roll the brush around the lip of the bottle to pick up as much glitter as possible, and then dab it along the tip of each nail. It’s a fix that’s so fast we swear you can do it at your desk before anyone notices.
