All-in-one polishes, cool top coats and stick-on shades provide quick and handy ways to cut the minutes you spend on manicures.
By Dori Katz
Color-wise, innovations are endless. Manicures take on a new level of quickness with all-in-one lacquers that include base, top and color coats.
Supercool crackle top coats give new life to three-day-old manis, and hide nicks pretty well too.
If there's no time to dry, opt for a stick-on shade or print. The strips are made from real polish—so removal is the same—and they can last up to 10 days without chipping.
