A Holiday Manicure That Won’t Chip off in the Turkey

It’s happened to all of us. No matter how pristine your manicure before you head home for the holidays, it’s as if you never even tried as soon as someone asks for your help in the kitchen. Gone is the shiny top coat, and then it’s only a matter of time before your mother points out the chipping. So what’s a helpful gal to do this time of year?

We know that sometimes the only times in your schedule to get a manicure are the off hours the salons aren’t open, so to replicate the strength and long-lasting effects of a gel mani at home, we’re reaching for Deborah Lippmann’s Gel Lab, a base and top coat that seals in shine and gives you the strength and durability your hardworking hands need.

No UV light needed, no weird remover required. And it works with whatever color you want.

Just one more thing to be thankful for.
