There’s nothing worse than getting a cute manicure in this season’s trendiest shade before a big trip only to have it chip a couple days in. But there is one simple hack to ensure your nails stay fresh—and you can keep the tool right in your carry-on.

In addition to keeping your top coat on hand throughout your trip to reapply whenever your polish starts looking dull or you feel the edges bubbling loose, stick some trusty cuticle oil in your bag, too.

“For a chip-free-and-versatile mani, you want to use plenty of cuticle oil. Cuticle oil not only keeps your nails healthy and flexible, but it also keeps your nail polish pliable. A more flexible polish means less cracks and chips.” —Pinsi Lei

“For a chip-free-and-versatile mani, you want to use plenty of cuticle oil,” writer Pinsi Lei notes in The Chill Times, the new publication from uber-chic New York City nail mecca Chillhouse. “Cuticle oil not only keeps your nails healthy and flexible, but it also keeps your nail polish pliable. A more flexible polish means less cracks and chips.” By making sure your nails stay nice and moisturized, you can extend your manicure throughout your entire trip, no chips included.

And if you’d rather not deal with polish in the first place, you’re in luck: Naked nails are the new “pastels” this spring.

Here are three reasons to opt for a waterless manicure. Or, find out how no-chip gel manicures just got much healthier.
