Fake a Manicure
If your mornings are so hectic that your breakfast consists of two bites of the leftover pizza, then chances are you don't have time for a manicure. But that doesn't mean you have to step out into the world with dull nails. Instead of putting on a coat of color, quickly buff your nails for shine, and swipe on a clear nail strengthener for that polished look without the mess. Try OPI's Start to Finish ($14), which is formaldehyde free and can be multi-purposed — it's a topcoat, base coat, and strengthener all in one.
