Not only do these come in gorgeous shades that will stay on your nails for a week, but they are a perfectly portable size, or “Glosstinis” as Cover Girl calls them.

Just six steps to your shiniest manicure yet.

1.File your nails in one direction starting at the edges and moving toward the top.

2.Soak in soapy water for a few minutes to soften cuticles.

3.Instead of trimming cuticles, which can lead to weak nails and infection, push back cuticles with a wooden nail stick.

4.Massage hands with a hand lotion for extra moisture.

5.Remove any moisturizer or old nail polish with non-acetone nail polish remover.

6.Apply two coats of Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis. Start at the side and apply in three strokes, one on each side and one in the middle.
