I don’t go anywhere without an emergency supply of nail polish remover, so in a pinch, I can prevent the picking by just removing all the polish in one fell swoop. Or swipe.
Sephora Collection Instant Nail Polish Remover—This is perfect for an office desk drawer. The all-in-one design means no need to keep cotton balls on hand. ($9.50, Sephora)
Deborah Lippmann “The Stripper to Go” Lacquer Remover Mitts—One of these bad boys fits right into a wallet, making them supremely portable. And since they’re sturdy fabric, not flimsy cotton, they remove glitter polish in a flash. ($12 for 6, Nordstrom)
Topshop Nail Varnish Remover—These soft wipes are the ultimate travel polish remover, so they mostly live in my suitcase. (What? You don’t do mid-vacay manicures?) ($3 for 20 wipes, Topshop)
OPI Corrector Pen—Let’s say you were doing a manicure at your desk and you got a little sloppy. (I’ve never done this, I’m just saying.)This pen is perfect for fixing flubs. ($7.95, Ulta)
