Want your pedicure to go the extra mile? Cheat by painting nails with a neutral or clear polish. My pedicures can last more than a month without obvious chips because I always opt for a light pink. It looks great with a tan, but isn't obvious as the weeks wear on that I haven't had a pedicure in awhile. My friends who get bright pinks or reds have to be more careful, nail growth and chips are very obvious.
