There are a lot of things you can accomplish at your desk – you can dump your daily dose of super foods and supplements, do a quick shoe swap from sneakers to stilettos, scan the new arrivals to update your (knowingly unattainable) wish list and, and new favourite way to multi-task, give yourself the quickest manicure ever – guaranteed to make the best of any bad situation in the nail department.

Whether they’re dry, brittle, cracked or bitten-down to the nail bed, this four-step makeover will have them looking happy, healthy and shiny again quicker than you can Command-M (minimise non-work related window, duh).

The best part? It takes one product, and one product only. The rest is probably already sitting in your top drawer.
