Don't have enough time to polish your nails before heading out? No problem.

All you need is a nail buffer to make your nails look nice, as celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees shows us in the latest episode of #CandidlyNicole. Kyees, the skilled hands behind nail art seen on Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicole Richie herself, pulled out her "Magic Purple Buffer" to transform Richie's guy pal Derek Blasberg's nails from gross to gorgeous.

Use the dark side to gently buff your nails and then glide the lighter side on top to add shine. Kyees recommends only doing this once a week, as excessive filing can lead to thin and brittle nails.

Watch the video above to see how this nail pro gets the job done.
