Ok, so i have stopped wearing tips and i am wearing my natural nails. i usually use sinful colors nail polish, mostly, but i notice after a few hand washes, maybe after a day or two, the polish starts breaking up and coming off making my nails look TERRIBLE! Help! what do i use to keep my polish on for more then 2days? ugh! for the last week, i have had nothing on my nails cause i hate looking at them now. smh. is there a top coat i should be using? or should i just give up..... :(
Try Seche Vite or Essie Good To Go topcoat, those are the ones most lasting for me
(though I find my polish chips when my nails itself are kinda "chippy")
oh and wrap the polish around the edges of your nails, that helps too
Try using a gel topcoat.
Thx Ladies! im on my way to the beauty supply now! :)
A good base coat always makes my polish last longer, and applying in two or three thinner coats makes it more resilient, from my experience.
Also, Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat. I can't stress that enough.
Try Orly bonder as a base coat. Normally when I do my nails at home and use a bonder, my nails tend to last for about a week.
A gel top coat might be the best way to go ( but make sure you are also using a gel basecoat, in order for it to bond to the nail). If you find that every base and top coat you are using are not helping, it is probably just the oils on your nail. Everyone is different.
