No Chip, No Kidding

Now, I'm not a nail polish fan. Why? Well, because despite all of my efforts and the gazillion nail polish brands I've tried, my manicure doesn't last me two days. I've found that my Chanel polish is as good as my Wet N Wild and that OPI may last me a little longer, but nothing to fuzz about. Although, I must confess that I've learned some tips to make your manicure last, like buffing your nails since the ridges actually make them chip faster and having an oil free nail base since your natural oils prevent the polish from really adhere to the nail. But all this may only make a very little difference until I discover Sally Hansen NO CHIP 10 Day Nail Color. At first I was skeptical, but at $4.49 it was worth the try, so I put this top coat up to a challenge. If it lasts me at least 5 days I would be more than happy. Well, I painted my nails with a beautiful, but cheap, Cover Girl pink color and coated it with Hansen's No Chip Top Coat. Today is the fourth day and it looks as fresh and shiny as the first one, I'm not kidding, my nails are so shiny they actually look like patent leather. How awesome is that!?! Sally Hansen NO CHIP 10 Day Color is keeping its promise. So far, so good. I'll keep you guys posted on the final number (of days with an intact manicure), but this is the longest I've gone without my polish chipping off so I'm sold.

I paint my nails obsessively...partially because I wear dark colors that chip really easily, but I love Sally Hansen stuff. I use the Insta-Dri top coat. It actually drys really quickly and it lasts pretty long. woo hoo for Sally Hansen!
