It's all the the base/top coat....
This is something I have recently learned the hard way after weeks and weeks of fighting god-awful chipping nails. If, you are OCD like me, the very thought of chipped polish makes you crinkle your nose. It is probably one of my biggest fashion pet-peeves. I adore nail polish and really prefer my nails to be polished over bare, because I just find that if you have any sort of length to your nails, they just look so much better with polish on them.
Anyways, that being said, I also HATE having to re-polish my nails day after day because of chipping. This led me to writing this post because I thought it would be nice of me to save you all the trouble of learning this small little lesson on your own.
Let me start off by saying, this is the magic weapon that makes your professional manicure last so much longer then the one you do on yourself. Most nail salons choose this base coat for all their clients. It is a rubberized formula that really bonds the polish to your nail while also protecting you natural nail from becoming dehydrated from the polish. I've skipped base coats for so long now I forgot how amazing this stuff is. I just bought and used it again today and it made my polish go on so much more smoothly.
Let me know your guys' manicure tips and tricks. <3
