I don't wear one manicure for a longer period of time. I actually change my nail polish quite often and it's not all because of me being a polish junkie or because of this blog. The main reason is chipping. It doesn't really matter which brand of nail polish I'm using, they all chip on me sooner or later. Usually sooner - it mostly happens within a day after me putting the mani on. I consider myself a really lucky girl if I manage to get through the first day without chips. It's driving me crazy.
I used to use a fast drying top coat (Seche, 'David') and it used to be a must-have for me. Later I convinced myself I didn't really need one - neither Seche Vite neither David are available where I live and I was tired of having to order a tiny bottle from the ''other side of the world''. What followed was a topless part of my manicure life. Until my Depend Cracked Effect mani. That's when I used Essence Nail Art Sealing Top Coat for the first time. I liked the manicure so much, I knew I wasn't gonna remove it until it chips (and it should happen in a relatively short amount of time). It didn't chip. I thought that was weird and ''blamed'' it on the awesome Depend crackle.
The next time I used sealing top coat was with the Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract nail polish.
This is how my manicure looks on day 3. I can't believe my eyes. No chips, no tipwear. Usually I just look at my nails and the polish chips away. I washed my hair today and that means I got to massage my head, soak my nails in shampoo and hot water and whatnot for 10 minutes. It didn't chip. Then I washed the dishes in hot, hot water (without the gloves of course). And here they are. My nails after all the horror, chip free. I'll keep using this top coat to see if it's really the reason for my freakishly long lasting nail polish.
Ladies, this might be the best top coat ever...
