I call bullshit, Sally Hansen.



LESS than 12 hours after painting (WITH a top coat)



And people wonder why I like chipped nail polish. It's easier to maintain. No matter if I spend $1 on a bottle or $8 with OPI and Essie (oh!! Does anyone else remember the craze with Chanel's Vamp? God, I loved that color), it's chipped within the first few hours.

Anyone have any good tricks on how to prevent this? You know, for one day when I care about being classy. (yes, according to the bible- Cosmo- chipped red is the tackiest thing imaginable). But I do think chipped or not, it's a good change from the black (for now).

A guy's perspective: Nail polish looks SO good on You ladies! I wish there was a cure for chipping.

I'm so hard on a manicure, too. I try, I really do, but it always chips. If you find a good polish, you let us know!!

mine is called naughty and it chipped the next day. We're on day... 5 now and a few are chipped. I should probably remove it.

I read a tip in a magazine....

something like wiping nails with something to keep them from chipping. I can't remember where I read it (one of those little cheap mags,a nd I can't remember what it said.)

this is going to drive me crazy.

I think it was use a cotton ball and rub it with olive oil or something.
