Do you know what brand nail polish stays on longest? Mine always comes off within a couple days.

  • I always have good luck with OPI. The less polish you put on the longer it stays on.

  • OPI is awesome. It's pretty much the only brand I will wear anymore, and it lasts until I take it off because my nails are getting too grown out and look funny with a gap by the cuticle. At least a week, which is by far the longest nail polish has ever lasted for me. I always use a base and top coat too, which helps to make it last longer.

  • OPI seems to stay on fairly well. of course, if you have oily nail beds, or are in lots of water, use moisturizers alot...not much will stay long. there is a new product some salons are using called 'shellac' that is supposed to be the end-all of nail chips!! idk, haven't tried it myself.

  • OPI is awesome, but i heard theres a new nail polish, but its gel polish. supposly last 2 weeks, but idk the brand of it. i think OPI makes there own now but it might cost a little more

  • I apply a quick drying top coat on a daily basis if I want my manicure to last. I can usually keep it from chipping for a week.

  • I have to agree with OPI. Its best to put a clear coat, then the color, then another clear least thats what a salon worker told me...
